Donald Trump called himself ‘the King of Israel’ and ‘the Chosen One’

Trump Departs for Louisville, KY

I burst out laughing with many of the Trump headlines from the last 24 hours. I have to laugh to keep from crying and going into a depression spiral. Everything is absurd. Everything is surreal. Nothing matters. On Tuesday, Donald Trump was speaking about Israel and his ass-backwards support of Israel, and he basically said that American Jewish voters should be supporting him, because: “I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” Ah, yes, “disloyalty.” What we absolutely needed this week was an old anti-Semitic trope. Then Trump decided to tweet out some compliments, because of course. And he called himself the King of Israel.

Did you also know that Donald Trump, the King of Israel, is also The Chosen One?

And if that wasn’t enough, Trump decided to tweet out some criticism of current car manufacturers for… trying to make cleaner, more environmentally friendly cars while he’s trying to rollback regulations on emissions. He ended up praising Henry Ford, who was a notorious anti-Semite. Ford was one of Adolf Hitler’s favorite people.

Oh, and he’s still bitching about how he wasn’t allowed to “buy Greenland.” Yesterday, the female prime minister of Denmark talked sh-t about Trump and he, in turn, called her “nasty.”

    Oh yeah, he’s gone full batshit.

    • Birdix says:

      It’s still shocking that this is reality.

    • CharliePenn says:

      I thought he already HAD gone full batshit, I can’t believe there is so much more batshit to go. Like two years ago I thought he was as insane as he could possibly get, and that he was as bad as our country could possibly tolerate.
      His insanity and our tolerance apparently both know no bounds. It’s constantly terrifying and humiliating. I can’t watch him speak anymore, makes me physically ill.

      • Esmom says:

        I know, right? Every day brings a new low, every day I can’t believe this is real life.

      • SJR says:

        Agreed 100%. How Trump is still in office is beyond my understanding.
        The man is making a joke of the office of POTUS continually on a daily basis.
        Are we just waiting for the clock to run out on his time?
        The people in our serving armed forces and their families must be worried sick with this Tool, he is a nutjob who can order our troops on a whim. And for the rest of us, our rights are being stomped on constantly.

      • Swack says:

        @SJR, my grandson was on the John C. Stennis this past December in the Persian Gulf when Iranian missiles were fired near it. Yeah, its frightening to have someone in the armed services right now. At present the Stennis is porting in Norfolk because it’s suppose to be dry docked for 5 years to be refitted but is currently waiting to do so. Doesn’t mean it can’t be sent back as they have gone out to sea to do exercises recently.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Chump has ALWAYS been full batshit!

      • Tx_mom says:

        *I* wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if my kid were in the armed forces, but I have two friends who are beyond thrilled that their sons have just signed up for the military — and these are educated people.

        One is going to college on a marine scholarship before he goes, and one just decided to bypass college after getting admitted to our state’s flagship public university.

        I have teenagers and they know so many boys joining the military because they don’t Know what else to do after high school. One of them joined the marines and is not worried at all because “it’s not like we’re in a war.” WE’VE BEEN IN A WAR THEIR ENTIRE LIVES AND THEY DON’T KNOW.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        omg “It’s not like we’re in a war?” Seriously?

    • MC2 says:

      Agreed. When can use that 25th amendment?

      • Christin says:

        Yesterday evening, I was wondering exactly what would ever constitute pursuing the 25th, if this apparently does not?

  2. M. says:

    Donald Trump is great at distracting the public. Everything he said and tweeted went viral. Why do people keep falling for his tactics?

    • Birdix says:

      Distraction from what? This is a call out to his evangelical base.

      • ByTheSea says:

        His administration’s change in policy that allows for indefinite suspension of migrant families. Families will be kept in jail (because that’s what that is) for as long as he feels like without a hearing, trial, etc., in those deplorable conditions. (And he’s just nuts. He can’t help himself at this point. He has gone off on the messianic deep end.)

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        Right on.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        The new rules around detaining children, the real effects of his ‘trade war’ on the US and Global economies and the fact that he was exposed on lying to the IRS and HMRC (UK tax collector) about the value of his 2 Scottish golf courses – he told the IRS that he was in debt with them but told HMRC that they were both worth $165mill (even after giving them ‘loans’), he committed tax fraud, AGAIN.

      • Darla says:

        I 100 percent agree with Birdix. THis is no distraction. This is him whistling to his batshit evangelical base. They believe this. They believe he has been chosen. He is letting them know they’re right. He has been chosen by God. Think about this people. It’s not a distraction. It’s a main issue. We in danger girl!

        Please understand if he loses, they will fight what they will consider a religious war. A real war. Against the rest of us.

      • Christin says:

        Add to list: Job numbers overstated for 12 months (reported yesterday). Low approval numbers.

      • Myrtle says:

        Maybe distraction from his relationship with Epstein, too?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      He’s not mentally with it enough to be that strategic. He’s just a walking train wreck naturally. I think his administration pretty much runs itself under the motto of “take the money and run, while hurting as many POC as you can”. Trump doesn’t have the capacity to understand details. He lets his minions take care of that.

      But your overall point still stands. Calculated or not, we must be aware of ALL of his administration’s misdeeds.

  3. Beli says:

    Every time I think he can’t possibly get more insane he goes and proves me wrong.

    • Miss V says:

      Seriously. This world is figuratively and literally burning in flames… it’s almost too much.

  4. IlsaLund says:

    When will this F—-King nightmare end! The orange 🤡 is seriously deranged. We’re all being gaslighted. When will the media begin treating what this fool says as garbage and hold him accountable for the rubbish that comes out of his mouth.

  5. Christina says:

    Chosen by Putin!

  6. Leslie says:

    It’s frustrating that he’s so far gone and NOBODY WILL DO ANYTHING!

    • Sumodo1 says:

      As a Jew who usually registers as Independent, I am throwing myself to the Dems, saying: “Get rid of this loon!” He’s going to declare himself Napoleon next.

  8. B says:

    Has anyone else what the family on Netflix?

  9. Sayrah says:

    JFC. Please let a motivating democratic candidate come forward. I can’t imagine another 4 years of this.

    • ByTheSea says:

      …and we’re still cherry-picking democrats (when will the perfect democrat come forward??) when this is what we have as president.

      • Allie says:

        ITA. Flipper the dolphin would be a better president than Agent Orange. Anyone would do a better job!

      • Sayrah says:

        I’ll vote for anyone up against him. I can’t say the same for other people who will split the vote and choose third party because the nominee isn’t exactly what they want.

      • tw says:

        thank you.

      • IlsaLund says:

        I’m voting for whoever is Trump’s opponent. It could be Bubbles the Chimp…he’s getting my vote.

      • Agirlandherdog says:

        Sayrah, you nailed it. Republicans rally behind their candidate (once chosen) and defend him even to their own detriment. Democrats can’t pull off that kind of unity because they want their candidate to be perfect. No one is perfect. But any of the democrats running are sure as hell better than this.

      • Darla says:

        Right??? Man, I don’t need to be “inspired” to vote for anyone to get this monster out of office, and if you do? Get out of my country. I am seriously at that point now. Get out. Help. Fight. Pick a side. If you are going to sit it out? Get out.

      • Jerusha says:

        I’d vote for a packet of yeast. It’d do less damage than this lunatic and his band of criminals.

      • Christin says:

        A cat pressing a “yes” or “no” button would make better decisions.

        Beggars cannot be choosers right now. We got a cult of personality last time, and how is that working out?

      • Jerusha says:

        @Agirlandherdog. I was born during FDR’s last term and if you look at it, every election since then, every Democrat has been better than the Republican opponent. Why that is not obvious to every sentient being IDK.

  10. Mumbles says:

    PBS ran a series on dictators (“The Dictator’s Playbook”) in the early spring and one episode was on Idi Amin. One of Amin’s signature moves was to say insane things that the Western media would seize on, with the motive of distracting them from the true evil he was doing. Trump reminds me of Amin. A larger than life megalomaniac who governed over the decline and corruption of a country, punctuated with episodes of hate and violence.

    This crazy stuff is important in that it gives us a glimpse of his mental state but should not act as a distraction. Remember when everyone got excited about “cofeve”? Those were the days.

    • tw says:

      I don’t think there is any strategy behind any of this. He’s just a bigoted, ugly, loud mouthed, racist old man saying whatever ignorant crap comes to mind.

      • Esmom says:

        I agree, he’s too dumb and lazy to bother to come up with and deploy an actual strategy. Anything he does that appears strategic is either by accident or because someone basically commanded him to say or do something.

      • MsIam says:

        Oh there is definitely a strategy, @tw. Remember the Wizard of Oz? “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” just look at the image in front of you. The people pulling the strings are the real enemy, Trump is just their evil, willing accomplice.

    • Jerusha says:

      trump has no impulse control. He says whatever crap pops into his deranged mind. His only strategy is grifting and avoiding jail.

  11. boredblond says:

    If another old man were ranting and blathering the same alternative reality stuff, any er would be required to put him on a 5250 psych hold. When is it going to be obvious to everyone that he is seriously mentally ill?

  12. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    I usually don’t click on trump stories on this site anymore and haven’t for months. My heart and mind can’t handle it. To be clear, this is no statement about the great CB team it’s just he pure evil. I’m not a religious person, but I’ll never forget the story of the Golden Calf due to my Catholic upbringing, and his followers worship him like that. These so-called Christians worship trump as a false idol. They are breaking the number one commandment – thou shall not have any other God before me. I sit here dumbfounded every day this fucker is in office, but because of this site and Twitter, I’m glad I’m not alone.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    Yesterday, he also claimed that victims of mass shootings just love him, insulted Germany, and took credit for a veterans student loan forgiveness program that has been around for ages (2 cousins who are Vietnam vets got multiple degrees paid for through the program)

    This morning, he has started attacking his own federal reserve choice again.

  14. Grey says:

    I used to go to church. I left for many reasons but it literally makes my blood BOIL to listen to this man talk and know that “Christians” support him. He is essentially comparing himself to Jesus. I don’t know how anyone can say they love God and support this man.

    • Jerusha says:

      I call them Old Testamenters, not Christians. The OT was full of a bloodthirsty, vengeful god and that’s what they’re closer to. Jesus was like the first hippie with his peace, love and understanding routine. Today’s “Christians” for trump would run him out of town on a rail if they didn’t crucify him first.

      • Grey says:

        That is a really good way of describing it. It is also almost useless to try and point out to these people why he is horrible as I feel that they willfully ignore any valid criticism.

  15. SJR says:

    Remember after Regan was out of office and then the news broke that he was having memory problems/start of dementia while he was still acting POTUS?

    Is Trump also having health issues? I do not think so, IMO Trump is on a huge ego trip and has gone off the rails completely.

    Can no one on staff shut down his bs? Unplug the wifi on him. Idiot, maniac.TOOL!

    • B n A fn says:

      I do remember when some reporters were saying president Reagan was suffering from Alzheimer’s and his people deny, deny deny. They also said Nancy was running the country his people also deny, deny, deny, now we know that was all true. Now we are hearing #45 is a lunatic and they are denying, denying, denying. I’m going with my gut feelings, this man is having a nervous breakdown. This is a stressful job, he can’t do the job, all he does is tweet, lie, distract and project his incompetence on Pres Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  16. Jennifer says:

    He said all of that….

    And turned around and said the Denmark prime minister’s comment was inappropriate….

    And his supporters will twist themselves into pretzels to condone it all.

    I have a relative that truly believes Cambridge Analytica was working for Hillary and will not believe me when I try to explain reality. And says they “don’t know” that there really are detained children at the border because she has never seen it with her own eyes. I cried, this is a very smart woman that is very brainwashed by the content she sees on facebook.

  17. Wolfy says:

    Read Revelation and find some scary parallels. The Antichrist will proclaim himself God. Just sayin’.

  18. B says:

    The Family is about a group of people who justify their actions as being “Chosen”. Only some men are destined to be chosen and that if Jesus was live today he would be a big celebrity sports playing president.

    Interesting but very dispersing.

  19. Sam says:

    White man uses anti-semitic trope and it is ignored. Anti-semitism is a real thing and we should always call it out. Funny how if this was anyone of “The Squad” we’d have full court press on this.

  20. Harryg says:

    What else can he say? That he wants to buy the Earth?
    Please please let this be over soon, every day is so goddamn irritating.

  21. Eleonor says:

    Wait until he declares himself the heir of Slytherin.

  22. margie says:

    Aren’t we paying thousands more for cars b/c of his dick-swinging contest trade wars? Of course he has to shift blame on that, just like everything else.

  23. sayrah says:

    Going back to this. The man, is upset, that Denmark won’t let him buy Greenland. I don’t know what more to say.

  24. B n A fn says:

    I believe he’s having a nervious breakdown. This is not normal behavior. I bet he cursed the day he helped Putin to Messed with our election to get him elected. I see they put out revised # yesterday saying over 500,000 people lost their jobs a few months ago and his tax cut did diggley squat to help because all the money went to the top 1% and nothing trickled down to the middle class. I know as a fact I saw nothing of that tax cut.

    Now all his mis calculations are coming home to roost and he has no answer except to lie, lie and more lies. I hope he resign before he bring the country down with him.

  25. Alibeebee says:

    I’m Jewish and he’s. not good for me or any other Jews . This is beyond disgusting and gross . The majority of Israelis DO nOT like him! The majority of Israelis are POC’s and we know he hates people of colour like me and my family … ughhhh

  26. Lala11_7 says:

    NOTHING…the GOP does or says shocks me….

    So…I looked at this…and just added more cream to my coffee…perhaps someday folks will TRULY learn that the Republican Party has been going down the drain…ALL 51 YEARS OF MY LIFE!

  27. JennyJenny says:

    I can’t wait till he tweets, “I’m Batman!”

    25th now!

    He needs to be put away. Seriously, and take Andy with you.

  30. Livvers says:

    The Evangelicals spent so long claiming Obama would bring about the end times, and they don’t see that this guy presents himself exactly like a Tim Lahaye Antichrist???

  31. Michelle says:

    Will someone commit this f*****g lunatic!!!! He’s beyond help. Just lock him up.
    Asylum, Prison, one or the other.

    We are in “Dead Zone” territory. Stephen King foretold trump.

    I thought the King of Israel was David

  34. Alida Gage says:

    Please let’s not forget about his links to Epstein. And Clinton’s.

  35. These comparisons to Godlike figures are TOO much! Have mercy, man. Not even close. And yeah this will probably even get worse before it is better. THEN, we are going to vote him out, and make sure he and horrid Ivanka and Jared, or any one of them are EVER in again. Trust me, he is going to just keep yapping and getting worse – GOOD. Keep it up Mr. Trump :-) . He is doing half the battle for us. He is losing support. All we have to do (and I know, we are tired, but we can and will do this) is to not get complacent, come up with our candidates, get people informed and out to vote! Thanks to CB and Kaiser, and all of you as always for paying attention to this. Very much appreciated!

  36. noway says:

    Am I the only one who keeps having King Herrod’s song from Jesus Christ Superstar running through my head, but this time King Herrod’s right Donald Trump is a fraud and not king of the Jews.

  37. Citresse says:

    Be glad Trump can’t buy Greenland. He’d have renamed it Trumpland and polluted it with golf courses, hotels and porn stars.

  38. CairinaCat says:

    It’s not great to be saying to his Evangelical groupies, he just proclaimed himself the Antichrist by saying he’s the king of Israel and the second coming of God.
    My mom who voted for him and is a proud little deplorable was.. wait wut??

    I refuse to believe this orange shitstain is the Antichrist 😂😂💩

  39. whybother says:

    thousand years of waiting and Jewish get Trump as their the chosen one?

  40. Andrea says:

    Trump read somewhere that the US tried to buy Greenland in 1949 and decided he’d be the hero for us. LOL

  41. Sharon k says:

    Every day I say, what is Hilary thinking? She must wonder how did I lose to this total lunatic?
    She would have mAde s great president . Although flawed she’s not even in the same universe as this orange buffoon .
    I fear for the country and all of us.
    Wake up Democrat’s !! It’s time to fight dirty .
