While the pro-Trump religious cult is a fairly new phenomenon in American politics, Michele Bachmann was an early indicator during the Tea Party days of what was to come. Today, some of her rhetoric sounds just as crazy as religious lunatics such as Jim Bakker and she’s not showing any signs of slowing down, as evidenced by her latest comments regarding how she sees President Trump and his supposed godly mission.
During an appearance on the American Pastors Network last week, the former Minnesota GOP congresswoman said that Christians should continue to lift Trump up in prayer because she has “never seen a president under more attack.”
“I want your listeners to know, never before have I ever seen a more pro-Israel president,” Bachmann said in an audio clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “He is, without a doubt, the most biblical president I have ever seen. I’m going to repeat that: he is the most biblical president I have ever seen in what he does. His actions are remarkable and I would ask the audience to please pray for him continually.”
Thanks to “the demonic presence of so many evil things in our society,” Bachmann says that she’s never seen a president who’s “under attack” as Trump is.
“This is the fellow that God has made our president,” she continued. “He’s not only leading us in the United States to the greatest level of prosperity, to the greatest level of blessing toward Israel—he’s put us on a path of blessing like no other president ever. But because of the times we live in, we need him more than ever to listen to godly counsel, which he has. He has some of the most godly people surrounding him that I have ever seen, so he is deserving of that level of prayer and support and we need to provide that for him.”

Bachmann has made similar comments about Trump before. Earlier this year, she appeared on the Understanding the Times webcast and declared him 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.”
