Have you ever Krazy-glued your thumb and forefinger together accidentally? That tiny dot of glue can transform your hand into useless fingers. In an instant, it can erase the evolution of an opposable thumb, the physical tool that helped mankind to build and create.

And Trump now faces his biggest image problem to date: there is no mistaking the fact that half of his supporters fall into the "deplorables" category. The data brought out by Think Progress is proof.
And some pretty bad religious "Deplorables".

How much you wanna to bet that all these "good
Christian" perpetrators are planning to vote for Trump?
But How Many Christian Right Are TRUE "Deplorables?"
If last week's Values Voters Summit - with Trump as the featured speaker - was any indication as to how many uber-Christians are also alt-right and bigoted "Deplorables" there are a lot out there.
