Tennessee Presidential Hopeful Running On Platform Of Reuniting Church And State: VIDEO

Darrell Trigg

Darrell Trigg of Tennessee has deeply-founded moral and religious convictions, and if elected president in 2016 he would have them enshrined into law. He would hope to abolish the separation of church and state and usher in new laws such as:

  • Mandatory Bible lessons for K-12 public school students
  • Ending legal recognition of homosexuality and removing gays from television
  • Banning nudity from the internet
  • Capping executive salaries at $300K
  • Raising the drinking age to 25

So, American Sharia law, but with less stonings. It's unclear to whom Trigg is attempting to appeal with his Christian Party platform as a great many of his goals hold no appeal for either liberals or conservatives, and raising the legal drinking age by 4 years isn't going to win many converts among the young voter demographic. Perhaps he's trusting God to pull him through, but he really hasn't got a prayer.

You can watch his (very long) announcement of his intent to run and explanation of his platform AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. At least he'd be reasonable about executive salaries...

    But if you take all the nudity off of the Internet and the gays off of TV,what would be left?

  5. It's not "less" stonings. It's "fewer" stonings.

  7. Thanks for the grammar lesson, fellow ANON!

    Every four years, several dozen candidates get on the ballot in at least one state (New Hampshire being the most popular) for president. Technically, these people are "running for president", but having got on the ballot in only a few states, they have no mathematical chance of winning. Many of these types are a bit mental, which can also be said of many of the mainstream candidates.

  8. @josher - trigg was "raised" in virginia, not tennessee. for his next move, i suggest russia...he'd feel much more at home.

    those silly rabbits keep forgetting the separation of church and state is to protect the state, not the church.

  11. Banning nudity from the internet?!??!!?

    He does know that it's the reddest of states that are the ones watching the most internet porn, right. He just doomed himself with that one.

  15. Reunited should have quotes. In the US, church & state were NEVER united.

  16. I want to know who the set decorator was. He/She should be fired and never be allowed to work again.

    One tiny little oval frame on a wall behind the desk...and an open door to the bathroom!??

    Get some "GAY" in your life buddy. You are in dire need of it. And a speech coach wouldn't hurt either.

  23. Drinking age at 25? Well that's one way to get the youth vote out.

  24. Do you think his wife has ever blown him?

    Posted by: Fartbongo | May 3, 2014 2:18:16 PM

  25. What an Anti-American a-ho!!! Needs to be deported to old Nazi Germany or Transylvania under Vlad the Impaler.

    Oh.. Fartbongo... She can't blow him. His clit is too small to get a grip. She is the top in their relationship. He's just her "finger puppet". And what to Right Wing Nazi women do with finger puppets?
