Trump Brings Hellfire to the Prayer Breakfast

Today’s National Prayer breakfast may be a foreshadowing to Trump’s noon speech. But after the obvious call outs to friends and enemies in the audience, what is left to say?

Nancy, Ignored

Trump thanked those in attendance, the VP, the Cabinet members present. The random friends and politicians in the audience. Noted for not being mentioned — Nancy Pelosi. Three seats down, chomping her gums in frustration Nancy Pelosi sat awkwardly unrecognized.

Trump talked of the pain and hurt caused by the impeachment process. Referring to those who put his family through this difficulty as dishonest and corrupt. He further dug into Pelosi  (and likely Romney) by decrying the false platitudes of those who use their religion to bolster political machinations, and his utter dislike for those who offer their prayers without sincerity.

I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say they pray for you when they know that’s not so …”

He continued taking about the friends turned enemies. Presumably a reference to Mitt Romney who said this about his impeachment vote,

Does anyone seriously believe that I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?”

Trump then touched on the growing economy, and legislation protecting school prayer, and lauded the work done for protecting unborn life.

Stand-by, After the Prayers the Gloves Come Off

But if the National Prayer Breakfast is any indication of things to come, Pelosi’s weekly presser wedged between this event and Trump’s noon event will bring some fireworks.

Nobody puts Nancy in a corner! Lisa Carr writes about Nancy’s tantrums in this post.

Trump is absolutely gunning for a “uge” victory in 2020, and I don’t think he wants anything short of a full take-over for a political full house. He reminded those watching to vote, and made this standout comment,

When they impeach you for nothing, it’s not easy”

No, Mr. President, it’s not. But with post acquittal approval ratings at 49%, vindication feels pretty good.

    Action Item for Wile E. Pelosi:

    Resignation followed by seppuku.

    Unfortunately, I think the speech was inappropriate for the National Prayer Breakfast. It should have focused on God, not Trump. But it’s tough, coming as close as it does on the heels of Impeachmass, the Dems’ behavior at SOTU, and other crap they’ve thrown his way.

    Also, I wonder at anyone calling themselves Christian and inviting Pelosi to an event like this.
    There’s “all Christians are hypocrites” and then there’s Pelosi, who denies the very tenets and authority of the religion she claims.

    • GWB~ I was waiting for lightening to strike. Her stance on abortion is enough to leave me walking 10 steps behind her at church.

      I agree. His tenor and language were not appropriate to the setting. It was self-aggrandizing to wave the headline in that setting. His record is strong with the Christian and Jewish communities, and he should have taken the opportunity to pull in those on the fringe. In doing so he could have left Nancy alone in the cold. His behavior appeared antagonistic and may cost him some support, while making her a sympathetic character. After all, she was “trying to do the right thing” for the American people. He needs to maintain the goodwill following his SOTU and acquittal. Keep the rally tone on the stump trail.
