How Trump Might Use Executive Orders To Modify The Holy Bible
Dana Milbank is appalled by the Republican candidate for the senate seat in Alabama. He is a Bible toting candidate who denied that he received any compensation from the Christian charity that he founded. It turns out that he is a hypocrite. He paid himself $118,000 per year while he ran the charity. Apparently, he believes that charity begins at home and that it is OK to lie about the million dollars that he paid himself. A Republican member of Congress touted himself as a Christian who opposes abortion. He was forced to resign when his hypocrisy was uncovered. He had an affair with a woman half his age and he encouraged her to get an abortion when he learned that she was pregnant with his child. Apparently, hypocrisy is an effective election tool for politicians running for election. Dana Milbank decided to make fun of Trump who is a serial hypocrite. Trump also likes to sign executive orders in front of TV camera's to impress his base with his power. Milbank describes how Trump could use executive orders to modify passages in the Holy Bible to more accurately reflect his values. He had to do a lot of research to come up with humorous examples to make his point.
