    This guy is so out of touch with reality. He’s actually smiling for the photo. This is psychopath material.

      I guess they’ll all jump off a bridge or ingest Chlorox when Biden wins in a landslide and the Senate is flipped. That’s what the Nazis did when the Russians came closing in to Berlin in1945.

      Yup, that’s in the Bible. Trumpians and their Furher don’t actually READ the Bible. They just prop it up when they need to.

    Thank you to the Bishop for calling trumps blatant disrespect of religion and using it for his own gain. Trump is a disgusting vile person.

    • Thomas Rogers | June 2, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      Trump doesn’t even know what a Gideons Bible is, I’d guess.

    • Tamar Rosenberg-Walker I agree ! He is utterly disgusting 👎

    • Check out the “Be Best” First Lady. You can tell she doesn’t want to be there. She would rather get back to interviewing divorce attorneys.

      This is sacrilege. They need to cleanse the site maybe do more than that, cleanse the whole Church. An evil person with his evil his band of follows just showed their evil intentions to harm people.

      Spartens25 , she wants to be there . She belongs to the corrupt family . Best example was her infamous jacket with the inscription ” I don’t care … “. She is part of the system.

    Religion has no place in government, schools or the workplace. Religion ONLY belongs in the home and places of worship.

  10. That was literally the most AWKWARD photo op I have ever seen…

    Truly Bizzare

    And the Bible was upside down…

    What a deficient

    • Freedom Angel | June 3, 2020 at 5:52 AM | Reply

      its truly bizzare one knows that he just was in the Rose Garden talking about RELIGIOUS FREEDOM_Bizarre?

    • @Freedom Angel Freedom to shoot priests with rubber bullets and tear gas for a photo op.

    • @Silver Trucker lol oh no a bias leftist is outraged that trump paid his respects to a place of worship attacked by arsonists… just sad that so called religious leaders would politicize this..

    • @Evan sorry for your delusions

    • @Joyce Pino
      These doesn’t have anything to do with democracy or republican. The only way you can understand I guess is if someone choked your child, doesn’t matter the age bc your child is always your child by putting their Knee with all their weight on their neck while being recorded for the whole world to see. Yes you would understand then!

    I grew up a minister’s daughter and I find this man completely detached from reality. He is not a Godly man, his actions and words do not represent a man of God, his smirk and actions dispersing a peaceful protest, using our own military against us on American soil, so that he could do the photo op were un-American and immoral. If you follow this man and believe him, then you better do some serious self reflection and soul searching, because you have an issue in you that you need to come to grips with. I will not be silenced. All people should be treated equally and humanely. Also, I will not sit by and let this man become dictator and destroy this country that my family who were and are military, and all military fought for. I will not die knowing that my grown children, grandchildren, and future generations have to live in what is becoming a third world nation. A revolution has begun and it is time to be American and demand change for all and for new government.

    • @Evan Just turn on your tv and observe.

    • @Love Love please keep in mind that I’m speaking of his specific protest and I’m not defending the actions of anyone who causes damage to property. these are humans.Would you like your closest family being strafed with ammunition and tear gas for doing nothing wrong except for using their first amendment right to peacefully protest.

      Please provide citations and not a snarky remark

    • @Evan around 1 hour in it shows what the media is lieing about. This guy covers alot.
      I am for peaceful protesters but there is more to this whole thing .

    • @Love Love I meant a credible one, anyone can fake a book and put it on YouTube. Until I can see further evidence this would remain a conspiracy theory. If you can give me a credible source you might change my mind.

  13. Trump, the world is laughing at YOU, not with you. One term is plenty.

    Trump’s actions are not Christian! Trump is not trying to help the situation.

  15. To see our “president” use a church like this is revolting and I’m a atheist!

      So is Trump but don’t tell his base! There is only one God in Trump’s mind and it is he!

    • Shavauna Ronan | June 4, 2020 at 8:28 PM | Reply

      I’m also an atheist but respect the different religions and their beliefs. I couldn’t believe Trump’s vile disrespect of the Bible and what it stands for. . This is reprehensible.

    As a devout atheist, it’s refreshing to hear a religious leader say that truth to the POS in the White house.

    The “Christian” who doesn’t go to church
    The “Christian” who poses with an upside down Bible but can’t say if he likes the Old or New Testament better because he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.  He was ask to recite John 3:16. He did’nt know it. ***And yet the Bible is his second favor book. ****

    • Laurence Hirst | June 4, 2020 at 6:48 PM | Reply

      You miss the point of why he did this!..His ‘base’, and the so called ‘evangelicals’ have been showing signs of wavering!..This was done so his ‘base’ could see coloured people and the ‘fake media’ being physically attacked and gassed, to demonstrate his power!..In fact the whole world saw it!..Trumps ‘base’ love seeing this sort of thing..Putting ‘people of colour’ and the ‘fake news’ back in their place! However, Trump with a Bible in his hands, is like seeing Herman Goering praying in a Synogogue!..PS..He really does have little hands!

      Are you a Christian?

    • Laurence Hirst | June 4, 2020 at 7:16 PM | Reply

      @Fran Gustavo Trying to define a Christian in America is difficult!..There are fakes, frauds and total phoneys everywhere!..All proclaiming to be “America’s truly holy and righteous!”..And they are anything but that!..If Jesus came back today, and preached the Beautitudes, (Sermon on the mount) at them, they’d have him nailed back up on the cross so fast his feet would’nt touch the ground!..Greed, avarice, corruption and racism controls much of the so called ‘white evangelical’ movement in America rightr now!..How could any real Christian praise someone like Donald Trump?..The antithesis of what Christ taught!..But praise him they do! Think about it!

      @Laurence Hirst also Do not criticize one another, my friends. If you criticize or judge another Christian, you criticize and judge the Law. If you judge the Law, then you are no longer one who obeys the Law, but one who judges it. 12 God is the only lawgiver and judge. He alone can save and destroy. Who do you think you are, to judge someone else?

  20. Seems like people really don’t like this Donald dude.
