Did anyone else notice the end of the Oval Office Addres?

He ended it with “. . . so help me God! Thank you and good night.”

Haven’t most [real] presidents ended Oval Office speeches to the nation with an anodyne, “God bless America”?

I don’t remember whether President Obama ever neglected to use that ending (because it’s not that important to me). Wouldn’t the religious troglodytes have jumped all over President Obama had he failed to end a speech with “GbA”?

So far, I’ve not seen any mention of this in the media; even if Faux Noise blowhards adverted to this, I doubt they’d mention it publicly.

I believe that a narcissist could easily say, “. . . so help *me* God,” and wouldn’t even consider ending with “GbA,” so this is no surprise to me on this level.

Amazing the thoroughgoing hypocrisy of the Religious Wrong these days! Sigh.

1. He is so not used to referring to God in any way

that he forgot the phrase God Bless America and substituted So help me God, the phrase used in taking an oath.
He has become extremely forgetful, a sure sign of mental deterioration.

At least that is my reading of what happened

4. Actually, "So help me God" is more often used in the midst of a fight!

 

As in : "If you don't do as I say, I'll beat the shit outta you...so help me God!"

Seems to fit right into the situation.

2. I noticed it

5. Where you insert the comma is everything

Maybe he actually said, “so help me, God.”

7. He is not into the Christian religion nor any religion that

does not put him first and only. Evangelists main purpose is to put their selfish religious ideology upon what they considered as the "unwashed" by any means necessary.

9. His ending was suppposed to bring to mind...

I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, So Help Me God.

He was engaging in irony by mistake.

14. He is implying to his base that he is telling the truth. NOT!

And so the base continues in loving its favorite fantasy president. They can't like the real president, so they go into denial by indulging in this fantasy favorite.

"See, TrumpButt, he is not making an ass of us ... he is telling the truth or he wouldn't have said that about God."

Or, "That poor guy, he is for God and God is for him. Too bad Satan is messing things up - the devil always tries to waylay the important people like pastors and God-fearing presidents."

10. Here's the transcript.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/08/us/politics/trump-speech-transcript.html

snip of article


This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve. When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country and that is what I will always do so help me god.



My opinion. He can really fuck off. He is such a BS artist and he is not fooling anyone except his fucking base.

Such a liar. Is that why is holding young children in cages and letting them perish, and pulling them away from their parents. Asylum is legal.
