‘Trump holds a Bible like he’s never touched a book before’: Hilarious memes pour in poking fun at the president for his controversial photo op in front of St. John’s church

  • Social media users have shared hilarious memes making fun of President Trump’s photo op in front of St. John’s Church in Washington D.C. Monday night
  • The president posed with a Bible in front of the boarded up church that was damaged in a fire during George Floyd protests Sunday night

  • Savvy critics edited photos to make it appear that he’s holding a ‘dictatorships for dummies’ book and a porn magazine displaying Stormy Daniels  

Memes have poured in poking fun at President Donald Trump’s photo opportunity in front of St. John’s Church where he posed with a Bible in hand and promised America would be great again.  

After news broke that Trump hid in a bunker in the White House on Friday amid growing outrage and protest decrying the police killing of black man George Floyd in Minnesota, the president reportedly wanted to be photographed outside of the White House gates. 

On Monday evening the president walked to the nearby boarded-up St. John’s church, which caught fire in protests on Sunday evening, where he brandished a Bible and posed for photographs. 

But, social media users are ridiculing his photo op, comparing it to former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis’ botched campaign photo posing on an Army tank.

The photo was meant to beef up Dukakis military stance and toughen up his appearance in the public eye, but it backfired and instead he was ridiculed by the public for the shot.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough shared a photo of Dukakis’ failed photo op side by side with Trump holding the Bible, proving that Trump’s church photo op was just as big a blunder. 

Another Twitter user shared an image of Trump raising the Bible but the words on the book saying ‘Dictatorships for Dummies’.   

One Photoshop savvy user edited the photo to be Trump holding a magazine displaying a nude Stormy Daniels, referring to his scandal where Daniels filed a lawsuit against the president for making her sign a nondisclosure agreement following their alleged tryst.   

One Twitter user noted that the president seemed to awkwardly hold the Bible saying: 'Trump holds a Bible like he's never touched a book before'
