President Donald Trump is “very much against kneeling in general,” press secretary Kayleigh McEnany stated Monday. That was a head-spinner for those who hang around kneeling in holy places and at gravesides and memorials.
McEnany was describing Trump’s opposition to professional athletes who take a knee prior to sports occasions to object bigotry and authorities cruelty, however the devil remains in the information of bad phrasing. Those– like Trump– who invest little to no time at all kneeling at religious services most likely didn’t recognize how obliviously ill-mannered McEnany’s statement sounded.
Twitter critics were just too delighted to point it out:
Enjoyable Truth for the “Evangelical” President:
Kneeling is motivated in Bible over 32 times in the Holy Bible, and People that Practice Christianity have actually been Kneeling to Hope considering that the Birth of Jesus.

Is that why he does not go to Church?

So, I think he’s never ever been to a service at St. John’s throughout the street or if he went, he didn’t hope. When hoping, episcopalians kneel.

Trump likes to irritate Episcopalians!

So what you’re stating is he does not hope?

Which is why he just curtsied and bowed for the King of Saudi Arabia.

Waiting to hear the evangelicals spin this.
