Donald Trump angrily responded to Pope Francis' criticism by suggesting he'd be sorry for speaking out against him if Islamic State militants attacked the Vatican City.
The pope said Trump's divisive rhetoric and proposal to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border were "not Christian" -- and some fans of the Republican frontrunner accused the pontiff of hypocrisy.
Amazing comments from the Pope- considering Vatican City is 100% surrounded by massive walls. https://t.co/g3iVLDVGe5— Dan Scavino🇺🇸🦅 (@Dan Scavino🇺🇸🦅)1455815863.0

Not even God Himself was safe from the angry Trump fans.
Others defended Trump by suggesting that words have no meaning and it's all just bullshit anyway.
Many Trump fans simply hurled angry words at the pope for daring to criticize their preferred presidential candidate.
@FoxNews I thought the pope was "supposed" to be sinless...isn't he making judgment on Trump? He's prob a Muslim in disguise like Obama.— Ryan Edmonds (@Ryan Edmonds)1455820122.0
Some Trump fans pounded angrily on their keyboards, hit send and stood back to admire what they'd done.
