CNN Guest Calls Notion Trump Is the “Chosen One” an “Insult” and “Absurd”

During his appearance on CNN Friday, former GOP lawmaker Charlie Dent attacked the notion that President Trump is the “chosen one.”

Charlie Dent:

I find it absolutely head-slapping people could be so swayed by demagoguery that they could actually almost, you know, worship this man as if he were some kind of a God. I mean, whatever happened to a healthy skepticism about politicians? I mean, this is just the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard. Ridiculous.

It’s an insult to the actual chosen one, whoever that may be, that we would suggest that Donald Trump is the chosen one. This is where I think people have to really get about their—get their senses back and be skeptical of a politician, not cynical, somewhat skeptical. This is absurd people would say this.

Dent was responding to former Secretary of Energy Rick Perry praising President Trump.

“Mr President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one and I said, you were,’” Rick Perry recalled in an interview.

“I said, ‘If you’re a believing Christian, you understand God’s plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government.’”
