Donald Trump is a pathological liar, blatant racist, unrepentant sexual predator, cruel bully and a pitiful buffoon, in short, he’s the antithesis of all the values that evangelicals claim to cherish.
Yet he’s worshipped by white evangelicals, because unlike genuine evangelical former presidents like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, he doesn’t just give lip service to evangelicals, he’s gone out of his way to enshrine their deepest prayers into law. He’s appointed dozens of pro-life federal judges and chosen two pro-life judges to serve as justices on the Supreme Court. He relocated the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel, and he has ostracized the Palestinians and embraced the Zionist government of Israel.
Trump is a lifelong Democrat and he’s not of the evangelical faith, but he’s deeply aware that the only way he can win reelection is if he retains the fanatical support of evangelicals, and therefore he will do anything to curry favor with them.
Still it’s puzzling why white evangelicals haven’t dumped Trump, knowing that one of their own is waiting in the wings. Mike Pence is ramrod straight, would never cheat on Mother, and he’s so anally-retentive evangelical that you couldn’t pull out a toothpick from his anus.
White evangelicals will never hop on the impeachment bandwagon, they prefer the short-fingered vulgarian bully over the mild-mannered milquetoast Pence. It’s Trump the obscene bully who has beaten the holy hell out of the Godless liberals and enacted their agenda into law.
Don’t wait on evangelicals to abandon Trump, they are as pragmatic as they are hypocritical, and they will cling on to him until the bitter end.
