On Thursday's Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough held a panel discussion focused on "what it would take for evangelicals to turn on President Trump." The New Yorker's Michael Luo, who wrote a piece with that title, contended that white evangelicals support President Trump because of "a fusion of cultural beliefs, religion and culture that mix together...particularly actually around the sense that America is in decline and that America was founded as a Christian nation...those kinds of cultural beliefs are actually shared with Trump." According to Luo, these "shared cultural values" include "xenophobia, nativism, the sense of protection of...a sense of what they thought that America used to be and what it should be." Left-wing Rev. William Barber joined the Trump-bashing and claimed that Trump's policies are "fundamentally against a Jesus-based morality and a constitutional morality." Karine Jean-Pierre of Moveon.org made sure to trash the President because he "took away food stamps from 700,000 people."
