Chris Matthews Explains the Amazing Secret Reason for President Trump’s Jerusalem Announcement

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Chris Matthews was on Hard Ball (singular) today to drunk-splain why President Trump directed that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and set in motion the process of moving the US embassy to that city.

Via Daily Caller:

“And a couple more points about this. Don’t think this isn’t related to Alabama next week. It is related. It is the Christian evangelicals down there with their crazy ideas about Israel, which is, I don’t know, mythical,” Matthews stated.

“They don’t understand the situation over there and how tricky it is ethnically, how tricky it is tribally. They don’t care because it’s a religious belief. Trump’s playing to that this week. You watch him,” he continued.

In fairness to Matthews, he seems to be describing something that is widely believed on the secular left.

I’m not an evangelical, but I’m theologically literate enough to recognize that what is being described here is a variety of dispensationalism and the two are not the same thing. I think you have to be a special kind of stupid to believe that Trump is timing this announcement to fire up tens of thousands of Darbyite dispensationalists to turn out to vote for Roy Moore. But this is a strange year so who the hell knows.

      Obama’s the Antichrist, just reminding those who aren’t up to speed.
      Waking up is painful.
      But it’s better to be up to speed and know what’s going on.

        I’m absolutely, positively 100% certain Obama’s the Antichrist and the proof of it is clear to see for anyone with the right eyes needed to see and to understand the facts.

        Indeed yes, any intelligent person can understand the sign of 666 indicating that Obama’s the Antichrist which occurred in this way:
        the number 666 (which is the Bible’s “Mark of the Beast” which everybody knows means the Antichrist) appeared by miracle in a way that logic cannot explain: the lottery in Obama’s homestate drew 666 on the day of his election celebration.

        And so at least 50 million people saw it in the media and tv news in the 5 states of the Great lakes which all play the Illinois Lottery and get the lottery results blaring on their medias all day long during the newscasts of the day.

      You might be right, but remember there may be more to this complicated individual we call Antichrist. Don’t worry, you’re on to something.

      You mean the same Chris Matthews that guaranteed that Hillary would win
      the Presidency? That Chris Matthews? And you would still believe him?
