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.

Pro-Trump Lawyer Drops Huge ‘Q’ Hint, Crowd Goes Wild

WHOA…

Donald Trump may not be in office anymore, but his political power remains very firmly intact thanks to his wide web of supporters and their undying belief in his message. Among those followers are the “Q” disciples:  Americans who’ve created a community around a mysterious internet poster who has seemingly promoted Trump’s secret war against the Deep State via his cryptic breadcrumbs. Now, as No. 45 continues to contemplate his next political move, one pro-Trump lawyer is sending the Q world into a frenzy. Pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood received a standing ovation on Friday when he made “Q” gestures during a speech and appeared to link the QAnon conspiracy to a religious revival in the U.S. Wood, a prominent Georgia lawyer, was speaking at the Health and Freedom Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He told the crowd that former President Donald Trump had won the 2020 election and was still president. And then.. Wood briefly discussed his personal life and his four divorces, jokingly comparing himself to the Hebrew King David, who had nine wives, to the appreciation of the crowd. “But God forgave me, for as I’ve come to believe, God planned it,” Wood said. “He plans every detail of your life. He knows how many hairs are on your beautiful head. And he uses your sins and he uses your shortcoming to teach you so that when the time comes that he’s ready and you’ve been learning – watch out for this next move.” “He’s going to rebirth you into the spirit world and create exactly the person that he intended you to be,” Wood said while drawing a “Q” with his right index finger. “There’s your Q,” he said, drawing the letter in the air again. “Q!” The audience applauded and some began cheering in what quickly turned…
