FAIL: Donald Trump Tries to Quote The Bible; It Doesn’t Work Out Too Well

Campaigning at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, the location where Ted Cruz announced his presidential campaign, Donald Trump attempted to solidify his shaky Christian credentials by quoting the Holy Bible.

Trump, the bombastic billionaire who may be the only Christian in the history of Christianity to have never asked God for forgiveness in their entire lives, flubbed his attempt to pander to the evangelical audience.

Trump, however, caught flack on social media after he called Second Corinthians, “Two Corinthians” when he referenced the book of the Bible made of Paul’s Second Epistle to the Corinthians.

“Two Corinthians, right?” he said. “Two Corinthians 3:17. That’s the whole ballgame.”

The verse reads: “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

The slip comes after Trump called the Bible his favorite book last year, but wouldn’t share his favorite Bible verse. On Monday, he said it was the only book better than his No. 1 bestseller “The Art of the Deal.”
