There are many ways to stand out when a politician is campaigning for the highest office in the United States. But attacking your opponents religious supporters has to be the worst way to go about it.
That fact doesn’t seem to be a deterrent for Democrat Pete Buttigieg who is speaking out against both Donald Trump and his supporters on a religious basis.
Buttigieg first went after Trump, claiming the president wasn’t capable of the humility required to be religious.
“I’m reluctant to comment on another person’s faith, but I would say it is hard to look at this president’s actions and believe that they’re the actions of somebody who believes in God. I just don’t understand how you can be as worshipful of your own self as he is and be prepared to humble yourself before God. I’ve never seen him humble himself before anyone,” Buttigieg said.
Not satisfied with that statement alone, the 2020 hopeful recently appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” to bash Christians who follow Trump.
“It’s something that frustrates me because the hypocrisy is unbelievable. Here you have somebody that not only acts in a way that’s not consistent with anything I hear in scripture or church where it is about lifting up the least among us and taking care of strangers, which is another word for immigrants, and making sure that you are focusing your efforts on the poor. Also personally how you’re supposed to conduct yourself,” Buttigieg stated.
This is an outright abuse of faith as Buttigieg weaponizes religious belief in order to attack President Trump and his supporters. But don’t be surprised if Democrats refuse to make a fuss about it.
