Oh, this is going to leave a mark.

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 claimed in a new book.
The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the book before it was published, reported one passage in which Cohen details what happened after Trump met with prominent evangelical leaders at Trump Tower in 2016 before winning the presidency.
After the meeting was over, Cohen says Trump said: “Can you believe that bulls—? Can you believe people believe that bulls—?”
“The cosmic joke was that Trump convinced a vast swathe of working-class white folks in the Midwest that he cared about their well-being,” Cohen writes, according to The Post. “The truth was that he couldn’t care less.”
It’s unclear what meeting Cohen was referencing, but Trump did meet with conservative Christian leaders in New York City in June 2016, according to NPR, which was allowed inside the private event.
So it was recently revealed that trump called fallen military members “losers” and “suckers” and now we learn that he also has no respect for the evangelicals that make up a large portion of his supporters.
If Trump next insults the KK that will mark the last of his rabid support base.
