When Don Jr. made a comment about Satan quoting Scripture. . .

. . . To suggest that Nancy Pelosi lied when she stated that she prays for his father, I knew that he was incorrect.

My Bible-believing days are behind me, but I did remember that in one of the Gospels Satan quotes Scripture to Jesus.

Well, thanks to this article at Huff Post, my memory was jogged with a brilliant insight.

The story of Satan's temptation of Jesus is related in three of the four Gospels. But what is really interesting is that the point of the story is that Satan tries to get Jesus to use his Super-Savior powers to pump up his own (Jesus') profile.

Satan is basically telling Jesus, "Come on, Dude. If you have it, flaunt it. Enough of this humility act."

Since that perspective pretty much sums up the Trump Family Credo, then Junior being in ignorance of this particular moral lesson from the New Testament is rich in irony supplements.

The only thing that fat daddy Donnie knows about anything is - whine and lie and get the money. It seems chinless wonder child Don Jr. actually paid attention to that one lesson.

had any sense whatsoever, they would stay off Twitter altogether. Every time they appear, they are ridiculed, and made to face the truth. Jr. should be looking for a JOB, daddy will be unavailable once he is out of office. Not one of them has had a job working for anyone else, since not one of them is qualified to work for anyone but daddy.
