Earlier this month, Donald Trump told a Christian TV host that “nobody has done more for Christianity or for evangelicals or for religion itself than I have.”

That’s true, said comedian Amber Ruffin. On last night’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, she offered a long list of all the things Trump did for religion. (Hey, Trump never said he did good things.)

That segment could have gone on for a long, long while and it still wouldn’t have covered all the ways the stain of Trump will impact white evangelical Christianity for decades to come.
