Blasphemy and the Donald

I don’t like to throw around the word “Blasphemy”; it is used far too casually. But this video endorsement President-Elect Donald Trump is the most blasphemous thing I’ve seen in quite a while:

“Every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, whoever disagreed, whoever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”

Omarosa has (mis)appropriated the biblical language of the worship of God (Romans 14:11, Philippians 2:10) and applied to “the Donald.” This is blasphemy or I don’t know what is.

And, is anyone else concerned that becoming president of the United States is equated with revenge?  This is blasphemous and dangerous territory.
