If hell existed, Jerry Falwell Jr. would undoubtedly go there. And his official title would be vice president in charge of shoving white-hot flaming pig iron into Jerry Falwell Sr.’s eternally dilating orifices.
Because he’s made me feel sympathy for Jefferson Fucking Beauregard Focking Sessions the Shart-Gargling Third.
Apparently, evangelicals have lost faith in Sessions because, well, he follows the rule of law and won’t let Bizarro Jesus unilaterally shut down Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Jerry Falwell Jr., a top conservative religious leader, said Monday he urged President Donald Trump to fire Jeff Sessions over his handling of investigations into Russian election meddling, saying the attorney general has lost evangelicals' support.
“He really is not on the president’s team, never was,” Falwell, the president of Liberty University, said of Sessions. “He’s wanted to be attorney general for many, many years. I have a feeling he took a gamble and supported the president because he knew he would reward loyalty.”
Yeah, so all we need is more people telling Trump he can do whatever he wants because God picked him. That’s really helpful. The guy already acts like an 8-year-old Egyptian pharaoh with an out-of-control mead habit.
Falwell said he has urged the president to fire Sessions and told POLITICO he plans to bring up the subject again Monday evening at a small gathering with Trump and the first lady. Later, Falwell and dozens of other faith leaders will attend a formal White House dinner celebrating the evangelical community.
In forsaking Sessions, faith leaders are turning on one of their own, a man who for decades fought in the political trenches for conservative Christian causes. As a senator from Alabama, Sessions was one of the first Republicans to endorse Trump’s long-shot presidential campaign, taking heat from his party in return.
But he has angered Trump loyalists more recently because the Justice Department has not declassified all materials sought by Republicans in regards to the Russia investigation. The president believes Sessions, who recused himself from the Russia probe because of his involvement in the 2016 campaign, has failed to rein in a probe that Trump claims is driven by politics.
“There’s growing disillusionment in the conservative faith-based community” with Sessions, said Gary Bauer, president of American Values, an educational non-profit group.
It’s nice to see that conservative evangelicals will eat their own and renounce all their values in order to worship a fluorescent sex demon who rejects literally everything they stand for.
Way to go, evangelicals. You’re making this country unlivable, one barmy anti-Christ at a time.
