Host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Joe Scarborough tweeted biblical quotes Tuesday despite having criticized the Trump administration’s references to the Bible.
Back on Friday, Scarborough said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was either ignorant or lying and mentioned her references of the Good Book. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Compares Illegal Immigrant Processing Center To Nazi Death Camps)
“The question is, is she ignorant, which would actually be better for her if she just were — came out and said ‘I’m ignorant and I don’t know what I’m talking about’. Or is she a liar?” Scarborough said. “So do you think she really — I just don’t understand why and for somebody quoting the bible, as much as she was quoting the bible — that’s why I hope that she’s just completely ignorant and isn’t lying on purpose to the American people. That many times, Mika, that would be terrible.”
He had no problem referencing the Bible to back up his own views, quoting Jesus from the Book of Matthew along with the Book of James.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Scarborough for comment and he provided this statement:
Sarah Sanders and Jeff Sessions are quoting the Bible to justify the ripping of children out of their mother’s arms. You don’t have to be a Southern Baptist theologian to understand the teachings of Jesus conflict with that policy in a way that is causing great concern among Evangelical, Catholic and other Christian leaders. As for my quoting Jesus in tweets, I’m regret that offends the Daily Caller.
