it doesn’t even need the photoshop like the second one, I mean just look at that, who scowls at a publicity shot in a church? and it looks like Melania is having a botox failure (maybe trump too and also his hair is suddenly just missing on the side, just a poof on top)
not photoshoped, just embiggened, yikes:
It’s not that.
What he is doing is sending a signal to his hardcore base that this is a Holy War, and he is on the side of God and Righteousness.
I’m not joking. This is how the Q fanatics are interpreting these religious-themes photos. Do not make fun of or take this photo lightly. This is a very dangerous thing Trump is doing - stoking his extremist supporters to commit themselves to violence in his name.
They sure do look like they hate being near each other.
if that prenup ever leaks it’s going to be -fascinating- I mean imagine what he’s got in there after so many wives/kids, there is probably a mandatory living requirement and can they legally bind sex? eww
Never heard this before, and Wikipedia doesn’t say so. Are you perhaps thinking of Ivanka, who converted before marrying?
You may be thinking of Ivanka. Easy to get the wife/daughter relationships confused in that family considering how frequently he infantilizes his wife and sexualizes his daughter.
Did they have to pepper spray everyone out of the church first?
I applaud the idea but there’s no way I’m willing to spend the time it would take staring at those two hideous people.
Are they photoshopped in there? Something is off. The lighting on Trump looks not right.
Also, I’m no expert, but this looks like an Orthodox facility, something eastern European. Not the sort of denomination church I would expect Mr. Trump to partake in… His wife might feel at home though.
But yeah… based on the lighting, smells funny.
Trump’s good lady doesn’t look very happy these days. Can’t say as I blame her one little bit!
At a certain point “appealing to his base” might be all he has left, the way he’s going.
Which I find almost comical, since they’ll vote for him even if he starts serving boiled kitten at White House functions.
Anyone know what church this was taken at?
Yes. As absurdist and dunderheaded at we see his antics, his core conservative christian supporters see it differently. The Atlantic has a nice article on how they see it, and if you go to right wing sites like the gateway pundit, (visit at your own risk, I will not link there) the adulation of his action is disturbing.
To them, this is a holy war, and the believe that this man is the Anointed One.
Welcome to the Worst year Ever.
And yet, the downside risk for ⊥rump is minuscule.
If there is a single person who was a supporter before this picture, but this was their breaking point, I’d genuinely like to meet them.
Gotta get Melania in there. It helps the Evangelicals forget about how he dicked around with porn stars while his wife was nursing that other kid he has, raped his first wife, sexually assaulted many others. Bragged about it. Bragged about wanting to f his daughter, And we’re not even into Epstien-level stuff yet.
But sure. He’s the moral candidate in this election. And churches are wondering why their attendance is going down…
If I’ve learned anything from that nineties HBO docudrama where Liberace gets sued by his ex-houseboy, it’s that such an agreement would amount to a contract for prostitution and therefore be legally unenforceable. Although, as far as straight marriage is concerned, who knows.
