Cuomo made the remarks during his nightly hand-off with CNN host Don Lemon, who praised Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for refusing to investigate the evidence of vote fraud in Georgia presented by President Donald Trump.
“I just learned about it tonight as I was watching CNN, [Raffensperger] is a man of faith and he is relying on his faith and that’s why he could sit there and, just, very stoically say, ‘I’m sorry, Mr. President, you’re wrong,'” Lemon said.
Cuomo agreed and said he’s shocked that Trump has any Republican allies left.
“Look, Trump, I believe, will be remembered as the worst,” Cuomo began.
“We’ve never seen anybody abuse the office the way he has—not in our lifetime. But the people, those who remain—the Kevin McCarthys, the people in the House, the people in the Senate. … The man he called Lyin’ Ted, the man he called Little Marco, Mr. Bible Boy. You know, he’s got a Bible quote for every moment—he just never speaks truth to power or acts on any of it in the interest of his own state or of this country.”
Rubio fired back at Cuomo and defended his decision to share his faith.
The verses I tweet are usually the ones chosen by the Catholic Church for that days mass
But the fact he thinks words written thousands of years ago are relevant to current events proves the Bible isn’t just a book,it’s the word of God
