The Church of Satan has made it very clear that Donald Trump is not one of them after Trump was photographed during a visit to Saudi Arabia in what many said looked like he was taking part in a satanic ritual.
PRESIDENT TRUMP SAUDI ARABIA VISIT WAS MEME HEAVEN
President Donald Trump made the first official trip of his presidency to Saudi Arabia and he was captured alongside President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi* and King Salman bin Albdulaziz Al Saud, touching the orb. The Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak was also pictured.
The photograph had been taken while President Trump was on a tour of the Riyadh Global Centre For Combatting Extremist Ideology. The group photo was taken in reaction to a wall filled with computer screens coming online when they touched the orb.
The internet was filled with lots of humorous reactions to the photograph, with the photograph, of course, being something that caption writers have only dreamed about. One group was protesting the unwanted association though due to the fact that the photograph did look as though the party might be doing something evil and was up to no good.
PHOTO LOOKS LIKE SATANIC RITUAL BUT CHURCH OF SATAN SAYS NOT
Some people had said that it looked as though they were taking part in some type of satanic ritual and it was not long before the official blue tick account of the Church of Satan posted through Twitter and put themselves at a distance from Donald Trump.
The Church of Satan posted the photograph and they did not seem to see the funny side as they wrote that for clarification the group was not taking part in a satanic ritual. It seems that perhaps they had been worried that they group would have negative connotations and taint the reputation of Satan. So not even a cult that worships Satan wants to be associated with Trump it seems.
SPARKLY PRINCESS CURTSY AND OFF-BEAT DANCING
This is not the first time that was ridiculed during his Saudi Arabia visit. Trump had been said to have made a curtsy that likened him to a sparkly princess and he was laughed at in the media for his off-beat dancing when a traditional Saudi sword ceremony had been taking place. If nothing else the visit had brought about a lot of meme moments.
Users on Twitter said that the photograph of Trump and the King with their hands on the glowing orb was like something from a Harry Potter film. When the leaders put their hands on the orbit lit up, however, it did so to activate a computer wall that was in front of them and not captured on the photograph. The computers are said to target and monitor activity by terrorists online.
Other users on Twitter likened the scene to something out of Lord of the Rings, with the caption of finding the hobbit, while another constructed a scene with the Wicked Witch of the West looking down on Trump as he held the glowing orb. Star Wars and the Illuminati were also referenced to the picture but no one from the Illuminati organization has come forward to disclaim that Trump is involved with them.
For clarification, this is not a Satanic ritual. pic.twitter.com/CccP39fqN4
