For almost four years, the religious right has peddled a false narrative about Donald Trump. As part of that narrative, they have claimed that when Trump took office, he wasn’t the only one to inhabit the White House. Nope, God himself now lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
For the better part of four decades, the nation’s so-called moral guardians have insisted–subtly in some cases, not so subtly in others–that God is a conservative Republican. In a number of areas where the fundie influence is particularly strong, your salvation could potentially be at risk if you even think about voting for a Democrat. In these areas, “GOP” might as well stand for “God’s Own Party.”
This context is needed to explain a recent message from self-proclaimed prophetess Kat Kerr. While she’s best known as a self-proclaimed “weather warrior” who has tried–and failed–to stop wildfires and hurricanes, she has been as obnoxiously pro-Trump as any man or woman of the cloth. She not only believes that God is resident in the Trump administration, but that God will inhabit the White House for a very long time. To be exact, 24 years–two terms for Trump, two terms for Mike Pence, and two terms for Pence’s vice president.
If you’ve paid even cursory attention to Trump in the last three-plus years, you would probably die laughing at anyone who says God is present in the Trump administration. Surely God wouldn’t inhabit a White House which condones degrading women, blatant racism, and abuse of power.
But apparently that doesn’t matter to Kerr, based on a message to her Facebook followers on Friday night. Watch here.
Kerr claimed that we were on the verge of “the best ten years we’ve ever had in this world, especially in America.” She believed that Trump was a big reason for this upcoming decade of good feelings. She claimed that Trump was doing “exactly what he was supposed to do”–and impeachment and other headaches be hanged.
Kerr claimed that Trump was going to win reelection later this year. She then reiterated her earlier prediction that “as God said before,” Pence would serve two terms of his own, and then another Republican would serve two terms after that. That meant, according to Kerr, that “God would be in the White House” for a long time.
The timing of this video was interesting, to say the least. It came just days after Trump threatened to bomb Iranian cultural sites if Iran retaliated for the death of its top military leader, Qasem Solemani–a move that would have been a war crime. Amid calls for officials to publicly refuse to obey such an order, Defense Secretary Mark Esper stated that American troops would abide by “the rules of armed conflict.”
But what does it say that Trump would even think about making such an outrageous suggestion? Surely God wouldn’t inhabit an administration where this would even be on the list of possible responses. But if we believe Kerr, apparently God does. If that’s the case, Kerr’s God must be really, really small.
