The right-wing sees Trump as the Christian candidate. And 100 percent of the reason is because he hates the right people--the liberal enemy.

I remember hearing about a conservative Republican woman who was elated after Reagan beat Carter because "now we would have a Christian president."

It was easy for these people to believe that Barack Obama was a Muslim because no true Christian could be a liberal, which is what he was to them.

Hillary actually is a Christian. But to right-wingers if you have a "D" next to your name then you are faking it, by definition.
