On Thursday morning, CNN’s Jake Tapper took it into his head to tweet a Bible verse about the sin of falsehood.
Tapper quoted the Book of Proverbs, Chapter 12 verse 22: “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.”
Proverbs 12:22: Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who act faithfully are his delight. https://t.co/fgjL6AsPnZ

As Mediaite.com noted, the CNN anchor didn’t mention any names, but fans of Pres. Donald Trump got very defensive very quickly.
@jaketapper Fake News CNN is an abomination to the LORD, especially Lying Jake Tapper.
