Does the short-fingered vulgarian even listen to himself?

The pious and learned Christian, Donald "Two Corinthians" Trump, got all tizzied up after Pope Francis criticized him and chided his ridiculous proposal to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it.

The thin-skinned, short-fingered vulgarian fired back at Pope Francis with this melange of pettiness, pomposity, and putrescence:

The Trumper:

 "If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows it ISIS' ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president. Because this would not have happened if ISIS has been eradicated..."

"I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President. No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith."

(The Trumper offers no evidence for his claim that Christianity is being attacked and weakened by President Obama.  It's pure horseshit; and as I've stated before, his supporters slurp it up and swallow it.)

"No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith."

Said the pompous jackass who said this about Kindly Doctor Carson a few months ago:

Questioning Ben Carson's faith:

Presbyterian is "down the middle of the road folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh-day Adventist, I don't know about. I just don't know about," he said about Carson's faith, implying that Seventh-day Adventists are weird. 

Questioning Ted Cruz's faith:

With Ted Cruz surging in Iowa and some national polls, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump took a jab at the Texas Senator's faith, saying, "not a lot of Evangelicals come out of Cuba."  Which implies that Cruz, who heritage is Cuban, couldn't possibly be a "real" Evangelical, because, Cuba!

Questioning President Obama's Christian faith:

 "He doesn't have a birth certificate. He may have one, but there's something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim," Trump told Fox News in 2011. "I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that."

Trump is a petulant little weasel who needs to pick up his marbles and go home.

Radical, here's Pm Carpenter's take on the Pope/Trump circus:

Trump, the pope, and hayseed hypocrisy


CNN is airing what I gather are representative interviews of Trump supporters, many of whom, according to polling, are right-wing evangelicals. Their opinion of the pope's "not a Christian" remark? Religion should stay out of politics, they say.

And not one of them betrayed even the faintest bit of hilarious hypocrisy.

Classic. Absolutely classic.

"Religion should stay out of politics???" LOL!

Cruz and his restoring America to Biblical law? OMG! Are these people like Trump? They don't even listen to themselves?

In a word, NOPE.

Donald Trump has attacked women, African-Americans, the disabled, Muslims, Mexicans, and now the Pope. At this rate, the only people who be left to vote for Trump are the angry white conservative bigots who currently support him.​

So a bunch of atheists are supporting the Pope. In this country there is no preaching from the pulpit and I guess you are alright with that.
How many politicians say things that aren't true but just wishful thinking. Lower healthcare premiums by $2,500, keep your doctor, unify the country, a big right wing conspiracy, close Gitmo and proof of WMD's.

Trump puts a new spin on being bombastic but he dominates the media and even the blogs who hate him. I hope he slithers away but that may not happen soon.

(Think Progress) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) doesn’t think President Obama should nominate a Supreme Court justice to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat because he believes the American people “should have a voice.” Of course, voters weighed in by reelecting Obama in 2012. But according to new polling out today, they haven’t changed their mind.

A new poll from Rasmussen Reports, which is known to lean a bit conservative in its results, finds that voters would prefer Obama to fill the vacancy rather than waiting until after the next presidential election.

A bunch of atheists are not "supporting the Pope." They are pointing out Trump's hilarious hypocrisy in protesting what the Pope said, when the Trumper has called into question other people's faith. He's a blowhard and the perfect representative of today's TeaPublican Party.

The rest of you comment is the usual troll b.s. Christian clergy routinely preach politics from the pulpit. Apparently you've forgotten the numerous examples.

Most of Trump's supporters likely think Pope Frank is the anti-Christ anyway. So, this can only help him.

The loonies on the frightwing blogs question Obama's faith all the time. They believe he's a secret Muslim. 29% of the American people believe Obama is a Muslim thanks to FUX News
and the idiots who watch it. The Pope is the leader of millions and millions of Catholics and Trump is the leader of building gambling casinos.

There are 24 Republican Senators up for election or retiring and 10 seated Democratic Senators. Presidential years favor Democratic turnout. There is no guarantee that the next president will be Repub. Waiting for the next president to nominate and Senate confirmation of the Supreme may not be in the best interest of the conservatives. Further babble about the appointment may hurt the Republican party. To say nothing of opportunity for the TeaCandydates to say incredibly dumb shit stuff. Boy, politics....most fun you can have while still wearing clothes!!!

oh, I met the Pope!!! He had some really 'Holy' reefer.

The American people are not with the Goopers on the issue of nominating a replacement for Scalia. A majority of Americans want the slot filled. Another issue where the Goopers are out of sync with the rest of the country.

That's because the Pope said all atheists who do 'good works' will be saved. So tell me, skud. Have you done anything decent lately? If not, then you're just $h#t outa luck.
