A Democrat from California who tried to impeach the president a second time surprised viewers by calling the creator of the universe a female.
House impeachment manager Eric Swalwell used a nationally televised interview on MSNBC to declare God is a woman.
“We could have called God herself and the Republicans were not going to be willing to convict,” he said in a video shared on Twitter.
The remarks came after Swalwell defended the Democratic Party’s repeated failures to convict former President Donald Trump of so-called abuse of power, obstruction of justice and–most recently–inciting insurrection.
“The choice was, do we chase those people–not knowing what they are going to say to the courts–for years, or do we go forward with a powerful, thundering case that we have?” he said. “We are proud of the case we put forward.”
The Democrat blamed the Republican Party for not opposing the final vote on whether to remove President Trump, even though his first term in the Oval Office officially ended back on Jan. 20.
“Also knowing that [GOP Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell was already telling us that he believed the challenge was a jurisdictional one,” he said.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) rejected the remarks and called the impeachment manager a national security risk.
“This afternoon we have been lectured to by Eric Swalwell, a guy accused of consorting with a Chinese spy,” he said on Twitter. “How appropriate!”
Anti-police brutality activist Shaun King previously demanded that all statues of Jesus to be torn down because he believes religious monuments to the son of God somehow encourage white people to think they are better than those from other races.
“I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” he said on Twitter. “They are a form of white supremacy, always have been.”
The Black Lives Matter supporter also questioned the ethnicity of the biblical figure’s family members.
“In the bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? Egypt, not Denmark,” he said. “Tear them down.”
He separately suggested any church decorations that depict Jesus should be removed because they also offend him.
“All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down,” he said on Twitter. “They are a gross form [of] white supremacy, created as tools of oppression [and] racist propaganda. They should all come down.”
Extreme anarchist protests earlier swept across parts of the nation after Minnesotan George Floyd died in police custody. Local police allegedly handcuffed and kneed Floyd’s throat before he reportedly became unresponsive on May 25.
