I don’t for one moment believe Mr Trump believes in anything bigger than himself. And I obviously don’t mean “Armageddon” in any spiritual sense.
People are concerned about Pence, because he actually believes in Jesus’ second coming. But I think Trump is way more dangerous. It doesn’t matter if he has never cracked open a Bible… He is the Evangelicals’ Useful Idiot, because… well, he is an idiot.
It’s only Day 11 of the Impeachment Scandal, and Trump has already re-tweeted about the Evangelicals and Civil War, and insinuated the Whistleblower should be executed as a traitor.
It would not be hard for Trump to trigger Armageddon with a Tweet.
And our hope in “procedure” to prevent a Dr Strangelove situation is misplaced:
