Pat Robertson Says California Earthquake Was God Clapping for Trump's 4th of July Parade Read

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA — Though he didn’t give his Independence Day speech until hours later after the initial shockwaves subsided, President Donald Trump triggered an earthquake in California yesterday when God applauded him earlier in the day.

At least that’s what televangelist Pat Robertson believes. Rev. Robertson told listeners of his Friday podcast series that the massive 6.6 magnitude earthquake centered around Ridgecrest, California yesterday was the result of God giving Trump “thunderous, holy applause”
for putting on a 4th of July military parade. Though many had criticized the festivities as those of third world, tinhorn authoritarian dictators, Robertson said “God clearly is on Team Trump.”

“God likes pomp! God likes pageantry! If you think about it, God probably empathizes with President Trump,” Robertson told his audience. “Because they both like to make big, bombastic threats and rule with fear. At least in the Old Testament God’s that way. We also know flat out that God is a big American patriot, so of course he’d cheer and applaud Trump’s America parade!”

Robertson says that in the past he might have felt that God was somehow punishing Californians with the earthquake. But he’s had a “change of heart” and has decided that God’s “over” hurting people with natural disasters.

7. If a volcano had erupted in the middle of Trump's speech

and destroyed everything within the DC city limits, including Trump himself, Robertson would have figured out an excuse for it being a sign of God's approval of Trump (assuming this was even something Robertson said, which is hard to tell these days).

15. "At least in the Old Testament God's that way."

But you are a Christian so your God is not that way. Are you saying that the Hebrew God likes Trump but the Christian God doesn't like Trump but the Old Testament God and the New Testament God are the same God but he is a nicer God now because he believes in Jesus? My brain hurts.
