I just watched the video of Trump hawking the bible. He looks beat. Watch as he wobbles back and forth like he can't keep his balance. The eyes insincerely glued to the teleprompter. He made mistakes reading the script so they had to cutaway to the side shot at least four times. His eyes are like slivers. Totally pathetic.

It's going to be funny when the bibbles and stocks can't cover the blue light special bond with nobody willing to cover it.

Just when you thought it was safe to read the paper...

Don't forget, other than the greenwood song, everything else in that bible scam of his is public domain, so no royalties had to paid to anyone!

Yet, somehow, Trump's creditors in judgement will discover he skimmed most of the revenue off the top, and stiffed the (possibly nonexistent) employees of "CIC Ventures."

"We’d have assumed a Trump Bible would be gilt-free. "

OK, so he was holding it right-side up.

Which I knew immediately and had to tell everybody until at last Snopes proved me right.

Apparent many alleged Xtians had never seen a bible that did not say Holy Bible on the front before.

"He was holding it right side up" isn't the flex you might think it is.

I literally have no clue what you mean by this.

“includes the words of Jesus in red.”

probably so they can avert their eyes lest any teachings of Woke-Jesus accidentally seep into their brain.

also i don't think i've thought of MC 900 Ft. Jesus in *years*. pretty sure i only ever knew of him to begin with because Meat Beat Manifesto did some remixes of "Killer Inside Me". this is the more famous-ish "If I Only Had A Brain" song : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eqtwjgvNGc

Tell me you've never read the Gospels, without telling me you've never read the Gospels. I refer to the Cleansing of the Temple (Matthew 21:12–17, Mark 11:15–19, Luke 19:45–48 and John 2:13–16).

Jesus found a mob of merchants and bankers exploiting the religious religious devotion of pilgrims for profit...and LOST. HIS. SHIT. Trashed all the stalls, *literally* flipped tables, turned a rope into A FUCKING WHIP and waled on them. It's one of the notable events recorded in all four Gospels, and the ONLY time Jesus was shown getting angry and violent. Because grifters were exploiting religious devotion for profit and He was NOT having it.

In Holy Week yet. The arrogance and hubris is staggering.

The most horrible level of hayll is now reserved for the blasphemous, sadistic, hate-crazed, heretical Evilungelical ChrISIStian trash that worship Prezinazi AntiChrist.

If there were really a God, that book would be struck by lightning, tongues of fire would shoot from his eye sockets and his face would melt like the big climax scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

If there really was a God, with a wall around Heaven and pearly gates at the entrance, I'd like to hang out at those gates to watch all the Republicans come along and discover that they aren't being judged on their accomplishments but by how they treated everyone else.

If your bible has sticky pages it is probably Song of Solomon 7

1 How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman's hands.

2 Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies.

3 Your breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.

Trump really does enshrine the values of fundamentalist Christians across the South. He's their Messiah. President Dementia and Bush the Dumber turned out to be mere prophets for the Republican Jeebus, Donald J. Trump.
