Why Sarah HuckaSands Can Lie so Effortlessly

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted President Donald Trump to win the 2016 election, the Christian Broadcasting Network reported on Wednesday.

"I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that's why he's there," Sanders told CBN's David Brody and Jennifer Wishon, according to a transcript of the interview provided by CBN.
People who believe that they have a mandate from the Almighty are among the most dangerous people that there are. People who truly believe that, as I wrote about four days into blogging, aren't constrained by law, ethics, the Constitution, or anything else. They have a hall pass from Their Dear and Fluffy Lord, which gets them off the hook for doing what He has told them to do. So Sanders can lie and proclaim that up is down, right is wrong, day is night and she will sleep like a babe because she is doing G-d's work. Only maybe not the god she thinks.

In her mind, at any rate.

I doubt if Trump has bought into that; he's a grifter with zero morals. But if the Light in the Loafers crowd wants to believe that The Donald is the Anointed One, he'll be happy to play them for the saps that they are.

It's amazing how their imaginary, invisible sky demon always tells them exactly what they want to hear.

Well it does say in the book that god promised not to destroy the world with a flood again, so perhaps the almighty is having to get creative with his approach to world destruction?

By their reasoning, "hitler" would been their annoninted, especially if he made pro forced birth comments.
