Trump declares coronavirus 'National Day of Prayer', suggests looking to God for 'protection'

The leader of the free world urged people to pray as he continues to receive harsh criticism for his response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer,” Trump tweeted. “We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these,” he argued.

“No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!” he predicted.

13. I knew that bullshit was coming.

How can he touch a Bible without it burning him?

I ask a God I don't even believe in every day why we are stuck with Trump. Why not a drunken bonobo? It would do a better job.

When I pray next, I will ask God why did a serious pandemic have to happen under this Orange Choad buffoon and all of his idiotic false prophet loving worshipers. That's my biggest next question.

Why would God help us now anyhow? Half his followers have quit worshiping him and started worshiping Trump. Maybe they should just keep worshiping Trump and let the rest of us non-stupid people work out something with God to make things better. Every time they pray, things just get worse, because that is what they pray for. They will just be praying for a way to blame it on gay people anyhow. Nobody needs that.

This is fucking ridiculous. I cannot believe we went from Obama to this. How far we have fallen.

58. I've put some thought into whether or not D. trump is, in fact, Satan.

The movies, historical literature, plays, and poetry make Lucifer seem like such a handsome, dashing guy. Tim Curry, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, even Warner Bros. The Dark Prince is supposed to be charming and witty. This guy is a dud, a blob, a failure, ugly as homemade sin, and has no sense of humor.

Yet, how can this creature thrive on Special Sauce and walk thru curtains of contamination and NOT have toppled over? Am I wrong about everything? Is Satan actually an annoying, irritating, BORING prick?
One with nothing but malevolence & bad will for everybody.

22. Reminds me of the story of the man trapped on his roof during a flood.

A guy in a canoe comes past and offers to rescue him. He says, "No, thanks. The Lord will provide."
The water gets up to his knees. A guy in a rubber raft comes by. He says, "No, thanks. The Lord will provide."
The water is up to his chin. A police boat comes by. He says, "No, thanks. The Lord will provide."
Then he goes under, and drowns.
Once in heaven, he asks God why He didn't save him. The Lord says, "Come on, I sent you a canoe, a raft, and a boat!"

So...

On this National Day of Prayer, I'm going to pray that God sends us a wise, smart, strong, competent, capable, and empathetic leader to replace the one we've got now -- and I pray that Americans, stranded in the current chaos, are wise enough to know this person when they see him!

"Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places. Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour."

The Trump administration doesn’t value basic science, it doesn’t understand it and it tends to reject it when it conflicts with its political narrative. Sorry GOP but "thoughts and prayers" will not fix this and we are now at the mercy of people delusional enough to think their pleas to God will fix the problem.
