In a double attack targeting two of his pet peeves last night — religion and Donald Trump fans — Real Time host Bill Maher took evangelicals to task over their support for the GOP nominee.
First, Maher noted that we’ve made progress of a kind, considering that neither candidate overtly used religion as a selling point to their supporters, but it was Trump’s base that exposed themselves anyway.
“Before leaving this election behind, we must all thank Donald Trump for the one good thing he did,” Maher started out. “He exposed evangelicals, who are big Trump supporters, as the shameless hypocrites they’ve always been.”
“I don’t know if you noticed, but Republicans didn’t get to play the Jesus card this time around because it’s hard to bring up the Ten Commandments when your candidate spent his life breaking all of them.”
“He is the world’s least godly man,” Maher declared. “Jesus saw the good in whores and lepers, but if he met Donald Trump, he’d go, ‘Sorry man, but that’s a pre-existing condition.'”
But despite Trump’s rabid rhetoric, evangelicals still line up in support for him.
“Trump has nothing in common with Jesus.” Maher said. “Jesus healed the blind, Trump mocks the handicapped. Jesus turned the other cheek, Trump grabs your p*ssy. Jesus turned water into wine, Trump just whines. The Bible says, ‘Thou shalt not covet they neighbor’s wife.’ Trump says, ‘Fine, what about my daughter?’”
“In the primaries, evangelicals had a whole bouquet of religious nuts to choose from,” he continued. “Mike Huckabee; Rick Santorum; Scott Walker; Ted Cruz; Ben Carson…”
“But they went for the foul-mouthed, thrice-married p*ssy grabber.”
