Joe Scarborough Confused Why Evangelicals Support Trump over DeSantis: Really Crazy

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said it was “really crazy” that Evangelicals are still supporting former President Donald Trump over Gov. Ron DeSantis or former Gov. Nikki Haley for 2024.

During Thursday’s edition of the “Morning Joe” show, Co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “Trump has escalated his rhetoric towards those involved in the case in recent weeks. While he didn’t mention anyone by name on his social media site yesterday, he did blast the quote,’ lunatics, maniacs and perverts’ that, he says, had him arrested.”

Scarborough responded, “Wait a minute, that’s interesting. What does this case involve?”

Brzezinski said, “So this case involves hush money to a porn star.”

Scarborough said, “For Evangelicals, I mean he is illegally sending hush money to Playboy bunnies and to porn stars, and he is talking about perverts. Again, I guess this is, again, projection or confession I don’t know exactly what it is.”

He continued:

“You do wonder, like, evangelicals continuing to support this guy — I know the numbers are supposedly dwindling — but when they have a choice, and its somebody like Ron DeSantis or Nikki Haley or all these other people, they continue to line up behind him is really, really crazy.”

Scarborough added:

“I come from this area. This is my community. These are some people who would not let their children listen to rock music in high school because it was Satan’s music. Now, Donald Trump has porn stars, Playboy models, ‘Oh, that’s awesome.”

“Yeah, go, Donald fight for us. Trump fight for our rights.’ They’ have twisted themselves into knots,” the host added.

“Now, I would just say, a charge that begins, maybe weaker legally, but a charge that begins with a payoff to a porn star, a payoff to a Playboy Bunny weeks before a presidential election, to keep that hidden, that is actually not the best case for evangelicals to once again have to walk through that moral minefield, to somehow justify supporting this guy and in some cases hold him up as some, like, secular idol, like it’s a cult it’s really sick,” Scarborough said.

But what Scarborough doesn’t seem to understand is that one of the most important narratives in Christianity is ‘triumph over death,’ which is told in the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his crucifixion.

Trump’s “stolen election” fits into the resurrection narrative like a glove. Also, given Trump’s 2016 victory in the face of the establishment and defiance of the polls, it sets a precedent of what the former president can achieve.

So to be confused as to why Trump still has the support of Evangelicals says more about Joe Scarborough and his lack of understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ, and also why Ron DeSantis does not hold the connection.

Jesus told his followers that in the Kingdom of God, “the last shall be first, and the first last,” a message that resonates with the underdog who has been betrayed at every turn, one of which Trump embodies.
