  1. He’d be the chosen one in a lineup of suspected rapists.

  2. The guy who has never earned anything on his own, who has broken multiple commandments, who would rather build a wall than be a good Samaritan, is the chosen one?

    • He may have respected his rich father. I don’t think he’s actually killed someone. And…
      That’s it. 2/10. He breaks other commandments left and right. He lies, steals, swears, commits adultery, worships his own images, golfs on weekends…

    • AL- BOT Well said!!!

  3. Yeah…Putin “chose” trump to launder his money…… and then made him president.
    Putin must be laughing himself to sleep every night.

  4. I thought he’s the Anti-Christ mentioned by Nostradamus.

    • @James Soltis lol!

    • @Maha Tiki Cat so do you..

    • @Maha Tiki Cat I believe in God and have read the bible, so I have lots of expertise to draw from. Yet I denounce the corruption of God and Christianity that has happened by Evangelicals and others. They have no concept of the message of the bible and only care about money and power. So do not judge, lest ye shall be judged by God. And yes, that also applies to me. I’m very judgemental of Trump and Evangelicals. But then I believe they worship false idols.

  5. Remember when Trump looked up to the sky and said “i am the chosen one” then claimed it was a joke when he received backlash? I knew he would go back to this “chosen one” bs. He probably asked Perry to say this.

    • He probably watched Trump save a War Criminal and decided his best chance at a pardon is to flatter Trump. Love to know what Putin did to fluff Trumps ego, wait maybe I don’t…

  6. So were Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot also then God’s ‘Chosen One,’ I see.

    • So was Charlie Manson…

    • @Some Person nothing good has ever come about as a result of someone saying, and others believing that particularly charged phrase, which trump has slipped in, in public, at least once before, as well. They are a cult, and his (trumps and his high priests) words, have, as we’ve seen, no matter how unreal or unbased in fact, have already totally substituted for consensus reality in his supporters minds, who believe his every utterance, and cynically used by half the elected officials in our country, who know better, to their own ends.

    As Christopher Hitchens said, Religion Poisons EVERYTHING! Especially politics!

    • Yet another case of republicans claiming to be “patriots” but ignoring the founding fathers, who clearly said separation of church and state…

    When people make any kind of claim on a deity, I *know* they’re full of crap.

    the chosen one is a Russian money launderer.

  10. Rick Perry has Never been accused of being the brightest ‘bulb’ in the pack!


  12. “The Cult of The Chosen One.” No thank you. Perry, enjoy the orange kool-aid.

  13. There’s another Christianity argument that hasn’t been made here: Humbleness. Trump is NOT humble.

    • Then how many Christians church on Trump side. If this was medieval Trump side want to start another holy crusade.

    • We have free will whatever we do with that…. that is that is our cross to bear….

    • @Waffle Fries —- Free Will is the argument peasants make to justify the atrocities dealt by those in power. If your god knows everything that will happen and what’s in men’s hearts, etc, then there is no point since everything is already predestined. The only other argument is why such evils as birth defects, cancer, genocide, etc are even allowed. That would make your god a monster of the highest order.

  14. WTF, WTF, WTF, WTF! Soon Perry will be an “Indicted” one

  15. More like the spawn of Satan!

    Perry is looking for a pardon. He’s about to get indicted too.

    • R u a devil disciple he is more a devil. If u had read the bible there is not a name it and claim it religion. Did this religion also tell u to take your buddy to Ukraine and make him a CEO. So u can keep the money in white supreme men court.

  17. This one of the most terrifying concepts I have ever heard.

  18. Jesus Christ in heaven it’s the anti-christ literally

  19. “Chosen by God” – How many of the most evil people in history have claimed this mantle for themselves??

  20. Perry will become the “chosen one” when hes in prison with some homies.
