Bachmann Fanatically Insists God ‘Lifted’ Trump Up – For His Very Un-Christian Agenda (VIDEO)
Michele Bachmann Answers The Burning Question, ‘Why Donald?’
Michele Bachmann believes she has the answer to the question of the ages, one which our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren will ask: Why Trump?
Some people might see Donald Trump as the logical conclusion to a party that has spent nearly eight years whipping its base into a frenzy of anger, utilizing, with consummate skill, dog whistle racism and blatant obstructionism. Trump is the result of a party that has played upon the fears of the least educated within their base. That Trump happened after the GOP unabashedly stoked those flames, never realizing that, in the end, they would get burned.
But Michele Bachmann would disagree. The crazy-eyed former Representative from Minnesota believes Trump is a gift from God.
During an interview with The Brody File, Michele Bachman waxed poetic – if, by poetic, you understand that I mean “insane” – on the rise of real estate mogul, failed businessman, and former reality star Donald Trump.
“The most high God lifts up who He will and takes down who He will.”
Oh. That’s not really the direction most people would take, but please, proceed.
Trump Is A Gift Of God
“This is one thing I know from the Book of Daniel: the bottom line of the Book of Daniel is this: it teaches us that the most high God lifts up who He will and takes down who he will. And I look at this primary race that the Republicans had: 17 great candidates.
“I actually supported Ted Cruz. I thought he was fabulous but I also see that at the end of the day God raised up, I believe, Donald Trump who was going to be the nominee in this election. I don’t think God sits things out. He’s a sovereign God. Donald Trump became our nominee.”
Well, let’s go with that. Let’s say you honestly believe Jesus, a refugee who loved the poor, decided that Donald Trump should be the nominee. That the God who asked, “When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt,” really thinks the guy who’s immigration policy consists of building a wall is the one He wants to lift up.
Let’s Take A Look At What God Himself Says
It just doesn’t make sense.
“He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 10:18-19)
Where does refusing entry to Muslims, including helpless children and refugees, fit into that scripture?
Oh, and this is a good one.
“As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your name— for they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when they come and pray toward this temple, then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name.” (1 Kings 8:41-44)
How does Trump’s massive deportation force fit into that one?
Bachmann Hedges Her Bet
Here’s the answer. To all of them. Trump, and his policies, don’t fit into any of it.
Bachmann also stated that she believes Trump is the only candidate capable of winning the general election. So, if Bachmann believes that God will lift up the leader He wants, what will she say in November, when Hillary Clinton thoroughly trounces Trump at the voting booth? It’s hard to picture Michele Bachmann, or any of the religious right, saying, “Thy will be done!”
And chances are, they won’t.
There will be no revelation or epiphany for Bachmann, or any of the religious right. Bachmann herself already hedged her bets. After stating that she thinks Trump is a gift of God and the only nominee capable of winning the general election, she dismissed her own religious crazy.
“Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t know.”
And that’s probably the truest thing she has said in ages.
