President Donald J. Trump, the very same man who has bragged about grabbing women by the genitals and commented that he was sexually attracted to daughter, Ivanka, became the first sitting president to ever speak at the annual Values Voters Summit. Miraculously, the building did not collapse from the weight of the hypocrisy.
The ballroom at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in northwest Washington was packed for Trump’s speech, and members of the audience often gave the head of state a standing ovation.
Trump began his remarks by proclaiming:
“We don’t worship government, we worship God. Our founders invoked our creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. And how times have changed. But you know what? Now they’re changing back again.”
And Thomas Jefferson had his own version of the Bible which omitted the miracles of Christ. Jefferson also wrote:
“But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”
Next, Trump told the raucous audience that Christian America could expect to make a big comeback under his leadership:
“We are stopping all our attacks on Judeo-Christian values. We don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct. You’ll go to department stores and they say ‘Happy New Year’ instead.”
One wonders if stores owned by Jews or Muslims will be required to comply with Trump’s “Merry Christmas” edict.
Incredibly, Trump also touched on the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico, saying:
“We’re gonna be there. It’s not a question of choice. We love those people. When America is unified, no force can break us apart. We love our families, we love our neighbors, we love our country.”
Translation: Trump is gonna send more paper towels and then declare the island has been rebuilt better than before.
The irony of Christian conservatives embracing a man as immoral and downright evil as Donald Trump proves that religion has little to no value in today’s upside-down world.
