‘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.”

Published

Dozens of people will undertake a "funeral march" up a steep Swiss mountainside on Sunday to mark the disappearance of an Alpine glacier amid growing global alarm over climate change.

The Pizol "has lost so much substance that from a scientific perspective it is no longer a glacier," Alessandra Degiacomi, of the Swiss Association for Climate Protection, told AFP.

The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Published

on

Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.

A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
