The Current Situation

I’d like to propose an eleventh Commandment…

For someone who can’t quote a Bible verse off the top of his head, posing with it reverently is high hypocrisy. It’s also poor preparation, given all the pandering he does to the religious right — as the saying goes, “Even the devil can cite scripture for his own purpose.”

But to clear protestors with tear gas just to get a photo op to put your faux piety on display? And without checking with the church, bishop or priest? There’s just no bottom with Trump — he can always go lower.

For context, see this USA Today article: ‘I am outraged’: DC bishop denounces Trump’s church visit after police clear protesters with tear gas, or this New York Times article: Protesters Dispersed With Tear Gas So Trump Could Pose at Church.
