In response to Rupar’s tweet, some Twitter users compared “The Kids Guide to President Trump” to the type of idolatry that occurs in communist dictatorships:

Huckabee has been an in-your-face promotor of the far-right White evangelical Christian nationalist movement, but Twitter user Jeff McKown noted Trump’s infamous “grab them by the pussy” comment:
