Now my little one has become something great that I did not expect … thanks to him I win and live very well.

    • GOP Sen. David Perdue: Pray that Obama’s ‘days be few’
      David Perdue, R-Ga., one of very few Republicans who has consistently defended Donald Trump’s nomination, drew swift condemnation from Senate Democrats after asking voters to pray for President Barack Obama to suffer on the way out of the White House.

      “I think we’re called to pray for our country, our leaders — and yes, even our president,” said Perdue at Friday morning’s session of the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s annual policy conference. “I think we should pray for Barack Obama, but we need to be very specific. We should pray like Psalm 109:8 says: Let his days be few, and let another take his office.”

      ADVERTISEMENT

      Perdue seemed to be telling a joke — he started his next sentence with “in all seriousness” — but Psalm 109 has repeatedly gotten Republicans in trouble during the Obama era. Bumper stickers reading “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8” appeared during the first year of his presidency, and from time to time, government officials have apologized or been laid off after citing it.

      The problem is in the rest of the Psalm, which is aimed at “the wicked and the deceitful.” The verses right after 109:8 delineate a series of curses:

      “Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.

      “Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.”

      After Perdue’s comments circulated on social media, the office of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., condemned them.

      “If Republicans are still wondering why Donald Trump is their nominee, look no further than today’s Faith and Freedom conference where a sitting Republican Senator left the impression he was praying for the death of President Obama and then the Republican Leader followed him on stage and did not condemn him,” said Reid’s communications director Kristen Orthman.

      Megan Whittemore, a spokeswoman for Perdue, said the senator told the Faith & Freedom audience that, “We are called to pray for our country, for our leaders and for our president.”

      Perdue “in no way wishes harm toward our president, and everyone in the room understood that,” Whittemore said.

      A spokesman for McConnell said the senator was not on stage when Perdue made the comment.

      At the White House, spokesman Josh Earnest said that “as Sen. Perdue considers whether an apology is appropriate, there are a variety of other scriptures he might consult.”

    • .You are being way too kind sir. As the “1st act” on stage/stooge at another Trump Covid circus these comments were unconscionable. For a guy named “Sonny” he doesn’t seem very “BRIGHT” to me. Sonny Perdue, ugh, sounds like a chicken farmer from Georgia who raises “peeps” for Easter baskets. Wonder why Trump didn’t mock him for his obvious “disability”.

    Purdue sounds so stupid. He acted so childish and foolish. He is a total embarrassment to his constituents. Vote him out.

  19. He called fauci a disaster YET used him in a recent campaign commercial!smh.all I want for Christmas is A new president🎁🎄🧓, fr,fr
