In the wake of his landslide loss to his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, Donald Trump has lost his support in a slow but steady trickle. With each and every passing day, more and more members of the MAGA crowd are accepting the results of this presidential election, whether they like the outcome or not, and not only admitting that Trump lost to Biden, but encouraging him to accept that fact as well.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen this behavior out of a surprising few, including but not limited to Trump’s own Attorney General Bill Barr. However, I suspect that the most recent to turn their back on Donald’s narrative and encourage him to throw in the towel will truly hurt his feelings.
The 700 Club’s Pat Robertson joined the crowd this week when he admitted that even he thinks Trump has taken this thing too far with his “erratic” behavior, and that he needs to move on from his “alternate reality” and accept things for what they are, according to a report from Mediaite.
Back in October, just ahead of the election, Robertson, a prominent MAGA-supporting evangelist, declared that God told him Donald Trump would win the election. He used his platform to encourage Americans to go cast their votes before saying, “It’s going to lead to civil unrest, and then a war against Israel and so forth.”
Even after the election was officially called in favor of Joe Biden, Pat was clinging tight to the idea of a second Trump term, publicly declaring, “It isn’t over yet.”
But now it seems that even ole Pat Robertson has given up on the Trump pipe dream — and surprisingly enough, not just in regard to the 2020 election.
After The 700 Club aired a report about Donald Trump’s consideration of another presidential run in 2024, Robertson actually, publically said, “With all his talent and the ability to raise money and grow large crowds, the president still lives in an alternate reality. He really does. People say, ‘Well, he lies about this, that, and the other.’ No, he isn’t lying. To him, that’s the truth.”
The evangelist said that Trump shouldn’t make a second run in the next election, claiming that such a move by Trump would be a “mistake” and a “sideshow.”
He praised Trump for the economy but was sure to point out the false claims Donald has made over the years, saying, “He is very erratic and he’s fired people and he’s fought people and he’s insulted people… It’s a mixed bag.”
Earlier in the show, Robertson actually acknowledge Biden’s victory and went on to add later that it’s time to say to Trump, “you’ve had your day and it’s time to move on.”
He also stated in the program that he is alarmed by socialism in the US but that “We don’t need a sideshow for 2024.”
