U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has joined ranks with Donald Trump’s super weird spiritual adviser and a few others in calling the current president the “Chosen One” and saying that he was “sent by God” to lead the nation. However, he didn’t just say this to a national audience. He claims he told Trump himself that he was the Chosen one during a personal Bible lesson in which he compares him to multiple Biblical kings.

“God’s used imperfect people all through history. King David wasn’t perfect, Saul wasn’t perfect, Solomon wasn’t perfect,” said Perry during a Fox News interview. “And I actually gave the president a little one-pager on those Old Testament kings about a month ago.”

“And I shared with him, I said, ‘Mr. President, I know there are people that say, you know, “you said you were the Chosen One,'” and I said, ‘you were,'” Perry continued.

Thanks for inflating Trump’s ego, Perry, he really needed that.

The clip then switches back to Fox and Friends, where they claim that Rick Perry also believes that former President Barack Obama was sent by God to be president during those eight years before Trump, no matter how hard Perry attacked Obama during that time.

Pete Hegseth went on to claim that he’s talked to people “across the country” who support Trump and that they feel “precisely the same way Rick Perry does” about Trump being “imperfect” but still sent by God. Sure, nobody’s perfect, but did God really need that big of a challenge?

“But what he has withstood is unlike what really any other mortal could understand,” Hegseth concluded, referring to public and media criticism of Trump. They lynched effigies of the last president for being Black and trying to pass healthcare reform but sure.

Of course, Rick Perry didn’t always feel this way about Trump.

Aside from pointing this out, people are mostly focused on their concerns about the cult-like language so often used by Christian Trump fans.

Others simply don’t buy it.

Wasn’t Rick Perry retiring or something?
