Like every other president. His claims are just a bit more tabloidesque

bunch of fake news taking ignorant cheap shots

"The U.S. Constitution, as written, has seven articles. But Trump’s Constitution has 12."

today calling it "12th amendment" instead of "article xii" has become popular preference but still not agreed upon

http://constitutionus.com

most articles/amendments added to constitution were passed in manner unclear in how they should be identified.. but in the cases of "Article XIII" through "ARTICLE XVI" the names were not just following the popular convention of their time.. but those names were included in official text of what was added to constitution

that's reminiscent of how Trump defenders rose to find explanation of him saying "two" corinthians instead of "second" when he's such a bible-loving godly man


"It's a very small deal, but a lot of people in different sections of the world say two, and I've had many, many people say that to me. My mother, as you know, was from Scotland, and they say two," Trump said.

note, he says people told him others say it that way & that Scottish people say it that way & his mother was from Scotland... not just simply 'that's the way my mother said it' (why would you bring up what others told you, if it actually was learned from his mother)


the easier explanation is Trump knows shit about the bible, & the constitution (can't even imagine why anyone would think he did), & law in general, & Obamacare, & the visa lottery (publicly described at least twice in entirely false way start to finish...how is that acceptable?)... & every other topic (during the campaign, he claimed he read the iran deal, yeah right)

here's another time idiot boy tried to get out of a mistake with his abortion answer (that the woman should be punished... where he took a stab at what he was supposed to believe in order to match his voters...):

------
WILLIE GEIST: What about what you told Chris Matthews a few weeks ago, which is that women who get abortions should be punished? Do you still believe that to be true?

TRUMP: No, he was asking me a theoretical, or just a question in theory, and I talked about it only from that standpoint. Of course not. And that was done, he said, you know, I guess it was theoretically, but he was asking a rhetorical question, and I gave an answer. And by the way, people thought from an academic standpoint, and, asked rhetorically, people said that answer was an unbelievable academic answer! But of course not, and I said that afterwards.
---------

yeah, so faced with that extremely complicated theoretical and rhetorical? question of 'if abortion was illegal, should the woman get punished?'... he decided to give "an unbelievable academic answer!" instead of what he actually believed... totally makes sense

i would call it "2 corinthians" naturally.. i don't claim much experience in "talking" or "listening" about name.. but that seems normal way of identifying it in text.. and how any mostly-reader would also naturally say it

i have a couple bibles with me atm.. gideons esv gives name in index as "2 Corinthians".. at page of beginning of chapter it begins in small print "the second letter of paul to the corinthians [except all caps]" and then right below it in much larger font "2 corinthians [all caps]".. then at the top of *every* following page it reads "2 corinthians [caps.. and followed by chapter #'s of page]"

second bible is kjv printed by holman bible publishers.. index says "2 Corinthians".. first page of chapter has "the second epistle of paul the apostle to the [smaller font and caps]" and below that "corinthians [larger font and caps]".. *every* page following has at the top "2 corinthians [caps.. and followed by chapter and verse #'s]"

i have had several other such bibles in past [kjv nrsv interlinear].. and [while lacking photographic memory] i think they were all very similar in frequently reinforcing "2 corinthians" on my brain.. whereas seeing "2nd corinthians" would definitely seem very odd and jarring to me

i don't care what you call it or any Europeans... Trump's weak pathetic excuse didn't come right away, just after his defenders leaped to find an explanation... just like they do on all his bullshit


Trump is like the car salesman in Dexter

"2 corinthians"
"About 6,640,000 results"

.....

"2nd corinthians"
"About 214,000 results"

.....

"second corinthians"
"About 176,000 results"

.....

so "2 corinthians" is overwhelmingly how any mostly-reader would say it [maybe it's different if you watch televangelists idk]

give it a rest on corinthians... he also claimed "two" was written out on the paper by the guy who gave him the bible passage to read

if you have multiple excuses, you are lying

no sane person thinks Trump knows anything about the bible, he cited where he went to Sunday school as 'proof' of his faith... who does that?

and i'm not suggesting the bible is important... it's his TOTAL CONSTANT BULLSHIT that's relevant here (recall he stood in front of bible country crowds holding the bible, calling it his by far his favorite book... no way in hell)

here he is skiing the moguls...

What on earth are you talking about? That Google search only tells how its written, not how it's spoken.

People write dates like September 2, 2018. They don't say "September two" do they? Or maybe you do because you're dumb.
