Trump Mocks White House Press Before Cabinet Meeting Prayer: You Need The Prayer More Than I Do [VIDEO]

Via Mediaite:

Because he’s Donald Trump, one slam against the political press per day is never enough. Trump held a cabinet briefing where he gloated about his first year in office and the imminent success of the GOP’s tax bill. During his round table, Trump invited HUD Secretary Ben Carson to say a prayer for the room and the president turned that into an opportunity to swipe at the media again.

    It is horrible to think tRump actually tops GWB.

      by an exponential factor.

    • jerry

      Or that the GOP could never, ever come up with someone who would make GWB look smart.

    • dogdadny

      Or that he’d have so much help. Most had a good idea of who and what he is and would do but all the reveals was and continues to dumbfound.

  • kaydenpat

    So he’s boasting about destroying the ACA which helped millions of Americans get access to affordable healthcare. How presidential.

    • Goodboy

      Then sleepy says a prayer and the Christo fascist supporters cheer!! I’m sure Jesus would so approve.

    He’s feeling good. I bet he has THREE scoops of ice cream tonight!

    • AmeriCanadian

      Yep. And he’ll become even more pompous, if that’s at all possible. I hope his overconfidence causes him to stumble…badly!

      Fake news; neither Cruz nor Trump are eating at that time, and neither are trying to shove the others away from the good bits.

      • olandp

        It looks like the Trump has already eaten all of his…

    • clay

      Cruz– didn’t get his private religious school funding.
      also, Prince-DeVos– didn’t get their private school anti-competitive advantage.

    Maybe he has become an Evangelical, he has the judgy lingo down.

  • Kenster999

    I also enjoyed Ben Carson’s prayer, where he thanked God for political unity, an expanding economy, and a strong country. Ya know, just like Jesus would have said.

  • Goodboy

    Fuck face the sleepy is thanking god for the tax plan that will curb the corrosive debt huh.

    • Tomcat

      I am betting it gets there MUCH earlier.

    • Treant

      That’s workable (my debt is actually greater than my income, but that’s not a problem–it’s true of pretty much anybody with an early to middle-years mortgage), but it’s definitely not a good trend.

    Gary Kasaprov was just on NPR as part of a sound clip for a later interview. He says to not concentrate on who he attacks, which is petty. Instead concentrate on the institutions he attacks — that’s what dictators do.

  • Tomcat

    Now lets take back everything and show the GOP how it was suppose to be done.

  • iambu

    Setting aside the predictable trump bullshit, just a question: Why is my government wasting my time fucking praying? You wanna pray? Go to your house of worship. You wanna be involved in shaping my government? Then stop jacking off to Jesus and get back to work*, K?

    *Or just go away, Ben Carson, you’re useless.

    • Tomcat

      All part of injecting religion into everyone’s life even if you don’t want it.

      • iambu

        GUH we need more open atheists/agnostics/humanists/secularists/religious people who know why it’s vital to keep it to themselves while in office/etc. in our government. I know, I know, obvious comment is obvious…

  • AtticusP

    I think that prayer is bullshit. But, if it did work, it’s our republic that needs the prayers.

    It survived a Civil War, but I don’t know if it can survive this serial liar and his band of fellow thieves.

    Meanwhile, Nikki Haley goes full Corleone at the UN.

    Haley writes: “As you consider your vote, I encourage you to know the president and the US take this vote personally.

    “The president will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I report back on those who voted against us,” she continued.

    Haley followed the letter by tweeting: “At the UN we’re always asked to do more & give more. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American ppl, abt where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us. On Thurs there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice. The US will be taking names.”

      If the threat was supposed to sway votes, it backfired spectacularly. The vote on the Security Council was 14 to 1, with the U.S. totally isolated.

    • zhera

      They’re treating the UN as THEIR own little charity organization. THEY decide what to do, THEY make the rules, THEY take the ball and go home if the others don’t agree.

        Donald can cut off aid, certainly. From another Guardian story:

        The warning appeared aimed largely at UN members in Africa, Asia and Latin America who are regarded as more vulnerable to US pressure.

        Egypt, which drafted Monday’s UN security council resolution which the US vetoed, is particularly vulnerable, receiving $1.2bn in US aid last year.

        But Trump’s comments may also resonate elsewhere – including in the UK which is hoping to negotiate a quick post-Brexit trade deal with Washington.

        https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/20/donald-trump-threat-cut-aid-un-jerusalem-vote

        I’m sure the Chinese can pick up a few African countries here and there if Donald cuts them loose. As for the UK, it will be interesting to see how they put up with perfidious America.

    I’ve never seen Republicans so happy to be getting a tax increase and exploding the debt and deficit.

    Trump praying is hilarious. These SPAMgelical rubes really think that he believes in God.

    Fighting the corrosive debt that is destroying our future? SO, where does an extra 1.5 trillion deficit fit into that exactly? These people are are stunningly stupid.

    • sadoldguy

      They don’t care.
      Somebody else’s problem.

    • bkmn

      That extra deficit will be used – to gut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, if they have their way.

      • pi may

        which ironically disproportionately effects trumpkind and not me, don’t get me wrong and maybe I’m a socialpath but my attitude we are going to have to provide private help to the needy and plenty of opiod esp Chinese deadly synthetics to the Trumpkind, just MHO

    • stevenj

      The $trillion+ deficit is a gift to the next Democrat in the WH from the Republican Welcome Wagon.

  • bkmn

    I might actually pray, for Trump’s impeachment and criminal convictions.

  • zhera

    WHY is the press still showing up for these things? How much cheeto-ass can one suck before it’s enough?

    • billbear1961

      Because, basically, they’re lackeys.

        I think that is what he meant by facing “the winds of controversy.”

  • billbear1961

    His GANGSTER government is poised to ROB the American people, already letting poor kids suffer without healthcare, and planning to let tens of thousands die prematurely ever year without the medical assistance they’ll need.

    When the government of a supposedly “free” country is actively harming–going out of its WAY to harm–the majority of the people it’s supposed to be serving to benefit only the chosen few–and to further enrich its own members–I no longer consider its authority legitimate. But I’m funny that way. When the government of what WAS a genuine democracy has been taken over by the lackeys of criminal plutocrats, I call that a COUP. I don’t care if it has the cloak of legality–what they are doing is a CRIME. Blatant, flagrant corruption is still WRONG, even when the criminals who’ve managed, by hook or by crook, to gain control of all the levers of power–the criminals who are laughing in your faces–say otherwise.

    PROTEST, and stop their CRIMES!!

  • MikeBx2

    If the press wasn’t in the room to report on it, showboating a prayer for the Evangelicals would have never entered his mind.

    Actually, I came online to share this from Electoral-Vote (pretty much everything else I say, at this point, is a broken record):

    The deputy AG is Mueller’s boss because AG Jeff Sessions has recused himself. Rosenstein has taken a hands-off position with respect to Mueller and let him do what he wants without interference. If Trump fired Rosenstein and replaced him with (an acting) deputy AG, Mueller’s new boss could insist that Mueller report to him every day with his plans for tomorrow, which the new acting deputy AG could veto. He could insist on seeing every subpoena and request for information in advance and veto them all. He could make Mueller’s life hell and prevent him from making progress. This could all be done under the radar without anyone in Congress calling for the new deputy’s head. It might be the ideal way to block Mueller without making waves.

    http://www.electoral-vote.com/evp2017/Senate/Maps/Dec20.html#item-3

    E-V does suggest Mueller, being very clever and experienced, might find a way around this kind of interference.

      I’ve been saying for a long while now that Rosenstein needs protection…

    Donald Trump is a filthy, disgusting pig afflicted with syphilitic brain damage. He is a catastrophic mass of frozen diarrhea, pimple puss and putrid bone marrow extracted from the corpse of Pol Pot. In other words, I really dislike him.

    “Napoleon was now never spoken of simply as “Napoleon.” He was always referred to in formal style as “our Leader, Comrade Napoleon,” and this pigs liked to invent for him such titles as Father of All Animals, Terror of Mankind, Protector of the Sheep-fold, Ducklings’ Friend, and the like. In his speeches, Squealer would talk with the tears rolling down his cheeks of Napoleon’s wisdom the goodness of his heart, and the deep love he bore to all animals everywhere, even and especially the unhappy animals who still lived in ignorance and slavery on other farms. It had become usual to give Napoleon the credit for every successful achievement and every stroke of good fortune. You would often hear one hen remark to another, “Under the guidance of our Leader, Comrade Napoleon, I have laid five eggs in six days”; or two cows, enjoying a drink at the pool, would exclaim, “Thanks to the leadership of Comrade Napoleon, how excellent this water tastes!” – Animal Farm

  • Acronym Jim

    You need the prayer more than I do, I think. You may be the only ones.”

    That last sentence is the opposite of the very foundation of Christian belief. Why isn’t mainstream Christianity being more vociferous in condemning this charlatan?
