If You're a Christian and Voted Trump You Voted Against Everything You Believe In

Reporter: President Trump, what do you think of this person in the news lately, Jesus Christ?

Trump: Total loser.

Reporter: But he has a huge following…

Trump: Of socialist who want everything free and want to radicalize this country. He surrounds himself with losers. Look, he started with twelve unemployed losers…

Reporter: Actually they were fishermen…

Trump: Not very good ones. Look, my crowds are much larger than his. . I have the biggest rallies in the history of the world. Bigger than Nuremberg. My crowds don’t come looking for hand-outs. Look, I have the bestest britiest people. Who does he got? Losers, slackers, anarchist, sick people, criminals. What’s he offering? Look, I’m putting people back to work. Work will set you free. People are going to have great pride in America. I’m making America great. People say there is a problem with greed, but I’m making people rich and they are making more work for everyone. The stock market is doing better than anytime in the history of the world. People who disagree with that are un-American and traitors and will feel the full wrath of my people, our people, well my people. We are going to be the envy of the world.

Reporter: Aren’t those some of the Bible’s seven deadly sins?

Trump: That’s an ugly question. You’re an ugly person, and that’s an ugly question, but I’ll answer it anyway because I’m above that. But you’re an ugly person and that’s an ugly question. But the answer, not in my Bible. I’ve read my Bible and it’s not in there. Total fake news.

This president has lied non-stop, literally every day since his inauguration (remember, biggest crowd in history).He has even lied about lying. America is apparently okay with this. In fact, I’ve learned that pursuing my degree is a waste of my time and money. Either I’m already smarter than at least 49% of this nation, or everything they have taught me in the business college is wrong. Or both.

I devoted twenty-six years of my life, my health, in defense of this nation, only to watch one man’s reality show tear it down in less than four. What the Soviet Union couldn’t do in seventy years of Cold War, Trump has accomplished in less than three. He has achieved almost all the stated goals former Russian KGB officer Anatoliy Golitsyn outlined in his book New Lies For Old. We are now a nation divided against itself. The Trump administration has alienated our NATO allies and fractured the alliance. He openly embraces China, Russia, and North Korea. We’ve surrendered in the Middle East and Afghanistan turning it back over to the Taliban and to Russian back governments like Syria and Iran. We turned our back (again) on Arabs who supported us ensuring that we will never, ever be trusted by anyone in the region again. It would take several centuries of consistent policy in the region to convince any Arab state the US would honor its word.

That is another problem. We can not be trusted to keep our promises. This undermines a central tenet and requirement to forge international treaties, cooperation, and trust. Trust is the foundation for any cooperative effort and US foreign policy is now if it’s not beneficial for Trump then America can’t be counted on.
