As a part of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s multi-part interview with Fox News, daughters Jill and Jessa Duggar are speaking out in support of brother Josh Duggar, who molested both girls when they were children and he was a teen.

As Jessa Duggar told interviewer Megyn Kelly:

“I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying. I’m like, ‘That is so overboard and a lie really.’ I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”

Both women agree, however, that Josh Duggar’s actions were “very wrong.”

Pencil in the second half of the Duggar interview for this Friday on Fox News and then make plans—practically any plan will do—so that you can avoid it.
