Video: Christian Crazy Watch — Mike Pompeo Says Trump Possibly Sent by God to Help Jews
Fundamentalist lunacy in high positions is a frightening reality.
SECRETARY of State Mike Pompeo recently suggested that President Donald Trump may have been “sent by God to protect Israel.”
Asked in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) whether he thought “President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace,” Pompeo, a former CIA director, said: “As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible.”
“Queen Esther” is a reference to the story behind the Jewish Purim holiday, in which a Jewish woman prostitutes herself to influence a Persian king to kill his own people and thereby help Jews — and to the present-day warmongering against Iran by Israel.
Pompeo added that with “the work that our administration’s done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state, remains,” he is “confident that the Lord is at work here.”
Pompeo was in Jerusalem, where he accompanied Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the Western Wall, where he donned a yarmulke and performed Jewish rituals.
CBN is headed by televangelist “Crazy Pat” Robertson, who recently stated on his long-running 700 Club television program, “Trump has been a fantastic president for the faith community. In fact God told me last night that Donald Trump’s name has been written in the Book of Life. He’s guaranteed a place in heaven. In fact, he’ll also be a real estate mogul in heaven and have his own Trump Towers.”
Robertson also said Christians were happy about Trump’s decisions on Israel such as moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. Fundamentalist Christians have compared Trump to King Cyrus, the Persian king who succumbed to the wiles of Esther and betrayed his own people.
