Too Rude?

by | Jul 16, 2019 | Christianity Today | 22 comments

The President wrote, “Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!”
And, at a Jewish Seminary in New York, he blurted out “I am King Cyrus!”
But, the thing is, that wasn’t Trump…
It was President Harry Truman.  Okay, here’s a President who puts his intention to commit felony assault in writing—imagine the reaction of the media to a Tweet like that!
Truman essentially called himself the reincarnation of King Cyrus—was he delusional?
Oh, and did you know Harry Truman tried to use his power to draft an entire labor union into the United States Army in order to punish them for striking?  Trump is tame by comparison.
Imagine what CNN would do to President Truman today, if he was a Republican.


Mark Twain said, “Facts are a stubborn thing.”  It is a fact that Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson nursed greater hatred for the media during their time in office than Trump does today.

This historical perspective shows us Trump is not the madman the media needs him to be.
Notice I said, need.  They need to destroy him.  It is a bottomless need.  It is a need so intense it has consumed all rational journalism.  Facts have become irrelevant. There is even a name for it: Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Any good that President Trump does, they must ignore, or twist it into evil.  They have sold their souls.  As Alec Baldwin said, “There is no way to be too nasty to Trump.”
The need has reduced them to pathetic, blithering automatons who must tell the most trivial lies about him, such as killing goldfish, and how many scoops of ice cream he takes.
Instead of learning from the spanking they got during the election—they increased their daily venom.  They no longer care about ratings—as CNN’s abysmal ratings so eloquently prove. It is only about destroying Trump, even if it means self-destruction for those who hate him.
A football player gets punched, but the ref doesn’t see it—all he sees is the victim punch back, and throws a penalty flag.  Multiply that times a million—welcome to Trump’s world.
Not only is Trump not crazy—not only are his outbursts understandable—but I admire the way he has behaved with greater restraint than his predecessors. I doubt any of them could ever have imagined the level of tyranny, treachery, and treason that is leveled at him every day by the fake news. -Mario Murillo

  1. Truman letter to Paul Hume:

“Mr. Hume:

“I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s (Truman’s daughter) concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an ‘eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.’

“It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens, you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“[Newspaper columnist Westbrook] Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”  – Harry S. Truman

    Great point Mario!
    That was a time when the American people really had something to be stirred up about namely World War II. But what’s their excuse now for being all stirred up and wildly angry over everything? Peace time? More than enough jobs available? Thriving Markets? A Plethora of Social Freedoms?…Nope, no excuse.
    What is very revealing is the people today that actually live and voted in the districts where the Socialistic “Squad” live.
    By voting in the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their “Squad” bunch, to the House of Representatives, what those people in effect did was to say to the rest of the American population and those who happily voted for Trump in 2016 is…’Who you want and who you vote for and the way you live is invalid and inconsequential to our take over!’
    Authentic Americanism isn’t even an issue in their playbook. They do not now nor have they ever thought of these United States as “One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Justice for All.” The very speeches and communications that these “Squad” women spew out reveals exactly how they think and what their agenda is.
    Back in President Truman’s day, women such as these voted into Congress to Represent the people of this nation, would’ve been arrested for Treason and removed from office without question or dissent. Yet now the stray cats are out of the bag & roaming the halls of our capital buildings without consequence.
    It’s a definitive disgrace ????
    “Ms Nancy Pelosi get a grip on your caucus members”‼️

      I agree 100%.

  2. TRUTH

    We can not make it through this life without the Holy Spirit. Jesus, was continually led by God’s Spirit. Who do we think we are? We desperately need this Spirit of Truth… Why is the Holy Spirit being rejected by many in the so called Church? Like Paul, we need the scales removed from our eyes. Wake Up Call ? Now!!!

    Bless you! I am so sick of people bashing our President!! Christians need to support our PRO-LIFE President! It is a movement! I don’t remember Christians bashing Barry Soetoro who was a the most immoral infanticide sexual orientation deviant defiant lawless President of our life time and the first President with an alias!! Thanks Mario we need your voice! Even Trunews bashes our President almost daily! They are motivating Believers to NOT VOTE for TRUMP in the 2020 elections!! I don’t care about Trump’s past I am concerned ?about the present and the future for our children and grandchildren!

    • gglukens

      Thank you for the word about turnews. After meeting one of their anchors at Mario’s tent meetings in Paradise, CA. I checked out the trunews website. . I was shocked to read and hear that Rick Wiles does not support Israel. I closed their website and have not been back since.

      • kingskid48

        Wow. Thanks for the heads up.

      • Kat Amanti

        I still love Trunews and support them but I am at a loss because of the fact that they are not supportive of our President Trump! And many on Facebook who follow them say they will not vote for Trump in 2020. As far as Israel ?? is concerned I agree with Rick Wiles that we need to be supporters of the plight of the Palestinians because they are suffering persecution by the Zionists!

  4. Gary H. Patterson

    Thanks Mario for preaching the truth…hope to see you in California to observe, receive impartation from, and participate in what God is so wonderfully doing there. We are praying for you!

      When Israel governed in the Palestine territory, the area flourished, the people in that area actually want them back. IT’S the terrorist leaders who hate Israel, not the citizens. Israel has never oppressed The Palestinians, in fact they offered to help them grow food to feed their people. They rejected Israel’s help and built terrorist training camps in those areas instead to attack Israel. You cannot be a christian and support terrorism.

      Kat Amanti whaaat?? I lived in Israel for 7 years and the reverse is true. Dig deeper my sister, the facts are there.

    Well stated Watchman! Be Holy Spirit led, bold and courageous! In the name of Jesus.

  7. Wilma Liles

    You ask if President is Rude.! He is not! He is what America voted for? He tells it like it is!! Truth hurts those who are swamp creatures. He is pulling back the veil and exposing evil and corruption In the name of God in heaven!!!

  8. kingskid48

    This is why we love you, Pastor Mario. You stand firmly, and back your stance with facts. You are teaching us well….that we don’t ever back down when we know we have the truth!

  9. david larson

    Thank you Mario. You are uniquely you; a voice crying in the wilderness of Christianity run amok. I hope you have an increasingly larger platform. Thank you for well researched historical fact. God Bless and protect you and your family, your staff, And God Bless and protect our President and the USA>.

    • Carolina

      YES david larson…”run amok”…disruptively out of control.

  10. Charlene Carlisle

    About too Rude! Our President said what many people are thinking. Many are too afraid to speak their true thoughts because of the liberal outcry. Me….I am nearly 85 years old and say what I mean and I mean exactly what I say. I am sick of all liberals (I call them libtards) whining and always taking a total negative side without knowing what is really meant or said. I believe that anyone hates this Country to the degree that the four women in Congress hates this country should not only leave they should be removed from Congress and should be sent back to the home they came from or their parents came from. Sick and tire of all this worthless clatter.

    • Carolina

      AMEN Charlene Carlisle!…you’re very articulate, also what is so nauseating is the fact that the news media even including Fox, DID NOT report what PR-Trump actually said, word for word, but kept up the nasty narrative that the “Squad” of these treasonous House of Representatives women kept reporting that PR-Trump said. All in order to re-accuse PR Trump of being a racist & to promote impeachment proceedings. When THEY are the radical racists who are against anything, anyone, or any belief that they just don’t understand or agree with. They do exactly what Apostle Paul said in Romans that the perverse would do, “they accuse others and excuse themselves.”

  11. Greg Stricker

    I have actually read that letter, it is on the wall in the old Theater Building in Pinehurst, NC where Truman’s daughter offered the performance that was considered by it’s critic to be so ghastly.

    I love Truman as I have come to understand him both as a man and as a President. Johnson horrendous in both roles, I loved Nixon as President, but he was a horrible man. Ford and Carter were both decent men but lacking as Presidents. Reagan was in a class by himself; but we do get glimpses of that greatness from Trump. Bush 1 lost me because we read his lips. Bush 2 is underrated, but lacks the decency to be supportive and he has also broken his promise not to speak ill of those following him. Clinton was just scum, and Obummer is even lower.

    No man, not even me is perfect, nor do I consider myself to be. Trump is better than he treated and I have no doubt that every time he kicks the hornet’s nest, he knows exactly what he is doing.

  12. Shoshanna M. Zimmerman

    I love history and I would like to share what I found. FDR had a meeting with the Saudis 1945 or late 1944. Oil was offered if USA promised not to recognize Israel’s right to have State. FDR agreed and was dead a few months later. Truman recognized Israel. Trump brought us out from under the yoke of Saudi Arabia after over 70 years. Trump broke the FDR agreement and freed us. This is huge energy independence.
