Trump: ‘It’s cute that Rick Perry thinks there’s a God. If anything, I’m God!’

When asked by reporters today how he felt about Rick Perry calling him God’s “Chosen One,” president Trump faced cameras at the White House and stated “It’s cute. I think it’s really cute that Rick still thinks there’s a God. If anything, I am God!”

The president’s statement caused immediate outrage among religious people of all political leanings, prompting Trump to later tweet out a clarification.

The tweet has been deemed offensive by many, but good enough to serve as both an excuse and an apology for today’s Republicans.
