Here’s a picture of Donald Trump last night holding up a Bible.

At least, I think that’s he.

Whatever. He was certainly thinking of these words of Jesus:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,  for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,     for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Yes, I’m sure the Beatitutdes were in his mind.

Or, perhaps, he imagined himself a victorious athlete:

Either way, he looked like a fool.
