Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal laid into Donald Trump in a speech at the National Press Club. He got in this zinger:
You may have recently seen that after Trump said the Bible is his favorite book, he couldn’t name a single Bible verse or passage that meant something to him. And we all know why, because it’s all just a show, and he hasn’t ever read the Bible. But you know why he hasn’t read the Bible? Because he’s not in it.
Good one! But a reader who is also a bishop of the church writes to say, drily:
This shows the Governor’s limited knowledge, for Trump is all over the Bible in the Coverdale and King James editions. My favorite, from the Coverdale, is Psalm 47:5: “God is gone up with a merry noise, and the Lord with the sound of the trump.”
Hey-yooooo! I bet the Donald uses the Bishop’s line on the stump.
