Trump tells Prayer Breakfast “to hell with it”

Donald Trump this morning used foul language while speaking to a chaplain at the National Prayer Breakfast.

The National Prayer Breakfast, you’ll recall, is hosted by a conservative Christian organization. So it’s particularly bad that Trump would get on the dais, speak to the crowd, single out a chaplain, and then use foul language.

But Trump did.

Trump also used the normally-solemn occasion to criticize Arnold Scwarzenegger’s ratings on “The Apprentice” TV show, of which Trump is a a part owner. Trump was apparently bragging that his ratings were higher.

The thing is, everyone knows you don’t use foul language at a prayer breakfast, let alone when speaking to a chaplain in front of a crowd of religious people. Who does that? Someone who isn’t quite right, does that.

    Vulgarity in front of a vulgar “religious” occasion…

    The FAMILY organizes this event. Meh.

  • Problem with calling it a prayer breakfast is that it gives this facade of some sort of solemn occasion of devoutness, when it is anything but. It is just the annual far-right evangelical lobbyist meeting. To hell with the whole thing.
