Trump has not been truthful and forthcoming about his big taxes and finances, his big voter fraud claims, his big claims about Obama's birth and more, his big attacks to Hillary when he is the president, his big concern for health care with Medicaid cuts and tax cuts for the rich, his big perfect White House, his big ugly women remarks, his big sexual remarks while married, his big honoring of Putin and Russia, his big love of deal making jobs,jobs,jobs, (ask the Carrier workers who are cutting 600 jobs by Dec. 22), his big racist travel ban and wall, his big Russian connections of family and officials, his big faith talking and praying while bashing Democrats (some Christians) like they have no rights to be Americans, his big wealth and power is an understatement, his big arrogant bragging about his greatness and perfection, his big tweets full of lies, self pity and uneducated knowledge, and last, his big hatred of the media which is sacred to our democracy, except Fox because they ignore his blatant lies or at least downplay them as no big deal!

When did lying and bragging about power and wealth become so attractive to so many Christians? I am ashamed of how Trump has his big ego crush scientists claims of climate change and his big mouth making our once world allies talking of his ignorance.

I know nobody's perfect, and we all have sin, but I hold the presidency to some form of decency and integrity. Yet, many evangelicals and Christians are applauding Trump because of the anti-abortion issue, but really, I am not sure of what else.

I, personally, put a lot of value in honesty, and I would hope your family name should stand for truth. Sen. Orrin Hatch said the latest scandal has been overblown. Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and Judge Judy all support Donald Trump Jr. Sen. John Kennedy said no big problems now. Many Republicans just say it's not illegal to collude, but is lying to Americans perfectly fine?

Trump Jr. seems to think accepting Russian emails and meetings is honest when his stories change every day as the leaks from a newspaper forced him into releasing his emails.

Those leakers are trying to get the truth out, so I am glad they are risking a criminal crime to expose the truth about our president and his family. It's not a witch hunt to me.

As a Christian, I give value to the Ninth Commandment. Where are the Republicans who said Trump would be more presidential after taking office? I haven't noticed anything, but Trump demanding loyalty above all else.

Heaven help us all! Just hope we never are so blind that we do not know a lie when we see one. Our Constitution reads: "We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union," not "We the "Trumpers" of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union." Republicans want this to go away, but hardly possible with a lying president and family members. I will pray for truth above all else. Then our country possibly can move forward but only then!
