Election 2016 - the Kobiyashi Maru or something worse

I continue to be appalled, almost to the point of despair, by this election and the ascendancy of Trump. 

Has anyone every had a more ironically appropriate name?  He has trumped good sense, civility, democracy, Republican ideals, and Christian faith.

During WWII, the Confessing Church had to separate itself from the church that supported Hitler.  I don't equate those two characters (that's out of line), but. . . I do feel that a separation is necessary between "evangelicals" who would succumb to Trumpism and those of us who stand in amazement and horror at the devotion to Trump held by so many so-called Christians and evangelicals we thought we had something in common with.
