A CNN panelist Friday accused Christians who support Donald Trump of making a “deal with the Devil.”
On “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon,” CNN Political contributor Maria Cardona said, “Look, I was going to say thank God that the president addressed this, Don, because I know that this is what keeps every single American up at night. This is a huge problem in the country. So I’m glad the president is focusing on it. I’m being facetious.”
Lemon interrupted, saying, “Political crack to his base. Why do you say that?”
Yes. It is absolutely political crack to his base. Because, to Margaret’s point, the audience that he was speaking to today eats it up. And what is so ironic about the words that have been used today is they’re absolutely right. It is a moral compromise. I would go even further. These Christian values voters have made a deal with the devil. This is a president who during the campaign said he has never even asked God for forgiveness and didn’t even know what that little white wafer thing is and so this is also a group–and this is what I think makes him going to speak to this group, you know, kind of historic and not in a good way.
