Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Friday posted one of his regular Bible quotes on Twitter, and he once again found himself getting raked over the coals by his followers because the quote bore direct relevance to the senator's relationship with President Donald Trump.
"Do not be friendly with hotheads, nor associate with the wrathful, Lest you learn their ways, and become ensnared," Rubio wrote, quoting from the Bible verse Proverbs 22:24-25.
Do not be friendly with hotheads,nor associate with the wrathful,Lest you learn their ways,and become ensnared. Proverbs 22:24-25— Marco Rubio (@Marco Rubio)1565955483.0
Given the president's reputation for being a wrathful hothead, however, Rubio's latest Bible quote instantly opened him up to charges of hypocrisy.
