(Tea Party PAC) – The Democrats are starting to realize that it’s all falling apart.
On Friday, famed race-baiter and MSNBC personality, Al Sharpton joined “Morning Joe” to weigh in on whether or not it’s likely that President Donald Trump will land another term in the White House.
(Spoiler alert: he will.)
Sharpton said that Americans should be “uncomfortable” knowing that Trump could, in fact, secure re-election.
“I think voters really that are struggling … which is a lot of base of the Democratic Party, are really trying to deal with kitchen-table issues. That’s what we’ve got to address, particularly while you have a president that’s bragging about the economy,” Sharpton explained.
“Right now, we cannot say with any confidence that Donald Trump would not be reelected. That should make us uncomfortable,” he added.
Ha! Damn right. They should be very uncomfortable. Not only do they have absolutely no one remotely viable to run against him, but his presidency has been historically successful and his job approval ratings remain high…even during impeachment!
Last week, Sharpton told the hosts of “Morning Joe” that he believed Christian leaders backing Trump would “sell Jesus out” to get…whatever it is he thinks Christian leaders are gaining in some sort of dishonest way from Trump.
Does he think they’d “sell Jesus out” to get abortion banned or protect religious liberties? That’s sort of all these people want from him.
“We had Mark Galli, the editor of Christianity Today on ‘PoliticsNation’ last night,” he said. “And he made it very clear. This is not a political position. It’s a moral one. And by raising it to that level and putting it in that perspective, he not only exposes the president, but he exposes a lot of the evangelical leaders saying ‘I support the president on his judicial nominees. I support the president on a lot of things,’ which I don’t, but he does. He says, ‘But you can’t get away from his immorality. you can’t get away from his divisiveness, his lying, his race-baiting.’ He laid it out. I think there’s a scripture that said what profits a man to gain the world and lose his own soul, he’s actually challenging them that are you bargaining and selling your soul for some judicial appointments and some other things that the right wants, but you’ve given up the soul of the church? What do we stand for?
“I think it’s a devastating blow,” Sharpton continued. “This is a magazine, Mika, that was founded by Billy Graham. They also supported the impeachment of Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. So why all of a sudden is it so controversial with these leaders that they would come for the impeachment of Donald Trump when they did it to Bill Clinton? The evangelical leaders weren’t insulted. When they did it to Richard Nixon, they weren’t. The reason they’re so offended is it’s exposing all of them that they would take the shameless conman over the principles that they’re preaching in the holy season as we celebrate Jesus. They would sell Jesus out if they felt they could get something from it is the inference he’s saying from his editorial. And that’s sad on many levels.”
