President Trump's longtime lawyer and personal fixer, Michael Cohen, alleges in a new book that Trump privately mocked Evangelicals and called Christianity "bullshit."

In the book, "Disloyal: A Memoir," which was obtained by The Washington Post ahead of its Tuesday publication date, Cohen writes that before winning the presidency, Trump held a meeting at Trump Tower with prominent evangelical leaders, where they laid their hands on him in prayer.

Afterward, Trump allegedly said: "Can you believe that bulls-t? Can you believe people believe that bulls-t?"

"The cosmic joke was that Trump convinced a vast swathe of working-class white folks in the Midwest that he cared about their well-being," Cohen writes. "The truth was that he couldn't care less."

Cohen also depicts Trump as being crude toward women, including inadvertently commenting on Cohen's then-15-year-old daughter as she finished up a tennis lesson: "Look at that piece of a-," Trump said, according to Cohen. "I would love some of that."

He also describes a tawdry 2013 visit to a Las Vegas club, the Act, with Trump and Aras and Emin Agalarov — a Russian father-and-son oligarch duo. Cohen asserts that the group watched a debauched strip show that included one performer who simulated urinating on another performer, who pretended to drink it.

Trump's reaction to the show, Cohen writes, was "disbelief and delight."

Trump doesn't give a hoot about Christ or his teaching. He just wants Christian votes!

Ya think? 

Trump's spiritual advisor is a con woman pastor named Paula White. (She is the one in red in the picture you posted.)

She dupes people into sending her something like 200 dollars so they can receive from her a prayer cloth worth about 20 cents.

It took me to when I was about 10 before I started questioning religion.

took a few close deaths that made me start wondering if there was a god.

Then I started wondering that if there was a god, would I worship it?

After awhile I was a non believer.

Studied some oriental disciplines for a few years trying to find meaning. 

Ended up as a fighter rather than an enlightened philosopher.

It took me a cursory look through the bible.  The contradictions, death, destruction and punishments really made me see that this is not something to be worshiped.  Then I realized that many of the followers want others to fear their god and that it's "all forgiving".  Yeah, no.

Many of them do seem to believe in fairy tales. So that should come as no surprise, as they'll believe anything which suits their own narrative or emotional comfort.

Trump would have been much better off not running for office. He is totally screwed.

His crimes will be studied in political science classes for years to come.

I've heard the left make that claim for 4 years now.  But not a single one can provide irrefutable proof.  At best they've provided a link to some blogger like CNN and MSNBC.

So what's YOUR irrefutable proof.

Equally important is the article's website. The Gaily Grind is a left-wing anti-Trump publication, and its home page articles provide plenty of proof.

Cohen, wrote a book to sooth TDS suffers nerves. He needs the money to pay for past and future legal bills.

Of course TDS sufferers are willing to spend money on a book by a confirmed liar and criminal that confirms every last one of their fears about Trump.

A fool and their money, as the saying goes.

Lol Trump is such an atheist that atheists don't even want him. He is such a piece of shit that even the godless say "nah". And yet those who claim to be the most diehard adherents of Christ (a loser in Trump's book) suck the most godless cock in human history with enthusiasm

Trump's proclivity to make off-the-cuff derogatory quips is, yet again, his worst enemy when it comes to defending against allegations like these.   Here we have another allegation that, if true, would likely not surprise anyone (who is being honest).

What's perhaps worse is that many people probably would not care if true. Or if any derogatory statements are made at all. There used to be a time where such statements would land one in political hot water. Nowadays, many people seem to ignore it or give it a pass.
