Liz Cheney Suggests The Perfect Bible Verse To Trump After He Launches New Bible Grift

After Donald Trump began selling Bibles, Liz Cheney trolled him with a "Happy Holy Week" message suggesting he read Exodus 20:14.

Former Wyoming Republican Representative Liz Cheney mocked former President Donald Trump after he encouraged his supporters to buy a "God Bless the USA Bible" ahead of Easter, even claiming it's his "favorite book."

Cheney's response came after Trump urged his supporters to purchase the Bible, priced at $59.99, as a way to celebrate Holy Week leading up to Easter. Trump suggested the initiative aims to promote prayer and religious reflection, emphasizing the importance of having a Bible in every American home.

Facing financial strain due to mounting legal expenses stemming from criminal indictments and civil charges, Trump sees the Bible venture as a means to bolster his finances. A recent reprieve from a New York appeals court allowed him to delay payment of a substantial civil judgment in exchange for posting a $175 million bond.

The "God Bless the USA Bible," touted as "the only Bible endorsed by President Trump," features large print and includes additional patriotic documents such as the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. It also incorporates handwritten lyrics from country singer Lee Greenwood's renowned song.

Shortly after Trump's announcement went viral, Cheney took to X, formerly Twitter, to call out the grift with a verse of her own:

"Happy Holy Week, Donald. Instead of selling Bibles, you should probably buy one. And read it, including Exodus 20:14."

The verse in question commands, “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”

Cheney's post is especially relevant because Trump just appeared in court for a hearing related to his criminal case concerning an alleged hush money payment to adult film actor Stormy Daniels over an alleged sexual encounter that took place while Trump was married to Melania.

A judge announced on Monday that the criminal trial is set to commence on April 15, potentially concluding before the November 5 election, which virtually guarantees that Trump will be the first former U.S. president to stand trial on criminal charges.

Trump has entered a plea of not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records. These charges stem from allegations that he concealed his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen's $130,000 payment to silence Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.

Daniels claims the payment was made to suppress her account of a sexual encounter with Trump a decade earlier shortly after his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son—an encounter Trump vehemently denies.

Many appreciated Cheney's pointed response and took the opportunity to criticize Trump's grift themselves.

Trump, who has been married three times, has notably cheated on all of his wives.

His relationship with television personality Marla Maples began while he was still married to the late Ivana Trump, his first wife. He was still married to Maples, though separated, when he began his relationship with his third wife, model and future First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump's decision to cheat on Melania with Daniels—and the subsequent cover-up—ultimately led to allegations that he violated federal campaign finance laws; he was indicted last year by a Manhattan grand jury.
