Getting Them Off The Cross

Joy Reid Asks Michele Bachmann: 'So Is God Taking Down Trump?' | Crooks and Liars:

...And the American Evangelical movement is standing by Trump. That's disgusting.

Political scientist and author Corey Robin said it best:

....this tape shouldn't be used to delegitimate Trump; he's already done that six thousand times over, and I doubt anyone will be surprised by what he says here. What it should be used to delegitimate is the Christian Right, the overwhelming majority of which—according to the latest polls—is standing with this man who stands for everything they claim to oppose. Rather than discredit Trump, this tape should destroy that movement, its leaders, and the cottage industry of enabling journalists and academics who've told us for decades that we need to take "people of faith"—by which they mean the Christian Right—more seriously.
