Proving that if you're going to pander to a religious crowd by reciting Scripture it's better to have actually opened a Bible before.

Donald Trump tripped over himself on Monday as he attempted to quote from the Bible to connect with the crowd of students at one of the most prominent Christian universities in the country.

"Two Corinthians, 3:17, that's the whole ballgame," Trump said, drawing laughter from the crowd of students at Liberty University, who knew Trump was attempting to refer to "Second Corinthians."

Trump was still able to draw applause from the crowd by reading the Bible verse: "Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."

Keenly aware of his evangelical audience, Trump emphasized the need to defend Christianity, which he said is "under siege."
