This is all because of those bible thumping dumbass Trump supporters. Absolute Embarrassment to this country. Everyone from that party will reap what they sow.


They talk about the bible but worship a President who has never once asked for forgiveness for his sins, a President who routinely commits adultery holds a bible upside down for a photo-op, and can't name one verse from the bible. Christianity was just a guise for white supremacy for these folks.
