“I’ve gotta be the cleanest sheriff. I think I’m the most honest human being, perhaps, that God ever created, perhaps.”
Twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, uttered this whopper at Saturday’s MAGA rally in Pennsylvania.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Trump’s statement reeks to high heaven of deceit and the arrogance of a scam artist confident that his marks will believe anything he says. Indeed, his followers consider every untruth that emanates from his sphincter-shaped mouth the Gospel truth.
This is the same master dissembler who has been caught lying about everything under the sun, ranging from the size of his crowd at his 2017 inauguration to the size of his mushroom-shaped pecker to the mother of all lies, that the 2020 presidential election was rigged and stolen.
According to the Washington Post Trump uttered more than 30,000 lies while in office, and since he left office, he has continued to tell lies at a frenetic pace, but fortunately his platform for spreading his deceptions has greatly diminished.
Trump is a sociopath, an amoral monster who has confessed that he doesn’t feel a need to ask the Almighty for forgiveness, probably because is doesn’t believe in God. But that doesn’t stop him from invoking the name of God, he’s acutely aware that sprinkling his speeches with a few mentions of Jesus gives his outrageous fabrications moral authority.
Evangelicals may worship their Orange Messiah as a deity, but in reality, he is more like the devil of the Bible. His followers feed on his lies, and that prompts him to tell even more lies, and when all is said and done, he may take the title, “The father of lies” from Satan.
