Former Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann praised Donald Trump on a Christian radio broadcast, telling the audience that the 45th president is the most “godly” and “Biblical” president the nation has ever seen — or will ever see.
As HuffPost reports, Bachmann appeared on the “Understanding The Times” Christian radio show, where she was effusive in her praise for the 45th president.
“He is highly biblical, and I would say to your listeners, we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetime. So we need to be not only praying for him, we need to support him, in my opinion, in every possible way that we can.”
In particular, she praised Trump’s stance on transgender troops serving in the military. As Buzzfeed News reports, a ban on transgender troops serving in the military went into effect last week. Trump had tweeted two years ago that he wanted transgender individuals to no longer be able to serve in the armed forces, overturning an Obama administration lifting of the ban in 2016. The ban had been in place for decades prior.
She even went so far as to claim that Obama ordered military officials to actively recruit transgender individuals, and that Trump’s overturn of the ban is even more impressive — considering his predecessor’s supposed actions.
As far as Bachmann is concerned, overturning the Obama administration policy was — and is — an act of standing up for what is right, Biblically, according to Fox News.
“Donald Trump has had the courage in [sic] the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.”
Bachmann, who has served as an “Evangelical adviser” to the president, also repeated some of Trump’s favorite talking points. Specifically, that there is a so-called deep state of government operatives, operating outside the rule of law, that are trying to undermine Trump. This alleged deep state is also attempting to “advance cultural and economic Marxism or to advance the goals of Islamic jihad, for instance,” per Bachmann. She said that she has prayed to end the purported deep state.
As HuffPost reports, social media users were quick to point out an apparently disconnect between Bachmann’s belief that Trump is a “godly” and “Biblical” president with his actual track record. Some, for instance, pointed out his three marriages. Others gestured towards the fact that the president has faced accusations of infidelity, and accusations of having paid hush money to an adult-film actress.
