After Trump’s spat today with Pope Francis, Charles Krauthammer joked that just about the only person left for the presidential candidate to go after is God himself.
“Initially when I heard about it, I thought Trump was going to retort with a quote from two Corinthians,” Krauthammer joked on Thursday’s Special Report. “After everybody he has taken on, now he takes on the pope. Who is left? It’s the big guy upstairs.”
“Look, the reason I take this lightly is I don’t think it be amounts to anything,” Krauthammer continued. “What the Pope said was a general statement that any religious leader could say, ‘If you only talk about walls and not bridges,’ that’s not good. Trump takes it as an attack on him – cleverly, I think,”
“This is a state, South Carolina, that is not that friendly to papists, and the pope is a papist, apparently,” he said. ”So this is a good play. ... It gives him a day in the news which is what he does brilliantly day after day.”
