Batsh!t insane upcoming movie claims Trump losing reelection will pave the way for the Anti-Christ

I WISH this were a joke. But seeing the parties involved, it's not.  I found this bit of madness via People for the American Way's Right-Wing Watch.

 From the conservative publication, The Washington Times:

 Evangelical and social conservative supporters of President Trump are producing a film warning of a “one world government” based on socialism, the rise of the anti-Christ and other end-times calamities if Mr. Trump is not reelected in November. “Trump 2024: The World After Trump” features interviews with a diverse group of Christian and conservative commentators, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the Rev. Franklin Graham, syndicated columnist Star Parker and Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow, among others. On Monday, the Christian movie company Resurrection Pictures released a trailer for the film and announced a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to distribute the movie to as many as 1,500 theaters in “key markets” nationwide. 
The nearly 2½-minute trailer highlights topics such as “Globalism,” “Border Wall,” “Abortion” and “Israel,” with sound bites from notables such as Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council; Paula White, the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative adviser; Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT for America; and televangelists and megachurch pastors. But the trailer showcases snippets of the filmmakers’ interviews with two titans of the evangelical world: Mr. Huckabee and Mr. Graham, the Christian evangelist and missionary, who says of Mr. Trump, “So he cusses when he gets mad. He says things that are brutally honest.”

This is the same Donald Trump

Who has lied over 10,000 times since in office.

Botched the response to the coronavirus pandemic, causing over 2 million Americans to be infected and over 120,00 dead - with no end in sight.

Who is NOW bragging that he demanded testing for the pandemic to be slowed down - a HUGE mistake.

Who had unarmed protesters tear-gassed just so he could pose for a bad photo op in front of a church.

Who is even now relying on white supremacist ploys to push his re-election.

I refuse to share the link to the Kickstarter page of this bullshit, but on said page are the following endorsements below. It's the same bunch of shysters and fundamentalist fanatics who have attached their leech-like tentacles to Trump because he has given them power, access, or fundraising potential. But there should be limits to blind praise and boot-licking, at least for the purpose of self-respect. Lying is one thing, but  the video above is single most brazenly delusional bullshit I have ever seen. And I've seen a lot from these characters.

What the hell is wrong with these people?
