Pat Robertson explains that those opposing Trump are really fighting against God.
Spinning a bizarre conspiracy on today’s edition of “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson argued that Democrats and others who are working against President Trump are actually working against the will of God.
Right Wing Watch reports the televangelist “wondered if President Obama and other Democrats may have participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down President Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn.”
Robertson also suggests that those people opposing Trump are challenging God’s authority. Referring to Psalm 2:2, “The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed,” Robertson said:
I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America. These other people have been trying to destroy America. These left-wingers and so-called progressives are trying to destroy the country that we love and take away the freedoms they love. They want collectivism. They want socialism. What we’re looking at is free markets and freedom from this terrible, overarching bureaucracy. They want to fight as much as they can but I think the good news is the Bible says, “He that sits in the heavens will laugh them to scorn,” and I think that Trump’s someone on his side that is a lot more powerful than the media.
Before the election, Robertson defended Trump after the president was caught bragging about his sexual assault of women in a lewd video released before the election.
At the time Robertson dismissed Trump’s confession that he sexually assaulted women and could get away with it, arguing that Trump was simply “trying to look like he’s macho.”
Bottom line: Pat Robertson is still alive; and he believes that his imaginary God is a Trump-loving, conservative Christian, just like him.
