Nobody said one word about Obama saying this was not a Christian nation!!! But if Trump makes a statement about GOD.. they lose their minds… Double Standards!!!!!
During an interview with Rep. Trey Gowdy, CNN host Erin Burnett tried to stir up controversy over a recent comment President Donald Trump made about his faith. But, I guess she did not expect what followed next. Trey Gowdy ripped Burnett in a way that left her speechless and at the same time, he schooled her about the Constitution and religion.
“You’ve heard me say it before on the campaign trail,” Trump said in a rally this week, “and I’ll say it again tonight. In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
The Blaze reported that Burnett decided to come out with, “now conservative Bill Kristol, you know him. He’s been critical of the president before, but on this, he tweets, ‘In America the president doesn’t tell us who or what or whether to worship.’”

She then asked the question, “who do you agree with, Bill Kristol or the president who just came out and definitively said in America we worship God?”
Unfortunately, her plan to trap Gowdy into looking like a liberal or a bigot didn’t work. In fact, Gowdy schooled her with an epic constitutional lesson. He said: “how about choice ‘C,’ our founding fathers who gave us a First Amendment which is a free exercise right but also a freedom to have no religion if that’s what we want.”
He went on to say, “there is no established religion in this country, that’s why we have an Establishment Clause. The president is welcome to share his faith, it’s been done by other presidents. Jimmy Carter did it, John F. Kennedy did it.”
He finished up by saying, “if President Trump wants to share his faith, more power to him, but our country recognizes all religions including no religion.”
Erin Burnett has proven she is not a journalist nor a commentator. All she does when she has a Republican on is shoot out “gotcha” questions. But, the responses always backfire on her. She knew it was pointless to push Gowdy with BS and quickly moved on. Yet another fail for CNN!
Trey Gowdy is really good at getting to the point. He is exactly right in his explanation. People in this country are free to express their religion whenever and wherever they choose. Regardless of their choice of religions or none whatsoever. Even in schools and other public forums even though the atheists would say otherwise. They seem to be perpetually pissed off at everything. Burnett is just trying to start another BS controversy where there is none. Kinda like the Russia hoax started by Hillary Clinton and John Podesta. CNN has nothing but this crap left. They are to the point where they are throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks.
