The Donald and God
Let’s get something straight. Commuting the sentence of convicted felon, Roger Stone was not an act of righteousness on the part of our heathen commander-in-chief. Donald Trump freed Roger Stone as a reward for not telling the whole truth to investigators and to Congress.
The information he defiantly withheld was detrimental to Trump and may have changed the outcome of numerous legal cases. Like a mobster in a Scorsese film, Stone stayed mum and didn’t rat on the Don. He knew he’d be rewarded.
Trump’s rationalizations for the commutation are pathetic, evoking witch hunts, Mueller and Obama. But Stone crossed the line when he revealed his take on things in an interview.
“Like God, President Trump was merciful,” Stone said. Trump was a man of “enormous fairness and compassion” and would lift the burden Stone was facing.
If either of these men actually have a soul, they should prepare to face their maker one day for this one. Explaining to St. Peter at the pearly gates how Donald Trump is in any way “like God” would be a monologue I’d love to hear. Jarold Wright Santa Rosa
