A group of Trump-loving preachers were so dismayed to hear criticism of the president from some of their fellow evangelical Christians that they reportedly walked out of a closed-door meeting at Wheaton College this week.
Christian broadcaster David Brody told Fox News on Thursday that many of the pro-Trump evangelicals felt ambushed at the meeting by attendees who said they were fed up being associated with Trump’s divisive brand of politics.
“It was one-sided venting here is what happened,” he said. “It was a two-day conference, the first side became, basically, this anti-Donald Trump free-for-all that and got so many folks ticked off… people walked out.”
“It was supposed to be a meeting about evangelism and faith,” Christian broadcaster Jenna Browder told Fox. “They really didn’t realize what they were getting into.”
Later in the segment, Brody suggested that these particular evangelical leaders might simply be jealous because they don’t get the kind of access to the White House that prominent Trump supporters get.
“This is a meeting with a bunch of evangelicals who really have no say within the Trump administration,” he said. “The fact that you had no Trump advisory group members there, I mean, I think that speaks volumes.”
Melania Trump ripped for bragging about helping children while her husband runs concentration camps for kids
Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.
"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.
The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.
Border Patrol blocking Americans from donating toothbrushes and diapers for detained children
On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.
About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.
But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.
Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon
When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.
And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.
