You ever been cut off in traffic and too startled and pissed off to remember where the horn is and how it works?

Pretty sure God was too pissed off and so upset that He forgot where the Smite button was or knocked over His basket of thunderbolts and by the time He recovered it was too late.

Trump has literally crossed the road (the least he could literally do) to waive literally WHAT LOOKS LIKE A BIBLE BUT PROBABLY WASN'T ONE, in front of a Church while gassing American citizens.

You know what movie Trump would be if he were a movie?

G-a-s-sssssss!, MothraFlicker!

OK, Boomer! Enough LSD in the American Water Supply Already!

Now is the time for every good person to come to the aid of your country. I for my part, can only double my efforts, double my fun.

WRIGLEY'S SPEARMENT GUM!

Bonus Points to Trump:  It was not his Church. Trump was raised a Presbyterian Supralapsarian Calvinist. St. John is Episcopollian, the essence of American national propriety, like the Church of England, only more liberal, democratic, and with America instead of England.

Irony points to Trump:

THE BEAST 666 POSING AS YOUR SAVIOUR IN FRONT OF TEAR GAS AND THE CHURCH OF SAINT JOHN, LIKE, YOU KNOW, SAINT JOHN OF PATMOS, THE GUY WHO WROTE THE BOOK OF THE REVELATION OF SAINT JOHN THE DIVINE.

After the feeling of abhorrence had passed when I watched him pose for that photo, it occurred to me how much effort he was making to get a meaningful picture of him looking presidential, and it didn't even work. The man can't take a decent picture.

But Pete Souza could stand off to the side and snap a photo at nearly any moment and Obama looked amazing, even when he wasnt the focal point of the photo.

Even when he tries his hardest to look like he belongs in charge, he can't hold a candle to Obama.

From your link: The president's movement surprised nearly everyone, as he intended, including law enforcement. The Washington police chief said he was notified only moments beforehand. Park Police commanders on the scene were as surprised as everyone else to see the president in the park.

That's not better. The Attorney General gave an order to clear the park, according to that article. They had all day to "expand their security perimeter." They could have started early that morning and had the thing fenced off by the time of the photo op.

But like the opening credits to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, they had it expanded at the last minute and at great expense.

Perhaps tantrum motivated. I still can't get over some guy I saw on Twitter who was like, "Look, you gotta understand, I know all about Secret Service procedure, they had to do it because this is SOP, they had no choice."

Huh, I thought he looked like he was pouting because he had to waddle across the street and hold up a bible.  I can kind of see it now.  If that's supposed to be stern, it's not very convincing.

And because God is a celestial being, a second's worth of reaction time for him could be eons for mortals like us. Makes sense.

Damn. You, sir, seem to have a talent for bringing up interesting but often "WTF?" shiat that I didn't know. Thank you. I think.

This reminds me of the efforts by theologians to work out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

Calvinists are clinically insane.

It is sad that Supralapsarian is an actual farking word with actual farking meaning to pointy headed morons..

"Finally, Trump revealed his true reason for the mission: a photo op with his all-white advisers. Now, reportedly, the reason Trump wanted this meaningless photo - because 'he was upset by coverage of the fact that he had been rushed to the underground bunker on Friday night.' Not sure if he thought that one through. [as Trump]'Oh, they think I'm a coward, do they? I'll show them. Quick, go assault a bunch of peaceful protesters. Daddy's gotta frown in front of a church and hold a Bible like a fly swatter.'" - STEPHEN COLBERT

This.

I saw this on a couple of Facebook posts yesterday, well before George's midnight-post time.  He may have been simply re-posting so I don't think there's any need for outrage for joke-stealing though.  It's not like he said "Hey...here's a joke that I thought up all by myself."
