Trump Won’t Stop Tweeting His Anger At The NFL

26 September 2017

On Tuesday morning, obsessive Donald was STILL Tweeting about the NFL, making all sorts of wild claims that are completely untrue. The man has a serious problem and he doesn’t understand that he’s just digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole that he can’t possibly climb out of. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

From Haaretz daily in Israel:

Trump’s Evangelical Adviser on Fox News: NFL Players Lucky ‘They Are Not Shot in the Head’

Evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress addressed the ongoing battle between Donald Trump and kneeling NFL players on “Fox and Friends” Monday saying that these players should “be thanking God” they haven’t been “shot in the head.”

“I think what these players are doing is absolutely wrong,” Jeffress said. “These players ought to be thanking God that they live in a country where they’re not only free to earn millions of dollars every year, but they’re also free from the worry of being shot in the head for taking a knee like they would be if they were in North Korea.”

This is not Jeffress’s first inflammatory statement, in mid-September he said God “is not necessarily an open borders guy,” also while appearing on “Fox and Friends” – where he is a paid contributor. Jeffress made that comment while on the program discussing a letter by Christian leaders imploring Trump to use “Christian compassion” when it comes to immigration.

Jeffress, a Southern Baptist pastor who leads a televised ministry in Dallas, serves as an informal advisor to Trump on faith-based issues and led Trump in prayer from the Oval Office after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas.

Media Matters for America compiled a clip of some of Jeffress’s most extreme statements made on camera. The clip includes Jeffress saying the “the dark dirty secret of Islam is that it is a religion that promotes pedophilia.” Jeffress also says “you can’t be saved by being a Jew” and “Mormonism is heresy from the pit of hell.”

Jeffress made headlines in August as well when he claimed the Bible gives Trump “moral authority to use whatever force necessary” against North Korea.
