It isn’t enough for Franklin Graham and Eric Metaxas, two prominent figures within the American evangelical movement, to lavish praise on President Donald Trump. They have now decided they must try to demonize his critics. Literally.

I mean, it’s a very bizarre situation to be living in a country where some people seem to exist to undermine the president. It’s just a bizarre time for most Americans.”
