Trump on Jesus of Nazareth: “He Knew What He Signed Up For”

On Thursday Donald Trump issued another controversial and confusing tweet. Believing Madonna Louise Ciccone, famous for her 1984 hit “Material Girl,” to be the mother of Jesus of Nazareth, Trump tweeted “@madonna. Sorry to hear about your boy Jesus. But in all fairness, he knew what he signed up for.”

The next day, the president attempted to clarify his comments, in a brief press conference. “Even though I prefer prophets who don’t get crucified,” he began, “I pledge to donate $25,000 out of my own pocket to pay for a new gravestone for Jesus. I mean, the old one was just a rock, am I right?”
