It goes without saying that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has a lot of personal baggage.
That said, Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson believes Trump has a simple way to absolve himself of all his past scandals in one fell swoop: Come to Jesus and get born again.
In a video posted by Right Wing Watch, Robertson says that all of Trump’s past sins could be forgiven and forgotten in a snap if he just makes a high-profile conversion to Evangelical Christianity.
“If he but be born again, he could then tell them, ‘That’s the old me, I’ve been born again, this is the new Donald Trump,'” Robertson said.
Robertson also fantasized about being the person who officially brought Trump to Jesus, and imagined being named The Donald’s “spiritual adviser” in his White House.
“Now, that would send a shock wave through America,” he said. “The left-wingers would be jumping out of buildings… I don’t even know if that’s possible or not, but it’s just a thought.”
The problem, however, is that many people would expect to see a post-conversion Trump behave differently than a pre-conversion Trump.
Would the “new” Trump really be able to refrain from mocking people with disabilities, from calling women “bimbos” and from running scam universities designed to squeeze money from desperate people?
Only the Lord knows for certain.

These global banks defy sanctions and send trillions to terrorists and criminals — and the Justice Department lets them
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists revealed in a shocking expose that international banks are skirting U.S. sanctions and allowing trillions of dollars to flow to terrorists, criminals and oligarchs.
In a Sunday report, the ICIJ called out JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank, Deutsche Bank and Bank of New York Mellon for refusing to comply with American sanctions, U.S. government documents reveal.
Other banks have even defied money laundering crackdowns, the report said and allowed "staggering sums of illicit cash" to flow from shady characters and criminal networks.
‘He truly despises Black women’: Cohen walks through Trump’s outright ‘hatred’ for women of color
It has become clear to anyone paying attention that President Donald Trump has serious problems with people of color. But his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, revealed that it goes much deeper.
"Trump is a racist white supremacist" is a story that may as well be "water is wet," but Cohen explained Sunday in an interview with MSNBC's Al Sharpton that Trump has a particular issue with women of color.
"The fact is, as much as he has a disdain for Black people, he truly despises Black women because he doesn't know how to handle them," Cohen said. "He doesn't know what to do."
At a rally on Friday in Minnesota, Sharpton noted the "mostly white" crowd was one that Trump heralded for having "good genes," meaning white genes.
