Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki criticized Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson on her show for being a “religious fundamentalist.”

Psaki highlighted Johnson’s self-description as a “Bible-believing Christian” and warned that he is not just a threat due to his political beliefs but also because he is a “Christian fundamentalist.”

Johnson has faced both praise and criticism for invoking God and the Bible in his role as Speaker of the House. (Trending: Joe Biden Historic Take Down of Guns)

During his election speech, Johnson expressed his belief that God has raised up those in authority and that each member of Congress has a responsibility to serve the country.

“First glance, Mike Johnson does seem fine,” Psaki said. “Fine-ish. Conservative, yes. But he once started a civility caucus with a Democrat. And I mean, if nothing else, he wears a suit and has glasses,” she continued. “How threatening can this guy actually be?”

“I am a Bible-believing Christian,” Johnson said. “Someone asked me today in the media, they said, well, it’s curious. People are curious, what does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun?” he said in the clip. “I said, Well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That’s my world view.”

“You heard that right,” Psaki said. “The Bible doesn’t just inform his worldview, it is his worldview.”

“Most Americans might not be able to pick Mike Johnson out of a lineup, but in reality he’s far from benign,” Psaki continued.

“It’s not just his political ideology that should scare us. Johnson is basically a Christian fundamentalist,” she continued.

Johnson previously said, “I don’t believe there are any coincidences in a matter like this. I believe that Scripture and the Bible is very clear that God is the one that raises up those in authority. He raised up each of you, all of us.”

“And I believe God has ordained and allowed each one of us to be brought here for this specific moment and this time. This is my belief,” he added.

“I believe that each one of us has a huge responsibility today to use the gifts that God has given us to serve the extraordinary people of this great country and they deserve it,” he concluded.
