Trump waves a Bible like a spokesmodel in front of St John’s Church, apparently he’s not going to pray there, because this was a stunt.
The police clearing action including a mounted police “charge” on the other side of Lafayette Park was designed for the photo-op.
The Episcopal bishop of DC Ã¢ÂÂ who oversees the DC church Trump just stopped at Ã¢ÂÂ tells the @washingtonpost she is “outraged” and that neither she nor the rector was asked or toldÃ¢ÂÂ¦ Ã¢ÂÂthat they would be clearing with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop..” 1/3Ã¢ÂÂ Michelle Boorstein (@mboorstein) June 2, 2020
Trump standing outside the church tonight makes it even harder for me to shake the suspicion that the attack on this church that I love was a false flag operation to set up exactly this photo op. I have not proof of that and likely never will. I'll also never shake the suspicion.
