    What’s wrong with reading the Bible alone given the circumstances

  2. Richard Pierce Reply

    I thought he said God had nothing to do with them “overcoming” COVID19? It is amazing that now he’s quoting scripture.

    So I guess, politics and religion are in the boardgame. Thought the was a separation of politics and religion.

    Can someone care to educate me in the subject……

    Have you guys noticed……Trump doesn’t fire back at Cuomo and he hasn’t fired back at Booker either, and Booker directly called him out in Washington about mishandling peaceful protesters and challenged Trump to “start with me the next time you want to gas somebody”. He’s a big cowardly bully. He knows who he can and cannot pick on.

    What verse are you reading from? You give the book and chapter, but what verse? I think you dont read the Bible ETHIER!

    He didn’t read the Bible, he read from a paper in the Bible . . . And didn’t he say God didn’t help NY with the Coronavirus? NY did that on their own?

  12. Ronald P Reply

    Oh come on Andy. You know the Republicans are too busy using the Bible as a weapon too actually read it.

  13. Tammy Tungett Reply

    President Cuomo 😊

  14. Jim Thornton Reply

    Andrew, I am appreciative of the point you were trying to make, but telling a room full of journalists that they aren’t well-read, well, that’s clearly not reading the room!

    Think about this Mr trump, your sins will find you out!!!!

  16. freesk8 Reply

    He’s a total hypocrite. Matthew 6:6: “5And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward. 6But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard.…” Both Cuomo and Trump are trying to use their faith to promote their own political power. They are trying to project the idea that they are men of faith. They are using the Bible for their own personal advantage. Let them pray in privacy.

    Why didn’t you put out the fire? Democratic governors did nothing. The riots stopped on their own. National guard was told to stay down. Watch the videos. They did nothing to stop it. Search it up and find out who really caused those fires. Then they didn’t want to put them out.

    As a scientist (i.e. athiest/intellectual) — that was very funny and I applaud any use of the bible to make fun of Trump, including reading a bunch of nonsense on tv.

  24. Chef Doris T Reply

    Great scriptures reading very appropriate. Dumb Donald couldn’t even come up with a scripture to read instead he just holds it up. Please vote him out. Donald divided this country so bad that the racist people don’t even try to hide their racism anymore.

    Amen. All haters give this a thumbs down. Ignorant Trump followers.

    Thank you for pointing out what the Bible truly says, as opposed to using it as a prop after ordering police brutality on peaceful citizens who were PROTESTING that very thing…police brutality.

  64. Dixie Goldsmith Reply

    There are two perspectives of every person, their thoughts and actions. To imitate Trump, holding a Bible, and then, even going a step farther, to Read it using a verse in it to show disrespect for him Holding the Bible. Then to say You are the one putting out the Flames in the House Divided?? Really?

    Keep religion out of politics. Politicians have used it for ages to suit their purposes, it’s nothing new. There is supposed to be such a thing as separation of church and state in this country.

    Doesn’t the Bible mention something about bearing false witness against others. I don’t think Gumu has read that passage. If he has, he’s ignored it, because he lies about and slanders Trump every day.

    Lord hear Our Prayers. Lord send in your Army. The one thus covers my being the Armies of the Heart the mind the body and the soul. Here’s mine, get into my feet I pray to the Officer who controls my feet so I don’t speed and stop as if I’m landing a plane. I never doubt my prayer I ask Doctor how my heart ? Take two aspirin. I do and it works if not- go to the hospital. Pray many angels and saints answer these calls. It doesn’t mean they’re perfect. God Dad it’s almost Fathers day, listen I am going to buy a smart watch for me for you. Yes I even got you a new puppy for me, look from Heaven you know who I am. Although crossed over my Father is here, why I don’t doubt it. Fix my car Dad, I’m stupid, fix my teeth, he said go to the dentist. He isn’t a dentist. My Mother is incredible at her best, crossed over I call her spirit let’s go shopping find me the best deal. I even pray to Wal-Mart’s Mgr, where is such n such like a robot I find it. Lord see Coumo smile he’s got a little brother. Lord they make my heart happy Amen.

    Next time, I vote that he reads from Harry Potter. The stories & quotes are much more believable than the bible and it’s a much more modern work of fiction.

    It’s ironic that you talk about piece makers when the democrats invaded,bombed,tortured and killed people around the world for oil and setting up banks . Pathetic reading from the Bible.
