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!

A very sick and twisted individual is sending out letters to those who are supporters of President Trump in the state of New Hampshire, threatening to burn their homes to the ground if he happens to lose the election but doesn’t concede. Local news outlets reported that the letter has been sent to various homes in the the town that have been displaying support for Trump. Here’s what the letter said via Daily Wire: Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy. Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “”I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted. Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” “I was very taken aback. This is my home. You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town,” Milford resident Kelly told the press. Milford is a small town with a…

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

on

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…
