‘Christians have to resist being used’: New Republicans Against Trump ad takes aim at his evangelical base

Published

on

In a new ad from Republicans Against Trump, a group of Christian voters explains why they can’t support President Donald Trump because his morals and ethics simply don’t follow the values taught by Jesus Christ.

“I grew up in the church. I attended a private Christian high school,” says Tommy, a Republican voter. “You look at the way someone lives their life and you believe them.”

The ad then recalls the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape where President Donald Trump brags about being able to sexually assault women, because “when you’re a star they let you do it.”

Cheves, another Republican voter, said that in the church he was taught to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” The ad then shows the Trump supporter who chanted “white power,” which Trump then retweeted.

“When he used force to clear Lafayette Park and stand in front of St. John’s,” Pat continues.

“To bludgeon and gas peaceful protesters for a ridiculous photo-op,” cuts in Paul.

“The moment that he held up that Bible he revealed this president is using us,” Pat went on. “Christians have to resist being used to justify things that Jesus would never justify.”

With Bible quotes interspersed with Trump’s own comments of being “the chosen on,” GOP voters continue, saying that “as a Republican and as a Christian we cannot allow this man to be reelected.”

Atlanta mayor tears into ‘narcissist’ Trump for ‘blasphemous’ claim he did more for Black America than John Lewis

Published

On CNN Tuesday, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms tore into President Donald Trump for his suggestion in a new interview that he has done "more for Black Americans" than anyone else, during a discussion on the late civil rights leader John Lewis.

"What do you think about when President Trump says he personally has done more for Black Americans than anyone else?" said anchor Alisyn Camerota.

"He's delusional. He's a narcissist and he is delusional," said Bottoms. "The only person that believes that is him. He's done nothing for African-Americans in this country, and to speak that in the same sentence as speaking of John Lewis is almost blasphemous."

‘It’s worse than ever’: White House has someone new to blame for Trump’s downward spiral

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, a substantial number of Republican insiders now see no way for Donald Trump to turn around his re-election campaign before November.

With less than 100 days to go before the election and his polling numbers in free-fall, the president has been getting input from unofficial advisers like former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) who have urged him to use some of the campaign tricks that served him well in 2016 -- but others close to the president say they won't work this time.

‘Fred Trump pulls on his son from beyond the grave’: Reagan daughter explains why Trump may destroy democracy

Published

on

President Donald Trump's father set in motion the emotional pathologies that may ultimately destroy American democracy, according to Ronald Reagan's daughter.

Patti Davis said her father, like any other powerful man, remained a son who longed for his father's approval and lessons in manhood, and she describes in a new column for The Daily Beast how the presidents she's known personally were shaped by their paternal relationships.

"My father was the son of an alcoholic, whose drinking binges often left the family without money to pay bills," Davis wrote. "I have long felt that to understand Ronald Reagan, you have to understand that everything he was and did bounced off the fact that he was the child of an alcoholic. When he became a successful actor, he hired his father to answer his fan mail, wanting to give his father something to occupy himself with so that hopefully he wouldn’t drink. It worked for a while, until it didn’t."
