Chris Cuomo, the host of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, recently mocked Sen. Marco Rubio’s faith, calling him “Mr. Bible Boy” in what many are considering anti-Christian remarks. He also said, “he’s got a Bible quote for every moment, he just never speaks truth to power or acts on any of it.”

The comments were made with fellow CNN host Don Lemon after Lemon tried to impersonate President Donald Trump following a recently released recording of a phone call he had with George Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

On the recording, Trump appeared to urge Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to reverse the outcome of the state’s election results.
Lemon called Raffensperger a “man of faith” for holding his own during his call with Trump. This is when Cuomo began to make fun of Rubio.

“Look, Trump, I believe, will be remembered as the worst,” said Cuomo. “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,” the anchor added. “He just never speaks truth to power or acts on any of it in the interest of his own state or of his country.”

Cuomo fired back at Cuomo in a tweet, not backing down from his faith.

“The verses I tweet are usually the ones chosen by the Catholic Church for that days mass,” Rubio wrote. “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. AMEN.”
