“I LOVE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, PRIVATE SCHOOLS, AND MANY OTHER PLACES, FOR THAT MATTER. READ IT — HOW CAN WE, AS A NATION, GO WRONG??? THIS MAY BE, IN FACT, THE FIRST MAJOR STEP IN THE REVIVAL OF RELIGION, WHICH IS DESPERATELY NEEDED, IN OUR COUNTRY. BRING BACK TTC!!! MAGA2024,” Trump wrote in the early hours of Friday.

Add in any parties or flights with Epstein

Are the Commandments on display at any of his properties? Were they on display in the Oval Office when he was in charge? Why do I even bother asking?

[–] [email protected] 77 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

Trump has very high standards, in fact they are so high they are what we call DOUBLE standards.

[–] [email protected] 25 points 3 weeks ago

He has 20 commandments he never follows, instead.

[–] [email protected] 11 points 3 weeks ago

Ahahahahaha nice

[–] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago

The rubes he's talking to with this fake tweet will accept what he's saying uncritically like always. So unfortunately you're right, there's no point in asking.

"I start kissing them. You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful ancient texts. I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the tablet. You can do anything."

[–] [email protected] 10 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

I don't know if it says more about me, or more about trump that I almost thought this was a real quote.

[–] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago

Well, it almost is...

[–] [email protected] 37 points 3 weeks ago

Same energy as him holding that Bible. The people who believe this weren't ever gonna question him anyways.

[–] [email protected] 34 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago) (5 children)

His hat reads 45-47

That's wrong. It implies he was the 46th president too.

It should read 45, ~~47~~

What a dumbass.

[–] [email protected] 29 points 3 weeks ago (3 children)

He is such a fucking narcissist, I can actually see him running with his ridiculous claim of the election being stolen, so he thinks 46 is his too. So in his mind he's 45, 46, and 47. I can honestly see him using this idiotic "logic", and his cult lapping it up.

[–] [email protected] 14 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

The other bit of irony is that being the 46th would disqualify him from being the 47th

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

wouldn't it be awesome to get a case pushed up to the supreme court or something arguing that trump is ineligible to run for president because he "won" in 2016? it would just so perfectly highlight the hypocrisy of it all

I would love for an interviewer to ask him to name, like, three of the Commandments.

Trump also worships a false idol (money), bore false witness (and keeps getting judgements), steals (doesn't pay for work), doesn't keep the sabbath, covets pretty much everything, and is too chicken shit to commit murder but has called for the death penalty on exonerated people and was recently in the news because while president he wanted his opponents executed.

It’s not just ‘accused’ anymore

[–] [email protected] 17 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

Legally, we weren’t convicting him of adultery, he’s a convicted felon for trying to hide it in order to subvert the election.

Even though the entire case is predicated on adultery, it is not a legal fact, so they’re covering themselves from a libel lawsuit.

I’m not a lawyer, however, so that’s training from my journalism degree years ago talking. Someone with better knowledge can correct me.

I respect people who have faith... but those religious idiots out there using religion as a weapon and the scum of society, and those from, the ones that think Trump is a kind of messiah, are so completely utterly brained fucked that should be legally declared incapacitated

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago (5 children)

Why should faith be respected?

[–] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

Respect as a person in spite of their faith.

Oppose to not respecting someone as a person for not respecting (the authority of) their faith.

My guess anyways...

The first 4 commandments all say "love no other god but me" and trump prolly thinks hes god, so it checks out

[–] [email protected] 10 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago) (1 children)

But he never lies, NEVER!
YOU'RE THE LIAR!!

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

No puppet, no puppet. YOU'RE THE PUPPET!

[–] [email protected] 9 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

Why wouldn't he love them? He keeps breaking them without repercussions. It's the kinds of laws Trump loves.

I've been saying this for almost a decade now, but if I wrote a book with someone like this guy as the biblical antichrist people would say it was way too on the nose.

[–] [email protected] 9 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

Trump: "I love your 10 commandments," you insolate moron. They mark you as a gullible fool that is easy to manipulate because you oversimplify from a lack of cognitive depth and believe in magic. I can say and do anything, and you'll charge into my sword because you see red and believe. At least a bull gives some fight, you on the other hand...

[–] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

just a reminder: the stormy Daniels thing was about election fraud. It's not illegal to pay someone for sex in some places, but it is illegal to defraud the voting public.

I mean, yes, sex out of wedlock is not an Old Testament sort of thing to do, and it's the right POV for this context.

Just wanting to remind everyone: he's guilty of election fraud.

(I've had someone confused thinking that was what Georgia is about, but that's election interference. I know, they all start to blur together after a while.)

[–] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago

EVERY time these people push "The 10 Commandments",

hit them with this:

[–] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago

He has just a few left to cross off.

[–] [email protected] 7 points 2 weeks ago

"Accused" adulterer? The fuck? That's a matter of public record.

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

Yet another rule he believes is for thee and not for he

[–] [email protected] 7 points 2 weeks ago

Convicted felon and sexual assailant* Trump

[–] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago

Accused? The proof of the affair was part of the evidence for his criminal trial.

[–] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

Loves it like the uneducated

[–] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

Of course he loves the Ten Commandments. He views them as a to-do list.

[–] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

The guy who literally embodies all of the Seven Deadly Sins "loves" the Ten Commandments.

[–] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

He "loves" it for all of YOU people. Rules for him? Fuck that noise.
