The Lincoln Project, a group featuring prominent Republicans like George Conway and Rick Wilson, released a video blasting President Trump on Thursday. The clip is aimed at the president’s Evangelical supporters and features footage of him saying some unsavory things.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves,” opens the video, taking a verse from the Biblical book of Matthew to make the point.
The video, called “The MAGA Church,” shows Trump repeatedly asking why he needs to repent to the Christian God or explaining why that God is not involved in his decision-making processes. Along with clips of Trump cursing, the group made sure to add some of the president’s viral hits. The clip of him saying he could shoot someone in New York City and not lose voters made the cut, as did the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape.
After a soundbite of Trump declaring himself the “chosen one” plays, a graphic appears: “If this is the best American Christians can do, then God help us all.”
The video was shared far and wide, notably getting a tweet from the late Billy Graham’s granddaughter Jerushah Duford, who wrote, “Thank you @ProjectLincoln for this well done but heart breaking & scary video. Church -lets do a better job representing Jesus. Who’s in?”
Following Evangelical magazine Christianity Today’s viral editorial titled “Trump Should Be Removed From Office,” the late founder’s son tweeted in December that Graham would be “disappointed” to know about it. He said Graham even voted for Trump in 2016.
