Ex-GOP Lawmaker Just Compared Trump To God And Got Torched For It
Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) was recorded saying during a recent radio interview that Donald Trump is the most “Godly” president in U.S. history.
According to Right Wing Watch, Bachmann said:
“In my lifetime, I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump. We will, in all likelihood, never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes.”

But Bachmann’s comments didn’t go unnoticed. Twitter users called her out for putting a person like Trump in such a high pedestal.
Here’s how Twitter users responded:
I mean, sure, if your most sacred religious text is The Book of Debbie Does Dallas…

I’d say Michelle Bachmann’s brain is broken but that presumes a mythological past in which she was sane.

It would be interesting to see how she determined this. But also highlights the need for better mental health services in this country.

What on earth is she talking about?

Michele is either off her meds or has overdosed on one or more of them. Never in my 67 years have I heard or seen so many blatantly idiotic statements from so many people. Just can’t wrap my head around their devotion to and defense of this man.
