    Trump Jesus.

    Anyone gonna go out and buy themselves an antichrist Bible? Interesting to see the shoe salesman head of the Republican Party branching out to Bibles so soon after he started his shoe business. Seems like hes a bit desperate for cash despite the absurd ruling cutting his appeal bond requirement.

    I think it's hilarious. It just highlights Trump's boldness, and his marketing genius. Sure, half the country will know it's ridiculous and so completely hypocritical it's laughable but it will provide confirmation bias for the other half who will see it as Trump doing what he can to prop us up against the secularization of America. They won't care that the last time he probably stepped inside a church was at his baptism, or that, as Liz Cheney said, he has flagrantly flouted some of the Bible's basic commandments. His followers will be proud to buy a Donald Trump bible.

    Frankly the other worrisome thing this circus trick does is to further break down the separation of church and state. Linking the Bible with politics the way Trump is doing it creates a dangerous form of nationalism based on religious identity.

    But it's all part of his plan (NOT "His" plan)

    Amen.

    When the news showed a photo of him holding up the bible, I had a fleeting mental image of the antichrist. The value of his loser social media stock is also a great mystery to me.

    I swear the following story is true, I swear - I am saying this as I don't believe it myself. I received a FB message from a Trump supporting gay man with whom I went to high school who read one of my posts and fired back with - "And God said let there be light. So he created Donald Trump." Seriously. I just am blown away that this man would take his MAGA support to this insane level. Ay carumba, what is wrong with this country? And our politics? It's really insane on both sides. Rob

    I have many concerns for the future. But imposition of a theocracy is not one of them. Our country becomes less religious by the day, and no amount of Handmaid cosplay or dark forebodings about traditional Catholics will convince me there is any support for that sort of thing.

    Maybe if a Trump bible included a list of loopholes, it might be worth $59.99.
