Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Former congresswoman and presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann said in January that she had asked God whether she should run for former Sen. Al Franken's (D-MN) seat. On Monday, she announced his answer: No. Or rather, no answer. "It became very clear to me that I wasn't hearing any call from God to do this," she told Jan Markell, president of Olive Tree Ministries, in an interview flagged by Minnesota Public Radio. According to Bachmann, God instructed her to run for Congress in 2006 and for the Republican nomination for President in 2012 (she placed sixth in the Iowa caucuses and dropped out of the race soon after).

Shouldn't ask a question before the Lord answers the phone. You won't get a response.

God actually appeared to Bachmann is the form of a burning blue bush and told her not to run.

It was more direct and less ambiguous than a burning bush.
