Donald Trump addressed Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Conference this weekend and he appears to have found a new favorite Bible verse. His every word and action contradicts that verse, unsurprisingly, but he quoted it anyway.
Your voices will resound across the halls of our Capitol, and across the world. We recite today the words of Isaiah Chapter 1, Verse 17: “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”
The entrenched interests and failed, bitter voices in Washington will do everything in their power to try and stop us from this righteous cause, to try to stop all of you. They will lie. They will obstruct. They will spread their hatred and their prejudice. But we will not back down from doing what is right. Because, as the Bible tell us — (applause) — we know that the truth will prevail, that God’s glorious wisdom will shine through, and that the good and decent people of this country will get the change they voted for and that they so richly deserve. (Applause.) ….
The lack of self-awareness and the dishonesty is just mind-blowing, isn’t it?
