“President Two Corinthians” aka Donald Trump commanded all the churches, mosques, synagogues, and any other form of religions’ structures to throw open their doors and let the worshipers enter. He deemed them “essential.” So which church did POTUS attend? Was it the church of the presidents, St. John’s Episcopal Church in Lafayette Square in D.C.? Nope.
Maybe the whole Trump family decided to go to church as a royal unit once again. They could hop on the Air Force I and head to London to church with Queen Elizabeth at the St. Mary Magdalene Church of England. Real kings and queens have long, as in centuries-long, enjoyed this flavor of religion.
Wait a minute. Does Trump have the power to order churches open? The POLITICO sought out Rachel Laser of Americans United for Separation of Church and Stat for an expert opinion. She said:
‘The president doesn’t have that power. The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution forbids the federal government from strongarming the states. These are reckless exaggerations that are obviously aimed at pandering to his base.’
White House Correspondent & DC Bureau Chief for @AURNonline and Political Analyst for @CNN April Ryan caught “President Two Corinthians” at his favorite church. In other words, she was chiding the man who did not know the correct pronunciation of “Second Corinthians” and read it as “Two Corinthians.” He proved that his Bible lay under several inches of dust — at least.
She tweeted that he was at the church on the green, one of his own golf courses. Ryan and Trump have a prickly relationship, but that is true of POTUS and most strong women. She tweeted that’s “President Two Corinthians didn’t go to church today – He went golfing:”
‘Even though @realDonaldTrump called for churches to be opened and deemed an “essential service” despite them being a hot spot for #coronavirus during this pandemic; President Two Corinthians didn’t go to church today – he went golfing! thedailybeast.com/trump-goes-to- #COVID19 #church’
“Boss” at Politicus Sarah Reese Jones tweeted that POTUS “lied about the number of virus cases and deaths:”

White House reporter for The Wall Street Journal Catherine Lucey tweeted that Trump was back for a “second day in a row:”
‘President Trump is back at his Virginia golf course for the second day in a row’
Twitter world went nuts as Trump golfed while literally hundreds of Americans died. Check out some of our favorite responses below:
