A whopping 83 percent of white evangelicals said President Trump is "intelligent."

A new Pew Research Center poll reveals that most white evangelical Christians in the U.S. believe President Donald Trump is a moral, honest and intelligent person, Friendly Atheist noted this week.

Asked how well “morally upstanding” describes the president, 61 percent of white evangelicals said the phrase characterizes Trump “very well” or “fairly well.” Among the general population? Just 32 percent say the same.

And despite the more than 16,000 lies Trump has told since taking office, 69 percent of white evangelicals said the term “honest” describes Trump “very well” or “fairly well” — compared to 36 percent of the public at large.

As for the president’s “very, very large brain,” 83 percent of white evangelicals surveyed agreed that Trump is “intelligent.”

“It’s incredible that white Christians spent decades wearing the hat of ‘family values,’” Friendly Atheist noted. “But when they finally get all the power they ever wanted, the values disappeared entirely and they fully caved in to a man who doesn’t give a damn about them, lives in opposition to their stated beliefs, and knows exactly how to wrap them around his little fingers.”

The study also found that most evangelicals are extremely gullible and are easily fooled by con-artists

Keep in mind these are the people that tell fairy tales for a living. They long ago lost the ability to determine right from wrong, or truth from a lie.

What these MORONS "say" and what they actually believe are unlikely the same. They say things to people conducting surveys because they believe it will first, help trump, second relieve their guilt over having supported the most destructive force on the world since WWII. They're very aware that by supporting this insect who hates 55% of all Americans is the most grave and immoral thing they could do to mankind, something they probably DIDN'T realize on election day 2016. They dodge accountability and confronting their own conscience. When this stack of poo in a red tie came on the scene and convinced them that their most serious problem as Americans were those short Brown people from Hispanic nations that come to this country with just the shirt on their back so they can pick THEIR Asparagus and toil in meat processing plants for a fraction of Minimum Wage, and that Democrats were going to take away their guns. Being naive in the first place made them easy targets, and being old, white and dumb did the rest. Admitting that one has literally no good judgement whatsoever is a tough pill for them to swallow so of course they're going to likely feign their support which is what people with NO CONSCIENCE do.
