It's no secret that many evangelical christians support Donald Trump despite Trump's somewhat less-than Christ-like life.
As long as he continues protecting "religious freedom" and fighting against women's abortion rights, however, many see him as a heroic figure.
In fact, at an event in Miami, some Christian leaders laid their hands on Trump in such a strange way, God's own Twitter account felt it had to respond.
Yikes. Major cult energy at Trump's evangelical event in Miami. https://t.co/dH2SQGiEX6— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1578088522.0
God himself quickly gave his take on the strange event.
No. No. Negative. Untrue. False. Incorrect. In no way the case. No. https://t.co/GaQI0JVcbg— God (@God) 1578102542.0
Many people followed God's example, highlighting the hypocrisy of Trump's status as a Christian leader.

Trump has a long history of embarrassing himself when religion comes up.

People were incredibly glad God's Twitter was around to roast the President.
These laying-of-hands events inevitably create strange moments.

The things Trump has stood for during his term don't seem completely compatible with the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Perhaps it's possible Donald Trump ISN'T a religious savior? Just a thought.
"'Believe me' may be the most commonly used phrase in Donald Trump's lexicon. Whether about building a wall or protecting a Christian heritage, the refrain has been constant. And to the surprise of many, a good 80 percent of White evangelicals have believed Trump—at least enough to help propel him into the White House."
"Historian John Fea is not surprised, however—and in these pages he explains how we have arrived at this unprecedented moment in American politics. An evangelical Christian himself, Fea argues that the embrace of Donald Trump is the logical outcome of a long-standing White evangelical approach to public life defined by the politics of fear, the pursuit of worldly power, and a nostalgic longing for an American past."
