  1. if this works it would be huge. Biden / Harris 2020

  2. I would pay good money to hear t’rump attempt to lead a church in the Lord’s Prayer.
    I bet it would not go well. 🤔😅😂

    • @Thomas Reedy The classic “No True Scotsman” fallacy.

    • @Tess Rosales If he did it would sound something like this Our fuehrer, no farter, oh, father. Who is upstairs in haven. Heaven? I didn’t know he was upstairs. Eric check up stairs for your father. How shallow is your shame. How ‘hollowed is your name ” WoW this is hard and people say these prayers? Ivanka come finish this . Ivanka bursts into flames as she gets up on the stage.

    • @Richard Reynolds They are hatching like fleas on a cat.

    • @John Blick You are the two. I mean second. 😛😝

    • @Ro G LOLZ! Clever!

  3. I’d rather be an American than a trump supporter, …………..but you can’t be both

    • @Kevin White Yes, I know, I sometimes can’t resist though. It’s too tempting. Take care.

      @humanistheart — I understood the poster perfectly well. And given the support my reply received, and the lack of support for your comment, I would gather that my time was well spent. Yours not so much. Toss off.

    • @Denise Kulawik wow, that’s right out of an episode of Orville. Thumbs up won’t make your post any more accurate

    • Denise Kulawik | October 20, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      @humanistheart — And all the arguing in the world won’t make your messaging more credible, effective or compelling. Nobody gives a sh*t about your opinion. Figure it out.

    • @Donald Holcomb It’s a literal border war, mine are just across the state line.☹

    Trump uses others and groups when it suits him.

    • Yep. You could have stopped after others. It always suits him, and then they are thrown under the bus when he’s done. It’s what evil does. Never underestimate evil.

      He can use groups but not The Most High God.

      And the Evangelicals used Trump. They didn’t care about the rest of the country, or the world. They are just like him. Maybe they can recite the Lord’s Prayer and hold a bible right side up, and spout verses. But it’s the same selfish rot inside.

    • Lisa Jane Thyberg | October 20, 2020 at 5:15 PM | Reply

      Uses, until used up then throws them out,…


  5. Only took them 4 years. Pathetic.

  6. “…why now?” Because it’s hitting them in their pockets now…, offerings are low. That’s all that matters to these people.

    Awe the poor evangelicals don’t like what they helped create? Perhaps next time don’t give a failing narcissist an actual god complex by calling him the “chosen one”.

  8. They held their noses and backed him to get a stacked court. Now they no longer need him.

  9. He made sure to show us all how much money hes giving the church. its all part of the trump show. like everything else trump does “IT’S FAKE”

    trump handing out twenties like he’s at the strip club.

    IF you’re actually a Christian it really comes down to asking yourself WWJD? STOP TRUMP!!!

  12. Evangelical Christians, specifically the ones who practice the prosperity gospel, should have their tax exemption removed if they are going to preach politics in church.

  13. So called Evangelicals are not Christians as they claim to be.
    They are like the man they support and praise as shown in this video corrupt and profit driven.
    Totally against everything Jesus preached.

  14. These guys so called evangelicals are a joke. How many of the 10 commandants has Trump broken. That is why people turn their back

  15. Evangelical Christians are still voting for him, despite what he says and his action, then they have the gall to talk about morals

    • @Linda jackson 100% truth!

    • @Diane Hooper Who would? They’re despicable, either racists, or willing to support Trump’s racism for personal profit. Either way not the sort decent people associate with imo.

    • @Noel Hausler Once I quit organized religion I actually felt more confident about who I am. I can still be good, loving and caring. I’m more spiritual and nature is my church where I go for solace.

    • @Ricardo Banta If they had TRUE morals then they couldn’t be bought ever.

    • @Diane Hooper if you are right then one of the world’s oldest profession should br a MYTH but it is not…what profession you might ask it is written in the bible…big hint red hair and a “woman”

  16. The most religious people I know are actually the most non loving people I know. They hide behind a wall of Christianity but their actions are anything but Christian.

    • So True!!!

    • Amen!
      The people at Alliance Defending Freedom, Family Research Council, American Family Association, Liberty Counsel, Heritage Foundation, Claremont Institute, et cetera believe in prosperity gospel, not the Beatitudes and Jesus’ other teachings.
      They care for nothing but the caste system that keeps #TheReligiousWhite men up top and gays, Blacks, Jews, the disabled, the impoverished, immigrants, and other “historically marginalized groups” stuck in the sub-basement as Untouchables.

    • Absolutely true I knew a daily church who would stab everyone in the back the second she was out.

    • prenell Ferguson | October 20, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      So true!

    • I agree with you Dawn.

  17. Everyone should start chanting, “Trump is a criminal” “Trump is a criminal” so we can all get a good laugh when he falls apart.

  18. Trump may have kept non believers from Jesus Christ more than Satan himself.

    • AGREED!!!

    • Let’s just say trump exposed christians for what they really are

    • @Bold Ruler Satan has a warm personality

    • Festerbestertester6 | October 20, 2020 at 4:29 PM | Reply

      Trump and his supporters have created a new religion around “Q” (leaders of the QAnon cult). They don’t even know who Q really is, but the idea excites them greatly. Jesus was a socialist, so they are replacing Jesus with the mysterious Q. You don’t see any “Jesus” shirts at Trump rallies. It’s all Q now, and the occasional “God” shirt.

    • And he has changed people’s values forever. He has made man’s basest behaviors acceptable. Name-calling and bullyings were deemed unacceptable behavior in our society. I am older and was taught better, but I teach young people and had started to see the change in behavior as a result of Trump’s behavior and society’s tolerance for it.

  19. Conservatives want to vote for a president who held an inverted Bible, who wanted to build his Trump Tower on the site of an old Catholic cemetery, who had a sexual relationship with minors, and I think that’s the worst choice they’ve ever made.

    • Lisa Zabriskie | October 20, 2020 at 5:58 PM | Reply

      And I’m sure you could have kept going for a while all his “Christian” behavior. Stay well. Biden-Harris save our democracy. He’s too friendly with dictators.

    • @ Alex Murphy, those are not conservatives.Those are Evangelicals….

    • Shellie Wolske | October 20, 2020 at 8:09 PM | Reply

      No, conservatives do not. They have dumped trump. His only supporters left are racist cults

  20. Trump goes to see a proctologist more often than he goes to church.
