blog 1- Trump and Pope Francis

This Abstract Proposal will focus on the political memes of Donald Trump related to the Pope Francis and how he criticizes Trumps’ through a religious standpoint. Specially, how Trump issued a press statement claiming, “No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith.”  The memes make fun of Trump’s religious hypocrisy in wave with the Pope.  Trump is only okay with questioning someone’s faith when he does it himself.  Trump also emphasizes himself as being very important and creditable when it comes to some of his political stances, but Pope Francis knocks down all of his creditability through these memes. These memes reinforce the idea that Pope is held at a high standard and people look up to him for guidance and wisdom. Pope Francis’ “stamp of approval” is rejected through these meme related to Trump because he is shown doing the complete opposite of what the Pope believes and preaches about regarding the word of God.  Instead of honoring and making God at the center of his political campaign, Trump has made himself the center of attention.
