Morning Joe rips evangelical hypocrites: ‘Donald Trump is the antithesis of everything Jesus Christ said’

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough ripped congressional Republicans and conservative Christians for allowing themselves to be used by President Donald Trump.

The “Morning Joe” host questioned why Senate Majority Leader and House Speaker Paul Ryan continued to humiliate themselves by appearing alongside the president, who repeatedly attacked and undermined them.

“For some reason, for all of their collective wisdom, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have never understood that they are a separate and equal part of the legislative branch,” Scarborough said.

Conservative commentator Bill Kristol said there was a simple explanation for their acquiescence.

“They want to get tax cuts,” Kristol said. “Tax cuts is a huge, shiny bubble that justifies humiliating yourself.”

MSNBC political analyst Mike Barnicle said the Trump presidency and current GOP majorities were built on “duplicity and fraudulence,” and Scarborough said the conservative movement no longer stood for anything.

“It is a joke, and people will look back and wonder, ‘What the hell happened, what fever gripped the conservative, what fever gripped the Republican Party, what fever gripped my own people — the people I grew up with, the people who helped me get elected — the evangelicals that go to Value Voter Summits, or whatever they call it, and give Steve Bannon a standing ovation, welcome Donald Trump as a conquering hero?'” Scarborough said.

He contrasted the president’s words and deeds with the most essential biblical teachings purportedly followed by conservative Christians who cheered Trump at the Values Voter Summit.

“You look in Matthew and go through the Beatitudes, every single Beatitude, you go through Jesus’ teaching, what he says he wants people to be,” Scarborough said. “Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it. None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way, it seems, to thumb his nose at all conventions, including the basics of the Beatitudes.”

Historians demolish John Yoo for claim Founding Fathers wouldn’t want Trump impeached in an election year

Published

Comments made by attorney and law professor John Yoo on Fox News on the Founding Father's intentions about impeachment received a brutal debunking by two historians -- including one of his colleagues at UC Berkeley.

Appearing with Fox News personality Laura Ingraham, lawyer Yoo -- who is infamous for providing President George W. Bush's administration with legal justifications for the torture of prisoners of war -- claimed that the Founding Fathers would object to the president being impeached in an election year.

According to Yoo, Democrats are getting it all wrong when they say the Constitution compels them to hold impeachment proceedings against Trump just one year before the election.

Pelosi asks America to pray for Trump’s health after president suffers a ‘very serious meltdown’

Published

on

President Donald Trump's Twitter attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following an acrimonious White House meeting appears to have backfired spectacularly.

Trump tweeted a picture of the encounter Wednesday showing a standing Pelosi pointing at the president while he and everyone else in the room was seated, with the caption "Nervous Nancy's unhinged meltdown!"

However, far from being upset at the picture, Pelosi posted it as her Twitter banner, and her supporters said it showed her literally standing up to Trump.

"Can a woman beat Donald Trump? Yes. Speaker Pelosi does it every day," Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar said as she retweeted the picture.
