#EndorseThis: CNN Anchor Traps Right-Wing Preacher Into Dumbest-Ever Trump Defense

Many Americans have long-suspected that the Christian Right is full of hypocrites and opportunists. Few incidents have ever provided more proof than the Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels controversy.

In today’s clip, CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin confronts Republican pastor Darrell Scott with very interesting video footage of Trump shot in 2015 at a “Family Leadership Summit” where The Donald ducks and dodges to avoid admitting he isn’t really a Christian at all.
