Robert George, professor and former chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, took to Twitter to express his criticism of the president’s comparison.

“For heaven's sake (I'm speaking literally here), Mr. President you are not ‘like the King of Israel.’ You are certainly not ‘like the second coming of God,’” George tweeted.

“Support for you is not a test of Jewish loyalty. Why retweet nutty, and to religious ears deeply offensive, talk like this?”
