Larry Wilmore Rips Trump for Trying to ‘Close the Deal’ with Evangelicals: ‘Come on God, Are You out of Lightning Bolts?’

Larry Wilmore made fun of Donald Trump for his efforts to pander to Evangelicals on Monday.

Previously, Trump suggested that he had “a very great relationship with God.”

“Am I the only one seeing how transparent this is?” Wilmore said. “You’ve never read the Bible, Donald Trump. Come on, if Trump ever even touched a Bible, it sizzled.”

He lambasted Trump for mispronouncing 2 Corinthians as “Two Corinthians” and not the “Second Corinthians.

“Am I the only one seeing how transparent this is?” Wilmore said. “You’ve never read the Bible, Donald Trump. Come on, if Trump ever even touched a Bible, it sizzled.”

“Let’s say you’re a big ‘Star Wars’ fan, and someone comes to speak to your ‘Star Wars’ group,” he said. “They say they’re a huge ‘Star Wars’ fan, that they have a great relationship with ‘Star Wars.’ Then they say, ‘I want to talk about the farce — we’re all strong with the farce, right? That’s what you guys like, the farce? I know you’re laughing because you love the farce — who doesn’t love the farce? The farce is strong with Luther Vandross Skywalker, right?’”

Raw Story reports:

Wilmore despaired as Trump repeatedly promoted his book, “The Art of the Deal” — which the real estate tycoon and reality TV star placed as second only to the Bible.

“Please stop him from talking, I can’t take it anymore,” Wilmore said. “Come on God, are you out of lightning bolts?”

Wilmore then adopted the style of an evangelical minister to beg conservative Christians not to let Trump “close the deal” with them.

“You’ll be forgiven for supporting Ted Cruz or ‘black Droopy the Dog,’” he said, referring to Ben Carson. “But you’ll never be forgiven for supporting this troll.”
