‘Trump isn’t a vessel for God’s will’: Bill Maher destroys Evangelicals for absurd faith in president

Published

on

HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher went in-depth on Friday to explain how President Donald Trump is not, in fact, King Cyrus from the Bible.

“And finally, new rule, stop acting so surprised that Trump thinks he’s God’s gift to America, because that’s what Evangelicals keep telling him he is,” Maher noted.

Maher noted a speech by My Pillow founder Mike Lindell at the CPAC conference, which Maher described as “a virtual Woodstock of the mentally impaired.”

“Donald Trump invited me to the meet him at Trump Tower in New York City,” Lindell said in his speech.. “I walked into his office with high hopes on August 15th, 2016. I walked out of that office after meeting with him and I knew God had chosen him for such a time as this.”

“Mike’s pillows are made from foam, but his head is filled with feathers,” Maher joked. “But Mike’s belief there is not unique, a significant portion of our population believes that in 2016, God put Trump in office. And I was giving all the credit to [Vladimir] Putin.”

Maher noted how Evangelicals are claiming Trump is like King Cyrus in the Bible.

“Why Cyrus? Because Evangelicals had to solve this little problem they have, which is that they want to support a Republican president, but this particular happens to be the least-Christian one ever,” he noted.

“A man who loves flesh-peddling, coveting, cursing, cheating, bullying, bragging, sloth, adultery and ripping off charities,” he continued. “And who lies more frequently than the rest of us pee.”

“The type of man who would go into a confessional booth — and never come out,” he noted. “So how to square that circle? Just say Trump is like King Cyrus.”

‘Dangerous linguistic power’: A historian explains how Trump weaponizes nicknames

Published

on

Is Donald Trump the modern day Earl Long?

A three-time Louisiana governor, Long mastered the art of political ridicule seven decades ago by weaponizing nicknames. The hilarious names Long pinned on his rivals, and the rollicking stories he told about them, riveted audiences bored by puffed-up rhetoric.

While Long’s stunts may be remembered as silly hijinks, there was a sly, often deadly serious, purpose to his technique. He used it to get voters to laugh at his foes and to put them on the defensive––a place politicians never want to be. Tucked within Long’s jests were razor-sharp attacks aimed at exploiting opposition weaknesses––hidden swords inside a pea-patch cloak.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
