Purveyor of Truth
Michelle Bachmann, who is Donald J. Trump's evangelical adviser as well as a former Minnesota Congresswomen has recently proclaimed that Trump was picked by God to be the GOP nominee for president. According to Bachmann God raised The Donald up to win the general election. Bachmann, pointing to the Book of Daniel stated that it teaches "us" that the most high God lifts up who He will and takes down who he will.
Contemplating Bachmann's words must be difficult for the Evangelicals and other devout Christians who are considering whether or not to vote for Trump in November. For the Christians that have been paying close attention to Donald Trump's many xenophobic, misogynistic, sometimes racist, and often extreme nationalistic comments they must be wondering why God would lift such a person up. Instead of say someone who is more tolerant and loving of all of God's people. Just sayin...
Anyway here is the article published in THE HILL.
Former Minnesota Rep. and evangelical adviser to Donald Trump Michele Bachmann said that the GOP nominee was "raised up" by God to win in the general election.
“This is one thing I know from the book of Daniel, the bottom line of the book of Daniel is this: it teaches us that the most high God lifts up who He will and takes down who he will," she said in an interview with "The Brody File" that was released on Tuesday.
"I actually supported Ted Cruz. I thought he was fabulous but I also see that at the end of the day God raised up, I believe, Donald Trump, who was going to be the nominee in this election. I don’t think God sits things out. He’s a sovereign God. Donald Trump became our nominee," Bachmann continued in the interview, which was conducted on Friday.
"I think it’s very likely that in the day that we live in, that Donald Trump is the only individual who could win in a general election of the 17 who ran. Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t know but I do know that the Bible is true and that Daniel teaches the most high God which is one of God’s names is the one who lifts up who he will and takes down who He will."
Bachmann also lauded Trump's advisers, who she says are "solid as a rock" when it comes to upholding orthodox Christian values, unlike people surrounding Democrat Hillary Clinton.
"If you look at Barack Obama by contrast, if you look at Hillary Clinton by contrast, tell me where the strong people of orthodox Christian faith or orthodox Jewish faith who believe that the Bible is true, who believe that God is who He says who He is ... I don't know of any. Maybe [Clinton] has some, but I don't know of any."
Trump has made a strong push to rally evangelical conservatives behind him, after some speculation that he might struggle with the demographic earlier this year.
A Pew Research Center poll published in July found that 78 percent of white evangelical voters are likely to support Trump over Clinton come Nov. 8.
The cognitive dissonance within of the 78% must be great.
Michelle Bachmann, doubling down on insanity, just proclaimed that if HRC wins the November 8, 2016 presidential election (which she will) it will be our last election.
In an interview with The Brody File, former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says this will be the "last election" if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. She says the GOP won't win another election if she's in The White House.
"Hillary Clinton will ensure it won't happen because she's going to change the demographics of the United States so that no Republican will ever win again," Bachmann tells me.

Therefore, Bachmann has a message for all the anti-Trump folks:
"I say get over it! All the 'Never Trumpers,' all the establishment Republicans that are out there saying,'We'll just take our chances and four years from now we'll have a better candidate, then we can take the White House.' It's not going to happen."
Republicans will win presidential elections again when and if the republican nominee is representative of the nation's political views. When the republican party and it's presidential candidate understands what the issues are, presents a rational action plan for addressing them, grasps that we have a diverse society, and shows sincere tolerance for, and acceptance of, our diversity we will have a republican candidate that can and will win the White House.
BTW, with individuals like Bachmann speaking for the GOP and on behalf of its presidential nominee (presumably) it is quite likely the GOP could lose the house as well.
