If you don't believe in that garbage - which by all accounts he doesn't - you don't just accept a bunch of weirdos touching you in a cult-like prayer. Trump doesn't even like being touched.

But from Trump's perspective, it helps him. So yeah, it's a phony photo-op not born of genuine desire to be assisted by prayer to serve the American people.
So in other words he is a typical politician.

He has to do that. It's transactional. He knows he has NO shot without something like 80% of White Evangelicals supporting him. In 2016 people who are NOT White Evangelicals, who were an estimated 74% of voters, voted for Clinton over Trump by an estimate 60% to 34%.

He does not really give a shit about Christianity. But he gives a shit about getting re-elected.
Donk pols do that. It's transactional. Donk pols knows they have NO shot without something like 80% of blacks supporting them. In 2016 people who are NOT minorities, who were an estimated 70% of voters, voted for Trump over Clinton by an estimate 58%-37%.

Donk pols don’t really give a shit about blacks. But they give a shit about getting re-elected.

Yes I do. Trump is a simple, fairly stupid person. And he's an open book with a history of well-documented thoughts and actions. You don't need a psych degree to understand how he thinks or feels.

The mind-boggling part is how many people defend and over-explain the stupidity of his actions. He's not intelligent and he's only in it for him, but his confidence and brashness carry him. That's it.
Well, being a simple and fairly stupid person yourself, it only makes sense you can understand how he thinks and feels. :coffee: :coffee:

I guess we just need more simple and fairly stupid people to get things accomplished in our Government.

The complex and fairly bright people are lacking.

To be fair, John, you (by your own admission) don’t give a shit about Christianity either.

How hard is it to receive prayer? Fuck sakes. It isn't about Trump. It's about the people praying for him.

Even Christopher Hitchens said he was a tiny bit interested in what positive "incantations" could do for his health.

And Dems don’t give a shit about African Americans but they keep pretending to so they can keep scamming them out of their votes....

Her name was familiar. Thought she might have been a Hollywood type or a singer. I see she is famous for Jesus music and Pop, neither of which I follow.
