Social media just tore into Trump after his weird, uncomfortable speech at National Day of Prayer

Today is National Prayer Day and who could possibly be better suited to help the country celebrate it than our philandering, lying, criminal, racist, treasonous president?

Donald Trump was foisted into the White House in large part through the help of the Evangelical right, whose decision to support such a man proves that their hypocrisy knows no bounds. Now, we are stuck with one of the evilest men to ever inhabit the White House and the GOP wants us all to believe that he is a deeply faithful man of God. The charade is sickening.

Trump opened up his National Prayer speech by talking about Venezuela and the current civil struggle unfolding there, which must have been a confusing entry point for an audience that showed up to discuss faith and prayer. This president is incapable of putting his political agenda aside for such much as an hour, and his choice of topic once again reveals that he doesn’t actually care about religion.

It also must be said that Trump’s fake religiosity is more sinister than mere dishonesty because he and his Republican cronies regularly use it as a weapon against marginalized groups. During his comments today at the White House, he touted the fact that his administration is finalizing new protections for “conscience rights” for healthcare professionals, teachers, students and more. All this really means is that he wants to make it easier for individuals on the religious right to discriminate against LGBTQ people. It’s as transparent as it is disgusting.

At one point, President Trump singled out a woman in the audience and made some uncomfortable and frankly bizarre remarks about her red hair, creepily telling her “You better come up here.” It seems that even during an event dedicated to prayer the president still feels comfortable engaging in borderline harassment.
