Michele Bachmann: Trump longs for days when ‘even my Jews would say Merry Christmas’

Published

on

One of the weirdest stories of the 2016 presidential race has been evangelical Christians’ embrace of the thrice-married vulgarian Donald Trump as a savior figure.

Via Right Wing Watch, former GOP congresswoman Michele Bachmann made a pitch for Trump to evangelical voters during an interview with Christian broadcaster Jan Markell where she praised Trump for having “1950s sensibilities” and said he longed for the days when people of all religions said “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

“He gets and understands religious liberty,” Bachmann gushed about Trump while describing his recent meeting with evangelical leaders in New York. “He even said… ‘When I was growing up everybody said Merry Christmas. Even my Jews would say Merry Christmas.'”

It’s not exactly clear how getting “his Jews” to start saying “Merry Christmas” again would enhance religious liberty, but then again, the “religious liberty” agenda doesn’t really seem to be about religious liberty.

She also speculated that Trump may have been hand-picked by God to save the United States from Hillary Clinton, whom she claimed would “bring us into a certain destruction for the United States.”

“When it comes down to it, Trump may have been the only candidate who could actually defeat Hillary,” Bachmann said. “What I kept thinking to, Jan, was the Book of Daniel, and the Book of the Daniel, the essence of the book, was that the most high God lifts up who he will and takes down who he will.”

Let’s give Bachmann some credit here: If God really is angry at the United States for legalizing gay marriage, then making Donald Trump our president is a remarkably effective punishment.

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
