Weasel of the Week: Rev. Carl Gallups

How do I know you're not sick? You could be some deranged lunatic!---The Fresh Prince (Will Smith), "Parents Just Don't Understand", 1987.

The New York Daily News, in today's editions, trumpets the fact that Republican (?) Presidential candidate Dumb Donald Trump has embraced the support of a deranged Florida preacher who claims the 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary didn't happen. Reverend Carl Gallups claims, as do the idiotic "truthers", that there was no massacre in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012, and that at least one pair of grieving parents were actually actors.

Predictably, Dumb Donald isn't distancing himself from Gallups, who endorsed the millionaire demagogue in January, much to Trump's "delight". Please. Trump is accepting endorsements from the worst kind of people, from former Ku Klux Klan leader-turned-Louisiana politico David Duke to Gallups, and Lord knows who else in between. Well, at least some military vets are supporting Trump, and they may be the among the few sane ones. Trump is making a lot of ridiculous statements to attract the attention of the disenfranchised, angry, disgruntled voters, which would explain why he's winning a lot of primaries so far, something he wasn't able to do the last time he made a run for President.

Gallups gets the Weasel ears this week. Why? Even though his endorsement was 2 months ago, and the Daily News is only just finding out about this along with everyone else, he betrays his faith by spewing the lies of a few imbeciles who, like him, have disengaged themselves from reality. What do these morons need? Death certificates? No, that wouldn't work, as the "truthers" would dismiss those as fake as well. What Gallups needs is divine intervention, and a vacation in a padded room.
