The only people who understand how politics works are Evangelicals. They don’t vote on identity. They vote on issues. They don’t go looking for a Bible thumper who’ll be “just like” them. For them, politicians aren’t mirrors. They are instruments to get what they want.
And while identity-crazy fools keep snickering at “the dumb Evangelicals who are too stupid to notice that Trump doesn’t know Scripture,” the Evangelicals are getting a lot more from the very unreligious Trump than we ever did from our identity picks.
Not even eight years of Obama taught us anything. We are so dumb.
