For all those who believe Donald Trump is seeking the Republican presidential nomination as a joke, as I once did, we now have clear evidence to the contrary. For all those skeptical Trump watchers who think the Donald’s quest for the Republican presidential nomination is fake, I suggest you think again. For all those naysayers who believe the man is doing all this to set-up his new reality show or to promote a forthcoming book, I would like for you to consider this … Donald Trump had hands laid on him by a group of crazy Evangelicals.
Donald Trump is a self-described germaphobe. He hates handshakes. He doesn’t like being touched. He has even admitted he doesn’t like to push a ground floor elevator button because it’s been tapped by so many people!
In what can be only be described as his weirdest political stunt so far, the GOP presidential frontrunner met and prayed with about 40 “religious leaders” in his Trump Tower office last week. And he allowed the crazies to press some flesh!
If you haven’t seen the video, you owe it to yourself to watch (YouTube). The highlight comes towards the end of the performance when a Jews For Jesus rabbi (hum, I thought that’s the definition of a Christian?), lays his hand on Trumps forehead. Trump reflexively reaches to repel the fake rabbi’s hand as it is about to touch him, but pulls back at the last second. That had to be so hard.
Only a true candidate would go through such a trying and painful experience. Only someone who is in it to win would put up with what must have seemed like an eternity just to pander to what I’m sure Trump secretly believes are right-wing, religious headcases. As I watch Trump’s unease and pained facial expression, he looks to me like a man who hasn’t had a good bowel movement in quite some time.
I had to laugh at the delicious irony of listening to the “religious leaders” offer up prayers for a man who most likely has never read a biblical passage in his life! As Trump stood there, clutching a Bible, I couldn’t help but think, “This man is as much a man of God as I am the illegitimate son of the Dalai Lama.”
