If you were thinking that the president bottomed out today with his sexual innuendo about Democratic US Senator Gillibrand, think again. As First Lady Michelle Obama said last year, the presidency does not change who you are, it reveals who you are. For this president, there is not likely to be any soundable bottom. We could look more closely at the paradoxical geometry of bottomless pits in a finite universe. We could ask whether a rock dropped in the Oval Office would ever bounce off the bottom, but why not look instead to the Scriptures. As the book of Revelation predicted, the president is the “king of the bottomless pit.” That’s from Revelation chapter 9, “then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit….from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened….then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth….they have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon.” Or, in Old High German, “Trump.” At least many people say so. Also, I regret to report, and even though it may hurt the feelings of those who believe Scripture is without error, the scorpions have been stinging us for more than five months.
Update December 13: USA Today’s editorial today, “Will Trump’s Lows Ever Hit Rock Bottom?” says, shockingly but fairly, that Trump is unfit to clean the toilets of Obama’s presidential library or to shine George W. Bush’s shoes!
