By now, Trump’s wholly unconvincing visit to a black congregation in Detroit has surely passed through your newsfeed. You’ve probably seen him standing there, looking all reverent, speaking in a softer tone than usual.

I’ll tell you one thing — you’d better hope their isn’t a God or a heaven and hell or you’ll be spending eternity having pineapples shoved up your ass with Hitler.
