Over the years, people have suggested that Eric Trump may not be the brightest member of his family, even though in all likelihood it’s a close contest between him and Donald Trump Jr. Both have the habit of firing off posts on X that are larded with misspellings. Both have also had questionable roles running The Trump Organization which is now facing the very real possibilities of a $370 million fine and even the chance that their father, Donald Trump may find it nearly impossible to conduct real estate business in New York ever again.
Now, however, Eric, his wife Lara Trump, and dear old Dad’s attorney, Alina Habba, seem to have got religion. At least that’s what Right Wing Watch is reporting. The night before the Iowa caucus, the trio met with self-proclaimed “prophet” Amanda Grace, who was hosting a “Night of Prayer for the Trump Family and the Nation” and other members of Donald Trump’s inner circle. Which also included the likes of Roger Stone, conspiracy theorist Clay Clark, MAGA pastor Jackson Lahmeyer, and really nutball “prophet” Robin Bullock.
And yes, they were all on board for Eric’s dad appearing at the caucus. Natch.
Grace began the program by interviewing Eric and Lara and that led Eric to proclaim his father had been
infested, er I mean, guided by God.
“i think he’s created the greatest political movement in history,” Eric said. “and i really do believe that someone,something is looking down and guiding him every single day because there’s no way in the world he could have been where he is today without the intervention of God.”
Of course, the Catholic Church thought it was doing the right thing during the Crusades (1095-1291 CE) when it slaughtered more than 1.7 million people, so if this is the best God can do, I have a few bones to pick with Him. He’s been busy in Gaza, Ukraine, and scads of other places around the globe, so it would be nice if he’d give that whole war thing a rest.
But of course, Eric is lucky if he can put one foot in front of the other, so things like the Crusades, and the atrocities of World Wars l and ll never really cross his mind. He’s fully convinced his dad has God’s ear.
“i feel it. i know it,” the younger trump said. “i really do believe that there’s divine intervention there. i think somebody was guiding him. he’s a remarkable father. he did a remarkable job for the united states of america, and i truly pray to the lord that he wins again [and] he sorts out this country because we are in dangerous times, and it’s scary.”
Then Alina Habba had her say, and she claimed all of Trump’s legal difficulties were part of a “demonic plan.”
“i think that there is a plan,” habba said. “there’s god’s plan, and then there’s a demonic plan. and the demonic plan is very easily confused with real life (but then so is Alina). there’s an orchestrated thing going on here. don’t get it twisted. we have cases lined up intentionally during election time, intentionally trying to get negative attention right before an election.”
“he’s being pulled from the campaign time and time again to be deposed, to be subpoenaed, to go to trial, to fight the fight to clear his name,” Habba said. “But the people that know him and the people that have faith and are reading—the people that are educating themselves, the people that are not listening to the fake news—they will understand and they do understand and they stand with him. and honestly, we’re flipping the ones that don’t know, because their demonic plan is so obvious.”
She concluded with “Pray for people to open their eyes. They like to call MAGA Republicans a cult mentality. We’re not a cult mentality; we love America. If that’s a cult, I’m happy to love America. I’m happy to be part of that.”
But I’ve got a question. It seems to me that if God can listen, so can Satan. How did they know they weren’t talking to Him instead? He’s quite the prankster after all.
He’d think of Donald Trump as a real joke.
