Democratic candidate Joe Biden took a swipe at President Trump for holding up a Bible at St. John’s Church earlier this week.
Following a White House Rose Garden speech about restoring law and order, the President walked across the street to St. John’s Church where he held up a Bible.
The church suffered damage at the hands of rioters, and Trump’s journey was meant as symbolism that our nation will heal from this pain through the power of faith.
Biden, however, saw it as a chance to mock him for his efforts.
The former Vice President, who has dragged himself so far to the left to placate radicals in his party who support abortion, told Trump he might want to actually read the Bible once in a while.
“The President held up the Bible at St. John’s Church yesterday,” said Biden. “I just hope he’d open it once in a while.”
Biden also took issue with the very idea of the photo op at the church itself.
He retweeted a report from NPR Politics that decried the “photo op” which they said took place after police “used tear gas and rubber bullets on peaceful protesters to clear them away from St. John’s church.”
“He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets,” Biden wrote. “For a photo.”
There are two issues with Biden’s complaint regarding the photo op.
“The reason the crowd was disbursed with smoke canisters (not tear-gas) is that at that moment, officers were being pelted with water bottles,” one reporter relayed from Park Police.
He added, “Another factor was that protesters had climbed on top of the structure at the north end of Lafayette Square that had been burned the day before.”
Additionally, Biden appears poised to grab yet another photo op by appearing at the funeral for George Floyd, the man whose unjustified killing began the country’s descent into chaos.
It’s only bad when Trump does it.
