Like What Reid Says

Politico reports

“Is there anything that I think that President Trump is doing right? I just have trouble accepting him as a person, and so frankly I don't see anything he's doing right,” Reid told CNN’s Dana Bash.

President Trump responded
Of course Trump did, because on March 26, 2016

“I’ve had time to ponder and to think. We’ve got to be more concerned about the country, the Senate, the state of Nevada than us,” Reid said. “And as a result of that, I’m not going to run for reelection.”

Reid's current message- "I don't see anything he's doing right"- is peculiarly evocative of Donald J. Trump.  Far-right Christian activist Joshua Feuerstein last autumn told Al-Jazeera

God always used people that had a past. You look at David. He had multiple affairs. Yet, the Bible says he was a man after God's own heart.

While I know that Trump's past has had moral failure after moral failure, I have no doubt that he is standing on a God-centered, Biblical agenda.

In yet another example of a self-centered, non-Biblical agenda, President Trump in January pimped for his wall by dumping on thetwo-thirds of illegal immigrants who show up for court when scheduled:

They go into our country, and then you announce — these are the laws — then you say, ‘come back in three years for your trial, Tell me what percentage of people come back. Would you say 100 percent? No you’re a little off. How about 2 percent. And those people you almost don’t want ‘cause they cannot be very smart.

We're accustomed to Trump lying whenever he opens his mouth or sends something out on Twitter. But it takes a special kind of guy who would celebrate people who a court's order and ridicule people who follow the rules and show up when ordered by a Judge. It takes the same kind of a guy who would lie about Harry Reid in the same message he accuses the former Senate leader of "lies and deception." It takes a Donald J. Trump.
