Trump Sics Military On Peaceful Protesters And Clergy To Make Way For Bible Photo Op 5

On Monday, the President of the United States ordered military police to fire on peaceful demonstrators assembled outside the White House, including church clergy members, so he could walk to St. John's Church to pose with a Bible for the most bizarre and pointless photo op of this presidency to date. #Colbert #StephenAtHome #Monologue

He clenched that Bible as if he were terrified that it would open and one word of love, peace, or worse - mercy - may have spilled onto his dinky mitts. What a total schmuck.

I'm far from a Justin Trudeau fan, but even I have to give him props for that long pause that let everyone know what he really thinks/wanted to say before coming up with a diplomatically acceptable line.

When the "Protestants" in charlottesville shouted "jews will not replace us" he said how there were good people on both sides. Now he does this. Shame on him.

Tramp doesn’t know Jesus anymore any than he knows his kids.

The church sign behind him reads “All are welcome.” It clearly doesn’t include his allies, the peaceful protesters.

Concerning Trudeau. Last year, in reply to some opposition parties calling to release the army on the blockading First Nations, he answered, " I flatly refuse to send the Canadian army against Canadian citizens."
Trump could learn from Trudeau.

Um, why didn’t anyone even ask him, “why are you holding the Bible?

You fools! Trump can't enter a church. He'd immediately catch fire...

And you didn't even show the worst of the footage. Those guys attacking with the big shields were like something out of a dystopian nightmare. Even blatantly repeatedly bashing a news cameraman just holding his camera

Hey, Melania Trump, how’s your anti-bullying campaign going?

I find it noticeable that Stephen did a Sign of the Cross after making jokes of 45's parodic perspective over religion; it would be seen as blasphemous on his part. It's a subtle reminder that Stephen is a devout Roman Catholic, he can recite Latin verses and their meaning and other trivia by memory, and is so well-versed that he teaches Sunday school. And all of that should inform the viewer the disgust and shame he must be feeling for 45 to appropriate the symbols of his faith for a cheap photo op and to enact violence on peaceful protesters while simultaneously wrecking the 1st amendment.

“Religious leaders really liked seeing me on the steps with the Bible.” Since when is the President’s agenda defined by “Religious leaders???” I have FIVE critical words for this: SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
