Trump is like God

He wants daily praise. He demands total loyalty. He wants constant thanks for everything he does. He needs you to appreciate all the good things he does. You need to have faith that everything he does is good, and investigating to determine the truth must be forbidden. He will help you, if you beg him first. There can be no other people that know more or have better ideas than him. Only he can save us.

So much like God.

5. Unlike

which other one.

And it begs the question of this being the behavior of the "real God" too.

9. The Biblical God is occasionally described as merciful.

Trump, not so much. He's more like the other guy.

13. The Bibilcal God

is often a son of a bitch, especially in the OT.
But it was a comparative, not interchangeable.

10. I said politician, not POTUS.

And I said "self-image" which doesn't refer to specific actions taken by a POTUS.

Is that clearer?

11. I don't remember any

Governor or Senator doing this.
Corrupt, criminal, incompetent, stupid, yes. Asking to be bribed, yes. But demanding public praise before helping dying people? Who did that?

12. Like I said, "self-image." I never stated that any other politician has

"demanded public praise before helping dying people."

Is that clearer?

18. More than one has stated that they are our "only hope"

and smears anyone who disagrees with them on anything, no matter how small, as utterly wrong and misguided at best, and deeply corrupt and nefarious at worst.

They direct the same accusation at any member of the free press that dares fact check them and find mistakes, or ask a followup question...

They will refuse to endorse anyone who doesn't flatter them, and require absolute fealty as the price and only qualification for that endorsement.

Neither of them WILL help you...they only imply that they will.

20. Reminds me of the Goebbels quote:

"Hitler is lonely.
So is God.
Hitler is like God."

He actually said this.
