Donald Trump Is A Gracious, Giving, and Good Man, Says Joel Osteen

“You Can’t Find a More Gracious, Giving Person Than Mr. Trump,” says Christian preacher Joel Osteen, who says Donald Trump is a “good man.”

So, what does a good, gracious, giving man look like, according to Preacher Osteen? Let’s do a quick survey of Trump’s moral values.

Trump The Giving Person

“You’re fired!”

“Donald J. Trump is the very definition of the American success story, continually setting the standards of excellence while expanding his interests in real estate, sports and entertainment.”

“Wages are too high. We’re not going to be able to compete against the world.”

“If I become president, oh do they have problems. They’re going to have such problems.”

“I’d like to punch him in the face.”

“Calling for a temporary shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until we can figure out what’s going on.”

“Get him the hell out of here!”

Trump The Gracious Person

“Knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell, I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise. I promise.”

John McCain was “not a war hero… I like people who weren’t captured.”

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

“I would bomb the shit out of them.”

Trump The Good Man

“Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would. In a heartbeat. I would approve more than that! Even if it doesn’t work, they deserve it anyway.”

“He deserved to get roughed up.”

“Just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I don’t know. I mean, I don’t know — did he endorse me or what’s going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke.”

“It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”

“I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks.”

“I want surveillance of certain mosques if that’s OK.”

Trump, Giving, Gracious and Good All Wrapped Up Together

“Early in this century, last century, General Pershing, did you ever hear? Rough guy. Rough guy. They had a terrorism problem, and there’s a whole thing with swine and animals and pigs, and you know the story. They don’t like them, and they were having a tremendous problem with terrorism, and by the way, this is something you can read in the history books, not a lot of history books, because they don’t like teaching this, and General Pershing was a rough guy, and he sits on his horse, straight like a ramrod, and it was early 1900s, and this was a terrible problem.

They were having terrorism problems, just like we do, and he caught 50 terrorists who did tremendous damage and killed many people, and he took the 50 terrorists, and he took 50 men, and he dipped 50 bullets in pig’s blood. You heard that, right? He took 50 bullets, and he dipped them in pig’s blood, and he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people, and the 50th person, he said: ‘You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.’… So we better start getting tough, and we better start getting vigilant, and we better start using our heads, or we’re not going to have a country, folks! We’re not going to have a country.”

oh the humility

    Protesters at political rallies are not new to the 21st century. Read below and listen to what Ronald Reagan said at one such event when he was running for the white house in 1969. Then think at what has transpired at Trump rallies, what he finally has said about having to finally call for stronger measures than just trying to shame them. You are right in some ways, he should have called for stronger measures to begin with. Taken adult responsibility and had all protesters blocked from entry as was done with Obama, Clinton, Bill, Clinton, Hillary, and Bush (both of them). Instead he allowed open doors to allow all to come in and listen. But then these only are happening just before a primary election – to run down and intimidate his supporters. It is a sad day for America.

      Ella, are you seriously saying that the problem with Trump rallies is that he hasn’t been authoritarian enough? People are getting violently attacked in those arenas.

      But, Ella, the problems with Donald Trump go way beyond crude mob violence. They go to his animosity against the Bill of Rights, his complete lack of diplomatic skill, and his eagerness to commit war crimes, unapologetically targeting even children.

      Are you okay with that, Ella?

        I regret that mankind feels obligated to such take actions. Take a good look around you. The world is comprised of people who are very different by nature and many of them live by the very social actions that you have just described. There are, metaphorically speaking, Tyrannosaurs and kittens among the “hordes”, barely living in a civilized manner. Not because they ‘want’ to, but because it is the way they are. Then there are those who have no choice but to do as they are told, or die, maybe worse, first. They want to be freed, somehow. The EU for the past few years has been falling into despair and now the hordes from the middle-east have descended and brought much violence with them. (refugees, some not all) Violence anywhere in the world seems to spill over. Trump made no remarks that included violence until it began in his rallies. These are people being led by trained agitators, most have no idea what they are ‘protesting’, but have excess energy they want to use up. Just for excitement even if it takes pushing someone to take a swing at them. I do not feel sorry for the agitators, they have as much right to vote as anyone else. Haven’t you noticed that they only show up just before each multi-state primary? Trump will change when the tenor of the meetings changes. One thing he is doing is psychologically hurting some of his supporters, he sometimes plays like a child and that may be purposeful. To him, in those instances, he is still an entertainer. He needs to change that to some degree and only say things that the other person realizes is meant as humor.
        A President needs to be authoritarian to a point, that is properly use authority. If agitators are allowed free reign you get chaos, and that is being feared. Why else are permits to carry weapons for personal protection being legislated into the law all over the country? Tread marks on the backs of people who once had big, open, giving hearts, have turned into change, it appears. Wouldn’t you rather someone write an editorial to a newspaper, than come to your church meeting and get in your face? It amounts to the same thing. It has been growing for many years, just as it had in Reagan’s day. Don’t you believe that it is better to jail a few and let those who were being led realize why?

    Joel Osteen is a positive person of good will. I’ll bet that his statements are a result of having met Donald Trump in person, while having a lack of knowledge of many relevant facts about Trump. He might have done better by asking Vince McMahon for some details before praising Trump.

      What are you promoting concerning “Mr. McMahon”? Quite a wrestler in his day. Of course he also has been in the business of professional wrestling. Trump and McMahon are about the same age. Did they cross paths at some time? Please provide some more information. After all, it is a small world as many philosophers have said. We all know people in different ways, and react to different people in different ways. Politicians tend to stare at large groups and generically say what they believe is most pleasing – to get the votes of course. That is refreshing about Trump, kinda hard to understand at first for some of us, but definitely understood by a great many people. More so as time goes on. Maybe McMahon and Trump have something in common?
