Donald Trump Takes Communion?

Wonkette reported on Donald Trump trying to impress the bigots and puritans in Iowa this week with his Jeeeeeeezus sincerity.

And as the Wonkette noted in their satiric and humorously sarcastic way, it is common for the Presbyterians to serve grape juice rather than wine during communion, giving rise to some skepticism as to his level of religious participation.
Trump said that while he hasn’t asked God for forgiveness, he does participate in Holy Communion.
“When I drink my little wine — which is about the only wine I drink — and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed,” he said. “I think in terms of ‘let’s go on and let’s make it right.'”
Spoken like a truly God-fearing church-attending man of faith, one who definitely knows that Presbyterians drink grape juice, not real wine, in communion. Munching on his little cracker, aka the body of Christ, is Trump’s own special way of getting right with God, not that he needs to, because when has Trump ever done anything wrong?

I have to wonder not at a possible gaffe about wine versus grape juice, but at Trump's additional confusion over crackers and communion wafers.  I hope I might be excused for wondering if Trump was noshing on these, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers instead, reminiscent of the Christian fish symbol.
