Smug CNN Gang Laughs It Up Over 'Trump Bible' Before Warning It's Proof of Coming Trump Theocracy

As I reported on Tuesday, disgraced former Minnesota Democrat Sen. Al Franken — who suffers from Stage 4 Trump Deranged Syndrome — quipped during an appearance on MSNBC that if former President Donald Trump testifies in any of his court cases and puts his hand on the Bible, it will “burst into flames.”

Ironically, Trump has announced that he’s now selling… Bibles — for $59.95. 

Happy Holy Week! Let’s Make America Pray Again. As we lead into Good Friday and Easter, I encourage you to get a copy of the ‘God Bless The USA Bible.’

The Trump-endorsed Bible is bundled with America’s founding documents and a lyrics sheet for the MAGA anthem the former president uses to introduce his rallies, Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.”

Trump’s announcement comes as he continues to face substantial legal costs.

Like clockwork, CNN, the absurdly self-proclaimed “Most Trusted Name in News,” wasted zero time trashing “Bible salesman” Trump.

The sniggering began with CNN host Kasie Hunt. Mediaite’s Trump-loathing Tommy Christopher provided the transcript, which includes comments by Trump interspersed between the CNN idiocy. 


All right. Now there’s this, which is really the one that everyone at this table is talking about this morning. Former president turned Bible salesman.


All Americans need a Bible in their home and I have many. It’s my favorite book. I’m proud to endorse and encourage you to get this Bible. We must make America pray again.


Make America pray again. After launching sneaker and Cologne lines last month, the former president. Okay, so he’s selling… This is– get this– the ‘God Bless the USA Bible,’ that’s in partnership with country singer Lee Greenwood.

He takes the stage to Greenwood’s music. It’s only $59.99. And just for that, you get a copy of the Constitution, a copy of the Bill of Rights, a copy of the Pledge of Allegiance and the Declaration of Independence, as well as the Bible. I guess just a reminder, this is the man who once said [the following].


Two Corinthians 3:17. That’s the whole ballgame. Where the spirit of the Lord. Right? Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.


Jonah, can you please remind me, what is two Corinthians?

Jonah Goldberg:

Actually, my favorite example of this, when he was asked what his favorite Bible verse was, he said, well, first of all, there’s so many I couldn’t pick just one, so many. And then he settled on an eye for an eye. Which I just thought was so great.

Look, I mean, in fairness, whether you– I think a lot of people who really passionately dislike Trump are praying again too, given the state of things, but, no, this is the life we’ve–. Someone made a bad wish with a monkey paw a while ago. And this is the life we have now.

So here’s the thing. 

It’s one thing to criticize Trump for hawking Bibles — or support him for doing so. But it’s quite another thing to question or ridicule his — or anyone else’s — spiritual beliefs or lack thereof. 

Moreover, Joe Biden, who has continually referred to himself as a devout Catholic, is an avid supporter of on-demand, late-term abortion — as is Bible-thumping Nancy Pelosi. 

The next time CNN ridicules Biden’s faith will be the first.

Commentator David Frum then went full TDS clown-car crazy:

It is, it is remarkable glimpse of the path we could have been on that if if, the Electoral College had bounced slightly differently in 2016, Donald Trump would have been a TV pitchman for the past decade, and he would be selling reverse reversible mortgages, dietary supplements. 

It is, a reminder, however, of how fraudulent all the claims about his wealth are. These are not the actions of very wealthy people. Very wealthy people are living on the interest upon the interests of their municipal bonds. They do not need to go on TV and sell Bibles to, credulous supporters. By the way, the Bible, of course, is available in almost every translation you could want for free online. You can read it every day for nothing.

Finally, CNN contributor Ashley Allison took it all the way to Trump Armageddon.

This is a preview, again, of how Trump sees the way he wants to rule the world, and through an authoritative, theology, which is one way, which is, as– I’m a Christian, but, you know, the Bible is the route in which we are going to govern this country, even though this country was founded on the separation of church and state.

And so it’s funny and yet it’s not because it is a tell that if he wins in November and becomes president, he could not just say, like, I’m selling Bibles, but I’m mandating that in our schools, everyone has a Bible. And these institutions, everyone has a Bible, and that’s not what America is about.

There are people from all different faiths. And that’s the beauty of this patchwork cloth that we have that Donald Trump doesn’t really seem to appreciate in this, ever.

Where does one begin with that?

The Bottom Line

While it’s hard to think of a more polarizing politician in U.S. history than Donald Trump, this concocted notion (and faux fear) of “Trumpism” as a theocratic quasi-religion hellbent on ruling the world is laugh-out-loud nonsensical.

Unless you work for CNN, that is — The Most Trusted Name in News™.
