Joe Scarborough Slams Trump As The 'Antithesis’ of Everything Jesus Christ Taught

Rebel Staff

Earlier this month, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made a big show of leaving the Republican Party because of his disdain for President Donald Trump. 

On Tuesday's episode of "Morning Joe," Scarborough took his dislike of Trump a step further by claiming that he is the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

"You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.

None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of the Beatitude.”

Scarborough using Christianity to attack Trump is a low blow that is incredibly uncalled for. Trump claims to be a practicing Christian and who is Scarborough to question that? Can you imagine what would happen if Scarborough cited Islam in an attack on a Muslim president? The mainstream media would immediately slam the MSNBC host as a bigot, and his show would likely be cancelled. However, since Scarborough's sentiments were anti-Christian and anti-Trump, he has been given a free pass for this rant.

Andy Neimers, we are talking about a living faith. Christians who pray daily for a kingdom of justice, peace, and reconciliation. Their prayers will be answered.

It is presumptive in the extreme to label as “non-Christian” somebody who had not prayed “daily” for whatever reason… One could have been living a “Christian” life for years in their thoughts and deeds without praying… Prayer comes to those who believe when it strikes them as necessary… Ritual does not make for Christianity… Many elderly people return to daily prayer after having not done so for decades… That does not make them any less “Christian” in their previous years…

Atikoken Conservative has not been following these posts!

IF he had he would have seen that Donald Trump, many in the United States’ media, and many Rebel readers were not raised in Christian households.

All of them admit openly that they were raised in secular homes where prayer was no practiced. That is true for Donald Trump, most main-stream media writers, and most Rebel commenters.

The reverence of the U.S. football players’ genuflection is lost on these others.

It does seem kinda rich that a left winger quotes scripture. I’m always gonna give that whole concept an eye roll. I think it’s just a case of TDS and using any weapon at all to attack, even one that they wouldn’t usually use.

After that little “homily” and setting us all straight, I wonder if “Morning Joe” may be yearning to put on a clerical collar any day now?

The co-host “well said”, her eyes were glazing over when Scarborough was giving his impassioned leftist spin.

… Dan: Exactly.
… The Left is, and has always been, a rebellion against the Christian foundations of our civilisation.
… Trump’s agenda is to restore the foundations.

Yeah, I’ve always looked to the Fake News and other media liars for my spiritual guidance…
Wasn’t it the at the last DNC that Democrats overwhelmingly voted THREE TIMES to get rid of God?
The anti-Christ will definitely be a Democrat!
