Biden Uses Christian Quote To Respond To Trump’s ‘Rot in Hell’ Comment

It’s always a curious spectacle to observe the dance between religious affiliations and American politics. Republicans, often parading their devout beliefs, are affectionately dubbed “Bible thumpers.” Ironically, Democrats, in reality, embody Christian values more authentically.

The irony thickens when President Joe Biden responds to former President Trump’s unique Christmas message on Truth Social. Trump, champion of evangelical support, sends out a yuletide greeting wishing those he deems as nation-wreckers to “rot in Hell.”

Biden, a practicing Catholic who diligently attends church services, seized the opportunity to brilliantly respond to Trump’s comments on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Employing a touch of irony, the president quotes a church expression, saying, “There’s an expression they say in church sometimes: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

Adding to the irony, Biden, poised for a presidential rematch with Trump, intensifies his criticism of the former president. At fundraisers, he skillfully brings up Trump’s comments, casting him as a purported threat to democracy.

In the GOP presidential primary, Trump not only clings to a substantial lead but does so with unwavering support from evangelicals despite his public persona waltzing in the opposite direction of traditional Christian values.

In a hypothetical head-to-head match-up, Biden trails Trump slightly, with the irony-laden polls indicating a 1.9 percent lead for the GOP candidate, championed by evangelicals voters.
