Trump to Students: I’m President Because of God
Us to God: Get it together, bro!
Trump took a break today from his common Saturday morning golf routine to tell a group of college grads that “nothing is easier or more pathetic than being a critic” and that he won the election because it was God’s will.
For whatever reason Trump was asked to give a commencement speech at the only college that would have him–the super Christian evangelical Liberty University in Virginia. While campaigning Trump made a few stops at the school and he also took the opportunity praise the school’s founder, con-man and televangelist Jerry Falwell Sr., saying, “I used to love watching him on television.”
The most startling things he said in the speech, other than talking about the crowd size at his inauguration, had to do with God. In his speech he rambled off some things and then said he won the election because he got “major help from God.”

He then went on to talk about how America doesn’t worship government because here, we worship God!
“When the pilgrims led at Plymouth, they prayed,” Trump said. “When the founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times. Because in America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
Trump, clearly not being an expert on law, the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence, failed to mention that our founders wanted people to be able to practice the religion of their choosing or (gasp!), no religion at all.

The Christian rhetoric that’s been coming from the Trump regime in the past few days has been a little startling. Mike Pence the other day said in a speech, “I believe with all my heart that God created the heavens and the earth. The seas and all that is in them. How He did that, I’ll ask Him about some day.”
So if there’s a God and he is responsible for Trump, I’m definitely going to punch Him in the face when I see Him because we don’t deserve this buffoon.
