The first video by The Lincoln Project, a new Republican organization taking aim at President Donald Trump, mocks Trump supporters for worshipping in “The MAGA Church.”
The debut video juxtaposes Trump and his evangelical supporters with actual Bible quotes. “Evangelicals, Christians of every denomination, and believers of every faith have never had a greater champion-not even close-in the White House, than you have right now,” Trump said in a clip that begins the video. As Trump’s speech plays, a quote from the King James Bible’s Matthew 7:15 is shown. “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
It also depicts evangelical and religious leaders praising Trump and offering his support, while also showing some of Trump’s least holy moments against gospel music in the background. “I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump,” former Michigan Congresswoman Michelle Bachman said in a clip is shown after a clip of Trump questioning why he would ever need to repent or ask for forgiveness.
