Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of Episcopal Diocese in DC is on right now and she's piiiiiised. Just said he used the bible as a means to use force on the crowd there. Also called his ass out for not even bothering to bend the knee while he was there . . .

So it seems that (beyond Trump not being able to do anything right) far from visiting a house of worship and commiserating with the congregation, Trump never bothered to ask the Bishop of the church for its use, was only their for the photo-op and didn't mingle with anyone and was trespassing:

Episcopal Bishop on President Trump: "Everything He Has Said and Done is to Inflame Violence"

"“I am outraged,” Budde said in a telephone interview a short time later, pausing between words to emphasize her anger as her voice slightly trembled. I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call, that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop,” Budde said. She noted that Trump stood in front of the church — its windows boarded up with plywood after demonstrators shattered glass there and in many other buildings on nearby streets Sunday night — holding a bible, “one that declares that God is love.

“Everything he has said and done is to inflame violence,” Budde of the president. “We need moral leadership, and he’s done everything to divide us...”

Meanwhile, Trump's Evangelical allies have a very different opinion on the photo-op, thinking it some sort of slow motion reveal of a too sexy Trump, emerging from the ocean clad only in a bikini:

Johnnie Moore, a spokesman for several of Trump’s evangelical religious advisers, tweeted favorably about the incident as well.

“I will never forget seeing @POTUS @realDonaldTrump slowly & in-total-command walk
from the @WhiteHouse across Lafayette Square to St. John’s Church defying those who aim to derail our national healing by spreading fear, hate & anarchy,” he wrote.

I don't like to comment on religious matters because everyone's faith is their own, but, for FUCK's SAKES, your adherence to Christ's teachings are questionable if you're praising a guy who just tear gassed and beat peaceful protestors on the way to (to say nothing of inciting violence the whole weekend) trespassing.

He doesn't even read a verse or make a statement. He just awkwardly manipulates a Bible in his hands. This is all so surreal.

So from a purely political point of view, Trump could have scored a huge victory this weekend.

If he had come out, on Saturday to properly address the nation, and spoke soothing words of peace, and reconciliation, and of reform, and announced a Task Force to yada yada yada, for good, he would have almost completely changed the narrative about his leadership in crisis and could have bragged about being a uniter, and not a divider...

Instead, uh, he tear-gassed some reverends and beat up some unarmed, peaceful protestors so he could take a picture in front of a church while fondling a bible. And then threaten to impose martial law and continuing to use dog-whistle language as he inflames tensions.

So if he loses, historians can point to a single point in time in which the Trump Presidency can be said to have been dealt a mortal blow from which there was no recovery, a Constantinople 1204 moment if you will. And that moment will be the weekend Trump chose to divide a nation when it was in flames over the unjust murder of an innocent man, the biggest slam dunk empathetic moment possible, and repeatedly recalled the worst, most savagely racist verbiage and imagery from the 1960s instead.

Like the Battle of Stalingradesque blunder.

Beautiful
That quote is worth its weight in gold for its strangely longing, subtly erotic undertones...

Next week, we'll find out that guy was caught in a bathroom stall with some GOP Twink (Jacob Wohl?).

A slow, in-total-command walk out of the surf...

Bunkerboy just needed that photo op today. Him standing there in front of that church awkwardly holding a Bible was just too much.



Of those that support him, I don't think that they ignore the fact Trump cannot recite. Rather, it is that many simply do not care. He is a means to an end, a means to be tolerated. We all tolerate a lot of shit we would otherwise object to it if it weren't serving us a purpose that couldn't be easily met otherwise.
