Christians finally condemn Trump’s racist rally — because he said ‘Goddamn’

It was an ugly scene. Trump, standing at the podium, looks on as his pitchforked followers chant “Send her back” over and over again, referring to progressive congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who was originally born in Somalia.

Now, some Christians are finally speaking out against the ugly spectacle that took place in North Carolina last week. Oh — did you think they were finally speaking out against a mob of people gathered at a political rally chanting for a woman of color to go back to where she came from? Nah. They’re just miffed that Trump used the Lord’s name in vain, twice.

“You are going to support me because you are a rich guy, and if you don’t support me, you are going to be so Goddamn poor,” Trump quipped at one point during his speech.

It was just a step too far for West Virginia conservative Democratic senator Paul Hardesty, who is a vocal Trump supporter. As The Charlotte Observer points out, Hardesty was so offended by the slur that he fired off a letter to the White House voicing his displeasure.

After making sure to mention that he’s an unwavering Trump supporter, Hardesty wrote that he was “appalled” by the fact that Trump “chose to use the Lord’s name in vain on two separate occasions…”

“There is no place in society — anywhere, any place and at any time — where that type of language should be used or handled,” he letter stated. “Your comments were not presidential.”

Not a single mention of the ugly scene and Trump’s apparent approval.

The Friendly Atheist‘s Hemant Mehta found a few more examples of Christians taking exception to Trump’s remarks. Again, not a single mention of the mob.

Priorities, people.
