This ad spears the core truth on #Trump's exploitation of Christian American voters. There is no Amazing Grace in #Trump's leadership, no matter how frequently he may borrow someone else's Bible for a tawdry photo op.
NEW AD: Six Republican voters on how @Donald J. Trump is using Christians to promote the type of hatred that Jesus would never justify. Airing on TV this week in North Carolina.
“You have tied your political career to this man...You didn’t like it...But better to win with dishonor than lose with your integrity intact. And this is what you get. You must now realize that what you have coming is defeat, but with dishonor.” https://thebulwark.com/elder-abuse-at-the-white-house/
“The president was in full Mad King mode, rambling, confused, disjointed, parading his grievances with barely a wave from afar at coherence. It was as if a hive of buzzwords exploded in his head: statues, boats, vandalism, socialism, suburbs...” https://thebulwark.com/elder-abuse-at-the-white-house/
"The heavy price we will pay for Trump’s presidency is not that we will feel bad as a people about his lack of virtue...but that his lies and abuse will leave the government itself, along with the political system and our civic culture, degraded." https://www.nationalreview.com/the-tuesday/price-trump-presidency-government-political-system-civic-...
"The rap on Trump has always been about his actual character, the sort of man he is, not merely his etiquette...But as a matter of cheap rhetoric, it is easy to shed a few crocodile tears over 'the tweets' and the vulgarity while defending the program." https://www.nationalreview.com/the-tuesday/price-trump-presidency-government-political-system-civic-...
“The ad will air on Fox News this week in NC...and will also be ‘targeted online to evangelical and Christian swing voters in the battleground states.’ Trump’s approval rating among white evangelical protestants...[has declined] 6 points [since] April.” https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/507201-gop-anti-trump-group-urges-christian-republicans-to-res...
I’m struck by the thoughtful emails and calls I’ve already received responding to this—agreeing in part, disagreeing in part, raising other points. Do write up your thoughts. Even criticism! Debate is good. It’s no time to be sleepwalking into the future. https://thebulwark.com/can-the-republican-party-be-saved/
Kevin, a pastor from AZ: "When he went across the street to have the photo op at the church carrying an upside down Bible, and proceeded to drive peaceful protesters out with tear gas and force, I knew right then that this was a man who was an absolute danger to our country."
“There has never been a more critical time for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to be aware of the multiple pathways to career success and gain the vocational training and skills they need to fill jobs in a changing economy,” said...Marie Antoinette. https://apnews.com/32959d751de0f9cc327a92ff60a49b20
Trump’s use and abuse of religion for politics. @Republican Voters Against Trump
“Trump’s commutation of Stone’s sentence brings to mind another occasion, nearly a century ago, when a Republican president commuted a convict’s sentence—not out of self-interest...but out of concern for what he thought was right for the country.” https://thebulwark.com/presidential-pardons-and-the-spirit-of-clemency/
“Trump extends clemency not when the system fails but when it works, not to right obvious wrongs but to cover them up. By commuting Stone’s sentence, the president proved once again that he is incapable of using his powers without abusing them.” https://thebulwark.com/the-tale-of-vindman-and-stone/
