The Vocations department of the Church of England has congratulated the United States of America for taking the bold step of appointing its first part-time President.

Mr Trump indicates the amount of time he is available to do the actual Presiding thing.

“Here in the Church of England we have for many years had part-time clergy, which we now refer to as Self-Supporting Ministers,” explains Canon Dirk Otterly, Tweaker of Vocations Spreadsheets at Church House. “We find that they bring a wealth of experience from a variety of fields, though few have Mr. Trump’s rather unique track record and even fewer are prepared to attack and mock specific minority groups within their parishes to firm up their PCC’s support.  The United States is to be commended for this bold step of letting someone so emotionally fragile take on such a role. Their idea of letting him carry on working for himself pretty much as he did before and limiting his duties to just Presiding now and again when he’s not busy is similar to how many of our own part-time clergy are used.”

Mr Trump tweeted “I thank the Church of England bigly for pioneering part-time Presidency. Smart.”

The Church of England prays daily that God would give wisdom to all in authority. No exceptions.
