Jerry Falwell Jr. angrily insisted that he had never denied visiting a Miami Beach nightclub, where he was photographed partying with his wife, sons and daughter-in-law.

The Liberty University president was the subject of a Politico Magazine report based on anonymous quotes from school officials and other insiders describing his self-dealing and personal immorality, and his denials of the nightclub photographs led the the release of more photos — and more denials.

“Just for the record, I never denied going into a club with my family to listen to music for about 30 minutes years ago,” Falwell tweeted Wednesday. “I only denied I asked anyone to scrub pics of me. I never knew of any pics until a week ago DUH. LU’s lawyers and criminal authorities will go after the leakers.”

Brandon Ambrosino, the Liberty graduate who wrote the Politico feature, set the record straight.

“There was no picture snapped of me at WALL nightclub or any other nightclub,” Falwell told him Aug. 21, when asked about the photos. “I’m sure you already knew that though.”

Five days later, after being shown the photos, Falwell insisted that wasn’t actually him at the nightclub.

“If the person in the picture is me, it was likely photo-shopped [sic],” Falwell told Ambrosino on Aug. 26.

Falwell angrily replied to a Christian Post political analyst who called out his dishonesty.

“Maybe it was photoshopped, I don’t know,” Falwell replied to Napp Nazworth, of the religious publication. “But you’re missing the point: I never denied I was there 5 years ago. #FactsMatter”

The evangelical university president also replied to paleontologist and TV personality Trevor Valle, who accused him of lying about the incident.

“I never denied being there 5 years ago and I had no knowledge of any pics until a week ago,” Falwell tweeted. “#FactsMatter”

The owner of the photography agency World Red Eye, which documents Miami’s nightlife, stood behind the accuracy of the photos and strongly rejected Falwell’s suggestion that the images had been manipulated in any way.

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

on

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant

Published

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
