Jake Tapper Quotes Bible Verse To Shut Down Trump-Loving Pastor Who Criticized Stormy Daniels

On Monday, CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded with a Bible passage after a pastor who supports President Trump criticized Stormy Daniels in a tweet.

Following the highly anticipated “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Pastor Greg Locke, the founder of the Global Vision Bible Church in Tennessee, tweeted:

“The funny thing is @realDonaldTrump is still the President and she’s still a hooker. #StormyDanielsDay.”

In response, Tapper sent out a series of tweets quoting a Bible passage.

“Luke 7: 37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears,” Tapper tweeted.

Read the exchange in the tweets below:

The pastor later responded to Tapper, calling it a “great passage” and accusing the CNN anchor of hating his “support of Trump.”

“He changed her life by love and grace. She didn’t continue living in it and then get on national television to garner more attention for her nonsense. Context is key. The fact is, you hate my support of Trump w/out a Bible,” Locke tweeted.

Tapper fired back, saying he has “complete indifference” to his feelings about any politician.

“But you might want to reconsider a refresher course. Hint: the passage is not ‘hey, go throw stones!'” Tapper tweeted.

Locke has in the past spurred controversy over posts on social media. He has been critical of media organizations in the past and has praised Trump.

The exchange came after “60 Minutes” on Sunday aired its highly anticipated interview with Daniels, during which the adult film star revealed details about the affair she claims she had with Trump.
