Former Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's fervent evangelical views got national attention when she launched her presidential campaign for the 2012 Republican nomination.

Her Christian counseling center offered gay conversion therapy, she fought for a constitutional ban on same sex marriage, and she often cites her faith as a touchstone informing her views.

So, many were surprised when, in a radio interview, the Evangelical Republican called President Donald Trump the godliest President of her lifetime.

Listen below:

Bachmann said:

“In my lifetime, I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump...We will, in all likelihood, never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes.”

Many consider the President a pathological liar, serial adulterer, and proud narcissist. He's bragged about committing sexual assault, vowed to bar asylum seekers from entering the country, and admitted that he doesn't ask forgiveness.

Perhaps Bachmann was exercising a Christian virtue of mercy when praising Trump, but if so, the quality of her mercy is strained, considering the legions of people like President Barack Obama, LGBT people, and others for not being Christian enough.

Many grilled the failed Presidential candidate for praise they felt was undue.

Some even speculated on Bachmann's mental health.

People were also unanimous as to which President best exemplified Christianity.

On the bright side, if Donald Trump is the most biblical President of our lifetime, at least we'll have no trouble infiltrating the pearly gates.

The President spoke at a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, but at multiple points during the speech, his words got ahead of his thoughts.

At one point, Fox News—which was covering the event—decided to cut away, amid stifled laughter from the hosts.
