I would like to see a video of Donald Trump in a church house.

A real Church.

I'm sure there is one close to him.

It would be easy for him to go.

But, it is not the churches that are "essential" for Donald Trump, it is the people inside the Church.

If he could pull it off, it would be of great political benefit to him. He could show the people, his supporters in the Church, that he is "one of them".

I think it would be very interesting.

3. I saw Trump in church once

In the 1980s, my ex-wife and I attended Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan. This was the home congregation of the Rev. Norman Vincent Peale who wrote "The Power of Positive Thinking."

At one service, Trump was there with Marla Maples. I already knew Trump to be a first-class asshole from some of his antics in NYC so I pointed him out to my wife. She knew who he was, of course, and asked if he was still married to Ivana. Yeah, I said, he was.

So Trump took his adulteress girlfriend to church. Sounds about like his ethics and morals, wouldn't you say?

Sometimes, he’s intentionally offensive. It gives Cluster B-disordered people a thrill to “get away with” antisocial behavior.

His conception of worship is to be the ONE who is adored. He wants to resume his Religion Roadshow.

Trump speaking at the pulpit is the epitome of blasphemy.







Trump spoke to more than 5,000 Christians, including a large group of Latinos, at a Miami megachurch, just days after he was the subject of a scathing editorial in Christianity Today magazine that called for his removal from office. Thousands of the faithful lifted their hands and prayed over Trump as he began speaking and portrayed himself as a defender of faith.

“We’re defending religion itself. A society without religion cannot prosper. A nation without faith can not endure,” said Trump, who also tried to paint his Democratic rivals for the 2020 election as threats to religious liberty. “We can’t let one of our radical left friends come in here because everything we’ve done will be gone in short order.”

“The day I was sworn in, the federal government war’s on religion came to an abrupt end,” Trump declared. He later added: “We can smile because we’re winning by so much.”

...The El Rey Jesús church kickoff of “Evangelicals for Trump” will be followed in the weeks ahead by the launches of “Catholics for Trump” and “Jewish Voices for Trump.” It also comes days after Trump and his wife went to an evangelical Christmas Eve service in West Palm Beach rather than the liberal Episcopalian church in which they were married and often attend holiday services....

I've seen a couple pictures of him in churches, but his attention span forgot to come with him. I can't imagine why he even bothers.

Same with funerals. "Let's get this over with!" kind of demeanor.
