Teargas for protesters before Trump poses at church with Bible

 Teargas for protesters before Trump poses at church
Extraordinary scenes have unfolded in Washington after Donald Trump declared there would be a military crackdown on protests stemming from the George Floyd killing. Crowds were cleared from around the White House with teargas, rubber bullets and flash-grenades so that Trump could make an excursion on foot from the White House to the damaged “Church of the Presidents” and pose for photos while waving a Bible around.

The President held up a bible at St. John’s church yesterday. If he opened it instead of brandishing it, he could have learned something: 
That we are all called to love one another as we love ourselves. 
That’s hard work. But it’s the work of America. - Joe Biden

From Holy Ground to Holey Ground
Rev. Gini Gerbasi said that she, along with the church's seminarian, were forcibly removed from the patio of St. John's Episcopal Church less than an hour before President Trump arrived to take pictures while holding a Bible. 
“The patio of St. John's, Lafayette square had been HOLY GROUND today. A place of respite and laughter and water and granola bars and fruit snacks. But that man turned it into a BATTLE GROUND first, and a cheap political stunt second.”

No Hope In This Hick
According to reports from both the New York Times and the Daily Mail, Hope Hicks, who now serves as counselor to the president, was the brains behind having Donald Trump leisurely stroll from the White House over to St. John’s church for a photo-op that has turned into a public relations disaster for the administration.

  1. They're only whale sharks, they eat krill and plankton, like baleen whales. Harmless to humans, unless they land on you or something. Impressive to swim with, tho
