Evangelist and zealous Trump supporter Franklin Graham refused to even acknowledge that Donald Trump lies.
Appearing on MSNBC, host Craig Melvin brought up a column Graham wrote for the Fox News website entitled “Truth — it’s 100 percent right, 100 percent of the time.”
Melvin noted that the Washington Post has found 8158 false or misleading statements from Trump.
“How do you reconcile that?”
“Well, I don’t know how to reconcile that, because I don’t know,” Graham responded.
He immediately attempted to change the conversation to the media.
“You have a fact checker for the president, but I don’t know if you have a fact checker for the media at the same time.”
Melvin tried to steer him back to the subject at hand: “Pastor Graham, you and I both know that this president has said things over and over that aren’t true.”
“No, I don’t know that,” Graham said. “I don’t sit around and try to find every fault in the president every day, looking for everything that he might have misspoken or mis-said. I don’t do that.”
Graham would only agree that Trump is sometimes wrong, in the same way that everyone is wrong sometimes, and then tried to change the conversation again.
