Things You Can’t Unsee: Donald Trump as Baby Yoda

Donald Trump has the patience and attention span of a colicky baby, it’s no surprise that he’s often called a “man baby” and often depicted as a baby by political cartoonists.

An inflatable caricature of Trump known as Trump Baby has flown in countless demonstrations all over the world. My most horrifying nightmare is that when I’m raptured to meet Christ is the air, I’m intercepted by Trump Baby and dragged down to hell.

Even Donald Trump Jr. depicted his infantile father as a baby, he shared a doctored image on Instagram depicting his dad as Baby Yoda from the new Disney Plus “Star Wars” spinoff series “The Mandalorian.”

Arguably Baby Yoda is the most beloved character from the Star Wars franchise and there’s a special place reserved in hell for Trump Jr. for desecrating the image of Baby Yoda.

Trump as Baby Yoda is almost as disturbing and mind-numbing as Trump as President of the United States.

For the love of God let’s put this man baby on permanent time-out on election day 2020.

Eulogist at Qassem Soleimani’s Funeral Calls for Trump’s Assassination! What Do You Think?

A eulogist at the funeral procession of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani has called for President Donald Trump to be assassinated.

“Anyone who brings the yellow haired lunatic to us will get 80 million dollars from the Iranian people”, said the grief-stricken and outraged mourner.

He wasn’t alone in his grief and outrage at the Trump administration, more than a million people took to the streets of Tehran to pay their respects to the iconic Iranian military and political leader, and to vent their anger at the aforementioned yellow haired lunatic.

It shouldn’t be surprising that Iranians are calling for the assassination of Trump, “an eye for an eye” is a proverb that everyone in the Middle East lives by. If Trump ordered the assassination of an Iranian government official naturally the patriotic people of Iran are calling out for the blood of the feckless leader of America.

I didn’t shed any tears when Soleimani was murdered, the blood of hundreds of American soldiers and tens of thousands of Syrian and Iraqi civilians are in his hands, and likewise I won’t shed any tears if Trump is assassinated, he has destroyed democracy, civility and morality in the homeland and he has made America a worldwide laughingstock.

Defending Trump Won’t Spark Revival in the Evangelical Movement, It Will Only Incur the Wrath of God

In a recent speech in Louisiana, President Donald Trump commended evangelicals for supporting him in the fraught contest over impeachment. He said church leaders were telling him that impeachment was fostering spiritual revival: ‘I got a call from the evangelical leaders the other day, a whole lot of them. They said the church has never been more energized as it is right now because of what they’re trying to do to our president,’ Trump said.”

The Dallas Morning News

Historically the Christian church has been revived when Christians renounce materialism and secularism, and return to the foundations of their faith: prayer, reading the Bible and proclaiming the Gospel.

There is never a political component to true revival, revival doesn’t emanate from Washington, D.C, but from churches, large and small, throughout the country returning to the basics of Christianity.

Anti-abortion judges appointed by the president, or laws bringing prayer back to school won’t spark revival. You can’t legislate morality or revival, revival is a spiritual manifestation, not a political movement.

The controversy over impeachment isn’t fostering a spiritual revival. Consider how absurd it is to argue that for Christians to defend a morally compromised, politically corrupt, racist, homophobic, greedy and serial sexual predator is going to foster spiritual revival in the American church.

If white evangelicals are serious about being spiritually energized, they will speak truth to power, and call upon Donald Trump to repent of his racism, xenophobia, misogyny, homophobia, corruption, and moral degeneracy.

Donald Trump to Evangelicals: ‘God is on our Side

Donald Trump is courting evangelicals following a scathing editorial in Christianity Today (CT).  The editor of the mainstream evangelical publication questioned whether evangelicals could justify supporting Trump given his grievous moral failings.

The CT essay is an aberration, the vast majority of white evangelicals are enthralled by their Orange Messiah, and Trump doesn’t have to worry about losing their support.

The short-fingered vulgarian is trying to expand his support beyond white evangelicals by speaking at a Hispanic megachurch in Florida, telling the congregation that “we have God on our side”.

The most successful con artists never doubt their ability to sell a bill of goods to anyone, and the amoral, greedy, serial sexual predator figures that if he was able to persuade white evangelicals that he’s the Second Coming, then he might even win over Hispanic evangelicals even though he’s blatantly anti-immigrant and anti-people of color.

Hispanic evangelicals who support the stable genius should be ostracized by real Christians and disowned by their Latino brothers and sisters.

Real Christians don’t worry whether or not the Almighty is on their side, they seek to be on God’s side by ministering to the prisoners, immigrants and the poor and homeless.

You don’t have to be a theologian to deduce that God isn’t on the side of Trump and his Republican sycophants. The enmity that Trump and white evangelicals harbor toward immigrants, people of color, and gays and Lesbians are anathema to the peace-loving, merciful and gracious Jesus of the Gospels.

Trump Tied With Obama as the Most Admired Man in America

“For the first time ever, President Donald Trump tied with his predecessor, Barack Obama, as the most admired man in America this year, according to the annual poll from Gallup. 2019 marks Obama’s 12th year at the top of the list, tying him with former president Dwight Eisenhower.

Trump has never before topped the list, which is compiled by asking Americans to name which living man and woman they admire most. The question is open-ended.”

Yahoo News

Donald Trump tied with Barack Obama as the most admired man in America.

This isn’t a headline from the satirical publication “The Onion” and the poll wasn’t conducted by the Trump-friendly “Rasmussen Reports” but by the highly respected “Gallup” company.

What can we glean from this headline other than the hoofbeats of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are deafening?

The incumbent U.S. president is usually the choice for America’s most admired living man, even if he is a racist, ignorant and blithering idiot like Trump. Out of 72 prior polls, the incumbent president has placed first 58 times.

Hopefully, Americans will come to their senses in 2020 and Trump won’t be reelected and he will completely disappear from this poll.

The results of this poll speak of the intellectual laziness of Americans, by default they name the current occupant of the White House as the man they admire the most without contemplating if he’s had a positive or negative impact on society.

This poll also reflects the undying loyalty of Trump supporters, they would vote for the short-fingered vulgarian as the most admired living man even if Jesus Christ returned and lived in Idaho.

You’d think that an amoral buffoon like Trump would be thrilled that he’s tied with Obama as the most admired man in America, but I’m sure he’s furious that he can’t overcome the legacy of his predecessor.

More Gun Control! More Firearms Training! Less Gun Worship! Less Open Carry!

I’m a progressive who believes in sensible gun control and I also own a shotgun and a handgun, and the two things aren’t mutually exclusive.

I live in an open carry state, however I don’t feel a psychological or political need to walk around with a gun to establish my Second Amendment credentials.

I don’t measure freedom by how many citizens walk around with gun. If I visit a town where most people are toting assault weapons or handguns, I’m not thinking, “This is a cradle of liberty and freedom, I’m moving here.”

I feel safe with my loaded firearm under my bed, but I don’t feel the need to take it with me wherever I go. I rely on the police to serve and protect me with I’m out in public, but I rely on my guns to protect me when I’m home until the police arrive.

Republican men (I’ve never seen a woman in public openly carrying a gun) who worship guns and brandish them to compensate for their physical shortcomings are giving the Second Amendment a bad name.

Guns shouldn’t be a phallic symbol or an object of worship, they are simply tools to be used for hunting and self-defense.

I remember a time when almost everyone had a gun but nobody bragged about how many guns they owned, and they certainly didn’t walk around strapped.

I will feel safer when there are less idiots walking around carrying assault weapons, and speaking about their weapons in reverential terms.

More gun control. More firearms training. Less open carry states. Less gun worship.

White Evangelicals Have a Pragmatic and Transactional Relationship with Amoral Donald Trump

“Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. is among the loudest public champions of President Trump, touting himself as the voice of the 81 percent of white evangelicals who voted for the president in 2016. Yet Falwell also says he’s never spoken to Trump about faith: ‘I’ve never talked to him about that in particular,’ he said in an interview with The Ringer.”

The Week

Evangelicals are so named because their main religious focus should be to evangelize, to share Jesus Christ with a lost and dying world, as they would put it.

But if you listen to the sermons of televangelists and read their publications you would get the impression that their main goals are to build quasi- Christian empires, attack gays and immigrants and promote the administration of Donald Trump.

White evangelicals have a pragmatic and transactional relationship with Trump, they don’t support him because he exemplifies the values of Jesus or because he shares their religious beliefs. They worship the short-fingered vulgarian because he doesn’t just give lip service to their pet causes, he’s kept his promise to appoint pro-life judges, declared war on immigrants and defend Israel right or wrong.

Jerry Falwell Jr, the president of Liberty University, acknowledged that he has never spoken to Trump about faith. It’s malpractice, or should I say heresy, for an evangelical leader not to try to lead an outwardly immoral and irreligious person to the Lord.

But of course, Falwell doesn’t care about Trump’s soul, he cares only that the stable genius shares his enmities, prejudices and policies. At least Falwell is more honest than his evangelical brethren who pretend that they support Trump because he’s a believer who’s been anointed by God to make America Great Again.

We shouldn’t think of white evangelicalism as a religious or spiritual movement that deserves our respect and admiration, but as a repressive conservative political group that merits our wrath and disgust.

Let’s deal a devastating blow to white evangelicals by voting to remove their False Messiah from office.  

Whiner-in-Chief Trump and Whiny White Evangelicals Perfect Match

Donald Trump is the President of the United States and the Leader of the Free World. He’s a billionaire with a beautiful trophy wife, who spends most of his free time golfing in his golf resorts. He has millions of supporters who think his farts smell like expensive cologne and his illiterate and toxic tweets are akin to scripture.

You’d think he would be a happy and content man with a smile and a kind word for everyone he meets, but you’d be wrong. Trump is the whiner-in-chief, he’s not happy unless he’s complaining about something or someone. Trump whines about every perceived insult and has a ready insult for anyone unfortunate enough to cross paths with him.

Trump is the perfect president for the very imperfect white evangelicals who are in a constant state of aggrievement. White evangelicals have convinced themselves that they’re a persecuted minority, never mind that they live in a democracy where Christianity might as well be the state religion.

Instead of enjoying living in a country where they are free to practice their religion, and Judeo-Christian values are cherished, evangelicals constantly whine and complain that godless liberals are trying to ban Christmas, Mexican immigrants are taking away their jobs, and gays are trying to convert their children.

Trump sees himself as the Messiah of the white evangelicals, he argues that an attack against him is an attack against them, and he seeks to keep them in a constant state of agitation. He knows that the more his base is upset the more likely they are to go to the polls and vote for him.

Enough is enough! Let’s give Trump and his evangelical followers something to whine about, by voting him out of office in 2020.

White Evangelicals and White Supremacists are an Existential Threat to Democracy and Christianity

You don’t have to be a theologian or a political scientist to know why white evangelicals worship Donald Trump. They are enamored with the short-fingered vulgarian because he supports their divisive agenda, especially their obsessive crusades against abortion, immigration, and the LGBT community.

Allow me to digress by pointing out that the Bible is silent on the subject of abortion, and that Jesus Christ never even mentioned homosexuality. And as for immigration, the Bible contains numerous passages that exhort God’s people to treat the poor, immigrants and refugees with hospitality and respect. White evangelicals should read Leviticus 19:33-34, Jeremiah 7:5-7, Zechariah 7: 9-10 and Ezekiel 47:22.

Trump isn’t a Republican, conservative or a religious person, let alone an evangelical, but early on he figured out that he could win the presidency by pretending to be a conservative Republican who was evangelical-friendly. Unlike other Republican presidents like George W. Bush who are real evangelicals, Trump didn’t just pay lip service to their pet causes, he’s used the awesome power of the presidency to wage holy war against immigrants, gays and lesbians and he’s flooded the federal courts with radical pro-life judges.

It’s not surprising that Nazis and white nationalists share the same prejudices as white evangelicals, and that Trump is very sympathetic to white evangelicals and alt-right racists. Trump and his enablers, white evangelicals and white supremacists are an existential threat to democracy and true Christianity, and it’s incumbent upon patriots to fight these enemies of truth and liberty tooth and nail. Let’s deal a death blow to these fascists by kicking Trump out of office

Trump’s ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS!’ Tweet Mean and Divisive Taunt

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Donald Trump tweet

Donald Trump didn’t take a holiday from Twitter on Christmas Day, his tweet on this holiday was typical in that it was all-caps and capped off with an exclamation point.

At first glance it appears that Trump kept things light and apolitical for the holiday season, but actually this brief tweet is a taunt. In Trump’s revisionist history President Barack Obama banned the phrase “Merry Christmas” and substituted the phrase “Happy Holidays” to be politically correct, and he the Great Protector of White Evangelicals resurrected the Merry Christmas greeting.

Trump’s MERRY CHRISTMAS! Tweet isn’t that of a president trying to spread goodwill and unity, it’s a taunt from a Grinch, saying “take that you godless liberals, you don’t belong in my Christian America.

Although I greet family, friends and strangers with a hearty “MERRY CHRISTMAS”, I also say “Happy Holidays”, it’s a more inclusive greeting that encompasses all religions and holidays, and there are a hell of a lot of religious holidays in December.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my readers!
