CNN host Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday took a hammer to evangelical Christian leaders who are giving President Donald Trump a pass for cheating on his wife with a porn star just months after she’d given birth to their son.
During a segment with Trump supporter Ben Ferguson and GOP strategist Tara Setmayer, Camerota invoked the Bible to expose the hypocrisy of evangelical leaders who are willing to overlook all of Trump’s immoral behavior because he gives them what they want on policy matters.
Camerota started out by noting that evangelical leader Tony Perkins had said this week that Trump gets a “mulligan” from evangelicals for his past indiscretions, while noting that these leaders seem to be ignoring the same scriptures they purport to champion.
“What part of the Seventh Commandment says, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery unless you’re running for president as a Republican?'” she asked Ferguson.
Ferguson replied that he thought it was a mistake for Perkins to say Trump gets a “mulligan,” and he warned that Christian conservatives should stick to advocating for specific issues instead of politicians. However, Ferguson stopped short of calling Perkins a hypocrite, despite the fact that he once said that any politician who broke his oath of marriage to his wife was not to be trusted.
Setmayer, however, had no such qualms and said that these evangelical leaders are hypocrites who are “putting politics over Christian biblical principle.”
Camerota then pivoted back to referencing the Bible and asked the panel, “Which biblical principle was it where Christ referred to ‘the mulligan?'”

Trump blames Ocasio-Cortez for two Democrats who were nearly barred from Israel
President Donald Trump tweeted out Sunday that Democrats are ready to wage war against Israel because the prime minister followed his direction to ban Congresswomen from coming to the country.
Israel backed off after an uprising from both conservative and liberal groups, saying the purpose of any international visit should be to help educate, regardless of the support for the country.
"House Democrats want to take action against Israel because it is fighting back against two (maybe four) people that have said unthinkably bad things about it & the Israeli people. Dems have such disdain for Israel! What happened? AOC Plus 4 is the new face of the Democrat Party!" Trump announced.
‘Part of me wanted to leave’: Lone attendee of Steve King town hall turns out to be a ‘hungover’ Democrat
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is being told to resign by members of his own party who are tired of his overt racism. While many Republicans might exhibit racist tendencies and make apologies for the president's racism, King says things out loud the GOP would just assume he keep quiet on. The true test, however, comes from King's own district and whether or not they're willing to reelect him in November.
The key revelation came at a recent townhall King held, where the only person who attended was a hungover Democrat. The Iowa Starting Line reported the pathetic event, where it seemed more members of the press were willing to show up than actual constituents.
‘I’m the one who calls the shots’: Trump rails against Fox News for giving him ‘his worst polls’
President Donald Trump explained why Fox News has drawn his ire and that they need to realize he's the one in control of them.
In a conversation on the tarmac in Morristown, New Jersey on his way back to Washington, Trump said that Fox News has not been good to him lately.
"Fox is a lot different than it used to be, I can tell you that," Trump said.
In an earlier Twitter rant, the president went off on Juan Williams for being "nasty and wrong."
