LIVE VIDEO: Trump Speaks At National Prayer Breakfast

CNN reports:

President Donald Trump will attend the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, a prime networking opportunity for Beltway insiders. But this year’s event is also an opportunity for dozens of Russians. As many as 60 representatives from Russia’s religious and political elite are expected to attend, more than three times last year’s number, according to Russian officials.

One Russian official who was invited, Aleksandr Zharkov, told the Russian business newspaper RBC, “It’s a very unique situation, because despite all these difficulties we have (in relations with the US), the quota for Russians is very high this year.” Added Zharkov, “It is a sin not to use any platform possible for negotiations between different layers of society.”

The spike in the number of Russians attending the event compared to last year comes amid multiple ongoing investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as continued fallout from Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Besides all those Russians, every major anti-LGBT hate group will be in the room.

      Is that actually Trump?

        TinEye reverse image search suggests Harveyrabbit has photoshopped out a fluorescent yellow cap and given him his bald head and fake blond mane.

      Trigger warning, please!! Just ate breakfast. Blechhhhh!

    • Librarykid

      Or if religious faith improved intelligence.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Mark Burnett, Guardian of the Trump N-word Tapes.

    • At this point, would it really make any difference if they were released? His base use that word on a daily basis and won’t care less. And everyone already knows he’s a fuckin’ racist from his actions over the past year.

      • Todd20036

        No. It wouldn’t make a difference anymore.

        It might not have made a difference even during the campaign

        • Harveyrabbit

          His base would have cheered and used it as a GOTV campaign slogan.

        • Gerry Fisher

          I think that some moderates or “I dislike him intensely but I always vote Republican” folks might have been scared off. But the base? Wouldn’t have made a difference.

      • Librarykid

        If his presence at a prayer breakfast does not at least bring down the ceiling in the room if not the whole building, the one to whom they are praying does not give a damn.

      • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

        It would endear him even more to his base, for sure, but I think it would embarrass other Republicans in their support of him. I’d love to watch them squirm trying to defend that, especially Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

        • Dean Cameron

          Sarah doesn’t actually squirm… it’s just the way she walks!

    • narutomania

      Exactly! I was going to point out the same thing. And old Drumpf is just going to keep kissing Burnett’s plump ass to ensure that those tapes never get out.

    • Gerry Fisher

      mmm-hmmm!

  • Gustav2

    I’d rather watch the Olympic curling competition on NBCSN.

  • Gretchen

    On this National Day of Prayer let us us all take a moment to think of the great religious leader Mark Burnett.

  • Rex

    Dear God, it’s me Donald.
    Who?

    • Librarykid

      Donald who?

  • Fuck.
    Wishes and prayers obviously do not work.
    Fuck.

  • Rex

    Don’t tweet out the need for God’s help, but be sure to mention your TV show.

    • Todd20036

      And mention Apprentice. Because God fuckers love that.

  • Todd20036

    This is where the religious fucktards suck up to the fact that even their lame justifications for their stupid religion fall away.,

    If Obama made 1/100th of the errors Trump did,they’d be in lynch mode.

    But because Trump broke every one of their rules while white and male, it’s all good.

    And people wonder why millennials are even less religious than Gen Xers are

    • Talisman

      Ha Ha…”Errors”.

      It’s sweet that you believe that. 🙂

  • Is he having Egg McMuffins brought in?

  • Gustav2

    “the quota for Russians is very high this year.”

    Maybe these Russians.

      And here Putin thought he could get rid of all the gays in Russia. He can’t even get rid of them in his own freaking army

      There’s no nudity. It’s not NSFW

    • Dazzer

      The best thing about that video is that the cadets were all going to be disciplined and expelled.

      However, ordinary Russians started doing their own copy of the cadets’ dance routine and it created something of a sensation.

      As a result, no action was taken – overtly – against the cadets.

      Did someone slip a memo in his copy of “My Pet Goat”?

    • ChrisMorley

      Bush said the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, had “a chip on his shoulder … because the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him. Therefore, much of his moves [are] to regain Soviet hegemony.”
      He stressed the need to back Nato and other alliances the US has with the rest of the world. Putin was “pushing, constantly pushing, probing weaknesses. That’s why Nato is very important,” Bush said.

      • Rolf

        Thank you for that. It has now become incredibly obvious to me Putin’s reason for manipulating the election to make the Turnip president – he would be such an embarrassment, would ruin the reputation of the US world-wide, alienate the US’s allies, especially in NATO, give the world the impression the US is a nation of imbecilic, incompetent, racist white trash intent on isolationism and selfishness both in trade and international aid.

        And it is pretty much a fait accompli.

      • BobSF_94117

        It’s not primarily about Russian hegemony. It’s mostly about humiliating the U.S. and knocking us out of world leadership forever.

    • Librarykid

      That was fast.

      • David Walker

        Lightning speed for a republican.

    • The_Wretched

      Good.

      THE George W. Bush who said, “I looked him in the eye and found him to be trustworthy.”?

  • billbear1961

    A gang of FAKE “Christians,” grifters who worship nothing but brute power and wealth, conspiring with a Nazi hatemonger, abusive womanizer, thief, and LIAR and the murderous Putin’s gangsters to overthrow the Republic!

  • j.martindale

    Prayers are useless. I have been screaming “God Damn Trump” since November of ’16, and nothing comes of it.

    • Michael White

      the giant dog in the sky is like the lottery: you have to say the right number of prayers in the right order at the right time with the right posture. Just keep trying/s

      • Librarykid

        It’s hard to accuse a dog of hate which is how so many religions pervert the source of unconditional love.

    • Librarykid

      My daily prayer is “God Damn the entire GOP: officials, office holders and supporters totally, completely and forever. Let the name be an eternal curse causing wailing and gnashing of teeth”

    To fit with the moral of one of their own stories, shouldn’t the outcome be something like that for the Tower of Babel?

      42 months? So this is only the beginning of the crazy?

        Can we back-date to when he won the nomination? To when he started campaigning? Please?

  • greenmanTN

    What the hell do you even do at a “prayer breakfast?”

    • greenmanTN

      Well if it was me I’d be praying for the quick demise of everyone else there.

    • clay

      network with other lobbyists.

      Savor sausages and hate, with suitable blessing, of course.

    • Dazzer

      Vodka, tomato juice, splash of Tabasco and stick of celery…

      …and then any good looking pastor who’s on the down low.

      Perhaps a cigarette and a croissant afterwards.

  • billbear1961

    Will he beg forgiveness for his numerous adulteries, including the illicit tryst with the porn star????

  • jeffg166

    The Russian delegation will be mostly operatives delivering the latest payment to trump.

    • bzrd

      or asking when he can make his next payment on the billions he owes

  • Bambino
  • ceeenbee

    “ . . . including T.V. producer mark burnett of our wonderful 14 season apprentice triumph . . .”

    How pathetic. Like the ramblings of an old, unemployed, bald, tiny-fingered drunk reliving the glory days of when he scored a TD in the big high school cross town rivalry.

    Sad.

  • clay

    Is it at Trump International?

  • clay

    M.C. in Chief of the Toastmasters, International?

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    As an atheist, I believe no politician should go to this. Having Russians there makes it even more worthy of skipping.

  • Joe in PA

    Gag.

  • kaydenpat

    And Trump will use this opportunity to praise God … I mean praise Trump. Because Trump’s god is named Donald Trump.

  • TexasBoy
    • Gianni

      I’m sure Donnie wishes he could have it there. He’d have to keep mopping his salivating blowhole while he’s speaking just thinking about the burger and fries he’s going to tear into afterward.

      and the nut house used to be full of the crazies

  • boatboy_srq

    Probsbly the most Orthodox* thing Lord Dampnut has done to date.

    *as in Orthodox Xtianist

  • Gianni

    His hair should go up in flames (It’s a particular wish of mine.) just for attending and planning to speak.

  • Gianni

    Donnie has warm fuzzy feelings for anything Russian. The more the merrier for him. Putin likely sent him a note informing him that X-number of Russians will be in attendance this year – make them welcome and make sure the FBI doesn’t tail them.

  • William

    Does anyone ever think, ‘Maybe a bus load of Russians doesn’t look right’?

  • Paula

    Wait. What? Was the breakfast so bad that they had to pray for it. Just skip it and go to Waffle House. I hear Sarah is working a double shift today..

  • bzrd

    first on the menu
    tots and pears

  • Marides48

    I wonder, will he pretend to pray as he pretended to sing the national anthem?

  • Friday

    So, any surprise that Russian hate-preachers are helping fund American hate-preachers to support Trump’s corruption and treason? And I was wondering why Tony Perkins goes so far out of his *way* to step in it about trying to defend Drumph’s complete immorality, so often. What’s his cut?

  • Nick in Pasadena

    Can anyone seriously believe that Trump prays? It’s like believing that he can touch his toes.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Is he going to speak christian ?

  • Steverino

    I have never had a prayer for breakfast. I wonder what it tastes like?
