Donald Trump Botches Bible Reference At Liberty University

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:

Rapid Response Director for Ted Cruz:

And just a reminder of when Trump was asked his favorite Bible verse…



Miss Utah gets another chance to answer Miss USA question

Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, didn’t win Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant after botching her interview question, but she did create one of the most viral video momnet in years.

In the interview portion of the competition for the final five contestants, the 21-year-old awkwardly responded to judge NeNe Leakes’s question about income inequality. Her response contains the now-infamous phrase, “create education better.”

Powell, who finished the evening as third runner-up and Miss Photogenic, was given a shot at redemption on the Today show on Tuesday.

Anchor Matt Lauer asks her the question again, to which she replies: “So this is not OK. It needs to be equal pay for equal work, and it’s hard enough already to earn a living, and it shouldn’t be harder just because you’re a woman.”

Powell conceded that her nerves got the better of her on Sunday, and she answered the question without thinking.

Gotta ask though – is it weird that the winner, Miss USA, doesn’t look at Powell once she’s onset? Or is it just me?
