A video of a golden Donald Trump statue being wheeled through the convention center at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida has the internet abuzz with references to the Old Testament and idol worship.
The clip was posted to Twitter by William Turton of Bloomberg News.
The internet's response was immediate and harsh.
Twitter users are referencing Exodus 20:4, which states:
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."

In the Christian Old Testament when Moses came back down the mountain from receiving the 10 Commandments, he saw the people had begun worshiping a golden calf and was angry because they had turned away from the teachings of God.
The golden calf, and idolatry in general, are greatly frowned upon throughout the Christian Bible.
Someone out there really didn't think the golden Trump idea through before they made the statue.
And the punchline on this debacle?
The golden Trump was made in Mexico.
And that's not the last twist in this bizarre story.
Just when you thought you'd seen it all...
