Michele Bachmann: Trump has ‘greater moral clarity’ than any other president in history

In an appearance on Tony Perkins’ Washington Watch program this Tuesday, former Minnesota congresswoman and chairwoman of the Family Research Council, Michele Bachmann, discussed the Democrats’ “fake, phony” impeachment inquiry currently targeting President Trump.

“This is such a pathetic joke,” Bachmann said. “They have no candidate on the Democrat side for 2020 that they can get excited about. … They have no message, they have no record of accomplishment, they’re doing nothing in Congress, so this [impeachment] is the only thing they have to run on.”

“Our President of the United States — he is like nobody else I have ever met in my life,” she continued. “And he doesn’t scare easy and he’s gonna stare these guys down. They have no idea who they’re dealing with.”

According to Bachmann, Trump’s potential impeachment has “almost biblical implications.”

Wrapping up the segment, the two discussed the recent military operation that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and how it was strategically more significant than former President Obama’s accomplishment of taking out Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden — a feat that President Clinton failed to do.

“[Trump] understands the difference between good and evil,” Bachmann declared. “We have not seen a president with greater moral clarity than this president.”

This isn’t the first time Bachmann has made over-the-top adulatory pronouncements about Trump’s moral character. Earlier this year, she appeared on the Understanding the Times webcast and declared Trump to be the most “godly” and “biblical” president anyone has known.

“He is highly biblical and I would say to your listeners [that] we will, in all likelihood, never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetime,” she said. “So we need to be not only praying for him, we need to support him, in my opinion, in every possible way that we can.”

In 2017, she said that Trump has been “working nonstop” since his inauguration to make America great again in the eyes of God.

“He is unashamed in standing up for increasing an awareness of God in the United States,” she said. “He recognizes how important that is and that that is a basis of Western civilization … As a believer in Jesus Christ, I could not be more happy with what I am seeing coming out of the Trump White House. This is beyond my wildest expectations.”
