Someone died and made Billy Graham’s granddaughter, Jerushah Armfield, king because she thinks it’s her job to pass judgment on others.
Armfield trashed President Trump and his supporters, saying they’re not true Christians. Keep in mind that the Bible is overflowing with verses admonishing “true Christians” to not judge others’ piety.
When asked if she believes President Trump “is a man of strong faith,” Armfield said no way.
“He has not shown that to me, absolutely not,” Armfield told CNN (video below). “We can look at his life, look at the intolerance that he’s spoken, I think that my Jesus was really somebody who fought for the outliers. And I think Trump has actually done the opposite — kind of ostracizing them.”
Jerushah then slammed today’s evangelical Christians — including millions of Trump supporters — as hypocrites.
“In the 2016 recollection, it started to represent a branch of Christians that seemed to be a little more conservative and a little bit more hypocritical, a little bit more willing to compromise on the personal morals of a candidate in lieu of what politically they could gain for their party,” she said.
Jerushah Armfield is a staunch anti-Trumper who has made headlines recently for denouncing President Trump.
She has also mocked Trump and his supporters (such as actor Scott Baio) on Twitter.

While Billy Graham’s granddaughter hates Trump, his son — evangelist Franklin Graham — has endorsed and praised the president. Graham even spoke at President Trump’s inauguration.
Earlier this month, Franklin Graham wrote on Facebook that “all Christians need to get behind” the president.
“Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has,” Graham wrote. “Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic–all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers.”
In response, Jerushah Armfield said her uncle Franklin should stick to ministering and stay out of politics. (Right back at you, sister.)
“My uncle [has] an incredible humanitarian ministry that’s been on the front lines, often before a lot of ministries have been there,” Armfield said. “I think he probably needs to stick to doing that.”
