Holy crap! That bitch is terrifying!

President Donald Trump has added Florida televangelist Paula White to his administration. She will be an adviser to the president’s Faith and Opportunity Initiative in the White House’s Office of Public Liaison.
The New York Times calls the 53-year-old White “a quintessentially Trump figure: a television preacher, married three times, who lives in a mansion [and believes] that God wants followers to find wealth and health — commonly called the prosperity gospel.”
Her beliefs have made her controversial even in religious circles. The Rev. William J. Barber II, a protestant minister who is also president of the NAACP’s North Carolina state chapter, called her message “a false gospel.”
“It is an attempt,” he said, “to interpret the gospel to be primarily about personal wealth and personal power, which is contrary to the theology of Jesus where the good news was always focused on caring for the poor, the least of these, the stranger, the sick.”
Richard W. Painter, a University of Minnesota law professor who served as White House ethics counsel during the George W. Bush administration, was harsher. He took to Twitter over the weekend to warn that she is “the face of fascism.”
It makes sense if you think about it.
I mean why wouldn’t a batshit crazy fake billionaire hire a batshit crazy fake evangelical to become part of his batshit crazy fake presidency?
I would really like to laugh this off, but all I can think about is that this might be the last person to give Trump advice as he reaches for the nuclear football.
Yeah, good luck getting any sleep tonight.
