He has special colors for each of the Two Corinthians


While most presidents choose to be sworn in on some fusty old historical Bible, like the Lincoln Bible (Obama) or George Washington's bible (Harding, Eisenhower, Carter, and G.W. Bush), Ronald Reagan took the oath using his family's Bible. And Donald Trump? Donald Trump will take the oath of office using the Bible he was given two days before his ninth birthday, and also the Lincoln Bible (presumably after a suitable washing). And maybe at the bottom of the stack, a copy of The Art of the Deal. We're guessing on that one. Tell us more, CBN News!

The President-elect was first given this Bible when he was eight years old, just two days shy of his ninth birthday. The date was June 12, 1955, the day he graduated Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, New York. His mother, Mary Anne, presented it to him and he’s kept it ever since. The Bible is a Revised Standard Version with his name imprinted on the front cover. The inside cover is signed by church officials with his name inscribed. Trump actually showed this exact Bible to us in one of our nine interviews with him during the course of the campaign season.

Look! I have a Bible! See? It's my very own copy! I'M YOU!

You know, the one he waved around a lot, but showed little evidence of having ever read. As you'll recall, at first he said the Bible is his favoritest book of all -- even more than Art of the Deal! -- but he couldn't name his favorite verse from the Bible, because it was too private a thing to share, and then after a while he decided his favorite Bible verse was "never bend to envy," because too many people envy him all the time, except that's not really a Bible verse at all. Then, finally, he remembered! It was Two Corinthians! Then he was on to other stuff, but he's still really big on the Bible.

You have to wonder what Bible Hillary Clinton would use. Yr Editrix is quite certain it would be Jane Addams's Settlement House Bible, because Illinois and feminism and social uplift. (Yes, Mr. D'Souza, we know, she'd have used a copy of Alinsky's Rules For Radicals. Go away.) And Rand Paul, of course, would take the oath on a copy of Atlas Shrugged.

The use of two Bibles isn't especially unprecedented, either; in 2012 for his second inauguration, Obama took the oath on the Lincoln Bible and on Martin Luther King's own bible, which was especially appropriate since the inauguration was on King's birthday, plus there's the whole personal hero thing there. In another bit of tribute to a personal hero, Mike Pence will be sworn using Ronald Reagan's Bible. Donald Trump has kind of a problem there, since we learned yesterday in his Bizarro-world interview with the Times of London and the German magazine Bild, Donald Trump Don't Need Another Hero. You really have to read the whole thing, preferably aloud, assuming there are no impressionable children or nervous cats in the room:

Heroes bad, except maybe my racist dad, and of course me. So that's why he's getting sworn in on his little-boy Bible with DONALD TRUMP embossed on the cover. Just like Art of the Deal, it's a very popular book, with his name on it, that he didn't write.

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
