We all know their all close minded and against anything progressive, Right? Well I hate to burst your bubble, but I’m an Independent. As to your second question, the person I voted for never won the primaries. He was strongly criticized for his conservative views by the MSM. We can’t have anybody like that running for office can we? Did I like either candidate? No, not really. But given the choice between 4 more years of progressive liberalism or someone who might agree on at least some things I believe in, the choice wasn’t that hard. Is Trump a flawed man? Of course he is. We all are. It’s my job to pray for him and his success. I can’t change who he is, but I know who can. And if we spent more time praying for him instead of criticizing him, who knows how he might turn out.
I didn’t accuse you of anything. This started when you took offense to someone saying a person could be both a “democrat” and a “Christian.” I was seeking clarity. You still haven’t answered the question! I’ll go on the record: a person can be a Democrat and/or Liberal and still be a Christian. One can also be a member of a party and not agree with every part of its platform.
As for the last half of your post: we all certainly need to pray for the President and wish him a “successful”presidency... we should do that no matter who is in office. By “successful” I don’t mean “get’s his way,” but rather “leaves the country better off” when he is done.
I believe we have come to a hyper partisan time in our country, which is very sad. To a large portion of the country, Bush could “do no right.” neither could Obama. Now Trump is in that boat. #Sad!
There are many things I disagree with Trump on, but for the media & many others there is NOTHING he could do right. He could save a kitten in a tree and be called names... including one mentioned in this thread! Those who oppose the President would be much wiser to pick their battles. As it is, they (collectively) sound stupid every time they open their mouths.
He is accused of not treating women with respect... which is partially true. It is a bit ironic, however, that he treats women with the same level of disrespect that he treats men. #EqualRights! For example, Rosie O’Donnell should be pitied and prayed for... No one should go under the abuse he has given her on Twitter. I know that she has done the same... Christ followers are called to a higher standard.
