Trump's 'Spiritual Advisor' Says Jesus Wasn't 'An Illegal,' Okay?

Televangelist and Ivanka-wannabe Paula White (yeah) weighs in on immigration by saying Jesus was never "an illegal." Bible scholars beg to differ.

The above video shows Paula White telling Fox what a great Christian Donald Trump is, right before his inauguration.

And now she's hit another home run in the "breaking the commandment on bearing false witness" sweepstakes:

And yes, it doesn't take a Master's degree from Harvard Divinity School to tell Paula she's emphatically lying about what it says in the Bible.

But smart divinity school graduates never shout down the liars when they can get a Jesuit to do it for them:

This need to make Donald Trump holy, even in the case of child abuse, smells a lot like idolatry. Another of God's top ten list of no-no's that Paula and her Pharasee friends might want to check out.
