Michele Bachmann: I Prayed Trump Into Office [VIDEO]

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

Last week, former Minnesota congresswoman and current “pastor to the United Nations” Michele Bachmann joined televangelist Kenneth Copeland to provide live analysis of President Trump’s State of the Union address, during which the two agreed that it was their prayers that helped turn the tide of the 2016 presidential election. Recalling her role in providing election night coverage for Copeland’s broadcast, Bachmann recounted how their prayer effort that night shifted the election for Trump.

“There is no doubt in my mind that we are still reaping [the benefits] from the miracles of all of the prayers that were happening at that time,” she said. “We kept writing on little sheets of paper, ‘We’ve got to pray for this precinct in this state,’ and we would send it out to the prayer warriors that were praying out here and they were lifting these things up to God because we were serious. We were serious before Him. Why? Because we knew and we trusted that He answers the prayers of His people.”

            Except when he doesn’t, but that’s because of not enough donations from fellow nutbags, not because of the nutbags themselves.
            God apparently loves the poorly educated.

          • Nowhereman

            God and republicans. It’s the only way they can get elected. That’s why Two Scoops appointed Betsy DeVos to be the Secretary of Education. Her main goal is to destroy the public school system and deliver the students to christian charter schools, on the public dime.

      • I doubt she has. A) it’s over a bookstore. B) She probably thinks Minneapolis and St Paul are the new Sodom and Gomorrah C) If she ever were in the Cities, Ladybird would probably run off to find himself a man.

        • lattebud

          What kind of bookstore? Maybe her husband has seen it

          • It’s a used and rare bookstore, so more literary fiction rather than the types of books you would find at Sex World or Smitten Kitten.

      God was not answering her prayers, but rather the one from below whom she serves. She’s a goddamn evil witch. The new hair color looks better though.

        Her queer husband may have begun advising her on matters pertaining to makeup and hair color.

      • Nowhereman

        They keep saying that he was just a covfefe boy, but they are drinking water.
        Seriously, this whole thing started with him getting drunk and bragging about how they were working with the Russians and how important he was in all that.

    • The_Wretched

      He went from the coffee guy to never met?

      Trump’s campaign and transition team was pretty small. Sam Clovis had 5 guys (all men). Cater Page and Papadoupolis were two of them.

      • Rebecca Gardner

        Give it a month and he will have never existed. Papadopoulos is just a name from Greek mythology.

        • David Walker

          He was the god who got caught for his infidelities and was made to wear a wire, right?

          • unsavedheathen

            Yes. While vultures ate his liver.

          • The_Wretched

            He’s the god who went and partied with the frost giants of the dessert island and while there alarmed the giants enough that they went and told the gods about him.

          • Nowhereman

            I know it was a typo, but I got a kick out of “dessert island.” I’d like some delicious chocolate cake please, with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

          • RoFaWh

            Two scoops, not one.

            We must never let an opportunity pass for getting under Fat Donny’s skin; you can never tell just what might trigger a fatal case of apoplexy.

          • Nowhereman

            In that case, gimme THREE scoops! One vanilla, one chocolate, and one strawberry!

          • The_Wretched

            intentional for the fantasy metaphor

        • Nowhereman

          Trump will claim that Papa Dopoulo’s is a chicken/pizza joint.

  • 2patricius2

    I have been reading some articles lately about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Protestant pastor who was part of the resistance to Hitler and his Nazi regime. He was arrested and put in a concentration camp and subsequently hanged. He was very disturbed with the collusion between the Nazi regime and Protestant and Catholic Churches alike. What a difference between Bachman and Copeland, whose smarmy obsequious praise of a white nationalist, vengeful president make them look like toadies, and Bonhoeffer who paid for his opposition with his life.

    No one knows how this current administration and the Republican Party will turn out. We are ourselves writing part of the history by our actions. But one thing is clear: no matter how it ends, these “religious” leaders such as Copeland and Bachman, Robertson and Graham, and the whole lot of them will be seen as complicit in the evil that Drumpf and his party are perpetrating on our country and our world in this period of history.

    • DoctorDJ

      Bonhoeffer has become a 20th century “saint” to the evangelicals.

      They conveniently forget that Bonhoeffer was murdered, not by some hideous “others,” but by his good Catholic and Lutheran neighbors.

    • William

      There was a priest in Berlin who gave some dangerously anti-Hitler sermons. Can’t think of his name.
      Many of the imprisoned clergy were sent to Sachsenhausen concentration camp north of Berlin. It’s worth visiting if you are in the area.

      • Nowhereman

        He finally delegated Texas high school football games to Jesus…

    • Like most 5 year olds goD doesn’t clean up behind himself.

    • Nowhereman

      So that truckload of thoughts and prayers they sent instead of food, water and repair crews didn’t do it? I’m just shocked!

  • American Patriot

    I love her hair. Who knew Marcus was such a good stylist.

      It’s the ‘Melania’ do; same extensions and highlights. As the saying goes: the party that dyes its hair together destroys the State department together.

  • Texndoc

    Marcus : Red. I might have known you’d wear red.

    The scary thing about her is not that she’s a crackpot but that so many people were willing to elect her to school boards, Congress and possibly the Senate.

    All that praying and Donald Trump is the best he could do? A lying, racist, misogynistic, twice-divorced, adulterous narcissist who worships money over god?

      What’s not to like? He is the very image of their god.

      • StudioTodd

        Well, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised–any god who would knock up a teenage girl without her consent and then not even cover her hospital expenses so that she has to give birth in a barn isn’t exactly a paragon of virtue. So I guess the Trump comparison is valid.

    Prayers on election night would have been a little late – after all the votes had been cast. Perhaps she prayed for vote-counting hanky panky.

    “So, Michelle, you believe that an almighty and eternal god will do what you tell him to? Really? Say, look at this stylish jacket with the extra-long sleeves.

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    Poor Michele! Her Gawd didn’t put HER in as Prez. What? He doesn’t like you? He doesn’t want a woman in the office? I think *I* would be really pissed off that Gawd chose such an imbecile as 45 and not herself. There’s no bragging rights in saying you got passed over. FYI: It wasn’t Gawd, it was the Russians, Michey.
