Trump hands his controversial personal pastor — a ‘prosperity gospel’ televangelist — an official White House job

President Donald Trump has handed his personal pastor, the controversial prosperity gospel televangelist Paula White-Cain,  an official White House job.

Paula White, as she is also known, will be based in the Office of Public Liaison, which focuses on gaining support from various special interest groups that are a critical part of the President’s base.

White’s “role will be to advise the administration’s Faith and Opportunity Initiative, which Mr. Trump established last year by executive order and which aims to give religious groups more of a voice in government programs devoted to issues like defending religious liberty and fighting poverty,” The New York Times reports.

Although she will be a White House and not a campaign employee, the Times notes the president winning a second term is dependent on religious conservatives, and without their support “his path to re-election would be significantly narrower.”

White, who says she regularly visits the White House several times a week, attended a “laying of hands” on the president prayer event in the Roosevelt Room of White House earlier this week. Other attendees included Trump’s top religious advisors. Among them, Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council, and Dr. James Dobson, founder of the FRC and of Focus on the Family, an anti-LGBT organization.

“White has spent the past few years saying some states believe the Bible is ‘hate speech,’ that she had blessed the White House with ‘the superior blood of Jesus,’ that church members should vote Republican, and that opposing the president means opposing God,” Friendly Atheist advises.

Here’s one of White’s recent tweets:

"The View" co-hosts are furious that President Donald Trump is still refusing to stand down after losing the 2020 election. To make matters worse, Republican communications consultant Ana Navarro blames Republicans for allowing the madness to persist for so long that it's now starting to put the United States in a compromised situation.

"Look, I don't know what it's going to take because really it should have happened weeks ago," said Navarro. "States are beginning to certify their results. Electors vote in a couple of weeks, but you know, Whoopi, I keep talking about history and how history is going to judge this. There are going to be books written about this. It's going to be studied by school kids in 30 years and 40 years."

Federal appeals court grants Trump campaign ‘expedited’ hearing after Giuliani bungles case in Pennsylvania

Published

on

The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has granted the Trump campaign's motion for an expedited hearing in a case that is being handled by attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Last week, federal Judge Matthew Brann tossed out a case in which Giuliani had asked for 680,000 ballots to be invalidated in Pennsylvania. But Giuliani's team had removed legal claims about the demand from its motion to the court.

In his ruling, Brann said that Giuliani could not file an amended complaint in his court. The Trump campaign responded by filing an amended motion for expedited review with the Third Circuit of appeals.
