Trump – Only I can question people’s religion.

Well after the kerfuffle over Pope Francis calling Trump not a Christian (not what the Pope actually said, but let’s not let facts get in the way of reality) we don’t have to go back too far to point out Trump’s hypocrisy. One week is all we have to go back to…

And of course back in late 2015, Trump questioned Carson’s religion:

“I’m Presbyterian,” Trump said. “Boy, that’s down the middle of the road, folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know about.”

So yesterday after Pope Francis said: “Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as “animal politicus.” So at least I am a human person. As to whether I am a pawn, well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people. And then, a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”

I guess metaphor’s are a bit too tough for Trump to understand.

Trump attacked the pope: “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful,” Trump, 69, said in a statement on his official site on Thursday, February 18.

So in Trump-world, only Religious leaders cannot question a person’s faith. However Trump can question anyone’s faith. Hypocrisy thy name is Trump.

Point Made – Trump is a hypocrite. It doesn’t matter to his voters, will it matter to others?
