You’ve already heard it, I know, but for those living under a stone, Sarah Huckabee Sanders (not good ole Bernie, as I first thought from the headline!) is an eejit. And, if she can be believed, so is God:
In an interview on Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes that God wanted Donald Trump to be president.
Talking with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Sanders offered her thoughts on a wide array of topics, including immigration, a border wall, the White House press briefings and how real estate mogul Donald Trump ended up at the White House.
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that He wanted Donald Trump to become president,” Sanders said, according to CBN News. “That’s why he’s there and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.
“Much of Sanders’ 20-minute interview with the media organization revolved around the intersection of faith and politics, including how Christians in Syria will be affected by pulling troops out of the country, abortion and whether a wall along the southern border, Trump’s key campaign promise that led to a 35-day government shutdown, is moral.
Sanders argued that Trump is the “most conservative president that we’ve ever had,” pointing to how the administration has reshaped the judicial system with a wide assortment of conservative judges.
“I think that will be one of the greatest legacies that the president has after his 8 years in office is how he has completely remade the judiciary and started to stop this activist court that we’ve started to see over the last 8 years,” Sander said. “There’s a reason evangelicals are sticking with the President, and that’s because he’s delivered on all the things he said he would do.”
Of course, if you believe in OmniGod, then every disaster that ever takes place, from earthquakes to malaria, AIDs to tsunamis, pestilence to Trump: they are all the will of God, in some manner of speaking.
