Republicans comparing Trump’s arrest to Jesus’s Crusifiction

It‘s funny to see the lengths that some Republicans will go to in order to defend their beloved former president, Donald Trump. As the Manhattan District Attorney‘s office reportedly prepares to indict Trump in relation to a $130,000 payment from his lawyer and fixer to Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence prior to the 2016 election, some of the President‘s supporters are drawing comparisons between his plight and the suffering of Jesus Christ. The absurdity of this comparison is not lost on many people, especially given the fact that Trump‘s alleged involvement in the hush money payment was to cover up an affair with a porn star. Trump has tried to cast himself as a victim of political persecution by “evil and sinister people,” and lawyer Joseph McBride, who is representing several Jan. 6 defendants, even went so far as to suggest that Trump’s imminent arrest was timed with Lent – a time of suffering and purification for the followers of Jesus Christ. McBride further stated that “as Christ was crucified and then rose again on the 3rd day, so too will @realdonaldtrump.”

While Trump supporters may choose to ignore the glaring hypocrisy of comparing their beloved leader to Jesus Christ, the rest of us can’t help but laugh at the ridiculousness of it. Jesus Christ was a peaceful leader who was wrongfully persecuted and killed for his beliefs. To compare Trump’s arrest for alleged hush money payments to cover up an affair with a porn star to the suffering of Jesus Christ is nothing short of laughable.

The irony of this comparison is further compounded by the fact that many of these same Republicans have long opposed any legislation that seeks to benefit the LGBTQ+ community or to protect women from discrimination. To suggest that Trump’s alleged involvement in a hush money payment is somehow similar to the suffering of Jesus Christ is not only absurd, but it is also insulting(do they really think we are this stupid?) and hypocritical.

Trump’s supporters may continue to draw comparisons between the President’s plight and the suffering of Jesus Christ, but the rest of us can see right through this thinly veiled attempt to portray Trump as a saintly figure.

This comparison is nothing more than an attempt to paper over the scandals and controversies that have surrounded Trump throughout his presidency and to distract from the real issues of his alleged criminal behavior. It’s time for Trump’s supporters to take a step back and recognize the hypocrisy of their actions.
