Donald Trump campaign rallies are composed of racist rednecks, white evangelical reprobates, embittered blue-collar whites and a sprinkling of Uncle Toms and establishment Republicans.
At a campaign rally in Missouri, on the eve of the midterm elections, Trump`s stump speech was interrupted by first responders tending to a supporter who had feinted.
The crowd burst into a rendition of “Amazing Grace,” which might seem incongruous at a political rally, but not at a Trump event where everybody is familiar with arguably the best known hymn in Christianity.
Trump was forced to shut his trap, as he wandering aimlessly on the stage, pointing to the singing crowd, while privately thinking, “What a bunch of rubes.”
Needless to say Trump didn`t join in singing because Mr. Two Corinthians doesn`t know the words to the most popular hymn in the world.
This incident illustrates the symbiosis between the amoral short-fingered vulgarian and his white evangelical following. White evangelicals know damn well that Trump isn`t a moral person, let alone a born-again Christian, but they tolerate, and even rationalize, his corruption ,vulgarity and immorality as long as he continues to appoint conservative judges.
It`s certainly a testimony to God`s Amazing Grace that He didn`t smite that campaign rally with fire from above.
