Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is known for tweeting biblical passages. But he probably wasn’t expecting to get scolded by “God” after he mentioned the “LORD” over the weekend.
“How can I repay the LORD for all the great good done for me? Psalms 116-12,” Rubio wrote.
Not only did an account named “God” respond to him, but Devin Nunes’ Cow and Mia Farrow all had obnoxious replies. With this question, the senator appeared to be begging to get trolled by his political enemies.
“By resigning,” wrote @TheTweetOfGod, who goes by “God.”
A blogger concurred, “Quit politics?”
CNN legal analyst Ranato Mariotti told Rubio to help the poor: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Randy Bryce, director of community outreach for NewsTalk15, remarked, “Move to Russia and help spread the word?”
Farrow had advice for Rubio. “You could stand strong against Trump for our country,” she wrote. “You know very well how destructive and malevolent he is.”
Devin Nunes’ Cow was also part of the peanut gallery. “Resign and make amends to those you’ve harmed,” the cow wrote.
Alleged motivational speaker Bob Clendenin was especially discouraging. He tweeted, “Just spitballing ideas here – how about by not being a hypocritical partisan hack who makes excuses for a pathologically lying corrupt traitor?”
Even the founder of the band Train had a reaction.
“By resigning,” wrote Jimmy Stafford. “#GOPHypocrites.”
None of this stopped Rubio from continuing to spout religious citations.
On Sunday, Mother’s Day, he wrote about women fearing the Lord and praising her for her acts as opposed to her beauty.
“‘Many are the women of proven worth, but you have excelled them all.’ Charm is deceptive & beauty fleeting; the woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Acclaim her for the work of her hands & let her deeds praise her at the city gates. Proverbs 31:29-31”
On Monday morning, the senator continued his Bible lessons.
“As the earth brings forth its shoots, and a garden makes its seeds spring up, So will the Lord GOD make justice spring up, and praise before all the nations. Isaiah 61:11”
