Earlier this year, Sarah Huckabee Sanders sat down with the Christian Broadcasting Network to talk about her boss, President Trump. During the interview, Sanders confidently stated that God himself would have likely pulled the lever for Trump.
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president,” Sanders said of the man who had an affair with an adult film star and others. “And that’s why he’s there, and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
She’s right about that last part, Trump has enjoyed rock-solid support from the white Evangelical community throughout his candidacy and presidency. He’s also enjoyed the support of right-wing televangelists and their ilk who are even shameless enough to offer their full-throated support after Trump’s affairs with multiple women came to light.
Jerry Falwell Jr.—giving a new meaning to “turning the other cheek”—has done a dramatic about-face from his father’s views about whether or not elected leaders should follow the teachings of the bible.
You nuts attacking @realDonaldTrump for securing the border need to show me where Jesus told Caesar how to run Rome. Jesus taught personal charity but went out of His way to say render unto Caesar that which is his. Jesus never told Caesar to let barbarians illegally enter Rome.— Jerry Falwell (@JerryFalwellJr) March 9, 2019
Not a single Evangelical supporter blinked an eye last week when Trump was caught autographing bibles for his supporters in Alabama after he toured the devastation caused by deadly tornadoes. (One of the bibles was later listed on eBay for over $300.)

But while members of “the flock” were unbothered, all of this anti-Christian behavior cloaked in religiosity rubbed one false idol the wrong way. That’s why “God” (or at least someone who pretends to be God on Facebook and Twitter) decided to take his message that Trump was definitely not a Christian president to Washington. (Full disclosure, “God” is involved with the promotion of this site and is really present in all things, when you think about it).
In the wee hours of the morning on Monday, Washingtonians were treated to a billboard truck from the Notorious G.O.D. himself carrying the good news.

Today, just to drive the point home, the billboard circled the sentencing hearing of Trump’s former campaign manager and (literal) partner in (alleged!) crime, Paul Manafort, and graced CNN with his goodness:
It even made a pass by Trump’s hotel:
And the crowd went wild:

Reached for comment, God said he was motivated by the pure villainy of the Trump administration and the galling hypocrisy of his “Christian” allies.
“When we let them get away with this, the very idea of god and goodness becomes meaningless,” he said.
