If we had any doubt that evangelicals who get in bed with politicians know exactly what they're doing, recent events bolster that perspective. Here's Cliff Schecter from The Takedown (subscribe here) with his thoughts.

He says evangelical leaders -- key Trump allies -- used terms like "elementary school child" and "horrified us" to describe Trump in a just-published interview. They weren't horrified enough to give up that sweet, sweet power, of course.

Now Trump trails DeSantis in an early Iowa poll--and they smell blood. You can expect Trump to take it well (not). In other words: Prepare for war.
