Jenna Ellis, a former senior legal adviser to Donald Trump, was taken to Sunday school after claiming on Twitter that “nobody adores” the ex-president.
Ellis made the bold statement after MSNBC’s Joy Reid tweeted that Trump’s “idolatrous” worshipers would have their thoughts on Biblical Christianity “taken with a huge pound of salt by people reasonably familiar with the gospel.”
Ellis, who aided the former president in his efforts to overturn the 2020 election result because he lost, replied to Reid:
Ellis’ message was quickly associated with a series of startling reminders.
Critics recalled the golden statue of Trump at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, the time Trump signed Bibles during a church visit, and how he, his allies and evangelicals claimed that he was sent by God.
Others mockingly shared Trump’s right-wing memes as a deity and suggested that his supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan.6 were also under the then president’s holy bondage.
