Rick Joyner Says Donald Trump ‘Is One of the Most Honest People I’ve Met’

Rick Joyner needs to pick up and crack open that Bible of his more often. We’ve heard a lot of crazy things said by the Religious Right in defense of their support for Donald Trump, but Joyner’s latest escapade is jaw-dropping.

“He is an honest man. He is one of the most honest people I’ve met because he tells you what he really thinks. There [are] no facades there. He is not hiding anything.”

Watch courtesy of Right Wing Watch:

Joyner also claimed Trump has a “remarkable fear of the Lord,” but if so, it is apparently in complete ignorance of God’s prohibition on lying.

Just to clarify, this is Donald Trump we are talking about, who, during the campaign, easily told anywhere from 20 to 37 lies a day, and later even reached 40 likes in a single day.

Toronto Star fact-checker Daniel Dale counted, from mid-September till the campaign’s close, a total of “560 false claims, or a neat 20 per day.”

Trump is the man who lies 9 out of every 10 times he opens his mouth. At one point, the Clinton campaign released 19 – that’s NINETEEN – pages of Trump lies. Nineteen pages.

PolitiFact gave Donald Trump the 2015 Lie of the Year Award with the proviso that he lied so often they couldn’t settle on just one lie: “To the candidate who says he’s all about winning, PolitiFact designates the many campaign misstatements of Donald Trump as our 2015 Lie of the Year.”

The Religious Right is in even more trouble than we thought if Donald Trump is the most honest man Joyner has met because he also gave us this whopper:

Having previously claimed billionaire Donald Trump was like impoverished and illiterate Galilean fisherman St. Peter, Joyner has now upped the ante by comparing him all all Jesus’ disciples:

“If you look at the disciples that Jesus chose, they were all Donald Trump. Every one of them were Donald Trumps.”

The problem, of course, is that Jesus’ disciples were all poor Galileans, the type of people Jesus said would inherit the kingdom of God, whereas rich people like Trump could not more get into the kingdom of God than a camel could through the eye of a needle.

This is the guy fellow billionaire Mark Cuban called a “Master of headline porn.” And Rick Joyner is saying is the most honest man he has met, and who is comparing him to Jesus’ disciples.

Joyner once said that our “republic can’t last much longer” and that only a military takeover can save us as if a military coup can do anything other than destroy a republic.

Given those very low criteria, however, he has since decided Donald Trump can do the trick. Except for one little problem, and that is that Trump is going to have the same effect on the republic as a military coup.
