President Donald Trump, adulterer and incorrigible liar, is beloved amongst American evangelicals. Though they claim to neither agree with nor condone any aspect of his life style, from his self aggrandizing to his opulent wealth, they do love the way he appoints conservative justices to the courts, especially Supreme Court judges like Neil Gorsuch.
If it means advancing their political goals, many evangelicals are willing to get behind literally anybody who can win, even if that person is the absolute antithesis of the lives they aspire to. The new “spiritual biography” of Trump, which boasts of his “complex” relationship with religion, is all the more profound for his barely having attended any church services during adulthood.
Mark Hamill, the actor you may know as Luke Skywalker, pitched some other biographies hypocritical readers may find enjoyable!

But what’s actually between the covers of Trump’s new book?
You probably can’t tell from the cover, but this is actually a coloring book.
