Trump and the conservative eangelicals

He appeared at the National Prayer Breakfast and said this today:

“I will never let you down. I can say that. Never."

What he meant by that was, "there's nothing I can do to let you down because you are all a bunch of cynical hypocrites who will support anything I do."

Honestly, the worship of Trump by these people remains one of the great revelations of our time. These people are fundamentally dishonest and we do not have to pay any attention to them going forward except as just another right wing faction that plays partisan hardball. That's fine. It's their privilege as Americans. But there need not ever again be any presumption of sincere moral commitment.
