A Right Wing Host Just Made a Questionable Claim About Donald Trump and God, and Twitter Is Calling Him Out

That's some fuzzy math.

Right-wing radio personality Bill Mitchell offered a rather perplexing defense of President Donald Trump on Monday, tweeting that God favors Trump because of "math."

"God favors America," Mitchell wrote, adding that "Trump favors America." Therefore, Mitchell said, "God favors Trump."

"It's just math," Mitchell concluded. Mitchell did not offer any math to back up his claim.

This is not math and Twitter jumped in to remind the "Your Voice" host that the evidence at hand supports a much different conclusion.

What's more obvious, one user pointed out, is the favoritism coming from the Trump administration - toward Russia.

"Trump favors Putin. Putin favors Russia. Trump favors Russia."

Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) fired back at Mitchell by saying "God favors everyone."

Then came some other claims which actually made a lot more sense than Mitchell's.

"There is like, no God tho."

And since love is blind, and Ray Charles was blind, Ray Charles must be God.

"It's just math," after all.

And "much better reasoning."

Given that Mitchell decided to arbitrarily confuse causality with correlation - a frequent mistake those poorly-versed in math and science make, Twitter offered some other examples.

"You suck at math."

Mitchell's "informal logic" didn't take well on social media.

Neither did his "blind belief in superstitions," which, of course, are not math.

"There is literally no math here."

Mitchell got compared to a port-a-potty.

And then came excerpts from the Bible, none of which mention America but all of which mention God loving everyone.

"You're reading the wrong book. This is what I found," a person willing to actually read the Bible pointed out. "America was never mentioned, but loving everyone was."

John 3:16 reads: "For God so loved the world."

Though there may be an explanation for Mitchell's poor grasp of arithmetic, joked one follower.

There's a whole big world out there. Surely God doesn't only love America...

Take Great Britain for example.

Even if Mitchell had meant to say "logic" instead of "math," it still doesn't work.

Twitter tried, though.

Come on Bill, that's not how this works.
