The White House’s election watch party on Tuesday night was a gathering for ghouls of all sorts, including First Daughter Ivanka Trump and Liberty University president and right-wing Evangelical shithead Jerry Falwell Jr.
Aside from being a nauseating Trump fan boy and reliable anti-LGBTQ bigot, Falwell also a staunch advocate of concealed carry on college campuses. In the days after the December 2015 mass shooting in San Bernardino, Falwell encouraged students at Liberty to get permits to carry concealed weapons. “I’ve always thought that if more good people had concealed-carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in,” said Falwell. In March of this year, Liberty opened a gun range on its campus.
While Falwell seems to have mostly kept his mouth shut (aside from regularly fawning over Trump), he recently defended accused sexual predator and Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore, citing “false” sexual assault accusations against Trump as his justification.
“It comes down to a question who is more credible in the eyes of the voters—the candidate or the accuser,” Falwell told Religion News. “The same thing happened to President Trump a few weeks before his election last year except it was several women making allegations. He denied that any of them were true and the American people believed him and elected him the 45th president of the United States.”
