He’s getting desperate

Trump just forwarded a prayer to his followers on Trump Social. I think he’s broken and desperate.

I think that if there were a god, such a being would see right through Trump’s chicanery and know that he’s far more creepily secular than his opponents, and would immediately strike dead with a lightning bolt any MAGAt who had the affrontery to make that prayer.

Are those red hat fools still milling around out there? There is no god. QED.

    Thor, Frigga, Isis, Gaia, Sophia, Bast, and Athena don’t find that prayer worthy.
    In fact they think it is rather dumb and directed to the wrong gods.

    Satan is the only one that might be at all interested in Trump and Magats.

    Hmmm, hold on here.
    Naw, satan says he has standards and they might be low but Trump and his followers are still below them.
    Try the Frost Giants instead.

    Trump desparate is nice. Trump in jail would be better. Trump barred for ever from holding elected office; now we’re talking.

  3. Pierce R. Butler says

    What the hell kind of a god needs prayers to urge him to “bring about” his own Plan?

  4. PaulBC says

    Trump was anointed? The only public figure I remember being anointed with oil was John Ashcroft.

  5. PaulBC says

    Pierce R. Butler@4 It’s like applause. Everyone likes to be appreciated. Otherwise God gets sulky and starts smiting stuff.

    Who ever ‘conjured up’ that prayer is seriously delusional. George Carlin had it right, he started worshiping the sun, got much better results than worshiping what I call a “human fever-dream fantasy construct”. It made him happier than that xtian terrorist crap. I don’t have boots that go up high enough to allow me to wade into that xtian terrorist crap.
    Yes, tRUMP and the xtian terrorists are desperate. But, that makes their propensity for hatred and violence even more dangerous.
    Years ago I saw a fun bumper sticker:
    cheerleader for the Egyptian gods:
    Isis, Isis, Ra, Ra, Ra!

    “Your Anointed President, Donald Trump”

    What the Fuck!! Do we really need anymore evidence that Trumpers are part of a cult.

    Trump better watch out. Jehovah doesn’t like arrogance. Here’s what the writer of Acts 12 says about how Herod II Agrippa died because of his arrogance:

    On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people. They shouted, “This is the voice of a god, not of a man.” Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.

    #4 Prayers aren’t for God/god/gods they are for the people that say them and for those within in earshot.

  10. whheydt says

    “Annointed”, huh? That means he’s covered in oil. Won’t somebody near him please light a match?

  11. says

    Wait, all they have to do is stay home and pray on election day and pray and Trump gets re-elected? Sounds like a plane to me. Wink Wink.

  12. brightmoon says

    Smh 🤦🏾‍♀️. I really don’t understand anyone who’s BIPOC and wants Dolt45 back. Why !?!?! birger and whheydt made me guffaw 🤣 with their comments. Thanks for the uplift of my mood . I was a little worried about my elderly aunt in Orlando

  13. Tethys says

    He still refers to himself as the sitting president, which is even more delusional than gods that require prayers, or any anointing. Everyone who gets baptized in a Catholic Church has also been anointed.

    Within Christian doctrine, the only anointed one is Jesus, and the drivel that issues from tfg and his MAGAts constitutes blasphemy. Too bad that their God doesn’t spend much time zotting blasphemous liars anymore. It would certainly make watching anything from faux news highly dramatic.

  14. says

    Maybe he’s been watching reruns of the first couple seasons of Buffy and got confused.

    Or maybe it’s just that there is no benevolent supernatural being… because if there was, he’d go Old Testament on that entire family to show his/her/their benevolence toward everyone else.

    Or — most likely of all — this is just another expression of sociopathic narcissism that won’t be seen by the person expressing it as anything other than his rightful due (which is sort of the epitome of sociopathic narcissism, isn’t it?).

  15. robro says

    The end of the message was cut off. I assume there’s was a plea to send money.

    Tethys @ #17 — Trump wasn’t anointed Catholic. He was originally baptized Presbyterian when he was 13, but his father switched to the Marble Collegiate Church, a Reformed Church in America, where Norman Vincent Peale was the minister. I’ve read that Peale’s “positive thinking” shtick had a big influence on Trump. It’s part of why he won’t accept or admit defeat.

    Jaws @ #18 — Or he’s just trolling his true believers to raise more money from them…which is very likely an expression of his sociopathic narcissism.

    A hundred years from now, a whole raft of history PhD theses are going to be written about this time and its people. I predict that the authors of every one of them are going to conclude that they can formulate no reason why this outright fraud and scammer developed such a slavishly devoted base or why a major political party turned itself on its head to follow him.

    [for Silentbob]

    My little aside was playing on ‘anointed’ being used in the sense of ‘appointed’, not just random whimsy.

    (A pointed)

  18. gijoel says

    I’m sending him my thoughts and prayers. After all it’s done so much for school shootings and natural disasters.

  19. heffe7 says

    Remember when the whole UN council laughed at him in 2017?? Haha
    He “didn’t expect that”!! LMAO! Good times!

  20. Rich Woods says

    Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anointed Trump president. Yet another fever-dream of the Christian Nationalists.

  21. nomdeplume says

    “Merciful”? “Your Plan”? “Your Annointed”? “fake charges”? “amazing things”? “bastion”? “evils”? “love”?

    Words lose all meaning for these people.

  22. StevoR says

    @ heffe7 : Yes, Yes, I do as Colbert dissects nicely at the hypertext link.

    @ 4. Pierce R. Butler : What kind of god needs a starship Trump in charge?

    An evil false one it would seem.. False because they all are, evil because, well, Trump.

    Worth noting for all the Christianists that loudly call for public prayer that the ancient Judaean philosopher they supposedly worship supposedly specifically told them NOT to pray in public :

    “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” – Jesus, yeah that one.

    So the guy they supposedly worship would call them hypocrites too – not just us!

    @17. Tethys : “Within Christian doctrine, the only anointed one is Jesus.”

    Pretty sure both Kings Saul and David and probly the other Jewish monarchs were also anointed at least.. Also annointing is a pretty major thing in the (most?) Orthodox and Catholic varieties of Christianity. See among other sources :


    As for the efficacy of prayers as an old meme once noted : Evangelicals make Trump a messiah, God sends a plague.

    I refer you to my comment about chrism. At that link you will find a little etymology, and a list of the various Christian sects that still use it.

    Jesus (the) Christ is an honorific that means The Anointed One . It is a singular grammatical inflectional ending st, suffixed to the Koine Greek verbal noun chrism.

    Compare the superlatives farthest, highest, brightest etc..

    Yabbut Jeff the God of Biscuits and Fergus the God of Hairdos still aren’t on board…

  25. Tethys says

    the Christiest? The Annointedest?

    Yep. You could say that on the scale of christians, Jesus is first, and Tfg is worst.

  26. jo1storm says

    If you translate Jesus Christ into English from Greek, you can get Joshua Covered in Oil. Or Oily Josh. So Jesus Christ and the apostles becomes “Oily Josh and the gang”. (read this on tumblr somewhere).

    A stoner god, perhaps? Meant to do it, but never got it together.
