Pat Robertson: People Who Oppose Trump Are Revolting Against God

Local embarrassment Pat Robertson is at it again and I again wonder why his children don't quietly lock him in an upstairs bedroom out of public view,.  In his latest bout of verbal diarrhea, Robertson has ranted that anyone opposing Der Trumpenführer is "revolting against God."  I'm sorry, but anything is revolting, it is Robertson and his flim flam operation that fleeces the ignorant and the gullible so that Robertson can live the good life.  Right Wing Watch captures Robertson's latest batshitery.  Here are excerpts:
Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson wondered if President Obama and other Democrats may have participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down President Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn, who resigned on Monday over his communications with Russia’s U.S. ambassador.
While Flynn and other White House officials said that the two did not talk about U.S. sanctions against Russia before Trump’s inauguration, such statements conflicted with “reports from U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies that routinely monitor the communications of Russian diplomats.”
Robertson, however, wrongly suggested that U.S. intelligence agencies were specifically monitoring Flynn, not the ambassador, and then warned of a larger plot involving Democrats, liberal government officials and members of the media that he believes could be working to take Flynn down and damage the Trump administration.
Referring to Psalm 2:2, “The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed,” Robertson said that those challenging Trump are really fighting against God:
I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America. These other people have been trying to destroy America. These left-wingers and so-called progressives are trying to destroy the country that we love and take away the freedoms they love. They want collectivism. They want socialism. What we’re looking at is free markets and freedom from this terrible, overarching bureaucracy. They want to fight as much as they can but I think the good news is the Bible says, “He that sits in the heavens will laugh them to scorn,” and I think that Trump’s someone on his side that is a lot more powerful than the media.
I want Der Trumpenführer to be impeached or, better yet, convicted of treason and at a minimum jailed for the rest of his life, for many reasons.  But one of the most delicious side benefits would be the utter discrediting of Robertson and other modern day Pharisees  and their institutions - think Regent University - who have hooked their credibility (or at least what credibility they still have) to Der Trumpenführer.
