|Donald Trump bungles Bible verse giving convocation at Liberty University|
But remember y’all – Donald Trump is a BIG fan of the Bible.
Donald Trump gave the convocation at Liberty University — a Christian school in Virginia — on Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. day.
And he decided to throw in some scripture.
“Two Corinthians, right?” he announced. “Two Corinthians 3:17. That’s the whole ballgame.”
The Donald seemed to be referencing the second letter to the Corinthians, or “Second Corinthians.”
Not “Two Corinthians.” No one says “Two Corinthians.”
Clearly Trump was attempting to curry favor with the verse which reads, “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
Other GOP campaigns and the Twitterverse were thrilled to jump on the bungle:
Director of Faith Outreach for Marco Rubio:
It won’t matter. Nothing seems to matter.
