When Jared Kushner went before the Senate, Donald Trump’s evangelical super very best friends rushed out with coordinated statements saying Kushner is a great guy. When Trump defended Planned Parenthood, they defended Trump. Some of them even defended his Access Hollywood tape.
So where are they now? Will they dare come out to defend the President’s moral equivocating? Or will they have the decency to publicly, even if diplomatically, suggest the President got it wrong. My guess is that they will use the President’s most recent statement to claim he got it right, but everyone needs to notice that they were silent on Saturday.
They were silent in their pulpits. Well, not all of them. Franklin Graham had the audacity to defend the President’s Saturday comments on his Facebook page.
