Sarah Sanders will lie for Trump because she thinks she’s ‘defending God’s chosen leader’: Ex-Baptist pastor

Published

on

A lengthy New Yorker profile of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tries to answer why someone who is a devout Christian can justify repeatedly lying on behalf of President Donald Trump.

In part, the profile concludes that Sanders is willing to lie for the president because he has actually kept the promises he made to evangelical Christians, especially regarding the appointment of hard-line conservative judges.

The piece cites Washington Post religion reporter Michelle Boorstein, who says that evangelicals are happy to have a president who will do what they say — a stark contrast to past politicians who “have broken promises to Christian conservatives.”

It then quotes former Baptist pastor Brian Kaylor, a frequent critic of the president who believes most evangelicals see Trump’s 2016 election victory as a divine intervention that justifies excusing almost any kind of immoral behavior by the president.

“It’s more than you are defending a politician, or even a President,” he explained of Sanders’ mindset. “You are defending God’s chosen leader for this time.”

The president's top political aides are feeling better and better about their response to the coronavirus crisis, despite persistent delays in testing results and 1,000 deaths per day, reported Politico.

“COVID is the White House’s focus right now,” one senior White House official told the website. “Our data was showing it was beginning to subside in late May and early June. As the public started giving up on many of the mitigation practices, we had to adapt.”

Trump attacks ‘mad woman’ Kamala Harris, ‘crazy’ Pelosi and ‘not smart’ AOC

President Donald Trump kicked off Thursday morning racist and misogynistic attacks against powerful Democratic women. His targets: presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, and U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In an early morning interview with Fox News Business's Maria Bartiromo the president called U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) "condescending" and a "Mad Woman."

"Now you have sort of a Mad Woman," Trump said, "I call her, because she was so angry and such hatred with Justice Kavanaugh. I mean, I've never seen anything like it. She was the angriest of the group and they were all angry. They're all radical left angry people."
