A group of Republicans opposed to President Donald Trump is calling out one of his most reliable voting blocs: evangelical Christians.
The video by the Lincoln Project begins, appropriately, with a Biblical quote:
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
The video combines footage of some of Trump’s most outrageous and outright un-Christian comments with clips of evangelical leaders praising him.
“If this is the best American Christians can do, then God help us all,” the spot concludes.
Evangelicals are the low hanging fruit in America and are often targeted by unsavory politicians because they are simpletons who are easily tricked into rallying around candidates or causes that rarely serve their best interests.
This is the damage that blind faith has on critical thinking skills.
And politicians like Donald Trump know it, and know how to take advantage of it.
