At Values Voter Summit, Singing ‘Hallelujah’ For God Raising Up Trump

George W. Bush impersonator and author John Morgan

The Values Voter Summit kicked off on Friday morning, with President Donald Trump set to be the star of the morning’s session. But early risers who made their way to a breakfast session sponsored by Christian Healthcare Ministries were treated to another “president” in the form of George W. Bush impersonator John Morgan.

Morgan is promoting his book, “War on Fear”—which comes with a foreword by Alan Robertson of the Duck Dynasty clan—and a new podcast. Morgan drew chuckles with his gentle ribbing of Bush’s idiosyncratic relationship with the English language.

Most painfully, Morgan picked up a guitar and sang a version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which he had turned into a praise song to Donald Trump, beginning with “There is a man whose name is Trump, who kicked my baby brother’s rump…” The assembled conservatives sang along on the chorus.

Morgan’s early start meant he was the first—but certainly not the last—at this year’s Values Voter Summit to declare that Trump’s election was the work of God.

“Folks, I don’t know where we’re going. But I know God’s with us. It’s so exciting to watch the transformation of America taking place right before our eyes. And I know that God raised up Donald Trump for us.”
