President Donald Trump stopped at a church in Alabama while touring horrifying tornado destruction Friday — and signed Bibles.
The Bibles may have been the closest things on hand for Trump to sign during his visit. Volunteers had their own, and Bibles were also being distributed at the Providence Baptist Church in Opelika along with clothing and other goods, according to The Associated Press.
The community has mobilized in the wake of the EF-4 tornado that struck rural Beauregard last Sunday and killed 23. It was the deadliest tornado in the nation since 2013.
Trump perked up the church crowd, which cheered when he autographed the cover of a 12-year-old boy’s Bible. The president and Melania Trump together signed the cover of 10-year-old girl’s Bible decorated with pink camouflage. One woman at the church called Trump’s visit a “godsend,” according to pool reports.

Donald J. Trump is signing Bibles. The man whose vicious and inhumane border policy violates the fundamental teachings of Jesus is signing Bibles.— Peter Daou (@peterdaou) March 8, 2019
In Trump’s defense, he wrote as much of the Bible as “Art of The Deal” https://t.co/BsR6pTkaxK— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) March 8, 2019
When the man who embodies all 7 deadly sins—lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride—is signing Bibles it means that it is time to reevaluate your religion.— Ryan Knight ???????? (@ProudResister) March 8, 2019

Donald Trump signing bibles is like Hannibal Lecter signing cookbooks.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) March 8, 2019
He signed bibles with the same hand he used -- as President -- to sign hush money checks to an adult film star. https://t.co/ecQH8ooJaf— Ronald Klain (@RonaldKlain) March 8, 2019
I hope Trump leaves room in all the Bibles he signs for the other three horsemen.— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) March 8, 2019

Old joke, adapted:
–– What's the difference between God and Donald Trump?
–– God doesn't think he's Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/y2nZwiHeXy
