Conservative Christian leader gets schooled by a pastor after claiming Trump defends families

Timothy Head, executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, tried to present Trump as a defender of family values who upholds the sanctity of life, and got smacked down for his hypocrisy by both Reverend Raphael Warnock, senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and MSNBC host Katy Tur.


"When it comes to the voting booth, we have seen more protection of innocent life," Head replied when Tur asked why evangelicals stick with Trump, despite his multiple marriages and unrepentant adultery. "For most white evangelicals across the country, the question of life and innocence remains the number one driving public policy driving question. I think we have seen progress on that."

"I don't mean to interrupt but we have innocent children being separated from parents at the border," shot back Warnock. "Those are our babies."

Head began to concede that his organization favored a "much more thoughtful approach", when Tur asked pointedly "what about keeping them in detention? Indefinitely?" Head continued to talk about streamlining immigration, but Tur called him out for dodging the issue.

"If you're talking about being pro-life and protecting fetuses, protecting babies in the womb, what about the babies who are being taken away from their parents at the border?" she asked. "Why was that not as offensive, if not more offensive, than something like abortion?"

Head replied that Congress needs to do something about immigration.
