Yesterday, fired FBI Director James Comey was interviewed by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
In the interview, Comey said, among other things which grabbed headlines overnight, that Donald Trump is “morally unfit to be president."
Comey’s blockbuster book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, will be released tomorrow. It’s been a bestseller for weeks now.
As most people know, just about the only television that Trump watches is Fox and Friends. He holds no brief for ABC, and certainly not CNN. When the mainstream media cross him, he tells his senior aides that the First Amendment should be repealed.
His top fixer, Michael Cohen, is the subject of an intense search warrant approved by a federal judge. That led to a total meltdown in the Oval Office, with pundits all over our nation anticipating a complete implosion.
Associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was with Trump after the Stephanopoulos interview when Chief of Staff John Kelly briefed him on those matters closest and dearest to him, namely, whether anybody likes him, as well as the moral morass, much worse than anybody’s Swamp, into which he wades every day.
“John, send my best helicopter down to Lynchburg to get Jerry Falwell Junior here right away.”
Moments later, Falwell, the president of Liberty University, the world’s largest evangelical university, walked into the Oval Office and genuflected.
Falwell is the son of the late Jerry Falwell Senior, who founded the Moral Majority.
“Jerry,” Trump began, “that lying cur, Comey, says I’m morally unfit to be sitting here.”
“So I’m appealing to you as one of my best political and personal friends, to tell me what I already know, namely, that I am morally pure.”
Falwell invited Trump to pray with him.
“Lord, we beseech you to look deep into your servant Donald’s heart.”
“Cleanse him and heal him, and bring all his enemies to the ground.”
“Smite all who oppose him, smite everyone who denounces him.”
Falwell’s prayer went on interminably for another 15 minutes.
“Jerry, I’m gonna make you the first Secretary of Religion.”
“There is no wall between Church and State.”
“The only Wall I’m interested in is my Wall on our southern border.”
Smiling beatifically, Falwell immediately met with Trump’s legislative liaison, Marc Short, to begin preparations for his confirmation hearing.
