This Republican primary season doesn’t make sense for many reasons, but top amongst them is the overwhelming evangelical Christian support for Donald Trump — the playboy misogynist and racist whose show embrace of Christianity is almost too embarrassing to stomach — over Ted Cruz, whose father is a preacher and who has made evangelical politics the central cause of his career.

But a look at the political history of American evangelism tells a different story. And in a brilliant segment on her show Full Frontal, Samantha Bee shows that evangelical support for Trump only makes sense.
