State and religion have long had a close relationship in American politics and at no time has this been clearer than in this year’s presidential campaign. Ann Coulter for instance, is a right – wing author who has been drumming support for Donald Trump, claiming that he is a servant of God being used to rescue America. Recently, Coulter went by ‘’The Eric Metaxas Show’’ to laud praises on the Republican presidential prospect as he has never entertained drugs or alcohol.
As Coulter looked to emphasize the significance of Trump’s sober habits as a pointer to his personal merits, Metaxas interrupted, ‘’His vice of choice was adultery.’’ To this Coulter responded, ‘’Allegedly.’’
“You know where he met Marla Maples?” Coulter said, referring to the GOP candidate’s second wife, with whom he allegedly had an affair with prior to divorcing his first wife, Ivana. “You know where he met her? I haven’t really followed his personal story very closely but he met her in church.”
Contrary to these claims, People Magazine had put out a report that the two lovebirds had actually been introduced at a celebrity tennis tournament held in Atlantic City in 1985. As the story goes by “1987, during services at the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, Trump was secretly romancing Maples as he found ways to temporarily ditch Ivana and their kids.”
“He kept going to some, like, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, kept meeting Marla Maples there, got to know her as a friend and at some point he apparently went to the pastor and said, ‘I think I’m in trouble, I’m falling in love with this woman,’ and then he did marry her,” Coulter consolidated.
In her explanation, Coulter puts it, “we have degrees of murder, we can have degrees of adultery.” Trump, she claimed, is different from other officials who have been involved in ‘’sleazy’’ affairs. “There are degrees of murder, there are degrees of adultery,” she quipped. “It’s not his strongest point, oh well. He’s the only one who’s going to build the wall.”
