(PresidentialInsider.com)- Apparently the Cult of COVID has some competition. Now, there is the Cult of the Porta-Potty.
The Gateway Pundit did a post featuring pictures from Trump’s Georgia rally that showed a cross-shaped cloud looming up above the row of porta-potties. Which, in itself, is probably not the best positioning if you’re trying to read something divine into it.
But it does give a whole new meaning to “God Bless this Mess.”
It’s possible the Gateway Pundit was trying to convey the idea that God blesses Trump, which may not be as over-the-top as a Fauci prayer candle, but still.
In addition to a cross-shaped cloud, Trump’s rally also featured a Marine Lance Corporal who told the crowd that he was the Marine who rescued the Afghan baby lifted over the wall at Kabul Airport.
President Trump invited Lance Corporal Hunter Clark on stage to praise him for doing a great job.
Clark, who resides in Warner Robbins, Georgia, told the crowd that saving that baby was “one of the greatest things I’ve done in my entire life.”
And for that, the Marine Corps is now investigating Clark to determine whether his appearance at a Trump rally violated the military ban on active-duty troops getting involved in partisan political activities.
That seems a bit of a stretch. In fact, it’s more of a stretch than thinking God was blessing the porta-potties.
Clark made no political remarks at the rally. All he did was thank the crowd for their support and say how glad he was to be home.
Nonetheless, the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit is investigating Clark to see if any DoD policies were violated.
One can’t help but wonder if they would investigate an active-duty Marine for speaking briefly at a Biden rally. But to wonder that, there would actually have to be something like a Biden rally, which is highly unlikely.
According to USA Today, the Marines also contend that Hunter Clark is claiming credit where none is due. According to Captain Kelton Cochran, a spokesman for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, the Marine identified in the picture that went viral around August 21 was not, in fact, Lance Corporal Clark. If that’s the case, it looks like Clark may have hoodwinked the former President.
