Even in the pantheon of crazy stuff that people try to believe in order to justify their actions and who they support politically, this may just be the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard.
According to Bloomberg:
“At one recent meeting with Trump, evangelical leaders noted how he often flashes a signature hand gesture, with a thumb out and a finger point to the sky, as he enters and exits rallies.”
Yeah, that’s the Donald trying to remind everyone that he’s the most important person in the world, the #1, numero uno alpha male in the room, and don’t you forget it.
But televangelist Pastor Mark Burns–who supports Trump wholeheartedly– thinks the gesture means much more:
“You see athletes do it all the time and it’s their chance to point to the sky, to thank God for their success. Trump does this all of the time, too. He’s giving reverence to the man upstairs. Even with Mr. Trump’s billions of dollars, he too still submits himself to God.”
Uh, really, Pastor Burns? That’s what you think? Have you been hitting the Communion wine again, Pastor Burns? Or did you just drop some really good LSD? Because that might be the biggest reach I have ever heard when it comes to pretending a congenital liar and serial philanderer who thinks women are nothing more than objects is actually religious or would submit himself to any deity other than the Almighty Dollar, which is Donald Trump’s only god.
I guess these people need to convince themselves that their vote is a godly one. If so, then they have certainly managed an amazing feat: Turning one of the most loathsome human beings on the face of the planet into a one of the redeemed.
Here’s more on Trump’s favorite hand gestures. No doubt these mean he’s actually read the Bible:
