Listen: Mr. Eric Metaxas, Donald Trump, Barack Obama discussed on Eric Metaxas
"My introduction of Eric Metaxas. Was the challenge that I set for myself in the way of thinking just the right adjective, Eric has a English major s myself. So I think you'll appreciate this. I said about to write us an introduction in such a way that if someone asked me to define Eric by one single word just what that what would that word be? Now, it's not easy. He's to multifaceted, for example, if I were to mention the name of Ronald Reagan to you number of your might quickly come to the word conservative fireworks to mention Barack Obama are Nancy Pelosi. Most of you would probably think of the word liberal. Some might use. Okay. If I were to say Bret cabin all your might say courageous. But who is Eric Metaxas? So let's try intellectual now that's a good fit. He need only. Listen to Eric for a few minutes read, a single one of his biographies or essays or opinions or works of poetry to know that he is incredibly sharp. He's what we call whip smart. Very quick wit and intelligent. But that doesn't completely do the trick for Eric. Does it? How 'bout Evangelos? Indeed, he is certainly that recall from his stunning remarks before the national prayer breakfast and two thousand twelve. In an audience that included the aforementioned President Obama and Pelosi. God is not fooled. He famously said that morning in Washington DC. Let's try prolific here. Certainly that to the author of Martin Luther if you can keep it bomb Hoffa near a Kohl's seven seven women amazing grace, the list goes on and on to include thirty children's books as well. I love the title of this most recent Donald draining the swamp. His works have been translated the world over humorist would be in our vocabulary to describe him to his humor pieces for the monthly the New York Times. And elsewhere are the stuff of legend. I'm the president omnipresent. Not like God mind. Do that Michael a bit too far? But I'll be labor some prepositions here. You'll find Eric across the airwaves on Fox News in the Wall Street Journal as an MC. Published mung twenty languages amid the bestseller lists inside magazines around the network, speaking at commencement ceremonies and behind some of the best biographies you've ever read. Let's try this last more modern day adjective on for size Trumpian. It may have come as a surprise to many. But for an intellectual such as air to come to the fore in two thousand and sixteen in support of Donald Trump in opposition to politically correct lip-service practiced by many was only natural to quote, Eric. Not only can we vote for Trump. We must vote for Trump with all of us, foibles peccadilloes and metaphor cohorts. He is nonetheless, the last best hope of keeping America from sliding into oblivion the tank the abyss dustbin of history if you will. Right. Like that. Tries you will as I have one quickly discovers that it's impossible to define Eric with a single adjective as I set forth to do. He's kindly agreed to sit with me for an interview this evening on a number of topics, ladies and gentlemen, please. Join me in welcoming for a conversation on stage at the Reagan library, Mr. Eric Metaxas.."
