Disgraced former Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt veered into domestic policy commentary on his online show on Wednesday, arguing against the National Security Authority’s (NSA) domestic spying program while trying to pray a demon out of President Barack Obama.
“We pray against the domestic enemies of the Constitution,” Klingenschmitt said, his eyes closed. “Against this demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant. That demonic spirit is oppressing us.”
Klingenschmitt also prayed that God would help Obama repent for violating citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights.
“Really it’s got its roots in a satanic, evil spirit of violation of tyranny, ultimately,” Klingenschmitt said of the NSA’s activities.

"What a clown," Scarborough said. "That actually is the Republican speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly in full-on protective gear. This guy who looks like he's in a hazmat suit telling Wisconsin voters that they were, quote, 'incredibly safe' to go out."
Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health

"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
