Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) has crossed a line that even surprised the left.
Markey compared President Trump to the biblical Pontius Pilate after rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program. Markey was being intervied by CNN’s Chris Cuomo when it came to talk about DACA. Markey is clueless and has not seen the damage the roughly eight hundred thousand illegal kids have left on the American economy. But President Trump is not sending this kids packing immediately. He is giving Congress 6 months to come up with a plan and find an amicable solution. But chances of that making its way through both chambers of Congress are very slim.
But regardless of your position on DACA, what Markey said in an attempt to slime Trump was unconscionable.
Pontius Pilate was part of the group that crucified Jesus on the cross. What Markey says about Trump is absolutely disgusting.
“The president is acting like Pontius Pilate and he’s washing his hands of this mess, knowing that these are all innocent young people who are caught in a crossfire,” Markey told CNN Wednesday.
In the Bible, Pilate literally washes his hands of the blood of Jesus.
“Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate.
But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!”
When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!”
This is not the first time President Trump has been compared to awful people from history, but this one that is beyond disgusting and crosses a major line. Markey has some nerve to cross that line. This is something every Christian should be offended by and it’s below the belt.
Watch the madness here.
