Joe Scarborough Says Trump is the Antithesis of a Christian

On Tuesday morning, Joe Scarborough took apart congressional Republicans and conservative Christians for letting President Donald Trump use and abuse them.

The host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” voiced frustration over how the Senate Majority Leader and the House Speaker are willing to be devalued and humiliated by Trump. “For some reason, for all of their collective wisdom, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have never understood that they are a separate and equal part of the legislative branch,” said Scarborough.

Scarborough then ripped right into Trump’s evangelical base. “It is a joke,” he said, “and people will look back and wonder, ‘What the hell happened, what fever gripped the conservative, what fever gripped the Republican Party, what fever gripped my own people — the people I grew up with, the people who helped me get elected — the evangelicals that go to Value Voter Summits, or whatever they call it, and give Steve Bannon a standing ovation, welcome Donald Trump as a conquering hero?’”

Incensed over what he saw as a ridiculous situation, Scarborough added, “You look in Matthew and go through the Beatitudes, every single Beatitude, you go through Jesus’ teaching, what he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it. None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way, it seems, to thumb his nose at all conventions, including the basics of the Beatitudes.”

Scarborough is, of course, not the only one baffled by Trump’s obvious anti-Christian ethics and the mystery of his Christian base.

Recently horror writer Stephen King tweeted out, “If Donald Trump had been in Jerusalem back in the day, Jesus would have driven him out of the temple with the rest of the moneychangers.”

Quoting Jesus Christ, King wrote, “‘Take these things away! Do not make my Father’s house a house of trade,'” adding, “Trump calls himself a Christian, but you tell me.”
