Billy Graham’s granddaughter smacks down modern evangelicals for ‘hypocritical’ Trump support

Published

on

Rev. Billy Graham’s granddaughter on Tuesday slammed evangelicals for their hypocrisy when it comes to the “personal morals” of candidates like Alabama’s Roy Moore — and President Donald Trump.

The term evangelical “started to really represent, actually, a branch of Christians that seemed to be a little more conservative and a little bit more hypocritical, a little bit more willing to compromise on the personal morals of a candidate in lieu of what politically they could gain for their party,” Jerushah Armfield, Graham’s granddaughter, told CNN’s Pamela Brown.

When Brown asked Armfield about her uncle Franklin Graham’s recent tweet heaping praise on Trump, the evangelist’s granddaughter and wife of a pastor in South Carolina said she thinks he was referencing the president “wanting to bring back Merry Christmas.” She also suggested that the “War on Christmas” that Trump (according to right-wing news outlets) has “won,” is a non-issue.

“I haven’t seen ‘Merry Christmas’ really be attacked,” Armfield said. “I‘ve been told ‘Merry Christmas’ by all sorts of walks of lives and all sorts of cultures just this year.”

“I think my uncle is an incredible — he has an incredible humanitarian ministry that’s been on the front lines off often before a lot of ministries have been there,” she continued. “I think he probably needs to stick to doing that. I think he believes he’s speaking to a larger audience than he is. I think the audience he was once speaking to is starting to migrate to a little more progressive open mindedness.”

Trump “has not shown” himself to be a Christian, Armfield said, and has exhibited qualities that are the opposite of Christlike.

“My Jesus that I follow was really somebody who fought for the outliers,” she concluded, “and I think that Trump has actually done the opposite in kind of ostracizing them.”

Trump criticized for trying to discredit John Bolton in Twitter tantrum: ‘You should fire the moron who hired’ him

Published

on

President Donald Trump is now trying to discredit his former National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton, who has information on Trump so damning it could be the end of his presidency.

In a Twitter tantrum Trump attacked Bolton Wednesday morning, curiously not by name – presumably after reports said he had waived executive privilege previously by attacking Bolton.

For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..

GOP’s Doug Collins reveals Trump’s last line of defense: ‘No matter what happened the president did nothing wrong!’

Published

on

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) on Wednesday admitted that literally nothing President Donald Trump may have done would justify removing him from office.

During an interview on "Fox & Friends," Collins said that Republican senators should reject hearing from witnesses in the president's impeachment trial because nothing those witnesses could say would change the fact that Trump shouldn't be impeached.

"I think at the end of the day, when they look at the total case, they look at how it was presented, and how badly it was done in the House, and how poorly these articles were drafted... witnesses are not going to help this!" he said. "No matter what happened, the president did nothing wrong!"

Published

Rudy Giuliani denied claims by former national security adviser John Bolton, and kept the door open to his own possible impeachment testimony.

The former New York City mayor said he was still President Donald Trump's personal attorney, but explained why he had not been added to his impeachment trial defense team, reported CBS News.

"Well, I am, but I can't participate in what goes on in the Congress, because I'm a possible witness," Giuliani said, adding that he's ready to testify if he got White House approval.
