Perhaps you heard about Trump’s luncheon meeting with the Pope on a yacht anchored on the Potomac. The Pope’s mitre was blown into the water by a gust of wind and Trump said: “Let me get that your you, Your Eminence.” whereupon he vaulted over the edge of the boat, walk on top of the water over to the mitre, picked it up, walked back to the yacht, jumped back onto the yacht, and handed the mitre back to the Pope.

The headlines the next day: “Trump Can’t Swim”

IIRC Lyndon Johnson (born on Aug. 27 like me) was the butt of the same "POTUS can't swim" joke, without any reference to any clergy.
