Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
In a nation where the majority of Evangelical and Catholic populations elected Donald J. Trump to the highest office in the land, many have been left scratching their heads. How did Jesus teachings result in a leader of the free world who has mocked the disabled, sexually assaulted women, and openly made racist and xenophobic statements?

If Jesus was President, how would his policies measure up against those of the Trump Administration? Would Christians of the Trump Era support a President Jesus or vote him out after a single term? Arguing that Jesus was highly political, Messina uses sharp wit and humor to present his positions on social policy based on the Gospels while making comparisons to President Donald Trump and the GOP who often invoke his name.

Ursuline College Professor, Gina Messina, talks with host John Shuck about her book, Jesus in the White House: Make Humanity Great Again.
