I swear I can't keep up.
Now the Pope is feuding with the leading republican candidate for president.
The Pope says that trump's behavior, as it relates to the Mexican border, is not a Christian.
Now if you happen to be a Catholic who also happens to be a trump supporter, what do you do?
Do you support the leader of your church? Or do you support the man you want to lead the country?
"After the pontiff’s remarkable contention that Mr. Trump “is not Christian” in proposing deportations and a wall with Mexico, the candidate said Francis’ criticisms were “disgraceful” and “unbelievable,” and he contended that the Mexican government had hoodwinked the pope into criticizing him."
If you are standing next to trump, now might be a good time to step away. You don't want that lightening strike to hit you.
Then there was Ted cruz calling the president "faithless". This, after he and his campaign fraudulently and nefariously photoshopped the picture of his opponent in a campaign ad. Man this guy has some serious cujones. I am not sure how he thought that he could get away with doing a silly photoshop from a stock photo in this Internet age. *[See pic above]
Anyway, such is life in politics, the sleazy people will do anything to win. And this guy has the nerve to rip the president's morals.
But things are getting down and dirty in the republican primaries (the dem primary as well), and trump and cruz are going at it, hard.
Cruz is peddling the narrative that trump is a secret liberal to the base, and trump thinks that cruz is a lying duplicitous scumbag. (Ok, he didn't actually say scumbag, but you get the point)
Of course this could all be because there is a new national poll showing that cruz is actually beating trump. Fortunately for trump, it is the only one, and the word among pollsters is that it is an outlier. We will see.
I just had a scary thought: What if trump wins and chooses cruz as his running mate? Don't laugh. Crazier things have happened. Did you think, for instance, that a self-promoting game show host who has been named in almost 170 federal lawsuits would be on the verge of being the GOP nominee for president?
