Almost as if he were acting out billboard messages that suggested he was God incarnate, Donald Trump revealed his compassionate Christian nature at a pre-election Missouri rally.
His “Jesus” moment came courtesy of a woman who fainted at the Cape Girardeau event.
Trump stepped away from his microphone and remained silent.
After a voice from the crowd recommended praying for the woman, Trump said:
That’s right, say a little prayer.
Many of those in attendance at the rally could be seen raising their hands in collective prayer then begun singing “Amazing Grace”.
After emergency responders lifted the woman from the ground on a stretcher and removed her from the rally, Trump said:.
Power is really something. I wanted to just thank everybody for the way you behaved. That was beautiful. At the end was beautiful. ‘Amazing Grace.’ That was beautiful. Hopefully she’ll be OK.
And how the crowd loved his response.
One supporter later tweeted:
These are the beautiful Trump supporters media labels ‘Racist’! Listen to my fellow Trump supporters sing Amazing Grace as a supporter is tended to after collapsing at Missouri rally I am so proud to cast my vote on #ElectionDay for Conservatives who love God, America & Trump.
Very special moment. Donald Trump stopped in the middle of his Rally, to allow medics to assist someone in need of medical attention. As the person received attention, the crowd sang Amazing Grace. Moments like these restore our faith in humanity.
And she wrote:
Basically, this billboard is saying Donald Trump is Jesus. And if that’s not bad enough, it suggests we should ‘Make the Gospel great again’.
We are fortunate that Christians are instructed to take even the nastiest insults by turning the other cheek, because this one is wildly offensive — and not just because Jesus would have never consorted with spray tanner or gold toilet seats or incendiary rhetoric about refugees. (Quite the contrary; please see Matthew 25: 31-46.)
That said, we couldn’t let the matter rest without setting the record straight. So, for those who are confused, a brief list of things that are definitely not Jesus:
1. Donald Trump
2. Rich people.
3. People who spurn the orphan, the widow and stranger.
4. Donald Fucking Trump.
The Friendly Atheist revealed that the outfit responsible for the billboards (since removed) is called Make the Gospel Great Again. Its mission statement says:
MGGA exists to help spread the truth of God’s great champion on earth — President Donald Trump. The Lord anointed Mr. Trump to bless America, and we live out our faith by following him. Donald Trump has already won many victories for Jesus by stopping abortions, telling the truth, proving that the real racists are not white, and fighting against the liberal media and their War on Christians!
