The Devil Can Quote Scripture – But Don Jr. Can't

Browse By

HuffPo found a tweet from the Hair Apparent trying to take a swipe at the Speaker:

As is so often the case with The Family That Can’t Shoot Straight, Junior blew it. Matthew 4:5-6:

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple,

6 saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written,

‘He will command his angels concerning you,’

and ‘On their hands they will bear you up,

so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’ ” [Ps. 91:11, 12]

Or, as Shakespeare put it:

Mark you this, Bassanio,
The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart. Merchant of Venice Act 1 Sc. 3

(Yes, it is 2 AM here. I’m up with a bit of a sore throat. 🙁 )
