Well, for starters, you really shouldn't be surprised. Trump is a wealthy politician. He is rich. He is a politician. It should not be a shock that he would refer to 3rd world countries as an aperture full of feces. If anything, GP is actually kind of thankful for the honesty about how he really feels. At least the public can see it. All of the other wealthy politicians inside and outside the beltway, both Democrat and Republican, probably say the same thing to each other at cocktail parties, but in private. So at least Trump is honest about his feelings. And GP truly does mean both parties. Grumpy Pastor couldn't imagine the people paying $200,000 per plate in 2016 at Hillary Clinton fundraisers had all that many nice things to say about 3rd world countries either. If their hearts were geared towards 3rd world countries, maybe they would have just given that $200,000 plate to Haiti directly instead.
Grumpy is pretty sure they all say similar things about America's poor people as well. You know, that ol' White Trash moniker? Or being from the Ghetto? Remember, when a person has nothing in their soul the easiest way for them to lift themselves up is to tear others down.
Now, Grumpy does have to be clear. Is Grumpy Pastor defending our commander in chief? Good Lord, no. His comments are somewhere between disastrous and appalling. What GP is saying is that it shouldn't be a surprise. It shouldn't be a surprise if a Pit Bull tries to bite you. It's in the Pit Bull's nature to bite people. It shouldn't be a surprise if you play the Powerball and you lose. The odds are heavily favored towards the state, and it's in the lottery's nature for you to lose. Equally as much, it shouldn't be a surprise that a wealthy politician called 3rd world countries "shitholes." It's the nature of wealthy politicians.
So how does GP feel? Well, the ol' Grump actually feels pity for the President with that red haired mop. Why pity? A couple thousand years ago Jesus said "…it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."
GP feels pity for Donald Trump, because he will never, ever, ever know the truth about 3rd World Countries and the people that reside there. He will never learn that 3rd World Countries contain people who are so ultimately full of God's grace, faith, and love, that they put Christians in the United States to shame with their grace, faith, and love. He will never learn the determination, strength, and faith it takes to live in a place torn apart by poverty, famine, or war. He will never learn that Jesus came to save the poor, the oppressed, and the captive. Donald Trump will never learn these things, and he just won't enter the kingdom. Poor guy.
"But Grumpy Pastor! We cannot keep going on with a President who thinks and speaks like this!" Remember, GP is no DJT admirer. But Grumpy will point out that probably the last 7 or 8 Presidents have probably thought and felt the exact same thing. Well, except for that Jimmy Carter guy - he's one bad-assed Jesus follower. Anyhow, those other Presidents just kept their feelings on the down-low because they knew they couldn't say those things. More so than this, Grumpy would recommend you to really not pay much attention and give much worship to Presidents, or Congresses, or Supreme Courts, or whoever is in whatever suit, making whatever decision.
See, a couple thousand years ago Jesus said something that really pertains to all of our government leaders. When the Pharisees and Herodians tried to trick him with a coin and asked paying taxes, he said "Give what is Caesar’s to Caesar and to God the things that are God's." This was a slap in the face to the Roman Empire! Caesar’s picture was on that coin, but everything really belonged to God. He was claiming the Roman Empire had no power. Jesus was the "Son of God." This was also the title that was given to Caesar. Jesus wasn't really very fond of earthly rulers. It kind of shows since he bogarted the emperor's title and all. He wasn't fond of the local Jewish leaders either. Those King Herods? A couple of different King Herods sold out the Jewish people to the occupying powers, and they wanted Jesus dead – once when he was little, and once which ended up with him on the cross.
So, Grumpy Pastor says to you, give what is Caesar's, or Herod's, or Trump's, or Congress’s to Caesar, Herod, Trump, or Congress. Give what is God's to God. Presidents and Congresses and wealthy politicians have never been the way to salvation, and will never be. But even more than that, in spite of whatever happens from those earthly powers, they have no power over you. You – you will always belong to God.
