Jerry Falwell and James Dobson Defend Trump
Both Jerry Falwell and James Dobson made statements to the Washington Post after Trump's lewd comments toward women were released this past weekend.
"The comments Mr. Trump made 11 years ago were deplorable and I condemn them entirely. I also find Hillary Clinton's support of partial birth abortion criminal and her opinion of evangelicals to be bigoted. There really is only one difference between the two. Mr. Trump promises to support religious liberty and the dignity of the unborn. Mrs. Clinton promises she will not."
“I think this whole videotape thing was planned, I think it was timed, I think it might have even been a conspiracy among the establishment Republicans who’ve known about it for weeks and who tried to time it to do the maximum damage to Donald Trump,” Falwell told reporter Rita Cosby on her podcast after Sunday night’s debate according to the Post.
Falwell stated thr comments by Trump were by no means excusable,
“There was nothing defensible,” Falwell said on thr podcast interview to Cosby. “It was completely out of order, it’s not something I’m going to defend . . . it was reprehensible. We’re all sinners, every one of us. We’ve all done things we wish we hadn’t.
“We’re never going to have a perfect candidate unless Jesus Christ is on the ballot,” he said. “I’ve got a wife and a daughter, and nobody wants to hear their women talked about in that manner. It was just a horrible thing. He apologized. He was contrite about it.”
