Franklin Graham Likes What he Hears from Trump
Via an interview with ABC News, evangelist Franklin Graham said:
“Donald Trump, when I first saw that he was getting in, I thought, well, this has got to be a joke,” said Graham. “But the more you listen to him, the more you say to yourself, you know, maybe this guy’s right.”
This strikes me as odd for two reasons.
First, one would expect Graham to be focused on social issues and while Trump has paid some lip service to social issues of late (specifically abortion) it isn’t like Tump’s lifestyle has been that of your stereotypical Baptist, shall we say (you know, owning casinos, the divorces and such).
Second, if Graham has been impressed with what he is hearing, this calls Graham’s judgement into question since mostly Trump has been spouting Birther nonsense and the notion that what we need is an arrogant and belligerent foreign policy the likes of which would make George W. Bush’s seem timid and bashful by comparison.
I am at a loss as to what Graham would find appealing here.
