A Tale of Two Presidents: National Prayer Breakfast Edition

Just take a minute here and listen to one of President Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast speeches. This is long. You don’t need to watch it all. Just listen to a few seconds. Remind yourself what an actual President sounds like during a prayer breakfast.

That was a thoughtful, sober speech. He quotes scripture. He speaks about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., he speaks about Islam, about Jesus’ preaching, about the grace of God. “I pray that we answer scripture’s call and we lift up the vulnerable, and to stand up for justice, and ensure that every human being lives in dignity.”

Good speech.

Here’s Donald Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast praying for Arnold Schwarzenegger because his ratings on The Apprentice have fallen.

Here’s Donald Trump’s message of hope: “The world is under serious, serious threat in so many different ways and I’ve never seen it so much and so openly since I became President … When you hear about the tough phone calls I’m having, don’t worry about. Don’t worry about it.”

Update: Arnie’s response (and he’s not wrong).
