    Can you guess which quote branded a president as a habitual liar?

    But did he actually read it? I'm sure he has a bible also but I'm sure he has never read that either.

    I'd take that bet. There is no way Mike Pence and about 10K others haven't gifted him one.

    Hell, I own a bible. Brother in law gave it to us as a wedding present, he could have put $1000 between the pages in cash and I'd never know it but it is on my bookshelf somewhere

    If he is removed from office via constitutional means, what does he expect the military to do? If 67 senators vote him out, they will be answering to Pence, not him. Anyone trying to stop that will get a room in federal prison. I would hope the military knows this. It isnt a concern of the police and I wouldnt worry about a bunch of bikers storming the capital. They would have no clue what to do and would be shot dead before they got close.

    Every Christian owns a Bible. Trump isnt and never has been a Christian - no one ever provided any evidence Ive ever seen of him attending a church before he ran for President.
    I disagree - I dont think anyone gifted him a Bible; no one really believes hes even a Christian. His supporters know it, but they not support him in spite of that because hes doing their bidding.
    It would be the same as gifting a Bible to Satan himself.

    Our military is sworn never to obey an unconstitutional order. From all that appears, there are quite a number of senior officers who would welcome that opportunity. He may think he has the military, but he doesn't. On a national scale, what would decentralized police depts even count for, even if he were correct?

    Ivana was backed up by the friend who gave it to him and it wasn't "Mein Kampf." He denied reading it. I've never been able to find any quote where he admitted owning "Mein Kampf." He did deny having it in one interview during the campaign. The difference is that Ivana said he read it. He said he would never read speeches. The friend who gave it said that he didn't know if Trump read it or not...

    This is probably the interview you're referencing:

    “Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of Mein Kampf, and he’s a Jew.” (“I did give him a book about Hitler,” Marty Davis said. “But it was My New Order, Hitler’s speeches, not Mein Kampf. I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I’m not Jewish.”)
    Later, Trump returned to this subject. “If I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them.”
