Donald Trump has been as quiet as a church mouse since announcing his 2024 White House bid in November. But this week, the withering one-term president got back some of his old boos, calling out his most devoted voting bloc, evangelicals, for their “great betrayal” — aka his losing streak.
“It’s a sign of loyalty. There is great loyalty in the world of politics,” he griped. Water cooler When host David Brody was asked why prominent evangelicals still don’t seem committed to Trump’s candidacy (Listen to the full clip below, via Maidus Touch).
Trump also claims that he doesn’t really care about the evangelical vote, but reminds them of those who pushed to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“No one has ever done more for the right to life than Donald Trump,” he said, referring to himself in the third person as if, God forbid, there was another “Donald Trump.”
And then he came right out and blamed evangelicals for the failure of his humiliating 2022 hand-picked candidacy. “I thought they could have fought a lot harder during the election, the ’22 election … a lot of them didn’t fight or weren’t really there to fight, and that emboldened the Democrats.”
Nothing like a guilt trip to strengthen your base.
