Controversy Erupts as Marjorie Taylor Greene Likens Trump to Jesus at Las Vegas Rally

At a recent Las Vegas rally, former President Donald Trump’s supporters stirred controversy with provocative comparisons to religious figures. The most contentious remarks came from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who likened Trump to Jesus Christ, drawing mixed reactions from the crowd.

Greene’s statement, “The man that I worship is also a convicted felon. And he was murdered on a Roman cross,” compared Trump’s conviction for hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels with the crucifixion of Jesus. This comparison echoed her previous assertions that Trump’s legal troubles align him with historical figures like Nelson Mandela and Jesus, who faced imprisonment and execution.

Nevada Republican Party Chair Michael McDonald further inflamed the situation by equating Trump to God, stating, “Thank God we’re here in Sunset Park to worship and bring back the greatest president we’ve ever known in our generation.”

The rally’s location in Las Vegas coincided with an unusually warm period in the southwestern United States, a phenomenon attributed to climate change. Despite scientific consensus, Trump has consistently denied climate change, a stance highlighted during his speech in Phoenix, Arizona, where temperatures reached 110 degrees, resulting in 11 hospitalizations for heat exhaustion.

Greene also made headlines recently with her claim that President Joe Biden “planned to assassinate” Trump during the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago in 2022. Despite Trump being in New Jersey at the time, Greene alleged that Biden gave the FBI a “green light” to kill Trump, a claim the FBI has dismissed as unfounded.
