“President Donald Trump spoke condescendingly about evangelical Christians after holding a meeting with religious leaders before the 2016 election, his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen has said in a new book.
Cohen, who broke with Trump to cooperate with the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, is releasing a memoir Tuesday titled ‘Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump.’
Donald Trump is a narcissist and he doesn’t have room in his heart to love or respect anyone. He sees everyone as pawns and useful idiots, and he doesn’t suffer fools gladly if they don’t serve his needs.
It’s manifestly clear that Trump hates the military, the intelligentsia, reporters, but I’m not surprised that he hates his most loyal supporters, white evangelicals as well.
According to Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen, after holding a meeting with evangelical Christians, before the 2016 election, Trump told him: Can you believe that bullshit? Can you believe people believe that bullshit?
Trump regularly meets with evangelical leaders, not because he values their spiritual guidance and prayers, it’s their blind support that he values.
White evangelicals have taken a leap of faith, swallowed the Kool-Aid and in their ignorance and spiritual blindness they see Trump as their Messiah who will make America Great Again.
Like a brilliant con artist Trump recognizes marks and the famously germophobe even allows evangelicals to place their hands on him, as they pray over him.
Nobody should be surprised that the amoral Trump considers the religious beliefs of evangelicals unadulterated bullshit. The short-fingered vulgarian must be grateful that his evangelical supporters don’t expect him to attend church, hold Bible studies in the Oval Office, be faithful to his wife or live by the Golden Rule. In fact, they look the other way when he grabs pussy, utters obscenities, treats subordinates like shit and demonizes immigrants and people of color.
White evangelicals are cool with Trump as long as he holds the Bible upside down in photo ops, and appoints pro-life judges.
The only thing that Trump has in common with white evangelicals is their racism, that’s the bond that cements their relationship. So, I’m not surprised Trump uttered, “Can you believe that bullshit?” after meeting with evangelical leaders. I also wouldn’t be surprised if he told Cohen, “They can all rot in hell for all I care. However, did you notice the Rev. Paula White? She’s one hot evangelical bitch, I think I’m going to make her my main spiritual adviser.”
