Donald Trump says Joe Biden will ‘hurt the Bible, hurt God, he’s against God’

President Trump speaks as he departs the White House

One of Donald Trump’s “hits” against Joe Biden is that Biden is senile or something. That doesn’t make much sense long-term because every time Trump opens his mouth, he makes some kind of terrible gaffe, he reminds everyone that he took a cognitive test and got “extra credit” or he mispronounces something really obvious. Like Yo-Semite. Or Thighland:

Yep. That’s actually not all Trump did yesterday. He also decided to do a little riff for all of the Evangelical voters who already support him, a degenerate and compulsive cheater who is on his third marriage. Trump said Biden, who is Catholic, has “no religion” and that Biden will “hurt the Bible, hurt God, he’s against God, he’s against guns.” When the pandering is so naked…

Biden’s response:

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday countered President Donald Trump’s baseless attack that he, a practicing Roman Catholic, would somehow “hurt God,” calling the comments “shameful.”

“Like so many people, my faith has been the bedrock foundation of my life: it’s provided me comfort in moments of loss and tragedy, it’s kept me grounded and humbled in times of triumph and joy. And in this moment of darkness for our country — of pain, of division, and of sickness for so many Americans — my faith has been a guiding light for me and a constant reminder of the fundamental dignity and humanity that God has bestowed upon all of us,” Biden said.

“For President Trump to attack my faith is shameful. It’s beneath the office he holds and it’s beneath the dignity the American people so rightly expect and deserve from their leaders.”

Yeah but Biden is forgetting that somehow those hypocritical Bible-thumpers think a racist senile jackass was sent by God and a humble man who has buried a wife and two children is somehow “hurting God.”

    So Biden is more powerful than God if he can hurt him?! No wonder Trump’s so scared of him!!!

    • Chica1971 says:

      I thought this too. I always thought God was atop all pecking orders. That’s was a bonkers speech ( whatever it’s called when his lips moves). Seems to have trouble drawing crowds with these tarmac rallies though

      • Liz version 700 says:

        “Whatever it’s called” is the truth. It isn’t a speech so much as a word vomiting Episode. I saw a Twitter thread yesterday with guesses about God’s Secret Service handle. It was funny. My favorite was “Holy Roller.”

        But seriously. He is past where my dad was in the later stages of Alzheimer’s. If you even look at his coherence at the beginning of the term to now it is a marked decline.

        The Daily Show nailed it with this clip.

        Iola: that was great, thanks for the link.

    • Ela says:

      Haha! That was my first head scratching thought. Biden can hurt God! Wow! Not a great endorsement for God.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      Best comment? On Twitter: Brian Williams’ sign off last night: Brian Williams just signed off by saying from the majesty of Yo-sem-ite to the tropics of Thigh-land, goodnight.

      LOVE. IT!

    • Moe says:

      My god (no joke intended) . The contrast in their use of language is so shocking. Just in their respective grasp of english. Biden sounds thoughtful and articulate. Trump sounds like an angry second grader. When will this american nightmare be over?

  2. STRIPE says:

    In addition to not behaving in any way Christlike, the Evangelical community has also forgotten the 1st and 2nd Commandment it seems.

    Cause, you know…the bible is Donnie’s favorite book

  4. Lightpurple says:

    Biden is the only Catholic elected as Vice President of the United States. He is a devout, practicing Catholic, who clearly takes great comfort from and attempts to live his faith. Trump is filth and this is yet another dog whistle to his KKK followers who believe Catholics must be driven out. There have been numerous vandalism attacks on Catholic Churches in the past month.

    • Esmom says:

      And yet, I fear it doesn’t matter. Biden’s heartfelt response, such a contrast to Trump’s inarticulate grasping, will be spun and mocked and swept under the rug by the right wing propaganda machine that has convinced people that Trump is their savior.

      I was feeling optimistic about the election a few weeks ago but I’m becoming convinced again that Trump will win.

    • MaryContrary says:

      And yet, friends of ours who are devout Catholics, will vote for Trump yet again because their biggest issue is anti-abortion. It boggles the mind.

      • Princess Peach says:

        I also have a lot of people in my life who have done the same.

        But look at Roberts! He was appointed by a conservative and has gradually started moving left like many many conservative justices before him. So this terrible logic is a terrible reason to support him.

      • Mel M says:

        Same here. The Catholics in my family are anti mask dump worshipers, they love him, and the catholic schools around here are doing in person learning only and masks are only recommended. They will follow him to the literal grave.

      • goofpuff says:

        Which is crazy, because they are more concerned about forcing pregnancies on unwilling women than they are about children who are already born and on this Earth. And the children dying thanks to the orange turd and widespread availability of assault weapons. But sure. We must control women’s bodies.

  5. SJR says:

    Trump: Sh*t talking about God, blah, blah, blah
    God: Get off my side, Don.

  6. Who ARE these people? says:

    Trump says Biden is against God because Trump thinks he is God.

  7. Darla says:

    It’s just so upsetting to me that he’s going to get millions of votes. Do you ever feel like this can’t be real and we must be living in a simulation?

    • Lively says:

      I’m honestly really sure that America is going to vote him in for a second term, there is massive disconnect within your country. Sad really.
      I think we’re living in the darkest timeline 😂😂

    • Esmom says:

      Yes and I just mentioned above that it’s really dawning on me that he could very well win, probably will win. His incompetence and malevolence is no match for the right wing propaganda that’s telling people none of Trump’s egregious decisions and mistakes and debacles are his fault.

      • Darla says:

        No i just cannot go there mentally.

      • Orca says:

        This is my greatest fear. I can’t go there mentally either. I have three Trumpian relatives. I have converted two of them since 2016. We all need to remind friends and family how critically important this election is. Even my mother who is a life long Republican is disgusted with Trump and promised she will vote for Joe Biden.

      • tmbg says:

        I can’t shake the feeling that he’ll be back like a bad smell. I wish I could just sleep until November when we’ll find out either way. And if he does get in again, put me back to sleep and wake me when he’s gone.

    • Dazed and Confused says:

      We are in the worst timeline.

    • Mireille says:

      Darla, never underestimate the ignorance, prejudice, pettiness, and just plain utter stupidity of the MAGA cowd. As long as there is a buffoon in office, they’ll be there waiting at the polls to vote for him.

  8. tempest prognosticator says:

    He just stands around yelling whatever nonsense pops into his Hieronymus Bosch hellscape of a brain.

    • outoftheshadows says:

      Hieronymous Bosch, I’m sorry sweetie. At least your paintings were beautiful. Trump’s head is more like a garbage barge.

  9. Levans says:

    This election will be such a mess. Trump saying that Biden will hurt god and Biden trying to divide minority communities in his recent comments about Latinos being more diverse than Black people.

    Where is Warren when you need her??

    • Esmom says:

      Honestly, it doesn’t matter. Warren — or any other candidate — would be ripped to shreds by the right.

      And Biden wasn’t “trying to divide the minority community,” please. He misspoke and clarified his remarks almost immediately. This is NO TIME for “both sides” nonsense.

      • Levans says:

        @Esmom and @Darla – I didnt say the two statements were equal. Biden absolutely is making a contrast statement about two different minority communities highlighting that one is “more diverse” than the other. It was NOT the first time he has made that comparison. If he isnt “fluent” on racial issues at this point, he needs to just keep his mouth shut.

    • Darla says:

      Biden is not trying to divide minority communities. He isn’t what I would call fluent on racial issues. I’m not sure another 70 year plus white person is the solution for that. Oh Esmom said it better than me. ^^^that

  10. lobstah says:

    Here’s the little light in this: Trump’s got nothing on Biden so far. Nada. He has zero scandals, zero dirt, and therefore he can’t fire up his base with bullshit like he did with Hillary. That energy he generated from all of the Hillary hate isn’t there with Biden, so Trump’s grasping at straws. God and guns? Cool, Donald.

    • Person3514 says:

      It doesn’t matter. His crazy followers already believe he’s a pedo with Alzheimers. Facts don’t matter to these people.

      • goofpuff says:

        That’s right. They just make up stuff if they don’t find anything. The MAGA folks are super sheep – they believe anything they say without the need for any kind of proof. They’ve trained them well not to be critical thinkers.

      • Ocean Girl says:

        And his crazy followers believe so strongly that he will win, they’re already yelling that if Biden wins, the election was “stolen.”

      I don’t think I could take another four years of Trump’s BS coupled with another four years of people complaining about him.

      Love it!!!!! That’s definitely DT!!!!! Then again, it can be applied to his whole family as well.

  12. Lively says:

    Quick question guys, hopefully when this idiot loses the election this year. If he cries foul play and refuses to leave office. What is the process to remove him?

    I think these last few years have highlighted something to me, democracy is a fragile system.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      I believe it is Federal Marshalls and/or the Military. Once Jan. 20, 2021 at 12:00:01pm rolls around, either the newly elected President (Please, PLEASE be Biden!) or failing that, if Tangerine Twitler did something to stop/screw up the election by screwing with the mail, then NANCY PELOSI becomes ACTING PRES. until a fair election is held.

      This is what’s in our constitution, although Twitler and his gang are using it for toilet paper now, but it WAS thought of by the Founding Fathers.

  13. Mumbles says:

    I wonder if the morons he’s trying to persuade realize what he just said is blasphemous. Christian theology says nobody can hurt God, which is all-powerful. That said the ability for Trumps supposed Christian supporters to rationalize his cruelty as good is astounding, so they’ll figure something out.

    • Noodle says:

      @mumbles, co-sign this. While I am not religious now, I was educated at a Christian college, and took many, many Bible classes in my time there. This idea that Biden can “hurt God” had no basis in scripture, nor is it a valid concept taught by any major Christian thinker. I’m sure there will be some pastor or group that will support Trump’s statement, but it’s 100% ridiculous from a theological perspective.

      • Lady D says:

        Religion has mastered spinning a situation to fit their doctrine. With thousands of years to practice, they will find a way to spin his words.

  14. Stacy Dresden says:

    Trump is the biggest piece of crap there ever was

  15. Chaine says:

    I am interested in how Biden is going to “hurt the Bible.” Is he going to have a gang of his septuagenarian henchmen, led by Chris Dodd, wallop a helpless Bible with baseball bats?

    • Juls says:

      Hector projector is at it again. This all goes back to him holding that Bible upside down and getting lambasted for it. So he’s saying Biden will “hurt” the Bible because that is what he himself did. But his vocabulary is so stunted that “hurt” was the best word he could muster to express himself. Moron.

  16. Leah says:

    Can’t hurt something that doesn’t exist. I’m an atheist so his comment stops at the door. He’s trying to stir up his ultra conservative religious base and to do that you use three key words, guns, abortion and god. He’s about as religious as Bezos is free about his billions. He’s about as genuine as a $3 bill.

    Besides, if they were using the Bible to judge who is the bigger sinner, Trump would win by a landslide.

  17. Ariel says:

    Remember Family Ties? The writers made the Alex P. Keaton a cartoonish GOP young person in an effort to laugh at him. Surprise, they LOVED him. He was their guy. They love the shiny image, they do not care at all what is underneath it. Maybe b/c there is a lot of evil in them.
    Weird, considering the say they are followers of Jesus, but they seem to LOVE a false idol.
    And i don’t know- is it the image, is it the hypocrisy they love-
    Or does nothing matter as long as the ideals of white supremacy are winning?

    Disclosure: my domestic partner is not religious, but he is a 64yo non high school graduate (bad home life, ran away at 17), who supports trump and only watches fox news shows and the like. We don’t discuss it. But reconciling this man, who is loving, decent, helpful to neighbors (black and white), fiercely protective of our 12 pound dogs, never been to church, as someone who thinks everything i learn on the news is a lie- and i’m “ignorant”, and STILL supports trump- is breaking my brain.

    • Christin says:

      How to reach otherwise decent people who have been brainwashed by an entertainment channel posing as “news” is a mystery of our time.

      Mango would not give the time of day to 99 percent of his followers.. unless he could grab their wallets. How people worship someone most would not want to endure as a neighbor, relative or boss in real life is beyond my comprehension.

  18. Louisa says:

    I almost wish Biden hadn’t released this statement. Trump’s comments should not be taken seriously and by releasing this, I feel it’s giving weight to the garbage Trump spouted. He should have just waited until he was asked about it, and laughed saying “ask Trump where he worships every Sunday” or something like that.

  19. yinyang says:

    This is dangerous, some dumb americans are stupid enough to fall for this.

  20. Person3514 says:

    I’m worried this pile of chewed Cheeto dung is going to win in November. His supporters are like fucking cultists. I’m in Florida and there so many stands on the roads selling Trump merchandise. I don’t understand it. I’ve never seen anything like it when it comes to politics. So many flags and bumper stickers for him. One of the gas stations by my house has a freaking carnival game set up surrounded by Trump merch and stuffed animals. I mean wth, is Trump funding this shit? I have no love left for this country. I don’t even think it’s worth saving anymore. I’m ready to sell everything and go.

  21. KellyRyan says:

    Biden relied on his faith when his wife and daughter died in a car crash. He relied on his faith when one of his son’s died of glioblastoma, (brain cancer). He sympathetically and empathetically reaches to others. When John McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma Biden called and remained in contact with Meghan McCain. Where is Trumpty Dumpty this week-end? Playing golf in Bedminster. One can only hope he is making another trip to Walter Reed.

    • Marjorie says:

      Tomorrow he’s having a fundraiser in Deal, NJ, a swanky shore town where many, many rich Syrian Jewish families from NYC have summer houses. The fundraiser is at the house of the late Stanley Chera, a retailer/real estate bazillionaire who was one of Cheeto’s few actual friends (Also the Cheras do a ton of business with the Kuschners).


      It’s minimum $5600 to get in, but it you want a photo opportunity, two tickets to the reception, and a ticket to a roundtable discussion, it’s $250K.

  22. jferber says:

    Oh, my God. Biden needs to hit back hard on this. We learned from Michael Dukakis’ defeat that libels and name calling stick, true or false, if they’re repeated enough. Crap. ALso, I see Biden released a “statement.” For literate and educated people, that’s fine. That’s not who we’re dealing with. He needs a powerful slogan (sentence) to oppose trump’s. You fight fire with fire. Do it, Joe. We need you so badly. Also, how about the Pope speaking up? It’s his duty.

  23. Juxtapoze says:

    You can’t be a true Christian and support Donald Trump. Full stop. The man’s been accused of sexual misconduct including rape 40+ times & counting. Among MANY other abusive & unacceptable acts towards fellow human beings (locking migrant children in cages, bullying everyone, fake university, stealing money from his own “charity”, cheating on all of his spouses, etc etc etc) which are all well documented. Jesus was all about love, charity, selflessness, turning the other cheek, all people being equal in the eyes of God. DJT has NONE of these qualities.

  24. Valerie says:

    If he only could, he’d make a deal with God, and get him to swap their places.

  25. Veronica says:

    His mental state is deteriorating so rapidly. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was Miller or Barr completely running the show behind the scenes at this point. They’re just waiting to cinch the power grab then knock him out.

    As for evangelicals, I’ve no doubt they’re certain God is under siege. He is, after all, very busy protecting them while sitting by idly while thousands die elsewhere. You know. That merciful hand and all.

  26. jferber says:

    His followers’ mental states have deteriorated along with their Fuhrer’s. This probably makes perfect sense to them.

  27. BRobertson says:

    I honestly do think this will hurt Trump. The conservative evangelical side of his right-wing base likely backs him on this, but there are a lot of Catholic voters (in fact, most decent people of any religion) who’ll be appalled at how he attacked Joe Biden’s faith, seeing pretty much everyone knows his faith.

  28. yinyang says:

    Seriously if Democrats are going to win this- Biden needs more exposure! Also all other presidential canditates need to back Biden, right now he has the best chance of beating Trump, the other caniddates need to back him instead of splitting the vote– or we’ll all lose to Trump!! We cant afford anymore ruin. Get america back on track. Don’t split the vote, Vote Biden!

  29. phaedra7 says:

    If anyone is against God and the Bible it’s: Take-A-💩🤬Drumpf! The way he treats this country’s people and the way he has a great deal of disrespect and hatred for people from other countries along with the way he is handling this health crisis is definitely not Christian. Also, that disrespectful freaky photo op, holding the Bible as a prop and in front of a church no less. And to conclude, his nonchalant remark regarding COVID-19 death predictions: “It is what it is”. This all shows that he does not believe in God–but he is an evil agent of the DEVIL!!

  30. Merricat says:

    Trump does not believe in any god but $. He’s trying to scare his followers, and he thinks they’re dumb enough to buy it–which, yeah, they are.
