New Painting by Trump Cultist Has the Internet Roaring with Laughter
Want to know why Trump has the evangelical vote locked up despite being a foul-mouthed, money-obsessed, p*ssy grabbing, man that they wouldn’t allow alone with their daughters? Because evangelicals are most comfortable when being told what to do, led by a “strong” and vengeful force. They also want to deify their leaders. They are biblical in their thinking even in an age where humanity is interfacing more and more with a networked silicon mind. The idealize the “old days” no matter how old they might have been – the Reagan years, the 50s, the old south, the revolutionary war, the pilgrims, Columbus, and on and on, the whitewashed history.
So it’s not really a surprise that we see something like this. It is a combination of all the above, worshiping old idealized times, and deifying Trump – the “Chosen one,” who gets to be vengeful. It’s always a wrathful deity, Jesus’s real message is “whitewashed,” out, too. Remarkably, the real Jesus would probably be throwing tables over in the streets of Washington, furious.

Now that is laughable. John Kennedy, Democrat, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” One of his most famous quotes, another less famous but more important: “The United States seeks a world where the weak are safe and the strong are just.” Yeah, he would love Trump, not.
And there is Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, two people who would’ve despised Trump with every fiber of their being.
Washington, the man who said “No” to being a king, the man who stepped down after two terms, the man who believed that the Constitution rose above any man?
We could literally go all day, around the room.
Let’s look at what some others said:
do you have any idea just how ridiculous this is

Maybe, but McNaughton may know money when he sees it, too. For all we know, McNaughton, like so many others, know that Trump is the biggest moron on earth, but are laughing all the way to the bank.
Wait, is that Robert E. Lee?

I cannot tell, but why not?

I mean, seriously, do you honestly think even one of those American heroes would support this ridiculous, petty, ignorant, racist, destructive fool? This heathen? This Russian asset? This guy who cages babies & gasses moms & clergy? The guy who literally steals taxpayer dollars? pic.twitter.com/JIRy5LLUfg

Here is the attempt to name them all, from a Trumper:
So far I’ve got:
Two others I could make out … the tall blonde on the right back and the short bearded guy in back.

That is laughable. MLK? Frederick Douglas? Lincoln? Jefferson – the man who was the main author of the constitution, the intellectual whose library was dedicated to start the library of congress, the president who put the country first and bought the Mississippi drainage? Doubling the size of the country? America’s greatest architect? He is going to love a man who’s never read a book?
Again, we could go on and on. But there’s no point.
The painting is simply so perfectly symbolic of Trump worship and denial of reality.
