MSNBC contributor Elise Jordan slammed President Donald Trump’s moral failings on Wednesday morning only to be attacked by a conservative pastor on Twitter. That proved to be a big mistake.
In the wake of Trump’s longtime “fixer” Michael Cohen pleading guilty to campaign finance crimes related to hush money Trump directed him to pay to women he had extramarital affairs with to keep them quiet, Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski asked if Trump’s supporters might finally abandon him.
“The short answer is no,” Jordan bluntly began. “It’s very baked in as of now, and is not going to change that Donald Trump is indeed a scumbag. Voters know that.”
“They do not expect him to be the kind of man who treats his wife with any decency and dignity and that is a known and isn’t necessarily going to move the most hardcore voters,” she continued, going on to note that man women who voted for Trump likely regret it now as the Republican Party as a whole crumbles under the weight of immorality and hypocrisy.
“Look at the Republican Party, big picture, just how they have lost completely any credibility as a moral force for virtue as they continue to lie and deny that what Donald Trump has done is wrong,” she concluded.
Here’s the video via YouTube.
Despite Trump’s immorality being well-documented, a Trump-loving right-wing pastor named Don Fugate of Foxworthy Baptist Church in San Jose, California attacked Jordan on Twitter for calling Trump a “scumbag.”
@Elise_Jordan How dare you call the President of the United States a scumbag. That says a lot about you. Unfortunately, objective journalism is dead in the US.

Jordan saw Fugate’s complaint and promptly responded by burning him to the ground for being a hypocrite.
Pastor, thanks for watching. I am a commentator and never claim to be objective. I grew up Southern Baptist and Good Lord I never thought I’d see the day when a Baptist preacher defended the morality of a serial adulterer. https://t.co/65lfhhHif8

Some Twitter users even helpfully listed some of Trump’s most egregious behavior for Fugate.
He called her a dog.
He called African nations shitholes
He labeled Mexicans rapists
He has called women “low IQ” and ugly
He has called a woman Pocahontas
He has attacked journalists
And he has left over 500 children alone in our country.
Scumbag? You bet.

He mocked a journalist with a physical disability. He said that black Americans have nothing to lose. He said that a judge whose parents are from Mexico could not be fair. He attacked the parents of a soldier who died in Iraq. We could go on all day.

Journalism is alive and well. Christianity? Not so much. And you’re one of the reasons.

Evangelical pastors should definitely keep their mouths shut if they are going to defend Trump’s immoral behavior. All they do is embarrass themselves and Christianity by defending him
