MSNBC’s Ali Velshi went after the Trump administration on Friday by reading multiple passages from the Bible to counter the administration’s recent comments that following the law is biblical.
The segment came after Attorney General Jeff Sessions used a passage from the Bible to respond to some church leaders who criticized the administration’s stances on illegal immigration. He said, “Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution.”
“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” Sessions continued.
Velshi responded with a “What would Jesus do?” segment, using passages from the Bible to counteract the scripture that Sessions cited.
