“CNN anchor Chris Cuomo openly mocked Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for his Christian faith, saying that ‘Mr. Bible Boy’ has a ‘Bible quote for every moment,’” according to Blaze Media.
“Cuomo made the remarks after suggesting that conservatives — including Rubio, an outspoken Christian — are enabling President Donald Trump in his insistence that he won the 2020 presidential election.
“The remarks came during the nightly handoff between Cuomo and CNN’s Don Lemon, according to Fox News.
“Leading up to the exchange in question, Lemon attempted an impersonation of President Donald Trump and mocked the president for his recently published phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger…
“Lemon then mulled over how the president could still have any government allies after the leak — a sentiment with which Cuomo apparently agreed.
“‘Look, Trump, I believe, will be remembered as the worst,’ he 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.'” [emphasis added]
