    While President Donald Trump's licentious past has been the subject of multiple reports lately, Vice President Mike Pence revealed on the National Day of Prayer Thursday that the New York City billionaire is quite principled when it comes to praying for direction about the nation's business.

    In an interview with CBN News shortly after Trump held a celebration for the National Day of Prayer in the Rose Garden, Pence said the president has encouraged praying in the White House by personally promoting the practice himself.

    "There's prayer going on on a regular basis in this White House. And it's one of the most meaningful things to me, whether it's public meetings or not, I've lost count of the number of times that the president has nudged me, or nudged another member of the Cabinet and said, 'Let's start this meeting with prayer,'" Pence said.

    It amazes me that people seem to think that Trump must be perfect to be worth anything. Who here is without sin? Who here has things in their past they wish were not there? Who here does not continue to sin? Such double hypocritical standards.

    It amazes me too. Because I saw this board during the Obama administration. OP’s like this didn’t occur even though Obama met routinely with a pastor from Texas for prayer. It sounds great when you say things like this but I’ve seen what it used to be and still is to some effect. You’ve got the hypocritical part right though.

    Rev Wright was no longer expedient to council him, so he ditched him, with payoff, I’m sure. Who was this pastor from Texas? I don’t recall. Where are the Obama’s attending now? Haven’t seen the photo ops.

    Probably because he didn’t do photo ops with him?
