'Fox and Friends' Praises Video of Rick Perry Saying Donald Trump Is the 'Chosen One' by God

'Fox and Friends' Praises Video of Rick Perry Saying Donald Trump Is the 'Chosen One' by God

That was weird.

After being implicated as one of the key players in President Donald Trump's corrupt dealings with Ukraine, Energy Secretary Rick Perry—who intends to leave his post at the end of the year—went on Fox and Friends to praise his boss.

Things got weird, however, when praise turned to worship.


Watch below.

Perry recounted an interaction with the President in the interview:

“I said, 'Mr. President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one and I said, 'You were.’ I said, 'If you're a believing Christian, you understand God's plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government."

After the clip, Fox & Friends weekend host Pete Hegseth continued the idolatry:

"[Christian Trump supporters] hear the attacks from the media about who he is and his background and they dismiss it and say, 'God has used imperfect people forever because we're all imperfect,' but what he's withstood is really unlike any other mortal could understand."

The deification of Trump isn't new. As Perry alluded to, Trump previously referred to himself as the "chosen one," though insisted he was being sarcastic. Fox host Jeanine Pirro called Trump "almost superhuman."

But people on Twitter claimed Trump was nothing but a false prophet.

Perry's comments are an about face from what he said of Trump during the 2015 campaign:

"A man too arrogant, too self-absorbed, to seek God's forgiveness is precisely the type of leader John Adams prayed would never occupy the White House."

White Evangelicals remain among Trump's strongest demographics.
