Christian Evangelist Franklin Graham, under fire for his hypocritical, intense defense of President Donald Trump, spoke with Axios to defend himself on Sunday.

Despite President Trump's extramarital affairs – including one allegedly with a porn star – despite his bragging about sexual assault, despite his clear lack of familiarity with the Christian Bible, and despite the policies and behaviors he champions daily, Graham gave one reason for his defense of the President.

"Now people say, 'Well Frank, but how can you defend him, when he's lived such a sordid life?'" Graham told Axios on HBO. "I never said he was the best example of the Christian faith. He defends the faith. And I appreciate that very much."
