I assume evangelicals will just start swearing more...

---------------------------------------------------


A Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator who represents many evangelicals got three phone calls from constituents complaining about Trump’s profanity after a recent rally...

“The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught,” said Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat.

Here’s what he would have seen. Trump crowing, “they'll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor.”

But when it comes to “using the Lord’s name in vain,” as Hardesty put it, “the president’s evangelical base might be far less forgiving.”

They should have been less forgiving back in the 2016 election cycle.
:cool:

It is not going to stop and you are not going to care enough to stop supporting him if he doesn't, just own it and move along.
I voted for Trump despite his sins in 2016. Why? Because he was the best choice as president. I don't want a socialist country or a president pushing cultural Marxism like Obama, Hillary or Biden. And I don't want breadline Bernie either.
