Trump supporter to C-SPAN host: ‘The government shutdown is good because it will bring Jesus back’

This Wednesday, someone called into C-SPAN with a slightly different take on President Trump’s partial government shutdown, saying that it’s actually a good thing because it will usher in the second coming of Christ.

Speaking to host John McArdle, a man identifying himself as “Scott” said that he couldn’t suggest a solution to the shutdown because he’s in support of it.

“I don’t really have a solution,” Scott said. “But I am in support of it because I’m waiting for the second coming. We just celebrated the first coming of Jesus. But Jesus is coming back.”

“And as crazy as the government is, it’s getting us closer,” Scott continued. “Now the solution to having a bill pay for the wall, Trump can do this by going after every business in America that got a tax break if they have any ties to any sister/baby companies off of them that have hired any illegal aliens in the past.”

“I want it shutdown because I can’t wait for when Jesus comes back and gets the righteous real people and takes them to heaven. And then we have a real big mess on this Earth.”

It was then that McArdle had heard enough.

“Got your point, Scott,” McArdle said before cutting Scott off.
