Why can't the Bible be this accurate in prophecy?

When I first read the following line by H.L. Mencken I could hardly believe how accurate it was (at the time. W. Bush had just been elected.) But now it's even more accurate than ever.

"On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

I stole it from the comment string on Charlie Pierce's Esquire blog.

I think I picked it up from Bertold. I've been using it on the Net like crazy.

Dolt 45, good one, Michael. Is that original?

Right on about Pence.  I can't stand to even look at that altar boy.

Donnie Johnny is our moron. He's Dolt 45. His support base wants to claim we are lying when all they have to do is fact check. In some cases all they have to do is recall the news and what Donnie said at certain times. Do they watch the news? Do they read it? It seems that Donnie Johnny is the king of fake news and alternative facts. He brought these terms in and they get it, but never question just where this moron gets his facts.

It's time for Donnie Johnny to go. It's time that the resistance sets up "Trump-Free" zones all across America and sticks to it. Trump might come there but he would never be welcomed. It's all his thing. He's trying to Make America White Again. Ops! They couldn't put that one on the bumper stickers.

It's time for this moron to go. Let's see Trump-Free zones and some more anit-Trump protesting.

Heard a comment from Joshua Green, author of Devil's Bargain--

The Kochs are nuanced intellectuals with moderate political views compared to the Mercers.


Our moron in chief is a dim bulb, but the goons doing the dirty work know exactly what they're doing. In Klein's book she has some chilling comments about Pence, "who actually has the most disturbing track record when it comes to bloody-minded exploitation of human suffering." 

(What a perfect Christian.)

The Radical Crusade of Mike Pence

And from the Koch brothers and other heads of unelected corporate government, there was much rejoicing.
