Published

on

President Donald Trump spoke to a group of right-wing Evangelical Christians after he assassinated a top Iranian general and while praying over him, one pastor said that Trump never claims to be perfect. It’s an odd claim because Trump frequently touts his own “genius” and other perfections.

“I thank you Lord that he doesn’t claim to be perfect,” the pastor said. “But he is passionate.”

The video shows Trump spent the prayer grinning at the audience and nodding without humbly bowing his head.

The most recent example is that Trump has been promoting his “perfect call with Ukraine” that ultimately led the impeachment investigation.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, inquires forwarded to Sen Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) asking who is handling all of her stock maneuverings since she was first informed about the growing coronavirus pandemic months ago are going unanswered as calls for her to be investigated grow.

The AJC, which broke the  story that the Georgia Republican dumped stocks right after she attended a closed-door briefing on the growing pandemic early on, is reporting that the embattled senator has "provided no proof that financial advisers making stock transactions on her behalf have total control over decision-making," as she has claimed.
