Liberals can’t help but demonstrate their double standards.  You know they hate — absolutely hate – when conservatives believe in God?  This was shown most recently when Joy Behar, of the View, mocked Vice President Mike Pence, saying his Christianity was akin to “mental illness.”

About prayer, Behar said, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you.”  Then, she called prayer “hearing voices,” which she claimed to be a sign of mental illness.

So what to make of Stephen Colbert fawning over Oprah Winfrey, in an effort to encourage her to run for President against Donald Trump in 2020?  When she appeared on his show, he showed a message from God.

“I’m a huge fan,” ‘God’ said to Oprah.

“I’m a huge fan of yours, too,” she responded.

“Wow — Oprah knows who I am? I can’t wait to tell Jesus! I’m gonna look so cool,” “God” replied.

Then, he said that he heard she was looking for a sign to run.

“I hear thou seekest a sign. Well, is this clear enough?” he said before flashing a sign that read RUN.

“‘Run’ is a part of my exercise routine,” she said.

“How do I make this clearer, Oprah? Oh, I know: Oprah Winfrey 2020! Yes, she can!”

Then, God came back wearing Oprah Winfrey political gear and waving flags.  Can you even imagine what would happen if a conservative did anything like this, even in jest?

The left is so insufferable.  And this, of course, is not all of the fawning the media has done over Winfrey lately. Alex Parker, over at Truth Revolt, writes:

On Tuesday, Winfrey’s best friend and CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King goaded Winfrey, saying, “You have a unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.” Referencing late poet Maya Angelou, King prodded, “What do you think Maya would say?”

Seriously, CBS This Morning should’ve had a trigger warning on that emotional adulation, because my stomach can’t take coffee and that kind of syrup so early in the morning.  I think it’s amazing how the very same people who said Trump was an unqualified television personality are falling over themselves over Oprah.
