Our good friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings as another post out today reminding us that Trumpism is alive and well, especially in the evangelical community. I’ve included a link at the end to continue reading. Thanks Jerry!
We’ve finally turned the corner on Donald Trump and Trumpism, some pundits now proclaim. Following Trump’s advocacy of the COVID vaccine, particularly during his interview with Candace Owens, many of Trump’s most loyal lackeys openly opposed the former president. Briefly. Crazy conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, for example, went so far as to threaten to expose many of Trump’s darkest secrets. Yes, apparently there are even more.
Trumpism Trumps Jones Et Al
The world should see those dark secrets Jones threatens to expose, but it’s unlikely the daft radio show host will follow through on his threat. Jones understands the undying loyalty of Trump’s base. He knows that pointing out the emperor’s nakedness would only ignite the ire of the Trump masses. Those loyal masses love Alex Jones, but they worship Donald Trump. Were Jones to publicly cross the Messiah, he would be excommunicated from the Trump cult—or worse.
Those analysts who happily herald the erosion of Donald Trump’s power are deluding themselves. They don’t understand the evangelical mindset.

With a few exceptions, white evangelicals have crowned Donald Trump as their savior. I mean this not as hyperbole, but in the truest sense of the word.
