On Nov. 3, 2020, Trump campaign adviser Harlan Hill said he’d livestream himself eating his shoe if Joe Biden won the presidential election.
Don’t bother searching YouTube for a video of Hill eating his shoe, it doesn’t exist. When Mediate asked Hill if he planned to keep his word and eat his shoe, he answered, “Trump won.”
Hill wasn’t the only Republican politician who on Election Day and the weeks following insisted that Trump won, although they didn’t put their foot in their mouth by promising to eat a shoe if Biden won.
Thousands of evangelical ministers prophesied that Trump would win including Pat Robertson, Paula White-Cain, Greg Locke and Jeremiah Johnson. Only a handful have publicly apologized, any many still insist that Trump actually won.
The punishment specified for false prophets in the Old Testament was severe: “If any prophet dares to speak a message in My name that I have not commanded him to speak, or to speak in the name of other gods, that prophet must be put to death” (Deuteronomy 18:20).
I’m not as harsh as the Jehovah of the Old Testament but I do wish that clowns like Robertson and Locke who assured their followers that the Almighty Himself had told them that Trump was going to win would eat shit and die, or at least eat a pair of old sneakers.
Millions of QAnon cultists and evangelicals swallowed Trump’s Big Lie and still believe that Trump won and Joe Biden is an illegitimate president.
The Bible says that the devil is a liar and the father of lies. These Trump-supporting evangelicals have been deceived by one of the devil’s biggest lies, that Trump is a messiah figure who was cheated out of victory.
I don’t expect evangelicals to have an epiphany or to acknowledge reality by presenting them with facts and evidence, they are willfully blind. I simply write them off, only citizens who believe the truth and cherish the truth can join us who voted for Biden in building a more perfect union.
