Trump, thou shalt drive the media mad

U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem May 14 2018The mainstream media and politicians are wading into controversy over the Bible, Israel's history, and Donald Trump – and it's not going well for some.

The day after the United States held a ceremony opening its embassy in historic Jerusalem, Nikki Haley told her counterparts at the United Nations that the United States will defend Israel.

She went on to quote from Isaiah, the Old Testament book, by describing Israel as a "light unto the nations."

After the embassy ceremony concluded, Judge Jeanine Pirro opened her Fox News show with a lesson on Israel's history with the Promised Land.

Trump at Western Wall"Donald Trump recognized history," she said at one point. "He, like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the God worshiped by Jews, Christians, and yes, Muslims."

Yet the idea that Donald Trump – the longtime brash, billionaire playboy - could be used by God was enough to send MSNBC host Joe Scarborough into blasphemic shock.

"I think it is in Lamentations, the verse that she quoted after that," Scarborough scoffed, "truly these are biblical times, that a porn-star will be born unto you. And her name shall be Stormy."

That, of course, was a reference to the adult film actress who possibly had an affair with Trump years ago. But the MSNBC host, a former GOP congressman, was also referencing Old Testament prophecy proclaiming the birth of Jesus.

"That is a mockery," responded Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, "and I wouldn't want to be anywhere near Rockefeller Center."

Then there's Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, GOP presidential candidate, and now U.S. Senate candidate in Utath. He suggested in a tweet that Pastor Robert Jeffress is a "bigot" who should have been barred from praying at the May 14 embassy ceremony in Jerusalem.

The reason for such a statement? Jeffress has stated he believes Jesus is the only way to God. 

Responding to the criticism, Jeffress told Todd Starnes of Fox News Radio that there was really nothing to see here.

"The fact that I, along with tens of millions of Evangelicals around the world continue to believe that Christ is the way to heaven," said Jeffress, "that's really not newsworthy and it certainly doesn't qualify me as a bigot."
