As I said this morning on CNN (no video available yet), it doesn’t matter what Trump did with Karen McDougal or whether or not he is lying about it. As long as Trump keeps appointing Supreme Court justices like Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch and continues to give lip service to religious liberty (as understood by conservative evangelicals) he will have the support of evangelicals.
This kind of thing should thus no longer surprise us:
I have not yet heard Jeffress compare Trump’s lack of morality to Ronald Reagan’s indiscretions. Interesting. Actually, I think there are comparisons we can make between Reagan and Trump. For example, evangelicals in pursuit of political power got into bed with both of them. It wasn’t a good idea then (just ask Cal Thomas) and it isn’t a good idea now.
