Biden Blasts Trump’s Bible ‘Photo Op’: ‘If He Opened It, He Could’ve Learned Something’

Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered an emotional speech to the nation on Tuesday morning in which he condemned President Donald Trump’s Monday walk to a church across the street from the White House where Trump posed with a Bible.

Biden began his remarks in Philadelphia by quoting some of the last words of George Floyd — “I can’t breathe.”

Minutes later, Biden laid into Trump, saying “when peaceful protesters dispersed in order for a president, a president from the doorstep of the people’s house — the White House — using tear gas and flash grenades in order to stage a photo op. A photo op of one of the most historic churches in the country, or at least in Washington DC.”

Biden added, “the president held up the Bible at St. John’s church yesterday, I just wish he opened once in a while instead of brandishing it. If he opened it, he could’ve learned something, that we’re all called to love one another as we love ourselves. That’s really hard work, but it’s the work of America.”

The former Veep continued, “Donald Trump isn’t interested in doing that work, instead he’s preening and sweeping away all the guardrails that have long protected our democracy. Guardrails that have helped make possible this nation’s path to a more perfect union, a union that constantly requires reform and re-dedication.”

Trump’s trip to 200-year-old St. John’s church to take a photo with a Bible was preceded by the tear gassing of nearby peaceful protesters and journalists.

That short walk has been condemned by Democrats and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement, “Tear-gassing peaceful protestors without provocation just so that the President could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us.”

  1. Biden got something right. Trump found you shouldn’t go crazy with touching woman and children. So no perverts in the White House.

  2. My last paycheck was $9500 working 20 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

    This is what I do…………… Perk20.Com

  3. It’s more than time to replace THE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION CRIMINAL-IN-CHIEF trumpuke.

    The violence inciting and fomenting psychopath has utterly betrayed America.

    To him law and order means violent repression and death to all non Caucasians .

    He is an absolutely toxic, useless, and worthless insult to and offense against America.

    1. Johnny boy your rational is perplexing but expected from an idiot.

    2. Hey it is Joe’s side that is committing violence. The Dem party is bred on slavery, racism and violence.

      1. Were you born with your head up your ass or is it a life choice Mark ?

    3. And what exactly did the previous administration do other than stand down on violence towards the police. This did not just begin!

      1. They were just promoting “The Rules for Radicals” so we are where we are today.

  4. I wonder if Dear Leader still keeps “Mein Kampf” in his beside table, instead of a Bible, the way he used to. (Ref. Ivana)

    1. Scotty child, you must be confused. Trump has a Bible in his night stand while Obama has the Quran and “The Rules for Radicals” in his.

      1. Scotty child, you know that Trump has a copy of Mein Kampf, how? There have been scenarios that Obama is a Quran follower and as far as “The Rules for Radicals”, read it sometime and prove me wrong.

        1. If you ask Dear Leader, he says the book was “Mein Kampf”. Marty Davis of Paramount says that he gave him a copy of Adolf Hitler’s propaganda speeches, “My New Order”, from 1939.

          So take that as you will and take your pick. Your Dear Leader kept at least ONE of Hitler’s books at his bedside, as confirmed by his first wife’s lawyer.

    2. If you pay attention to the 1 week news, you can see who is practicing Mein Kampf. Looting, rioting and burning

  5. Important to note, Sleepy Joe said nothing, nada, zip about the violence, looting, shooting of cops and SUV runover by the so called protesters.

      1. Wrong how? Did you see the news today? 5 cops shot, one in the head and a cop rode over by an SUV.

        1. No, you’re wrong that Biden hasnt addressed it. He’s just a little less, “crush all protestors under my boot” and more “Protest, but must do so peacefully without violence”.

          I’m not disagreeing there’s violence or that police have been shot.

    1. From Newsweek:
      “Protesting such brutality is right and necessary,” the former vice president said. “It’s an utterly American response. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that gust and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.”
      Ol’ Sleepy Joe said that last Sunday.
