Trump Weighs in on Catholic Abuse Scandal. The Media Won’t Know What to Say.

Published

on

The religious world has been rocked by the revelation that not only were thousands of cases of abuse systematically covered up by the Catholic church, but that the Pope himself has found himself at the center of it.

Pope Francis is by far the most progressive Pope the church has had, and so, the #MeToo media has stunningly defended his most likely knowing re-appointment of serial abuser Cardinal Theodore McCarrick into the clergy after Pope Benedict had placed him in solitude.

This is, of course, because while the media would normally be all over any excuse to paint people of faith as hypocrites, Pope Francis cares about climate change and has some radically liberal (for a Pope) things about homosexuality, so who cares if he may have covered-up the crimes of a serial abuser and put him back into contact with parishioners, right?

It will be interesting to see what the reaction is, however, now that Trump has commented on the scandal, especially considering his comments have been pretty level-headed.

Here’s what he said, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation:

President Donald Trump expressed sadness over the ongoing sexual abuse scandal roiling the Catholic Church and tacitly defended the Pope’s handling of the crisis, in an exclusive Oval Office interview with The Daily Caller.

“It’s so sad to watch,” Trump said when asked for his thoughts on the issue, lamenting “the numbers, the length of time, you know, going back 70 years, I think it’s having a really negative impact on the Catholic Church. … “To me it’s one of the sadder stories ’cause I respect so much the Catholic Church. And to me it’s a very sad story.”

It appears that Trump does not share the anger that many on the right have towards the Pope for his possible role in covering up McCarrick’s crimes, however:

The president however defended the Pope’s handling of the crisis saying “the Pope is handling it, I guess the best anyone can handle it. How is he going to handle it?” and demurred on whether the Church leadership in the U.S. should resign over the scandal.

“I’m surprised at McCarrick, everyone knew him and so incredible to see these things. It’s devastating for the Catholic Church.”

Now, I would imagine, the media would find themselves in a pickle.

You see, were they willing to criticize the Pope, here would be a perfect opportunity to attack Trump for going so easy on supposed child molesters. But they love the Pope…so whatever shall they do?

Actually endeavor to practice reliable and unbiased journalism?

Bahaha.

Doubtful.

So far, unsurprisingly, his comments have received very little attention in the mainstream media.

Save conservative media!

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1353516978544250882?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1353516978544250882%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frichard-grenell-trump-does-want-to-run-again-in-2024-video%2F President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you.
