Splinter News covers this latest grotesquery.
“Southern Baptist megachurch pastor and Donald Trump “adviser” Robert Jeffress— the guy who delivered a prayer at the recent opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem—took to his second-favorite pulpit—Fox News—to explain how evangelicals could justify their continued support of a serially lying and adulterous president.
The short answer: Ronald Reagan cheated, too.”
I feel like most of the political stuff I’m sharing lately is just jaw droppingly stupid or uses “logic” only a far right moron will find compelling.
We can argue that this justification is a logical fallacy but the main issue is that this isn’t a moral justification at all and that people who claim to base their lives on a particular set of moral values and then use an antithetical set of values to justify their actions are morally corrupt and irrational and cannot be reasoned with.
