Quote# 124586

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson wondered if President Obama and other Democrats may have participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down President Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn, who resigned on Monday over his communications with Russia’s U.S. ambassador.

While Flynn and other White House officials said that the two did not talk about U.S. sanctions against Russia before Trump’s inauguration, such statements conflicted with “reports from U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies that routinely monitor the communications of Russian diplomats.”

Robertson, however, wrongly suggested that U.S. intelligence agencies were specifically monitoring Flynn, not the ambassador, and then warned of a larger plot involving Democrats, liberal government officials and members of the media that he believes could be working to take Flynn down and damage the Trump administration.

Referring to Psalm 2:2, “The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed,” Robertson said that those challenging Trump are really fighting against God:

"I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America. These other people have been trying to destroy America. These left-wingers and so-called progressives are trying to destroy the country that we love and take away the freedoms they love. They want collectivism. They want socialism. What we’re looking at is free markets and freedom from this terrible, overarching bureaucracy. They want to fight as much as they can but I think the good news is the Bible says, 'He that sits in the heavens will laugh them to scorn,' and I think that Trump’s someone on his side that is a lot more powerful than the media."

If the Lord's plan for America involves Trump then the Lord has lost the plot; or maybe he's just got it in for you. It does your country (I'm a Brit) no good to be led by a man so unstable, so wilfully ignorant, so indifferent to truth. Fortunately the world at large realises that the US made a catastrophic mistake in electing him and will do its best to humour him until either his term is up or - which I am beginning to fear - he has some sort of psychotic breakdown. Each successive press conference gets more and more bizarre. The "Christian" right will, with any luck, pay a heavy price for their support of this delusional liar.

Pat, you've outlived your mind by a number of years already. If I were religious, I'd be really offended that you conflate Trump with god. As it is, I just snicker quietly and roll my eyes.

Trump is "God's anointed" now? What - the Devil too damned busy that God had to look even lower for help?

By equating Trump with the Lord's anointed, if you look at the Hebrew, Robertson is literally calling Trump a messiah.

"....Pat Robertson wondered if President Obama and other Democrats may have participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down President Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn,....".

No, Patty-cakes, the only person on the US side that participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down Michael Flynn was.....Michael Flynn.

Now go away, and stop bothering the adults.

So let me get this totally straight



Trump is from god
Trump is an unrepentant sinner
Yet Christian conservatives can't get enough of him
While telling everyone else they need to repent



Now do these guys know what hypocrisy is? Do they know what Jesus said about hypocrites? They are Pharisees.

And AGAIN the 'party of responsibility' blames everybody else for their actions.

It's pathetic.

He's been out of office for a month, and it's still Obama's fault.

Funny how they remember the bit about leaders being leaders because of God's will when it's their leader in charge. Either that, or Pat here thinks Trump is God or at least a direct divine instrument.

Either way, you sir, are a dumbass, and always have been. Even back in my Republican days, you seemed like a BS artist. May people continue changing the channel whenever your boring tripe airs.

@Doubting Thomas

Dude, until the next Democrat is elected, everything that goes wrong will be Obama's fault in their eyes. Everything. No exceptions. The team who's representative is currently in charge tends to blame the last leader of the other team for everything. Only difference is Team Blue eventually relents.

Obama seems happy no longer being president.

What about the challenges against Reagan? How did that turn out?

Wouldn't surprise me if the "700 Club" programmes shown on TBNUK were several years old; they're certainly heavily edited for broadcast on that British-based Christian channel.

Not one iota of Patty-boy's BS.

Say hello to OFCOM, Pat: no 'Opinions' allowed.

It's certainly why no BS by Donald Fart is allowed. Faux News UK? It'd have to be simultaneously anti-Fart as well as pro-: or you'd only be allowed to be completely neutral.

It's either that, or just you - as per those on a potential Faux News UK - just sitting there in silence.

"700 Club": the British version. Just a taste of what would happen if certain 'organisations' in the US were to receive visits from the IRS...!

And what about between 2008-2016: or did Romans 13:1-5 disappear from your Bibles in those eight years, o fundies?

Pat Robertson wondered if President Obama


Former president Obama. You guys won. Get used to it.

It only counts when they want it to count. Same as everything else



@pyro


Do you think they're tired of winning yet? ;)

Why won't this wizened colostomy bag DIE?! For fucks sake Pat, get on with it.

The Orange Anus doesn't need any assistance in taking down his farce of an administration; he's doing a bang up job on his own. I hope all the republican filth that voted for him & the whiny purity bitches on the left that sat home & pouted about being denied their unicorn shitting candidate named Bernie are happy with they've done. Thanks a lot!

Flynn gets caught handing the U.S. over to Putin
(that's Trump's job) so Trump throws him under the bus.
Of course, this is Obama dissing Gawd, and all his fault.

Meeeh

No, this White House does not need external help to be brought down - it manages that spectacularly itself, thank you very much!

Robertson made much of his money from Republican Government for 'aid to Africa' which he bought diamond mines and cargo planes for the mines. There's a great big RW cabal out there and he's one of it's older members.

if President Obama and other Democrats may have participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down President Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn


During my daily afternoon chat with Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, He told me He thinks Trump is a complete turd and that He will be doing everything He can to bring Trump down, this side of sending down lightning bolts.

Flynn was a first step. And we all know, the Lord works in mysterious ways. I'm really glad he gives me a daily briefing so I know what's going on.

Well, that, plus the issues Team Blue blame Team Red for tend to be actual issues, whereas Team Red likes to blame Team Blue for made up shit. Seriously, how exactly did Obama "mess up the United States"? Alternative facts at their finest.

Trump is apparently God's plan for America and the world. Are you people purposefully trying to make Satan look like the good guy?
