Televangelist Rick Joyner, who heads the Christian publishing organization MorningStar, compared President-elect Donald Trump to Jesus’ disciples in his most recent Prophetic Perspectives on Current Events program, Right Wing Watch reports.

Joyner said he was in constant communication with Trump throughout his campaign and noted that Trump is “very different than what the media portrayed him as being.”

First of all, according to Joyner, Trump is one of the “kinder, gentler models from New York,” but he is also “tough as nails.” Joyner also alleged that Trump was in tears after they discussed kicking “all these illegal aliens out,” and how that will “bust up families.”

“I saw the tears well up in his eyes,” Joyner said. “He was about to bust out crying.” Trump repeatedly made mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, and building a border wall a central policy platform of his campaign.

Joyner also noted that Trump is “an honest man … one of the most honest people I’ve met.” However, Trump was notorious for consistently lying and backtracking over the course of his campaign.

Fact-checking website Politifact, who fact-checked at least 337 of Trump’s statements on the campaign trail and since his election victory, noted that 19 percent of his claims were “mostly false,” 34 percent were “false,” and 18 percent were “pants on fire.”

However, Joyner said that Trump possesses a serious respect for clergy, and a “remarkable fear of the Lord.”

But the most insightful message that Joyner had about Trump was in regards to Jesus’ disciples. Joyner said, “I think if you look at the disciples that Jesus chose, they were all Donald Trump. Every one of them were Donald Trumps.”

Published

Progressive activists are urging House Democrats to essentially kill two birds with one stone by impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr -- which would delay the confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

"Attorney General Barr has acted to subvert the laws that he, as our nation's chief federal law enforcement official, is duty-bound to uphold," more than 20 progressive groups signed in a joint letter.

"Attorney General Barr has made a career out of undermining our democracy and it is pellucidly clear that he has been ramping up efforts to undermine the upcoming elections and invalidate the votes of millions of Americans," the groups wrote.

"Cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect," Elliott continues, as the Star Spangled Banner plays quietly on a piano in the background.
