In Stunning Display Of Ignorance, Trump Wishes Christians “Happy Good Friday”

JakeThomas

"HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY TO ALL!" President Trump tweeted, apparently lost on the somber nature of the day for Christians.

Christians across the globe are observing Good Friday today — the day commemorating Jesus Christ’s crucifixion before he would rise from death two days later, celebrated on Easter Sunday.

This is basic knowledge in Christian circles, and though some might expect that children and those outside of the faith would fail to understand the somber nature of Good Friday, most would assume the President of the United States would grasp its meaning.

But these are strange times, and Donald Trump is president.

In an apparent attempt to reach out to his Evangelical base on Friday, the president tweeted, “HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY TO ALL!” — typed in all caps, implying there is reason to celebrate and almost throwing off party vibes.

Twitter users were immediate with their criticism.

“This is a solemn day for Christians. It's not called Happy Friday,” wrote CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart. “Like not knowing what the significance of Pearl Harbor was, I'd suggest the President doesn't know what happened on Good Friday according to the scriptures.”

Trump is such an ignoramus and a complete fake. From his pancake orange skin to his mannequin dynel bottled blonde hair to resemble his Mommy's, not to mention the most obvious, his fake faith he claims to be a part of! Strange you never see him in a church! Even atheists know Good Friday is not a "Happy" time, it's a time for religious reflection, not celebration! STFU you POS!

Trump is not a Christian and has no idea what good Friday means! He only pretends for the Evangicals. Besides I'm sure he's not welcome in church, except of course by the phony Christians
