Prayer Is Personal

Just like Black History Month and everything other damned thing in the world, Trump was able to make the National Prayer Breakfast all about himself:

I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Not just because it's what Trump does, but because Republicans have had a history of using the National Prayer Breakfast as a platform:

On February 7, 2013, Baltimore neurosurgeon Ben Carson criticized President Barack Obama’s policies on healthcare, taxation, and the national debt in a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C.
President Obama was sitting a few feet away.
Conservative commentator Cal Thomas criticized Carson’s comments for being rude and inappropriate. The National Prayer Breakfast is one of the few nonpolitical events in Washington, D.C., Thomas said. It is “supposed to bridge divides,” he added, “not widen them.”

But those "rude and inappropriate" comments ended up with Carson becoming first, a leading presidential candidate, and now, the first brain surgeon to become director of, um, Housing and Urban Development.

I wake up a lot of mornings thinking that the world isn't making sense to me... and I've come to realize it's just because, well, it actually doesn't make sense. And this is why I drink.
