For Donald Trump so love the world, that he sent he only begotten self, and whosoever shall believe his bullshit, shall forever regret their decision to support the narcissist.
Donald Trump and the Bible, now there’s something you’ve never heard of before. Apparently, The Donald loves the Bible, he thinks it’s great, he has a great relationship with the Bible, the Bible loves him.
“There’s so many things that you can learn from it (The Bible). Proverbs, the chapter ‘never bend to envy.’ I’ve had that thing all of my life where people are bending to envy.”

Trump apparently also thinks of the Bible as more of a movie, because of course he does. He said:
“I don’t like to use this analogy, but like a great movie, a great, incredible movie. You’ll see it once it will be good. You’ll see it again. You can see it 20 times and every time you’ll appreciate it more. The Bible is the most special thing.”
You see, Trump knows what will appeal to Republicans, and conservatives being mainly Christians, he’s capitalizing off his supposed “love” of the Bible to help gain and keep support. He’s a businessman. He knows exactly what he’s doing.
One slight problem with the verse he mentioned though — it can’t actually seem to be found in the Bible. But Trump’s campaign insists it’s the verse Proverbs 24: 1-2, which does, of course, mention not being envious to evil men, or desire to be with them. However, it never quite mentions “bending to envy.” He clearly doesn’t have the verse memorized. You know, his “favorite verse.” You’d think if it was his “favorite” he’d actually know it.
And one can only assume he adores this idea because people, according to him, are always envious of him. A kind of “don’t hate me because I’m wonderful” passive aggressive jab for all those who didn’t quite catch that. So, of course that would be his favorite part of the Bible.
Ever the narcissist, Trump has now added the Bible to his toolkit of self-promotion.
