Evangelist Franklin Graham, who has claimed to read people’s souls, said he didn’t know if President Donald Trump has lied.
MSNBC host Craig Melvin asked Graham how he reconciled supporting Trump, given Trump’s 8,158 lies, which were documented by the Washington Post.
Graham claimed that he didn’t know if Trump has lied, and questioned the honesty of journalists:
Well, I don’t know how to reconcile that, because I don’t know. 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.
Pastor Graham, you and I both know that this president has said things over and over that aren’t true.
Graham, who is not an ordained pastor and does not have a degree in religious studies, insisted that his ignorance of Trump’s lies was sincere:
No, I don’t know that. 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.
