Much like 2008 Obama worshipers, Donald Trump’s followers have yet to hold him accountable for anything he says or does, indicative of a cult of personality.
However, even narcissistic Trump’s most ardent supporters might scratch their heads after this latest head-snapper by the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor.
Donald Trump, the only “Christian” in world history to never ask God for forgiveness, a man who invents books of the Bible like “Two Corinthians,” now claims, in a pitiful display of pandering for the Christian vote, that he reads the Bible more than anyone.
USA Today reporter Gregory Korte reported that Trump said on Tuesday:
“Nobody reads the Bible more than me.” — Donald J. Trump, just now.

As one might expect, Twitter exploded with hilarity and disbelief about Trump’s outlandish statement:

@gregorykorte Did he take 2 steps to the left so the lightning didn’t hit him from above? Good business man….bad presidential candidate.

Another tweep predicted the obvious, that Trump cult members will fall for this latest whopper from the real estate mogul:

And of course, we all know this to be true. Or, alternatively, they will call the reporter every derogatory name in the book, and not believe the quote, calling him a blankety-blank liar.
And when the video surfaces of Trump saying that he reads the Bible more than anyone, as it will, they will then shift to believing their “Dear Leader.”
Trump’s newfound deep spirituality — a complete hoax — will not cause him to lose support. Saying he’s Jesus Christ himself (don’t laugh, he just might) wouldn’t shake loose his worshipers.
It was Donald Trump, after all, who correctly predicted last month that he could “shoot somebody” in the “middle of 5th Avenue” and he “wouldn’t lose voters.”
“I have the most loyal people, did you ever see that? I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
Meanwhile, Trump is accusing Ted Cruz of lying as he’s holding up the Bible, a really strange accusation coming from someone who basically did just that.
