Oh want a tangled web he weaved...
Trump appears to be losing one group of supporters after another...
Evangelicals chafe at Trump's blasphemy
" A Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator who represents many evangelicals got three phone calls from constituents complaining about Trump's profanity after a recent rally.
The residents of Hardesty's district - he's a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator - were calling to complain that Trump was "using the Lords name in vain," as Hardesty recounted.
"The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught," said Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat.
Here's what he would have seen. Trump crowing, "they'll be hit so goddamn hard," while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: "If you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor."
To most of America, the comments went unnoticed. Instead, the nation was gripped after the rally by the moment when a "send her back" chant broke out as Trump went after Somali-born Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, an American citizen. But some Trump supporters were more fixated on the casual use of the word "goddamn" an off-limits term for many Christians - not to mention the numerous other profanities laced throughout the rest of the speech.
The issue has recently hit a nerve among those who have become some of the president's most reliable supporters: white evangelicals - who comprise much of Hardesty's district. The group was key to Trumps 2016 win, helping bolster his standing in critical swing states, and Trump likely needs to maintain that support if he wants to win a second term. "
