Earlier today, while visiting Cleveland, Ohio, a deluded Donald Trump claimed that if Joe Biden wins the election, it would lead to “no religion, no anything, hurt the Bible, hurt God, he’s against God, he’s against guns, he’s against energy.”

Considering Biden is a devout Catholic (with a faith outreach director) who doesn’t tear-gas people to take a cheap photo-op in front of a church he doesn’t even attend… it feels safe to assume Trump is just trying to spread fear among his gullible white evangelical base, the people most likely to fall for his bullshit and the people whose support he can least afford to lose heading into November.
I can’t decide what the Trump game plan is here: Is Biden so weak that he can’t get anything done, or is Biden so powerful that he can DESTROY GOD?! (What is Trump even saying, then, about the weakness of religion?)
I’ll freely admit Biden makes a lot of gaffes. But Trump says the stupid shit right out in the open, and we’re so used to it, this one will barely make a blip on the radar.
Good luck finding white evangelical pastors who have even the mildest courage to say, “I disagree with Biden on many issues, but he will not destroy God.”
