White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that God “wanted Donald Trump to become president.”
Sanders spoke with David Brody and Jennifer Wishon of the Christian Broadcasting Network. Brody during the interview asked the press secretary for a “spiritual perspective” on Trump’s presidency.
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president,” Sanders said. “And that’s why he’s there, and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
People are always suggesting that we need to respect each other’s beliefs, but shit like this makes that almost impossible.
Not that many years ago the conservative Christians were condemning Bill Clinton to eternal damnation for getting his penis sucked by an intern, and claiming that he was too immoral to run the country.
But now we have a thrice-divorced serial cheater, who had well-publicized affairs with porn stars and Playboy models while married, and never ever attends church, suddenly proclaimed to be the chosen of God to lead this nation simply because he puts judges on the bench who do not respect a woman’s right to choose.
It is enough to put you off religion entirely.
