Court Evangelical: “That’s Not the Donald Trump I Know”

How long will court evangelical Jerry Falwell Jr. be deceived?  He really believes Trump.

Here is Kevin Williamson at The National Review:

I don’t know what we ultimately will discover about Donald Trump’s relationship with pornographic actress Stormy Daniels. But here’s a question for, say, Jerry Falwell Jr. and other high-profile Christian supporters of Donald Trump: When you heard the allegation that Trump had conducted an extramarital affair with a porn star and paid her $130,000 in hush money, did you think to yourself: “My, that doesn’t sound like the Donald Trump I know! The Donald Trump I know is a man of high character and personal probity, and would never treat his family that way.”

Wow!  Again, the phrase “that doesn’t sound like the Donald Trump I know” sounds so much like what Billy Graham said about Nixon when he read the Watergate transcripts.  I cover the Graham-Nixon relationship in Chapter 4 of Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump.  (Pre-order today!)
