Bill Maher finds something nice to say about Donald Trump.
HBO’s Real Time host Bill Maher thanks Donald Trump for exposing the shameless hypocrisy of evangelical Christians.
Beginning his New Rules segment, Maher declared:
Before leaving this election behind, we must all thank Donald Trump for the one good thing he did: he exposed Evangelicals – who are big Trump supporters – as the shameless hypocrites they’ve always been.
Maher noted that this year’s presidential election is the first in recent years where the GOP didn’t use faith as a selling point, noting:
It’s hard to bring up the Ten Commandments when your candidate has spent most his life breaking all of them.
At one point in the New Rules segment Maher cried:
Trump has nothing in common with Jesus! Jesus healed the blind, Trump mocks the handicapped. Jesus turned the other cheek, Trump grabs your pussy. Jesus turned water into wine, Trump just whines.
The Bible says, ‘Thou shalt not covet they neighbor’s wife.’ Trump says, ‘Fine, what about my daughter?’
Despite the fact that multiple genuine Christians were running fore the GOP nomination, Maher observed that the evangelicals selected Trump:
Finally, Maher praised the Mormons, because many Mormons possess the common sense and decency to reject Trump:
But they went for the foul-mouthed, thrice-married pussy grabber.
… I never thought I would hear myself say this, but let’s hear it for the Mormons. The Mormons! Who bailed on Trump “bigly.”
White evangelicals go for Trump over Hillary 75% to 14%. But only 19% of Utah Mormons have a favorable view of Orange Hitler. Because, apparently, the Mormons believe you shouldn’t vote for a lying, infantile scumbag just because he’s on your team. And they’re Mormons. They’ll believe almost anything!
They believe underwear has magic powers! And you get your own planet when you die! And Adam and Eve were born in Missouri! And Jesus hung with the Indians, who were Jewish!
They let Donny Osmond claim he’s “a little bit rock and roll.”
But ask one if Trump would make a good president, and they’re like, “Do I look like I was born yesterday?”
Maher is right. It is stunning to note that the majority of evangelical Christians are happy to support a candidate with a long and well documented history of racism, misogyny, and corruption, a man that brags about being able to sexually assault women with impunity.
Bottom line: Evangelical Christians are shameless hypocrites who reject morality and decency in favor of an immoral, authoritarian, bully.
