This is really something….
A huge Golden Trump statue has just been rolled into CPAC.
Oh my goodness!
Yes, it’s for real.
Take a look:

This is pure Twitter gold.
The 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, kicked off in Orlando, Fla., this week with someone wheeling in a golden statue of Donald Trump.
And the inevitable comparisons to the Old Testament story of the Israelites worshiping a false idol in the form of a golden calf spread across social media faster than you can say “Moses.”
In fact, “golden calf” and related terms like “Moses” and “CPAC” were soon trending on Friday morning.
Here’s a quick Sunday-school refresher on the biblical anecdote:
While Moses was away receiving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai, the Israelites were suffering a crisis of faith. So they handed over their gold ornaments and jewelry for the construction of a calf to worship. This angered both God and Moses, who had recently led the Israelites away from Egyptian bondage. And upon his return, an angry Moses destroyed the false idol by burning and grinding it into a powder, scattering the ashes into water, and forcing the Israelites to drink it.
Everyone is making the Old Testament connection:
Are you fucking kidding me!!!! There's a golden fucking statue of Trump at CPAC? I seem to remember a certain teaching about a golden calf…false idols…10 Commandments… pic.twitter.com/SaDAlHORhj

"Seriously, did these folks not read the Old Testament?" https://t.co/fubqG0Eu2F

What do you think?
Hilarious or a bad idea?
I will say this….
There is a very famous Kim Clement prophecy where he talks about “gold” being the thing to clearly mark the man he is talking about (Trump).
This would certainly do it, I’d say!
