White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci with his Master, President Donald J. Trump

URBANDALE, IOWA – Former legislator and outspoken Iowa right-wing Christian leader Bob Vanderplaats gave President Donald Trump and his toady Anthony Scaramucci a vicious tongue-lashing after Scaramucci this week unloaded a tirade of obscenities and innuendos against now-fired White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

Scaramucci’s onslaught against Priebus made the rounds on the national news, leaving many to shake their heads at his accusations of leaks, profanity and sexual innuendo.  The outburst spawned the following statement from Bob Vanderplaats of the Family Leader, a group which says it aims for “Christ-like leadership in the home, the church, and the government”:

Witnessing the daily White House drama is exceptionally disturbing. It should be to all Americans. This “people’s home” is a symbol for hope and freedom and a beacon of much earned respect to the watching world.

To say the conduct we have been witnessing recently is unacceptable and not representative of the “spirit” of America is a gross understatement. The current occupants are found wanting with their leaks, double talk, defense of the indefensible, vulgarity, and their lack of overall respect for each other and, most importantly, their embrace of the people’s sacred trust.

Freshly appointed Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci recently stated that a fish stinks from the head down. I agree. This is why President Trump must take quick and decisive action to preserve the legacy of our great republic. The issues of health care, border security, infrastructure, and the economy are no longer the most pressing issues. It is now honor, integrity, trust, and the restoration of decency.

Yes, the world is watching. And, more importantly, our children are watching.

Mr. President, it is time to look in the mirror, accept responsibility, apologize to the American people, and declare an end to this behavior immediately. While what I’m urging may not be the “Trump” brand, it is the brand of a leader. We need a leader. You must lead!

I suggest you lead by first washing out Mr. Scaramucci’s mouth with a bar of soap. After a thorough rinsing, strip his credentials and escort him personally off the White House grounds

You frequently reverberate your campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again!” I’d suggest we keep America great by applying the lessons of my dad’s generation, the World War II generation, the greatest generation.

His generation didn’t become great by bombastic and slanderous vulgarity towards their enemies and, for sure, not their family, friends, and fellow patriots. They became great due to their sacrificial leadership by putting the cause of their mission above themselves while standing in the gap for others … with humility, honor, integrity, respect, and genuine love. This is their legacy.

Bob Vander Plaats, in Mason City, Iowa, back in 2012

So, Mr. President, if you desire to be a great leader by keeping America great, I encourage you to model these attributes.

And, to my fellow faith leaders: I urge you to fulfill your calling to be the prophetic voice to the king – in this case, President Trump. Your silence is an assent of approval.

The prophet Nathan confronted King David by saying, “You are the man, and you do wrong.”

Nathan fulfilled his calling, and David repented.

There’s no guarantee President Trump will repent and change his ways. This said, it is still our duty to privately and publicly confront, so our testimony is not compromised to a culture that hungers for true hope.

We must also be fervently praying President Trump embraces the high calling of leadership. America desperately needs it!

For the family,

Bob Vander Plaats

    More evidence of the fractured Republican Party. Donald Trump is destroying the R’s from the inside out. His base continues to dwindle as more conservatives see what a disgusting person he is.

      About the only factually correct post you’ve ever done. Our only saving Grace is that it happens in a time when the Democratic party is so obsessed with identity politics for the minorites that it cannot obtain majority support.

      Keep telling yourself that while nervously wringing your hands. We’ll lose Congress majority in two years and the White House in for thanks to that douchebag and his Russian whore

    That is rich Mr. Vander Platts.
    Do you want Donald Trump to correct Anthony ‘the mooch” Scaramucci’s language…. ya right.
    The Mooch is just a mini Donald Trump as far a foul mouth goes.

    “come back to New Hampshire, and you can tell them to go Fu*k themselves!” – Donald Trump
    ““beat the sh*t out of anyone” – Donald Trump

        Who gives a shit if he used colorful words? Big damn deal. All I care about is stopping the Demoncrap TRAITORS who are leaking secrets in the White House. Find them, prosecute them and then HANG them along with the rest of the Demoncraps.
