Throughout Donald Trump’s campaign I have tried imploring people to focus a little less on the outlandish things he says, and instead focus on the very serious reality that he’s woefully unqualified and unfit to be this nation’s president.
I’m not talking about someone like Paul Ryan who, while I disagree with him on damn near everything, at least knows how government works and what being the president entails. There’s a difference between not wanting someone to be president because I disagree with their policy stances (though that also does pertain to Trump), and not wanting someone to be president because they’re not remotely qualified to perform one of the most difficult jobs on the planet.
Donald Trump is nothing but a caricature of a presidential candidate. He’s a conservative blog’s comment section sprung to life who somehow managed to win a major political party’s nomination by doing nothing more than lying through his teeth and saying whatever he felt conservative voters were gullible enough to believe.
A great example of this is shown in who Trump picked as his apparent “Christian liaison” – whatever the hell that even means.
Meet Frank Amedia, a self-proclaimed “apostle” and “prophet” who claims he once personally stopped a tsunami:
I stood at the edge of my bed and I said, ‘In the name of Jesus, I declare that tsunami to stop now.’ And I specifically said, ‘I declare those waters to recede,’ and I said, ‘Father, that is my child, I am your child, I’m coming to you now and asking you to preserve her.’ Apostle, it was seen by 400 people on a cliff. It was on YouTube, it was actually on the news that that tsunami stopped 200 feet off of shore. Even after having sucked the waters in, it churned and it went on and did devastation in the next island.
Again, Donald Trump – the individual who’s going to be the presidential candidate for one of our nation’s two largest political parties – picked this guy as his official “Christian liaison.”
He also believes that AIDS is a result of “unnatural sex,” apparently fancies himself a bit of a “faith healer” and said the massive earthquake that devastated Haiti was a result of the “curve of Voodoo.”
Oh, and he’s also been involved in an incident where he tried to bribe a prosecutor to protect a friend of his who owned a car dealership and was caught rolling back odometers.
To summarize, Frank Amedia is either:
- Someone who’s absolutely batsh*t crazy who actually believes he can heal people and stop tsunamis. – or –
- He’s a blatant con man who uses religion as a way to use and manipulate people.
Personally, I’m going with the second option.
Be that as it may, this is someone who’s part of Donald Trump’s campaign – which means he represents the presidential campaign of the candidate for the Republican party.
Or to put it another way: Donald Trump has as one of his advisors and advocates a “Christian liaison” who believes he can stop tsunamis, cure diseases, considers himself a prophet and once tried to bribe a prosecutor to protect a scam artist who was screwing over their customers.
This makes him the “perfect” person to be a part of one of the most ridiculous presidential campaigns in U.S. history.
