C-SPAN Caller Celebrates Trump, Calls Shutdown a Sign of Second Coming: ‘Jesus is Coming Back’

On the day after Christmas, C-SPAN’ John McArdle took a call from someone who gushed over President Trump by saying the government shutdown shows its only a matter of time before “the second coming” of Jesus Christ.

As McArdle spoke with supporters of the government shutdown on Washington Journal, one of the people who called in identified himself as a man named Scott from New York. “Scott” spoke of how Trump will “build us a golden wall across the Mexican and Canadian border,” and also that “We just celebrated the first coming of Jesus. But Jesus is coming back.”

“And as crazy as the government is, it’s getting us closer. Now the solution to having a bill pay for the wall, Trump can do this by going after every business in America that got a tax break if they have any ties to any sister/baby companies off of them that have hired any illegal aliens in the past…I want it shutdown because I can’t wait for when Jesus comes back and gets the righteous real people and takes them to heaven.”
