Just when one thinks this administration can’t get any crazier, it does.
Paula White is Trump’s personal pastor and spiritual advisor. Now she is exhorting her flock to send her $229 each to get guidance, and some holy oil, to defeat the “enemies”.
She says it is so written in the Bible. The amount and the mandate of sorts is “…in accordance with” 1 Chronicles 22:9 in the Bible. The verse speaks about peace and rest from enemies.”
22:9 equals $229.00. Interesting since the dollar did not exist until thousands of years later. But a minor point. Oh, if you are too poor, you can send $31.00, which is based on adding the digits in 22:9. Slick and easy.
Again, this is the spiritual advisor of the president of the United States.
Now it may seem natural that con artists attract each other. Trump U comes to mind. Yet this scheme seems so, well, unseemly at best and just plain nuts at less than best.
This scam involves belief in a higher power to succeed, of course. Could this not fulfill the “high crimes” part of impeachment?
I guess only if Trump were to get his cut from the deal.
Will Trump throw this “fallen pastor” under the bus. “Never heard of her” might be coming soon.
Oh, did I say she is the personal pastor and spiritual advisor to the president?
