Donald Trump shared a Truth Social post comparing him to Jesus Christ.

The post said the former president is "second greatest" only to Jesus.

Trump's supporters, and even Trump himself, have made similar comparisons before.

Former President Donald Trump shared a post on his Truth Social account on Friday, declaring him as "second" only to Jesus.

The post by Truth Social user @austinnegrete said: "Jesus is the Greatest. President @realDonaldTrump is the second greatest."

It accompanied an image of a painting of Jesus by artist Dan Wilson.

Trump "ReTruthed," or reposted, the Jesus comparison to his 4.1 million Truth Social followers.

It isn't the first time that the former president's supporters have compared him to Jesus.

In 2019, Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk claimed Jesus was treated more fairly before his crucifixion than Trump was treated throughout his first impeachment.

"When Jesus was falsely accused of treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers," said Loudermilk during a debate on the House floor, per TIME magazine. "During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus than the Democrats have afforded this President in this process."

In the same year, The Washington Post reported that white, conservative evangelicals who approved of Trump's performance as president promoted the idea that he was heaven-sent.

Trump has made these grand proclamations himself. In August 2019, Trump told reporters in reference to trade with China: "I am the chosen one." He also shared tweets describing him as the "King of Israel" and "the second coming of God."

And in October 2020, per the Independent, he claimed to have had a conversation where somebody told him he was the most famous person in the world. Trump told his supporters in North Carolina that Jesus Christ was actually more famous than him.

Insider contacted Trump's post-presidency office for comment on Saturday morning but did not immediately receive a response.

That is the key sentence in this article.

Just look at Democrat's outrage over Trump comparing himself to Jesus.  The odd thing is that Trump is being crucified because he is not religious enough while the original messiah was crucified for being too religious.  And Democrats have cheered both crucifixions.  

Looks like Democrats plan on griping about Trump for the next 2,000 years just has they have the original.

You seem to think it is reasonable to compare Trump to Jesus. Seek professional help.

Comparing Trump to Jesus isn't any worse than comparing Trump to Hitler.  Both are gross over exaggerations.  

The most apt comparison is between Trump and Clinton.  Which is the lesser evil is strictly a partisan point of view.  That's why the 2016 election was such a stinker.  Nothing 'good' could have come out of the 2016 election.

No way, Jesus never saw 34 and Trump is 76.

Non-sequiturs?  How so?  That requires more explanation than an idle allegation.

Non-sequitars, Nerm. Got nothing to do with the "second coming of Jesus" remark.

But it does have something to do with a left biased publication reporting Trump's comment for the purpose of fostering outrage in a left leaning audience.

BTW, Trump didn't make a 'second coming of Jesus' comparison.  Might try reading that again.

I stand corrected. "second ONLY to Jesus" remark. Now, . . .do you admit making a non-sequitar pass to others not involved with the comment in any way?

Surely you have heard the one about getting juice from a turnip? One can't report what is not stated accurately or falsely if Donald would keep his big, loud, gross utterances away from microphones, cameras, and printable media! 

The question you should ask is this: Did Donald Trump say what is attributed to him?

If so, then you should deliver your 'outrage' or direct your praise toward Donald (alone)!

According to the seeded article, Trump DID NOT claim he was second to Jesus.  @austinnegrete made that post.  Trump only reposted @austinnegrete's post.  (I did suggest you read it again.)

As I stated, the seeded article is from a left leaning publication and is written to foster outrage by a left leaning audience.  That's fairly obvious by the author describing Trump reposting someone else's post as "retruthed".

So, is my 'conclusion', according to your allegation of non sequitur, unfounded?

Reposted? WHY THE "h" would Donald do that?! Not as a sign of his disapproval, of course! And we all know (better) that Donald does not let any perceived slight get a 'pass'. So, it is a given that Trump 'wishes' he'd said it. Consequently, he indirectly SAYS it:

Case in point:

Donald Trump shared a Truth Social post comparing him to Jesus Christ.

The post said the former president is "second greatest" only to Jesus.

Trump's supporters, and even Trump himself, have made similar comparisons before.

You can stop with the denial/s anytime now. Busted by Donald—himself.

Jesus, never sought idol worship. If (MAGA) evangelicals were any kind of sincere people they would upbraid their 'foolish leader' for his remarkably dense hubris.

Since we're discussing the comparison, I'm curious about who the other two are who will be crucified with him.
