Donald Trump, who is probably the least religious president we’ve had in a very long time, spoke at the annual National Prayer Breakfast and showed some seriously breathtaking hypocrisy. I especially love his ridiculously self-serving rhetoric about the “sanctity of life.”
In his State of the Union address Tuesday, Trump asked Congress to pass a law prohibiting late-term abortions.
“We must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” Trump said Thursday. “All children born and unborn are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred and every soul is a previous gift from heaven.”
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go steal a few thousand more children from their parents while I deny them their legal right to apply for political asylum and send them back to horrible violence and persecution. Because, you know, “every life is sacred.” Unless they’ve got brown skin, of course. Or are gay or trans. Or Muslim. Okay, so every life that I favor is sacred. The rest can die in the name of God.
