President Donald Trump, who has spent most of his Sunday ranting on Twitter, attempted to woo Christian voters by firing off a biblical-sounding proclamation of “a great and powerful Plague” afflicting the country. His tweet left the internet wondering if he wrote it himself or asked one of his advisors who knows more words to write for him.
“…And then came a Plague, a great and powerful Plague, and the World was never to be the same again!Trump wrote on Twitter. “But America rose from this death and destruction, always remembering its many lost souls, and the lost souls all over the World, and became greater than ever before!” he proclaimed.
Many people were baffled by Trump’s bizarre declaration.
“Who’s writing these for you now…a third grader?” former White Press Secretary Joe Lockhart wrote in response.
Then everyone piled on. Take a look at some of the reactions below:
So you quote scripture when you try to make yourself look good?
You unrepentant, heretical, fake Christian, bigot.
Stop bastardizing scripture to manipulate people.
You’re trash. https://t.co/j5UW0bwT9V

That makes sense. It’s certainly not our illiterate President – it’s too coherent.

BULLSHIT. The “plague” came & YOU called it a DEMOCRAT HOAX. You mocked it. You said it was just like the flu. You said 15 cases would soon go to zero. You said it’d ‘miraculously be gone by April’. You said everyone could be tested. You LIED. And You FAILED. #Trump #CoronaVirus

My daughter asked me if he's a mass murderer. I said he most certainly is.
