He thought it was Apollo Creed: TRUMP

Every President Recited The Apostles’ Creed Except Trump, And People Definitely Noticed

The only time in memory that the bloviator shut his mouth

Trump didn’t recite the profession of faith during the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush.

Trump spent much of the service scowling, with his arms crossed, not participating in the recitation of prayers or the singing of hymns.@robertjeffress and other evangelicals must have found that most refreshing. Trump’s so mature and manly, isn’t he? So respectful. https://t.co/19MQGwHTRg

People on Twitter are calling out President Donald Trump for failing to recite the Apostles’ Creed at the funeral for former President George H. W. Bush on Wednesday. 

Footage from the event shows much of the church, including the former presidents seated with Trump, standing to recite the profession of faith

Trump and first lady Melania Trump stood, but did not recite the creed, which was written in the program, nor did they sing the hymns. 

Given Trump’s widespread support among evangelical Christians, that led to plenty of criticism on social media:

And Evangelicals think God put him in office? I’m surprised he was able to cross the threshold without bursting into flames.

Hey @Franklin_Graham here’s your “evangelical president” NOT  reciting the Apostles’ Creed at the funeral of your father’s friend. Maybe he thinks it’s the name of the next movie with Stallone and Michael B. Jordan.

Keith Boykin

This is your “Christian” evangelical president.

John Ziegler

It’s SO weird that Barack Obama (the “Muslim”) knew all the words to the Apostles’ Creed, and Donald Trump (the Evangelical hero) didn’t know any of them, and didn’t even bother to read them. #GeorgeHWBushFuneral

Ruth Graham

This is a strange moment. It’s not about Trump not having memorized the creed, which is printed in the program. He’s opting not to participate in the service.

Brian Krassenstein

Are you telling me the so-called “Muslim” president knew all the words to the  Apostles’ Creed, but the ‘Christian Conservative’ President, did not?

He thought it was something about Apollo Creed and wanted nothing to do with it.
