President Trump is giving it up to Jesus Christ as he acknowledged that the Christian messiah is more famous than he is.
The President’s campaigning in Greenville, North Carolina, and while addressing supporters he brought up the topic of his fame and where he ranks. He claimed someone told him he’s the most famous person in the world “by far.”
Trump ever the humble servant says he insisted he’s not because that title belongs to J.C. The pandering worked, as the crowd ate up Trump’s remark and POTUS reveled in it.
His Christian anecdote is reminiscent of John Lennon saying, in 1966, the Beatles were “more popular than Jesus.” It was intended as a shot at the obsession fans and the media had with the group, but religious groups blasted him for it.
