Donald Trump is worried that there’s some erosion among the rock-solid support he enjoys among white evangelicals. I don’t think Trump has anything to worry about on that front, evangelicals regard their Orange Messiah with awe and reverence. They are blind to his warts and festering sores, they are too preoccupied fawning over the lies, racism, homophobia and misogyny that emanates from his sphincter-shaped mouth.
Nevertheless, in an effort to shore up his support among evangelicals, Trump had an interview with a pro-Trump evangelical minister on April at Mar-a-Lago.
In the interview with a sycophant from the Victory Channel, Trump reminisced about his Christian upbringing and claimed that he regularly attended Sunday school. This is just another whopper from the liar-in-chief, there is no evidence that Trump’s father, a ruthless businessman who was solely focused on accumulated wealth at the expense of ordinary citizens, raised him in the Christian faith.
He told the interviewer that the Bible is even better than his coffee table picture book. “I’m glad to hear you say that,” the evangelical fluffer said reassuringly.
Evangelicals know damn well that Trump who has a penchant for holding the Bible upside down at photo-ops, and who attended church only at Easter and Christmas during his scandal-riddled term has no Christian inclinations whatsoever.
Evangelicals will continue to support the amoral sociopath for pragmatic reasons: his hatred of immigrants and the LGBT community, and his commitment to appoint anti-abortion judges.
Trump can stop pretending to be a Christian, evangelicals have shown no evidence that they will stop getting spiritually high by sniffing the odor that emanates from his rectum, regardless what crimes or sins he commits.
