While most kids wanted to be a firefighter, a ballerina, a doctor, or a space cowboy when they grew up — it seems that Donald Trump just wanted to be God. And he’s done a damn good job of making that strikingly clear over the last few days.
Trump has already caused a big stink with the Jewish community after he referred to any American Jew who dared to vote against him as “disloyal.” And he ended up making that whole matter even worse when he turned around and retweeted a post from right-wing conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root that called Donald the “second coming of Christ” and the “King of Israel.”
But that was, of course, far from the end of his God complex. He later went on to personally and publicly refer to himself as the “Chosen One” when speaking with reporters about the ongoing trade war.
Then he popped a big ol’ cherry on top of all his fuckery when he took to his Twitter account peddling Bible courses in public school systems.
“Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!” Trump’s tweet read.

While he certainly caught plenty of flack over that in the Twitter comments, one person, in particular, made a Twitter post of their own to call Donald on his blatant hypocrisy.
Trump’s former pastor, David Lewicki, formerly of New York City’s Marble Collegiate Church, stated that, despite his name being on the members roll, Donnie never showed up.
“I was @realDonaldTrump‘s pastor for 5 years @MarbleChurch. I assure you, he had the “option” to come to Bible study. He never “opted” in. Nor did he ever actually enter the church doors. Not one time,” Lewicki’s tweet read.

And lo and behold, this isn’t the first time he’s been called out on his lack of knowledge when it comes to religion and scripture.
Back in 2015, Trump sat down for an interview with Bloomberg TV in which he claimed that he was against same-sex marriage “from the standpoint of the Bible.” This led the interviewer to question Donald as to what his favorite verse of scripture is — and he couldn’t even come up with one.
But really, folks, if you think about, why would he go to church or read the Bible or participate in any sort of religious tradition or ceremony? He’s not going to go worship some God when he’s completely convinced that he is God.
