President Donald Trump’s favorite pastor believes that she is such a powerful figure that wherever she stands should be sanctioned as holy ground.
During a recent appearance in Tampa, Florida, Pastor Paula White told a church crowd that she is officially proclaiming the White House “holy ground,” not because of her favorite politician, but because of her. According to RightWingWatch, White thinks wherever she goes is holy.
“The church is Christ’s body in which he speaks and acts and by which he fills everything, including the White House, including government halls,” White told the crowd.
“How does he do that?” she asked. “He does that through you. He does that through me. Wherever I go, God rules. When I walk on White House grounds, God walks on White House grounds. When I walked in The River, God walked in The River. When I go in the dry cleaners, that dry cleaning place becomes holy. I have every right and authority to declare the White House as holy ground because I was standing there and where I stand is holy.”

GOP ripped for refusing to remove Trump from office: ‘Folly of that failure becomes clearer by the day’
Republicans seeking to keep control of the United States Senate were harshly criticized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for failing to remove President Donald Trump from office during impeachment.
"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"
Fox News commentator slammed for mocking Joe Biden’s decision to wear a mask
On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.
But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
