Donald Trump Claims Jesus Is the Only Person More Famous Than Him | 22 Words

Only this would come out of the mouth of Donald Trump, right?

President Trump is at it again...

And the outrageous comments are just continuing to come on through during this chaotic presidential campaign.

And during his North Carolina rally, Trump made a very bold claim about Jesus Christ...

When will he learn to read a room?

Now, we are mere weeks away from the highly anticipated presidential election...

via: Getty

And it's been an explosive journey coming up to it, to say the least!

Donald Trump is hoping to gain victory and be reelected as President of the United States...

via: Getty

But it seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.

Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year...

via: Getty

But it has been powering on ahead... despite many major setbacks.

The first presidential debate was held on September 29th at the Samson Pavilion of the Health Education Campus in Cleveland.

Entering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls. Biden's lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump's campaign, with Biden's campaign donations improving significantly.

President Trump was obviously aware of this...

And in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden's abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs. Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate!

But overall, the ninety-minute debate, that was held by Fox News' Chris Wallace, was a bitter one.

Both Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another and calling each other out.

6 subjects were set by Wallace to be discussed that evening...

The Trump and Biden records, the Supreme Court, the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy, the issue of race and violence in cities, and the integrity of the election. But despite these firm rules, the pair just seemed to focus on personal insults... and even familial issues.

The whole debate was certainly made personal...

And it didn't leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.

It all felt very disorganized...

And the people of America have never before felt so disheartened in the run-up to an election.

Trump's presidential campaign seems to be hitting rocks...

And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.

Despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...

He was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to "learn to live with COVID", which was very concerning to hear.

Well, the first and only vice presidential debate of 2020 went ahead on October 7th between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.

Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today, Ellen Page, moderated the heated debate in Utah and in similarity to the first Presidential Debate, sparks flew for miles.

Kamala Harris opened eyes with her firm techniques in handling interruptions by Pence...

via: Getty

Including her putting her hand up and firmly saying, "Mr. Vice President, I'm speaking"... engulfing Pence into silence.

Similar topics were covered...

via: Getty

Including the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump administration, racism and inequality, and the Supreme Court; all of which were discussed in a much calmer and well-rounded nature than the President and Biden.

According to the polls, Harris was the one who came out on top...

And it probably didn't help Trump's campaign any more that Pence became a laughing stock after a fly landed on his head half-way through the debate. You really can't make these things up!

Following the VP debate, Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."

But when Joe Biden proposed making the next presidential debate a virtual one in the interest of health and safety, Trump put his foot down.

FYI, this wasn't just Biden's idea.

via: Getty

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the October 15th town hall-style debate in Miami would take place virtually as health experts raised concerns about whether it would be safe to hold the event in person given Trump is still recovering from COVID-19.

The virtual debate that was scheduled to go ahead tonight on the 15th of October was officially canceled due to Trump's refusal.

via: Getty

For some reason, the proposition of a virtual debate infuriated the President and he boldly said he "wouldn't waste his time" on it.

So instead, Joe Biden is now participating in a Philadelphia town hall forum moderated by ABC's George Stephanopoulos...

via: Getty

And in typical Trump fashion, the President announced at the last minute that he will be holding his own town hall forum in Miami at exactly the same time, hosted by NBC.

Trump's event will be hosted by NBC's Savannah Guthrie...

via: Getty

And this is the first time ever that 2 hopeful presidential candidates will go head-to-head at the same time while not being at the same event.

The 2 events are currently underway...

via: Getty

But right now, all people can talk about is Trump's rally that took place earlier today in Greenville, North Carolina.

In his usual style, Trump was rambling away to his excited supporters...

via: Getty

And when he was speaking about a recent interaction he'd had by saying, "Somebody said to me the other day, 'you are the most famous person in the world by far'."

What he said next was unbelievable.

via: Getty

"I said, 'no, I'm not.' He said, 'yes, you are.' I said, 'no, I am not.' He said, 'who is more famous?' I said, 'Jesus Christ'."

The crowd broke out in applause when Trump said this...

via: Getty

I'm not having any arguments," he then said. "And let me look up and say, 'it is not even close'."

You really can't make this stuff up.
