White To The Rescue?

Trump also isn't shy about naming the number of big-name prosperity preachers who have longstanding relationships with his soul, or at least his money: Joel Osteen, head of one of the largest churches in the United States, refers to the businessman as a "friend" of his ministry, and Paula White, pastor of a church in Orlando, Florida, is now known as Trump's "God whisperer."

And while Evangelicals breathed a sign of relief when Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family declared that Trump had recently turned to Jesus (contradicting White), some supporters - the important ones aren't buying it.

Many of the blue-chip companies that both parties rely on to help pay for their quadrennial conventions have dramatically scaled back or canceled altogether their commitments to the GOP gathering this year, privately citing the reputational risk of associating with Trump. The cavalcade of corporate names fleeing the event has left convention planners facing a cash crunch -- a state of affairs revealed Thursday by the leak of a letter from the Cleveland host committee to Sheldon Adelson begging the billionaire for a $6 million bailout to cover their shortfall.

Hmmm.. Maybe Paula White can cover the shortfall.

*Haskel Lookstein -- former head of the elite Ramaz School and the former rabbi of Kehilath Jeshurun, a tony Modern Orthodox synagogue on the Upper East Side -- said he backed out because his planned invocation had become too "political." Lookstien converted Ivanka Trump, but come of his conversions have been called into question.
