  • Junior Falwell’s lame defense of Trump

        Lost recently in all the back and forth between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was a fairly remarkable op-ed piece in defense of Trump written by none other than Junior Falwell.
        You know, Jerry Falwell, Jr., whom I like to describe as LU’s “gun-slinging chancellor.” He earned that title after his embrace of guns on campus so that students might “end those Muslims” should something occur.
