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



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?



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


Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.



In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.



The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at:
