Watch: Liberty University Students Laugh at Trump Quoting From ‘Two Corinthians’
“I don’t need to be politically correct,” GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said today during his convocation at Liberty University, where he bragged of a massive crowd and attendance was mandatory for students. As it turns out, Trump didn’t need to be biblically correct, either.
He went on to attempt to quote the Christian Bible, but didn’t quite know how to attribute his chosen passage to the second epistle from which it came. (Note that Liberty University is known for being extremely religious and extremely conservative.)
“Two Corinthians, right?” he asked the crowd, perhaps seeking genuine affirmation that he was, in fact, right. “Two Corinthians, 3:17, that’s the whole ballgame! Where the spirit of the Lord — right? Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty, and here there is Liberty College — er, Liberty University!”
He continued seeking validation, asking, “Is that the one? Is that the one you like? I think that’s the one you like! I loved it!”
After incorrectly identifying the institution at which he was speaking, he summed it up thusly: “It’s so representative of what’s taking place.”
Ain’t that the gospel truth?
