Is Trump Possessed by Satan?

Spreading hate has long been Beezlebub’s metier

DJT isn’t the first evil president, and he won’t be the last. But he’s the first one I’ve seen in my 64-year lifespan. We’ve had clueless presidents (picture George W Bush on the aircraft carrier proclaiming the end of the Iraq war), we’ve had lawless ones (Richard “not a crook” Nixon), we’ve had indecent (Bill Clinton) and unfaithful ones (JFK). But in my recollection, we’ve never had one that spread the hate on so thick he needed a trowel.

He hates immigrants, Mexicans, women, Obama, the media, liberals, Democrats, John McCain, CNN, the New York Times, Hillary, Elizabeth Warren, Muslims, ex-staffers, environmentalists, all the women who accuse him of sexual assault, and all the people interested in seeing his tax returns…

Is there anyone who escapes Twitler’s hate? Oh, yeah. Alex Jones — who tormented the parents of children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School with false flag conspiracy claims in order to make money selling diet powder; and Kim Jong Un, who starves and brainwashes his people, executed his uncle, ordered the assassination of his half-brother, and threatens to nuke the U.S.

Nice friends.

Trump's recent tweets are a good example of Satanic possession, wrapping misogyny, racism, and fascism into one putrid package when he suggests “The Squad” — four freshmen congresswomen of color — “go back” to the countries they came from (three were born in the U.S.).

You don’t have to believe in Satan to see that DJT is imbued with his spirit. If there’s one thing that Muslims, Christians, and Jews can agree on, it’s the nature of Satan, and DJ fits the description to a T.

Satan, also known as the Devil, is an entity in the Abrahamic religions that seduces humans into sin or falsehood,” according to Wikipedia.

I think we all can agree that Twitler is an expert at seducing humans into sin. Take the passel of formerly soul-bearing Republicans who are turning their heads the other way as T takes children from their parents, locks them in cages, and lets them die in custody without shame or remorse. Or the crowds he whips into a hateful furor at every rally he leads, encouraging them to shout slogans like “Build a wall — kill them all” and “Trump that bitch.”

And falsehoods? He’s the all-time record holder, with more than 10,000 falsehoods tallied by the Washington Post over a three-year period. He lies so often it exhausts a full-time staff of three lie-trackers just to keep up.

So we know what he is. We know how he’s possessed. The question now is, how do we cast the demon out?

As odious as it is, I’m going to try praying for him. Because as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Imagine how different our world would be today if Twitler had happiness, health, peace, or joy in his life. If he had any of that, even in small portions, he wouldn’t be dragging us so vigorously to the gates of hell.
