Whenever Donald Trump stages one his traveling salvation shows, there is certain be an avalanche of flagrant falsehoods foisted on his gullible cult followers. For the most part they are regurgitations of the litany of lies that he has been unleashing for months and years. And that was true Saturday night in North Carolina where Trump dissembled manically about everything from the 2020 election to the border wall to gender studies and more.
The North Carolina rally was ostensibly an opportunity for Trump to pump up local Republican candidates like Ted Budd and Madison Cawthorn. But like all other Trump affairs, he made it about the only person he really cares about – himself. And on this occasion, like so many others, Trump portrayed himself in saintly terms for his worshipful disciples.
When Trump reached the part of his speech where he whined about being investigated for the multitude of crimes he has committed, he offered up praise for his own divine honesty. He began by complaining that…
“You know, you’ve been investigated years and years, millions and millions of pages of documents, they found nothing. […] I’ve been investigated by the Democrats more the Billy the Kid, Jessie James, and Al Capone combined.”
First of all, Trump’s assertion that nothing incriminating was found in the probes of his criminality is utterly delusional. There has been abundant evidence of his wrongdoing revealed in the Mueller Report, the House Select Committee on the January 6th insurrection, and in the investigations by both federal and state legal authorities. There’s a reason that Trump has ordered his minions to refuse to testify, and why those who showed up took the 5th Amendment.
What’s more, it’s notable that the former reality TV game show host is now putting himself in the company of notorious outlaws who, like him, got away with many of their crimes before justice eventually prevailed. Undaunted, Trump made sure to impress upon his flock that he is the infallible messiah that they have been waiting for. After griping pathetically about what a victim he is, Trump declared that that “I think I’m the most honest human being, perhaps, that God ever created.”

Really? The guy who has been documented to have told more than 30,000 lies during his occupation of the White House? The guy who has been promulgating the “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged,” despite being unable to produce a shred of evidence? The guy who has brazenly lied about the COVID pandemic, his numerous sexual assaults, his taxes, his unsavory and treasonous Russian associations (that he is still engaged in), and his role in inciting riots in Washington, D.C. to subvert democracy? That guy?
It’s astonishing that Trump can still pretend to be a holy messenger of God, and that his devotees can still buy it. After all, Trump once blasphemously claimed that “I don’t have to ask God for forgiveness. […] Why do I have to repent? Why do I have to ask for forgiveness if you’re not making mistakes?” And now he exalts himself as “the most honest human being that God ever created”? Is he serious? A “human being”? That still needs to be proven.
