The fourth mocked Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) “Beetlejuice” controversy: “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy, unless thou attendeth a musical production in Denver.”
The eighth ridiculed Trump’s bogus 2020 election fraud claims and alleged mishandling of classified documents: “Thou shalt not steal, unless thou needeth to steeleth one moreth than a certain number of popular votes or unless thou can hideth thy stollen documents at thy bathroom in thy resort.”
“Stollen” was intentionally misspelled to mock a frequent Trump typo.

On Thursday, Johnson told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that his personal worldview can be found from picking up the Bible.
