Social media users are mocking the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as they unveiled a giant gold statue of the former president, who will be “worshipped” at the event.
A video posted by Bloomberg News’ William Turton shows, a CPAC representative wheeling out a literal gold statue of Trump through to the main hall where will deliver a speech.
Many Twitter users noted that a gold Trump statue would seem to violate biblical commandments against idolatry, and it drew comparisons to the golden calf idol destroyed by Moses in the Old Testament.
Check out some reactions below.

All the GOP republicans love the old testament but don't seem to recall this… Seems relatable doesn't it…
"And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made"

The Bible LITERALLY warns against worshipping a golden calf. And, yet, these ppl who claim to be Christians do the exact worst thing they could–the one that's spelled out CLEARLY for them not to do–bc they're cultists. Christianity is just their brand

Bringing in the golden calf for the evangelicals to worship. Do any of them realize what they're doing?

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
Exodus 32: “'When the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.' And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made."

These people (cultist) deserve to be together, deserve the majority scorn, deserve the majority mockery and deserve their parallel reality. Their Grona ve won’t be quench by anything so don’t bother trying to “reach out” to them.

These "Christians" are LITERALLY wheeling out a golden statue to worship…and they don't see that they've fallen for a false prophet.
We've already had plague & pestilence…I'm waiting for the rivers to turn to blood…
…something's gotta wake these people up.
