3. The epitome of ignorance,

from heathens like that is when they mock the essence and meaning of their own religion without even a clue as to what they are doing. And, yes, in this case it is possibly a faux identification with it for practical reasons. The fox is the sheep manager.

Forgive them for they know not what they do? I'll say.

do we celebrate on the day he dies, or do we celebrate three days later when he doesn't come back?

8. Twitter is having fun with this:

Molly Jong-Fast ✔@MollyJongFast

I remember this from my favorite book of the Bible “Jesus loved the hush money payments."

And who could forget the book of “ Jesus ran a fake university”

And don’t forget the book of “Jesus paintings himself orange before he goes on his reality television program.”

17. I wonder if he is being ridiculous on purpose ?

I don't know - it's such a goofy and poorly thought out argument. Regardless, the point is that if you put forward the idea that any whistleblower should be forced to face the person they accuse, than you basically kneecap the whistleblower protections. That works as long as Republicanoids have the white house - but they probably aren't going to have them forever.

18. Did Jesus ever brag about "grabbing them by the p***y"?

I'm not very religious, but I never heard Jesus say that. Does someone have a biblical reference on this?

20. Is crucifixion a legal punishment for presidential bribery?

I mean after all, rethugs wanted to crucify Bill Clinton for consensual oral sex......

Someone please tell this rethug it's Christmas, not Easter........

Where are all those damned wise men now that we really need them.......

22. No, you can't legally crucify a president.

 

Once he leaves office, it might be okay. This is just one of those Justice Department memos that only protects Republican presidents.

26. I was being quite facetious......

to amplify the absurdity of these Republican's wild and inappropriate statements.

It certainly appears they're getting desperate and may call in exorcists and snake handlers next...

27. They'll get more than that!

 

I saw (on a very questionable site) that off-planet aliens might be helping them. Trump has reasons for pushing that Space Force of his. He wants to make America safe again to believe in flying saucer science fiction movies from the 1950's.

24. I'd like to point out A) The president refused to allow witnesses B) The trial is in the senate

C) There was a defense lawyer at the hearing in the house cross examine witnesses (he did a bad job) D) It's the GOP senators talking about refusing to allow witnesses for the trial.

Besides that, he makes a great point about something, whatever it was.
