Robert Jeffress, a pastor who has shown sycophantic tendencies toward Donald Trump over the past four years, earned some criticism from Trump World after congratulating President-elect Joe Biden on his decisive win in this month’s election.
“When Joe Biden becomes president, we should commend him for the things he does right,” he wrote. “We should condemn the things he does wrong. And above all, we must pray fervently for our president. If President Biden succeeds, we all succeed. May God bless Joe Biden, and may God bless the United States of America.”
That did not sit well with some of Trump’s most fervent followers, prompting Jeffress to perform an abrupt about-face to reiterate the undying servitude he has toward his chosen leader.
“Don’t believe some false media reports that I have ‘broken’ with our great President [Trump],” he groveled on Twitter. “I support him completely. We do NOT have a ‘president-elect’ until electoral college votes December 14.”
