This should really scare the shit out of all of us. Don’t forget, current Energy Secretary Rick Perry, as Governor of Texas, actually issued a proclamation to pray for rain during a drought!

That our elected officials - ostensibly the best and brightest and most well informed among us - are as blinkered (and dumb) as Perry and Trump really is horrifying when you think about it.

Only horrifying in the context of today where we have the knowledge to know it’s bullshit but believe it anyways, but it’s has been the norm for 1000’s of years.

If Trump is really the Chosen of God, that would be a direct violation of the Separation of Church and State, and he would have to resign instantly.

LOL!

He also said “You know, Barack Obama doesn’t get to be the President of the United States without being ordained by God. Neither did Donald Trump”.

Oddly Obama gets a pass.

Is that because you folks believe he WAS the chosen ONE? In fact, many news sources on the left leaves out his reference to OBAMA as if that wasn’t news worthy.

The thing is this: there are millions of Evangelicals would agree that Trump was chosen by god. I don’t think there are many who would say the same about Obama.

I don’t know about the millions, but Perry himself is ecumenical on this point —https://www.marketwatch.com/story/trump-was-sent-by-god-to-be-president-says-rick-perry-and-so-was-obama-2019-11-25

I don’t see where “many news sources on the left” omitted his reference to Obama. CNN and USAToday, among others, are all reporting the Obama reference.

Was Perry saying Obama was the chosen one during Obama’s Presidency? Please show me where Perry publicly stated that Obama was the chosen one during Obama’s Presidency. I get the sense that Perry is only now (disingenuously) including Obama in order to justify claiming Trump as God’s chosen one. With Trump occupying center stage and Obama being old news, Perry’s reference to Obama really doesn’t land. 

Anyway, claiming that any President is “chosen by God” is batshit crazy. Furthermore, suggesting that two such politically diverse personalities as Trump and Obama could both be God’s chosen one is utterly ridiculous. Do you agree, Celal?

Perhaps every single thing that happens is predetermined.  Perhaps we are living in a simulation. Perhaps this is simulation training.

Or not.

Declaring Trump to be the Chosen of God is a risky game for Republicans:
If he and Pence get Raptured, Pelosi becomes President.
