Cheeto Jesus Goes Down: Trumpanzees Abandon Ship

Cheeto Jesus Goes Down: Trumpanzees Abandon Ship October 8, 2016

Trumpocalypse: That basket of deplorables just sprung a leak.

Donald Trump’s ship is sinking after being caught on tape bragging about how he can sexually assault women and get away with it because he is “a star.”

The GOP presidential nominee is losing support after admitting that he frequently sexually assaults women with impunity because he is a rich celebrity.

The Washington Post reports at least eight Republican members of Congress have issued a call for Trump to step aside, along with former presidential candidates George E. Pataki, Jon Huntsman Jr., and Carly Fiorina.

Rep. Martha Roby, who represents a Republican district in Alabama, is one of those members of congress urging Trump to step down. In a statement Roby said she could no longer vote for Trump, noting:

As disappointed as I’ve been with his antics throughout this campaign, I thought supporting the nominee was the best thing for our country and our party. Now, it is abundantly clear that the best thing for our country and for our party is for Trump to step aside and allow a responsible, respectable Republican to lead the ticket.

Indeed, NPR reports there is a long list of Republicans now calling for Trump to step aside:

However, Cheeto Jesus has not lost all of his Trumpanzees. Conservative Christian leaders are continuing to support a candidate who brags about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it.

Christian hate group leader Tony Perkins excused Trump’s deplorable behavior in the name of religious liberty:

My personal support for Donald Trump has never been based upon shared values, it is based upon shared concerns about issues such as: justices on the Supreme Court that ignore the constitution, America’s continued vulnerability to Islamic terrorists and the systematic attack on religious liberty that we’ve seen in the last 7 1/2 years.

While Faith & Freedom Coalition leader Ralph Reed also dismissed Trump’s sexual assault of women, arguing that for “voters of faith” Trump’s self-confessed history of sexual assault ranks “very low on their hierarchy of concerns”:

Voters of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defend religious freedom, create jobs, and oppose the Iran nuclear deal. Ten-year-old tapes of private conversation with a television talk show host rank very low on their hierarchy of concerns…

Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas and a member of Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board, said Trump’s comments were “lewd, offensive, and indefensible,” but added that he’s still voting Trump. Because, you know, for conservative Christians, sexual assault ranks very low on their hierarchy of concerns.

Bottom line: Cheeto Jesus is losing support as some of the Trumpanzees abandon ship. However, many conservative Christian leaders are fine with supporting a man who happily brags about sexually assaulting women.
