Jerry Falwell Jr. posted and then quickly deleted a strange vacation photo, leaving some to question what was actually going on.

The photo, captured by Relevant Magazine, shows the Liberty University president on a yacht with his pants undone and his shirt hiked up. Next to him stands a young woman identified as a “friend” whose pants are similarly unzipped and Falwell was holding up her shirt to expose her abdomen. In his hand was a glass of dark liquid.

“I promise that’s just black water in my glass. It was a prop only,” the caption reads.

He then had another photo of himself frowning but claiming to have a “Fun vacation!”

Falwell’s father founded Liberty University, a far-right Christian institution that eagerly supported President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“In the hours after the screenshot of the photo was posted, Falkirk Center fellow Malachi O’Brien tweeted that the photo was ‘not President Falwell,’” the report said. “The Falkirk Center is the conservative thinktank Falwell started in partnership with Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk. O’Brien deleted that tweet and posted an update, confirming ‘it was Jerry.’”

O’Brien claimed the photo was “taken out of context of the other photos w/ it.”

“What it was was being used to imply is ungodly & seems to have been posted out of context for that reason,” O’Brien then tweeted.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe busts Trump’s latest distraction from his COVID-19 failures

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough hammered President Donald Trump for giving himself an "A" grade on the coronavirus response.

The "Morning Joe" host opened Monday's program with a new recording from journalist Bob Woodward, who said Trump's self-assessment was more sad than the tapes that helped bring down Richard Nixon.

"We can grade it from the very beginning where he was a liar and admitted he was a liar to the American people," Scarborough began, "when he had been told by his own people inside the White House in January, that this was going to be the biggest crisis he faced of his presidency. When his own trade adviser had told him that half a million Americans could die. With that information, Donald Trump was saying that it was one person coming in from China and soon it would go away. That's not helping you, that's not helping any American."

Things are so bad for Republicans the GOP had to send money to Texas

Published

on

In 2016, then-anti-Trump Republican Sen. Linsey Graham proclaimed, "If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed.......and we will deserve it." It seems his prediction is coming closer to fruition.

Financial reporting reveals that the Republican Party was forced to send $1.3 million to ruby-red Texas as the election nears.

It was something spotted by ProPublica developer and ex-reporter Derek Willis Sunday.

"That's never happened before," he tweeted.

He noted that the Texas GOP raised $3.3 million in August, but nearly half of that came from their national parents.
