A presidential candidate who cuts money for volunteer firefighters, then organises a christian pray-for-rain event as a substitute. (non-christians welcome to hear the word - but not welcome to speak their heathen perversions).
The fact that such things don't work - that can be hidden with sufficient money and application of the "Big Lie". It never happened.
The First Prophet was Nehemiah Scudder, a backwoods preacher turned President (elected in 2012), then dictator (no elections were held in 2016 or later).
