Trump had protesters tear-gassed so he could use the Bible as a prop. What say you, evangelicals?

Remember these photos because they are important. They are the personification of how right-wing evangelical leaders have publicly debased themselves for Trump.

On Monday afternoon, Trump finally addressed the nation after the protests and riots which followed the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minnesota police. Did Trump console the nation? Did he offer words of comfort and leadership which are sorely needed after we've seen yet another example of black men becoming moving targets?

Of course not. This is Donald Trump. What he did was posture in the Rose Garden about "dominance" and "law and order"  and threaten to deploy troops in cities across the nation. He did this, mind you, as police fired tear gas  at unarmed protesters outside the White House.
