"You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God..."
This pretty much covers what Trump thinks of himself, and of course his endearing followers. But is this pathetic adoration as far as it goes, or does this behavior signal the final breach with reality in the Donald Trump chump following? There were probably hundreds of hugging worshippers, and you have to wonder if these double-digits knew how absurd they looked, or has the passage from the Bible, above, become reality with Trump as the Messiah? And this includes evangelicals.
And, was the statue even displayed during Trump's speech? In the short amount of time I could stomach watching it, no. Tommy Zegan, the artist behind the gold monstrosity says he tried to present it to Trump at Mar-a-Lago with no success. Is it possible that Donald Trump is distancing himself from a likeness that looks fat and bloated and which is carrying a gold star? Zegan says he could probably get $100,000 for it. Probably tome to cut his losses and hope history is kind.
