Fake “journalist” David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network did an interview with Donald Trump, in which Trump declared himself to the champion of Christians everywhere. And along the way, he repeated the same ridiculous lie he told at the Iowa National Security Action Summit (without challenge from Brody, of course).
David Brody: Conservative Christians are concerned about the deterioration of this culture. They are concerned about the marriage issue. What is your message to them on religious liberty and on religious freedom? What are your thoughts about that? What is your message to them specifically?
Donald Trump: Well, it’s a very big message. As you know, I am Protestant. I am Presbyterian. Most people don’t know that. They have no idea. I’m proud of it. I’m very proud of it.
One of the things I learned this weekend being in Iowa, I met with a lot of national security experts and everything else, that if you’re a Christian living in Syria you can’t come into this country. Yet, if you are a Muslim living in Syria, who are not under attack, they can come in.
But we have Christians being beheaded all over the world by ISIS. In Syria and in Iraq, in particular, those Christians can’t come into this country.
You say what you want but this is really something. That’s a lack of respect for us. If you’re a Muslim, you can come into the country very easy. If you’re from Europe and you’re a Muslim, you can come in. But if you are from Europe and you’re a Christian you can’t come in…meaning it’s almost impossible.
Except that’s all total bullshit. There is nothing preventing Christians from Syria or Iraq from getting refugee status in the United States, any more than any other group. We don’t grant asylum to nearly enough refugees, but it has nothing to do with whether they’re Muslim or Christian. He didn’t “learn” that in Iowa, he swallowed a lie and continues to repeat it.
The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians. Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.
Well there you go, Christians. You’ve been waiting for your savior to return and he’s right there. Who would have guessed Jesus would come back as a thrice-married buffoon who trades his wives in for younger models every 10-15 years and has the worst combover in the known universe?
