A Tea Party lawmaker from Virginia attacked President Barack Obama for citing the Bible to criticize Republicans — who he argued owned Christianity.

Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) appeared Monday on the American Family Radio program hosted by Sandy Rios, where he complained about the president citing Christian teachings to hammer GOP elected officials and candidates who tried to block the settlement of Syrian refugees in the U.S., reported Right Wing Watch.

“He’s using the Christian tradition and trying to bring about compassion by bonking Republicans over the head with the Bible,” Brat said. “It’s almost a comedy routine on what compassion and love is. He’s mocking his enemies in order to compel a larger federal state using the tradition of love.”

The lawmaker said some liberal college professors were debating whether objective truth existed, which he said disqualified Democrats from claiming any part of biblical teachings.

“Our side, the conservative side, needs to reeducate its people that we own the entire tradition,” Brat said. “If you lose the moral argument, you lose the policy argument every time, so we need to reclaim the moral argument, where we’re so strong.”

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

on

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
