Donald Trump’s base is largely composed of evangelical Christians and other people who don’t believe in vaccines. He’s gotten a lot of traction by hitting out against abortion and making a big show of mentioning God at every public event and rally he throws for himself. But recently, Trump took a hit when one of the most influential Christian publications, Christianity Today, posted an editorial saying that he should be impeached. Of course, Trump lashed out against their editorial board, and in general has been having a public freak out about his godliness.
Things have now escalated, as they tend to do where Trump is concerned. It’s hard to tell how Trump found this tweet from 2018, but it shows a meme of “Jesus” carrying bags with the words “Obama kicked me out, Trump invited me back.”
The tweeter accompanied this already insane image with a caption that reads, “There’s so much to be thankful for regarding our POTUS Trump! I truly believe this man was heaven sent in order to save and protect the most gracious, benevolent, and in turn, prosperous country ever. God bless him and his family.”

One year later, Trump retweeted it with the simple phrase, “Thank you!”
Thank you! https://t.co/emhA3d8Ojx

Is he just searching for tweets that mention him and God? Do they also have to attack Obama? Does he love this because it’s simple to understand?
Though Trump regularly tweets and retweets all sorts of wild things, this one seems to have broken some brains. People who believe in God and people who don’t all seem to have something to say about this absurd share:

Why would Obama kick Daniel Day-Lewis out???
Sometimes the right-wing makes no sense.

That’s what I’ve been saying. He doesn’t believe in God hes so self centered he probably thinks he’s god

In my opinion if Trump was sent by Heaven then God has either one heck of a sense of humor or he is really pissed off with the people who have to deal with him here.

Trump is gaslighting his followers and he s using Christianity as a weapon and to manipulate. Wow! He’s a dangerous man.

Funny thing about that… I think Jesus would be disgusted by Trump’s actions. Not welcoming newcomers and refugees/aslyum seekers. pic.twitter.com/LH1OJTK15C

For the record, Obama frequently mentioned God while in office, including the beloved phrase, “God bless America.” And he never tweeted anything embarrassing to the country.
