Trumps Bible Gaff- did anyone notice

When Donald Trump made his grand stand outside the church in Washington. The bible he held in his right hand appeared to be inverted ?
Anyone got better footage to confirm or deny !

He's a stable genius and as such perfectly capable of reading upside down. No problem.

That has been noted elsewhere.
But perhaps not as bad a gaffe as having all the demonstrators cleared away to give him the space in front of the church for his photo op.
Apparently the church officials were not advised of this stunt and are not happy at the church being used this way.

When I was younger I was led to believe that an inverted crucifix was the sign of the devil, does the same apply to an inverted bible?

Mariann Budde, the episcopal bishop of Washington, was furious.

“Let me be clear. The president just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese without permission as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything that our churches stand for,” she told CNN.

No, he held it correctly.

But only because he inspected it like he had never seen one before.

I cant imagine a pussy grabbing, race baiting, vulgar, womanizing, sexual harassing violence inciter has much need for the good book.

And Budde was also stated last time he was at the church was inauguration day.

"This is an awful man, waving a book he hasn’t read, in front of a church he doesn’t attend, invoking laws he doesn’t understand, against fellow Americans he sees as enemies." - Robert Hendrickson, rector at a Tucson Episcopal Church
