By Washington Times. Donald Trump Jr. weighed in Monday on House Democrats’ “amen and a-woman” prayer, calling it “insane.”
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri Democrat, delivered Sunday the opening prayer of the 117th Congress, ending it with the traditional “amen” and then tacking on “a-woman,” drawing rebukes from stunned Republicans and others.
“Amen means ‘So Be It’ in Latin,” tweeted the president’s eldest son. “It isn’t a gendered word but that didn’t stop them from being insane. Is this what you voted for?”

It isn’t a gendered word but that didn’t stop them from being insane.
Is this what you voted for?

By The Federalist. House Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri ended the opening prayer for the 117th Congress Sunday with “amen and a-woman,” in an apparent effort to be gender- and deity-inclusive while omitting “aperson.”
The term “amen” is not even a reference to the two sexes, however, as Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Guy Reschenthaler pointed out on Twitter along with a clip of the pointless passive-progressive virtue signaling.

Amen is Latin for "so be it."
It's not a gendered word.
Unfortunately, facts are irrelevant to progressives. Unbelievable. pic.twitter.com/FvZ0lLMDDr

Cleaver, an ordained United Methodist pastor who appears clueless about basic biblical knowledge such as the meaning of the Hebrew word “amen,” offered the House prayer as Democrats in the lower chamber have prioritized removing references to the two sexes in House business in an effort to “promote inclusion and diversity.”
I was honored to deliver the opening prayer for the 117th Congress. May God bless each and every Representative with the courage and wisdom to defend our democracy and the liberties we all hold so dearly. https://t.co/z3vkWOk7lc
