The Pastor Who Called Trump's White House ‘Holy Ground' Is Raking in the Bucks
The One Voice Prayer Movement launched out of the White House a year ago by Pastor Paula White is a case study in how to leverage religious connections for political gain. Appointed special adviser to the Office of Faith and Opportunity initiative by President Trump, White is mobilizing religious-right leaders to promote Trump's Reopen America message and defend his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. 

She sends out regular "prayer alerts" that read like press releases, touting the president's leadership with a line tacked on urging people to keep praying for Trump. With polls showing support for Trump slipping among evangelicals, the 54-year-old televangelist has become a key player in quelling skepticism about his leadership, acting as a bridge between him and the Christian right community.  

White's supporters see her as an agent sent by God to ensure Trump's re-election, and she claims to have had a "divine encounter" at the White House that gave her "every authority to declare the White House as holy ground because I was standing there and where I stand is holy."

John Oliver Loses It on Tucker Carlson Over Protest Coverage: ‘Fuck You!'
HBOOn Sunday night, John Oliver kicked off his Last Week Tonight monologue by addressing the protests that have spread across the nation in response to the captured-on-video killing of George Floyd, who begged and pleaded for his life as then-Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin grinded his knee into his neck for nine excruciating minutes.

"Look, it's been a truly brutal week with protests across the country in response to the horrific killing of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police, and there is clearly a lot to discuss here: How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct both in Minneapolis and in the nation at large, and how that misconduct is in and of itself built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color," explained Oliver.

He continued: "There is so much to say here—some of it complicated, much of it all too clear—or, you know, you could just go on TV, open up your mouth, and let this shit fall out."
