GOP Congressman Compares Trump To Jesus

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) recently drew a comparison between former President Trump to Jesus on Sunday while she spoke about his recent conviction for covering up a 2016 payment to a porn actor to help his electoral chances via The Hill.



“The Democrats and the fake news media want to constantly talk about, ‘Oh, President Trump is a convicted felon,’” Greene told Trump supporters during a rally in Las Vegas. “Well, you want to know something? The man that I worship is also a convicted felon, and he was murdered on a Roman cross.”

Trump was convicted last month after falsifying business records in a New York hush money trial, making him the first president in U.S. history to become a convicted felon. Trump has said he plans to appeal the conviction.

Greene previously compared the former President to Jesus before his arraignment in New York last year.

“Trump is joining some of the most incredible people in history being arrested today. Nelson Mandela was arrested, served time in prison. Jesus — Jesus was arrested and murdered by the Roman government,” Greene said in an interview with Right Side Broadcasting.

Republicans have blasted Trump’s conviction, and the Trump campaign has used it to inject new cash into his operations. The Trump team reported raising $35 million just hours after the verdict came in. Despite the conviction, polling largely shows Trump outperforming President Biden in many battleground states. Trump is scheduled to meet for a presentencing interview on Monday, with his sentencing set for next month, just days ahead of the Republican National Convention.
