A woman named Barbara read an email — on national television — which she sent to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg asking him not to "persecute" former President Donald Trump for his ongoing hush money payments case, Mediaite reports.

Journalist Aaron Rupar shared a clip of the MAGA woman's interview with right-wing Real America's Voice hosts Ed Henry and Karyn Turk, writing, "holy sh*t lol. it's a cult."

In the video, she read her email to aloud, saying, "Dear Mr. Bragg, I hope you had a restful weekend and had some time to be on your knees praying to our God Almighty about your decision regarding our precious, precious President, Donald J. Trump. How would you like to be in his shoes? His torture brings to mind what Jesus Christ went through to save us. President Trump is our savior in this country. There is no one else who can make us whole and great again. Please do not continue to tarnish and persecute this precious, precious man. He is only a man. He is only human. And we are all human. Have forgiveness in your heart for all the damage that everyone has done to him. And please do not continue. Thank you."

Other Twitter users reacted to the woman's comparison between the former president and Jesus Christ.

@EastUtopiaCo: "The performative crazy is all part of the ritual. Choosing the most corrupt American as their savior is central to the point."

@SundownRising: "There's a reason you deify a racist, misogynist, narcissistic criminal... & it ain't because he's Christ-like."

Bob Geiger: "Cult member: 'President Trump is our Savior' Said Jesus Christ: 'WTF?'"

Jackson Boaz: "'His torture brings to mind what Jesus Christ went through to save us' Ah yes. I totally forgot the part in the book of Mark where Jesus has his lawyer pay off a porn star."

@preston_shipp: "I hope the publication of this video will jar a few folks awake who, up to this point, have had their moral imaginations taken hostage by a lying, serial sexual predator, white supremacist, narcissistic, sociopathic con man. It's not too late to 'go home and rethink your life.'"

Leo Carney: "People really believe that Trump is the second coming of Jesus Christ. Religious Nationalism is serious threat to public policy in my opinion."
