GQ says Trump elec­tion proves God not so om­nipo­tent af­ter all

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Ken Shep­herd

The Almighty doesn’t have the pull he used to, the edi­tors at GQ mag­a­zine are com­plain­ing, list­ing God at the bot­tom of their an­nual cheeky “Least In­flu­en­tial” list.

This year the list was pref­aced with, what else, a com­plaint about Don­ald Trump.

“Trump didn’t as­cend to the high­est of­fice in the land on his own now, did he? No, my man got a lot of help along the way from a num­ber of boobs, liars, and hap­less id­iots,” com­plained GQ. “With­out them, the most ridicu­lous thing ever to hap­pen never would have hap­pened.”

GQ then com­menced its list — say­ing it is given “in no par­tic­u­lar or­der” — start­ing with dis­graced for­mer Rep. Anthony Weiner, in­clud­ing the woman who wasn’t up to the easy task of de­feat­ing Mr. Trump (that’d be Hil­lary Clin­ton) and ul­ti­mately end­ing up with the good Lord him­self.

“Yes, God. Are you up there, God?” GQ asked, be­fore bel­low­ing out in all capital let­ters. “What the f—?

“We need You. We were al­ready tee­ter­ing on the brink of self-im­mo­la­tion, and that’s when things were go­ing well. Now we have all this to deal with,” the mag­a­zine railed. “We’re not gonna make it if You just stay up there in the clouds play­ing backgammon all day and what not. We need help.”
