Conservative former congresswoman Michele Bachmann has, unsurprisingly, become a cheerleader for Donald Trump over the past couple of years. Unlike other Republicans who just ignore his lies and bigotry, Bachmann goes out of her way to pretend he’s God’s Gift to Humanity.
Earlier this year, she called him the most “biblical president” she’s ever seen. (If she was referring to the classic line from Richard Dawkins, maybe she had a point… but she wasn’t.)
Now she’s doing it again.
“He is, without a doubt, the most biblical president I have ever seen. I’m going to repeat that: he is the most biblical president I have ever seen in what he does. His actions are remarkable and I would ask the audience to please pray for him continually.”
“We have never seen a president under more attack, more undeserved attack, but I think it’s because, again, of the day that we live in, the deception that we live in, and the demonic presence of so many evil things in our society… He has some of the most godly people surrounding him that I have ever seen, so he is deserving of that level of prayer and support and we need to provide that for him.”
Keep in mind this occurred the same week he was attacking Democratic women of color in Congress because… well, they’re women of color in Congress.
And the only thing “godly” about those people surrounding him in the White House is that they’re nowhere to be found.
Bachmann was never considered thoughtful, but this level of delusion reinforces every bit of criticism people ever had about her — and Republicans in general. These people will gleefully link this administration with their religion thinking it’ll dupe white evangelicals into supporting him, not realizing that, hopefully soon, both groups will suffer because of their alliance.
So at least she’s helping that process along.
If Trump is godly, it’s the best advertisement for atheism I’ve ever heard.
