The Devil Made Me Do It
“My first MO is I take someone who is going to misbehave and then nudge them over the edge. My second MO, is I have the ability to befuddle people’s minds.”
The devil gave a few illustrations of pushing someone over the edge.
“Watch Johnny Depp’s face as he apologized for calling for the assassination of your president . His expression said, “ I thought I was going to make a joke, so where the hell did what I said come from?” And Stephen Colbert, meaning to insult the president, made a homophobic comment instead. You could almost hear him thinking “What the hell did I just say?” And the audiences who applaud, including the assassination in the Broadway play, have to go home and wonder “why did I do that? Normal people don’t do things like that.”
“It’s me, the devil said.”
There is the bloody head of Trump–the actress who wants to blow up the White House–the democrat who enjoyed the Congressman having his guts all splattered around inside–crazy things like the man who said Trump wasn’t fair saying he had tapes, because then Comey had to tell the truth. People in the media losing their jobs because they go over the edge on camera, and polls revealing the media committing suicide while seemingly not even caring.
“That’s me, the devil bragged.”
Then there is the democrat party which seems totally befuddled about who they are. And their congress members who came to Washington to do something, just sitting around, lost. “ I’m muddling their brains.” “They don’t even know why they are losing.”
“Why am I doing this? Those in the know, know that I am in a battle with the other God for territory I was gaining on Him when the president handed over the country to me by declaring “‘America is no longer a Christian nation’.”
“Then it all went south for me when you people elected Trump. All that Jesus talk during his inauguration. I knew I was in trouble. It put me in a rage. I won’t stop until I hear them say again America is a no longer a Christian nation.”
