New Report Says Trump Secretly Mocks His Christian Supporters

A new article in The Atlantic by McKay Coppins is exposing Donald Trump’s religious hypocrisy and his attitude towards his evangelical and religious supporters just days after his nomination of a controversial cult member to the Supreme Court.

Coppins details several examples of Trump acting like a good Christian for his evangelical base at public gatherings or other photo ops, then immediately mocking them once the meeting is over. Trump’s former lawyer and personal fixer Michael Cohen is quoted throughout the piece, saying Trump would ridicule people of faith, calling their asks for money “scams” and calling pastors “hustlers”.

Trump’s appeal to the religious right has always seemed like an odd disconnect, considering his well-documented affairs with adult film actresses during all three of his marriages. Even the most devoted evangelicals have looked the other way in the name of stacking the Supreme Court with conservative justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade, with some extremists going as far as to claim that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s death was a “move of God” to keep Trump in office for another four years.

The comments attributed to Trump echo his feelings towards the military and others who have chosen a path other than an obvious money-making one.
