Twitter Account of Right-Wing Newspaper Owned by Billionaire Christian Conservative Declares ‘Trump Is Going to Hell'

The Washington Examiner's Twitter account kicked off Monday morning with a tweet declaring President Donald Trump "is going to hell." The right wing newspaper is owned by a billionaire Christian conservative. The tweet also slammed the paper as "garbage."

"Trump is going to hell. Anyone who ever read the bible can tell you where it stands on rich adulterers. The key to God's forgiveness is repentance. Trump's entire political career has been about the exact opposite of that. Also, this paper is garbage for promoting 'Trump and God.'"

Some on the social media site were quick to notice the post, declaring it both eloquent and truthful.

the washington examiner had two scotches too many last night

If you had told me last night that The Washington Examiner would be making headlines today I would have said "for what, telling the truth?"
And you would have said "yes."

Easily the most eloquent thing to ever exit the gaping-yet-remedial pieholes of your friendly fascists over at The Washington Examiner

To see the look on the faces of the 53 Washington Examiner subscribers...

The Washington Examiner later deleted the tweet, posting another claiming they were "hacked."

That, too, was righteously mocked.

The Washington Examiner is owned by Philip Anschutz, who also owns Coachella, a music festival.
