Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio is being brutally scolded online for using the Bible and invoking God and Jesus to attack Democrats and defend Donald Trump’s crimes.
Rubio on Thursday gave up all pretense and used his religion to blast Democrats directly while trying to shield President Donald Trump.
On Wednesday, the Republican Senator wrote: “Had not the LORD been with us when people rose against us, then they would have swallowed us alive, for their fury blazed against us. Then the waters would have engulfed us,the torrent overwhelmed us; then seething water would have drowned us. Psalms 124:2-5.” But Rubio wasn’t done.
On Thursday morning, the Florida Republican cut to the chase quickly, attacking Democrats for investigating Trump while saying no one except Jesus “deserves blind loyalty.”
“There’s only been ONE man EVER who was always right & deserves blind loyalty & his name was Jesus,” Rubio tweeted. “And no matter what a Republican does the left will never be fair to them. What they want is Republicans who will douse themselves in kerosene & light a match,” he added.
Mockery quickly unfolded:
Two things are true
There’s only been ONE man EVER who was always right & deserves blind loyalty & his name was Jesus;
No matter what a Republican does the left will never be fair to them. What they want is Republicans who will douse themselves in kerosene & light a match.

One thing is true: If the hell you say you believe in exists—you're a shoe-in.

It’s peculiar that you would invoke both Jesus and politics.

Two things are true:
-you are a dweeb
-you do not behave in a Christ-like fashion ever on account of the first point

Remember how Jesus loved embarrassingly petty political grievances and self-flagellation? If you’re gonna spend your time playing pretend martyr, maybe don’t compare yourself to an actual martyr.

"Only Jesus deserves blind loyalty…
HAVING SAID THAT
I am only one-eye-blind loyal to Donald Trump."

Linking Jesus and the Republicans.
You are a disgusting human being.
