LOL: Trump Slams Pete Buttigieg For His Faux Religious Displays

(Liberty Bell) – During an event with some of his many ardent evangelical supporters, President Donald Trump very rightly mocked 2020 Democratic candidate, Pete Buttigieg, for putting on a seemingly false air of religious spirit since he decided to run for president.

He also took the opportunity to quip yet again that the 37-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, resembled Alfred E. Newman, the cover character from Mad Magazine.

“I see Alfred E. Newman comes out. He’s trying to pretend he is very religious,” Trump said.

POTUS also poked fun at Buttigieg’s unpronounceable last name, saying “nobody can pronounce his name, so they call him Mayor Pete.”

“Boot-edge-edge,” Trump continued. “And all of a sudden, he’s become extremely religious. This happened about two weeks ago.”

“I really do believe we have God on our side. I believe that … or there would have been no way we could have won, right?” he said.

Hours later, the triggered Buttigieg responded on Twitter, defensively insisting that “God does not belong to a political party”:

Trump’s comments were beyond appropriate considering Buttigieg politicized the church shooting in West Settlement, Texas last weekend to push for gun control, in spite of the fact that a lawfully armed parishioner was able to take out the shooter.

“We are the only developed country where the idea of a shootout in a church is even conceivable,” he said. “What do you suppose God thinks of that?”

I don’t know, former Mayor Pete, what did God think of the Israelites killing their enemies by the tens upon tens of thousands all throughout the Old Testament, very often at God’s behest?

Breitbart notes that:

Buttigieg was baptized a Catholic but gravitated to the Episcopal church, and after he was elected mayor of South Bend, Indiana, he married his husband, Chasten, at the Cathedral of St. James Episcopal Church in South Bend.

He told CNN he was first “reluctant” to talk about religion, citing the Bible about Jesus telling his followers not to pray like the “hypocrites” standing in synagogues and street corners.

Since announcing his campaign for president, however, Buttigieg has made a point of talking about religion, urging Christians to abandon President Trump and the religious right supporting Republicans.

“Christianity to me is about humility. It’s about love,” he said in an interview in April. “If we want to put those values into political practice, at least by my lights, they lead us in a very progressive direction.”

Buttigieg began his campaign attacking Vice President Mike Pence as the “cheerleader of the porn star presidency” and suggested that he abandoned his Christian faith.

“Is it that he stopped believing in Scripture when he started believing in Donald Trump? I don’t know,” he said in March.

Buttigieg also challenged Trump’s faith on the campaign trail.

“It’s hard to look at his actions and believe that they are the actions of somebody who believes in God,” he said in April, referring to the president.

Buttigieg also condemned Republicans for using religion as a “cudgel” against Democrats, stating that if God belonged to a political party, he “can’t imagine it would be the one that sent the current president into the White House.”

In July, Buttigieg scorned “so-called conservative Christian” Republicans in Congress for opposing a guaranteed national $15 minimum wage. He has also used Scripture to argue in favor of welcoming more illegal immigrants into the country.

Furthermore, Buttigieg cited Scripture in September to defend his belief in the unfettered right to an abortion, even immediately before childbirth.

  1. It’s Pete Bootyitchitch because your booty would itch too if you had some guy messing around down there. How can anyone claim to be a Christian and yet support and push for the murder of babies, born or unborn? Sick, sick people.

  2. Sandra Lee Smith :
    For years I had problems with that (judge) article. Then it was pointed out by a very learned man. If I see you committing a sin, and I report it as exactly as I saw it, I am not judging I am simply reporting what I saw. One needs to be sure to keep the facts straight in that reporting though.

  3. A lot of good comments here. Many know that God often chooses people to do something He wants done. The chosen may or may not know that. The chosen may or may not be a confessing Christian, but does know what is set for him/her to do. It really is not for us to judge, God has reserved that function to Himself. The Holy Bible is a book of much information. Much is good advice, but one needs to read, think, and ask Gods will in much of it. What is your opinion of Judas selling out Yeshua for 30 pieces of silver? Now remember if Judas had not done that, God would have assigned another. WHY? Well to become the Savior, with the right to forgive OUR sins, Yeshua (AKA Jesus) had to pay that terrible price, per agreement between Him and His Father (God). It was planned long before Yeshua’s birth into a human body. All this may not make sense to a human mind, but actually reading the Holy Bible, combined with prayer about the subject will help explain a lot of it.

  4. This country was started with a belief in the morals represented by the 10 commandments.
    Everything in the socialist left’s platform is the complete opposite of that philosophy.
    The basic planks of the dim party are the very antithesis of basic human morality. In short, they are EVIL.

  5. It’s easy for the so called democrats (actuality ) socialists to make that statement.They don’t believe in God anyway just like the old Soviet Union . I don’t really see AOC attending Christmas Eve Mass do you. When a country loses it’s moral compass it’s in trouble. The Democrats / socialists & atheists have been hard at work here in the US for years on that. they perverted the separation of church and state. The founding fathers simply meant by separation of church and state the neither the Catholic Church nor the church or England or any other Christian religion would be the official religion of the US. the super majority of the founding fathers were Really religious men. Im fairly certain that General Washington prayed to God before he crossed the Delaware.

  6. I can confidently say from what I have witnessed for the past 3 years pertaining to the Democrat party Politicians in Washington DC that really would want nothing to do with any of you evil, lying, Barring Falce witness before God, Treasonous, Democrats. Sham on you all.

  7. What does God think of a shootout in a church…? Well, I would guess he was happy the bad guy was shot dead in 6 seconds and he wasn’t permitted to kill the entire group. What do you think God thinks of you smooching pickles Pete?

    • And they say people have a hard pronouncing that slime balls last name. I think it’s
      easy BUTPLUG P-E-T-E-R-B-U-T-P-L-U-G

  8. There is NO such thing as two men or two women being married, in Gods eyes. It’s male and female ONLY that can marry. Maybe he should try going to a church that tells him this truth.

  9. We’ve ALREADY had fudge packers in the rainbowhouse, so I don’t think we’ll be seeing YOU in the Whitehouse EVER! Deal with that and DROP OUT!

  10. I have always thought that Buttgagag will be the nominee. And if Buttgagag picks a seemingly centrist running mate, like Sherrod Brown of Ohio, those two cloaked commies could give Trump a run for office.

  11. His first name is Peter and his last name begins with “Butt”. Wow. His parents must have been prophets. Good call, Mr. and Mrs. B.

    Hey, Peter Butt… if you want to quote scripture, there are some dandy ones in Leviticus. Just run a search for “ABOMINATION” and you’ll find everything you need to know.

    • also romans 1: 21-32; 1 corinthians 6:9-10; galations 5:8-9 i think not sure but its in the chapter; 1 timothy 1:9-10 also revelation 20:8. leviticus 18 and 20:13

  12. Buttigieg is a valedictorian of the Jesuits. What “religious” order is at the forefront of the corruption in the Vatican, the schism, heresy and apostasy in the Church? Need we say more?

  13. Boot-edge-edge said “God does not belong to a political party.” In one sense, and only as we humanly understand politics, that is true, but in another sense, and speaking of the spiritual world, GOD DOES BELONG TO THE RIGHT.

    • Mayor Pete, Read Leviticus 18:22 and you will understand how The Lord Almighty feels about your sin. God loves you, however your sin is an Abomination to him. Also the murder of babies in the womb comes under sin and against the Ten Commandments , Gods Laws!! So when you say God doesn’t not have a political affiliation , you are right. Do you think for a minute God condones the lying cheating murdering stealing and the rape and molestation of children and young women, maybe Allah does, but not the Great I am , The Lord Almighty. Read the Bible, it is not a book of rules , but a revelation of who God is.

    • I think you have that backwards; Yhwh God belongs to no one and nothing; those who CHOOSE the right belong to Him. Those, on the other (left) hand, well, Jesus clearly stated what happens there…

    • The bible is not the religion, it is a history of the religion. When will people get that right. It is a guideline for how to live not a book you can pick and choose from to make it work for you to get what you want. Buttigieg should read it before he starts justifying his liberal stance on anything the bible says. Most of what he says is not in the bible the way he said it was. He needs to get a clue and not defame the bible with his leftwing lies. He just picks and chooses the lines he wants and not tell them in the context of truth.

    • All regressive liberals have mental problems other wise they would have morals,ethics and obey the rule of laws and rules.Socialism and communism are Anti God and supposedly godless.Except that they believe they are gods unto themselves.Their government is god and will fix all.With all the evidence of the wreck of Socialism a person would have to have a blind heart and mind to follow this ideology

  14. Although President Trump apparently solidly supports Christians/Christianity, I wonder if he truly is a confessed ‘Christian’ himself? Dunno. Guess his actions speak louder than words anyway… I just wish he would knock it off with his silly tweets that make him look petty and small.

    • Trump will NEVER get a fair analysis with the major media outlets, the Hollywood elitists, or 46+% of the populace. Twitter is his only current known source to get his thoughts and actions out to ALL of the populace at ANT TIME OF THE DAY. So, hate his tweets or like ’em, it is what it is, he is not going to change his messaging because people may not like his brazen approach. Actions speak much louder than words and his actions the last 3 years have been quite beneficial for the vast majority of ALL “Americans” no matter what their skin color.

    • IF he has, in fact come to Jesus, it seems to have been fairly recent, and is, therefore, a work in progress, like the rest of us. He grew up in PCUSA, so his understanding of “Christian” as well as redemption, repentance, salvation, sanctification, etc, may be corrupted by their Calvinist, and modem leftist, teachings both.

    • He has to tweet because the media twists his words to mean something else. When he tweets, we know he said what he said.

  15. ISAIAH 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

    HIV is chastening of the Lord, and the Lord chastens those He loves. David said it was good that he was afflicted so as to learn the Lords ways. The Lord Jesus told me this and He also said that if they refuse to repent of their sin then death will turn out to be His wrath against them. I DID NOT WRITE THE BOOK CALLED THE BIBLE, BUT THE ONE THAT WROTE IT IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL TODAY WHETHER THEY CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IT OT NOT!!!

    • I agree with Sandra Lee Smith. President Trump may have recently in the last couple of years, given his heart to Christ, but spiritual growth takes time. I also agree that his tweets are his ONLY WAY OF SPEAKING DIRECTLY to us, we the people. In time, as God continues to grow and mature him as a Christian, he will begin tweeting in a way that isn’t as blatant as he has been, but I certainly don’t fault him for anything he’s said. It’s been true whether his delivery was crass or not. Everyone , like EVERY SINGLE OTHER CANDIDATE-especially Buttigieg Can try to twist Scripture to accommodate his agenda but I’d sure like to know what Scripture he used to defend full term abortion. Not to forget, as others mentioned, he lost all credibility when he introduced his husband…not that he had any, anyway. I am finding that a majority of Americans get their information and make their decisions for voting in 11/20 based on the media! God help us educate the ignorant people that that believe all of that Buttigieg bullisheig!!!!!

  16. The real issue is that every one of the dem candidates has lime jello for a spine.Not one of them does anything but pander to someone. Their views shift any time the wind does.

  17. If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.
    (Leviticus 20:13)

    1Do not judge, or you will be judged. 2For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.…
    Matt 7:1

    Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?
    Luke 6:41

    • William: I have NO idea how that could be warped into anything but what it says, but then I see what leftists claim the Constitution says [written so that it would be understood by EVERY citizen].

    • That “judge not” passage is likely THE most misquoted and misunderstood verse in the entire 66 books of the Bible! That verse applies to your brother Christian, and doesn’t prohibit “judging” (discernment of) sin entirely, only doing so toward your brother in Christ, while you are guilty of that same sin unrepented in your own life. It prohibits the hypocrisy we so often see paraded in our modern society, as the 3rd verse you quote speaks to more clearly.
