Evangelist Franklin Graham: Trump & Porn Star Stormy Daniels Is ‘Nobody’s Business,’ Doesn’t Mention Cover-Up & Payoff To Daniels

Evangelist Franklin Graham defended President Donald Trump who reportedly had a sexual affair with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006 while married to his third wife Melania who had recently given birth to their son Barron.

During an interview with The Associated Press, Graham failed to mention that Trump paid Daniels $130,000 (via lawyer Michael Cohen) to keep quiet weeks before the 2016 election (a likely campaign law violation), and recently lied about the payoff.

Instead, Graham claimed that God made Trump president — by losing the popular vote by 3 million —  and invoked former President Bill Clinton to defend Trump’s reported adultery:

I think somehow God put him in this position. Because he’s not a politician, he seemed to do everything wrong as a politician: he offended many people, did the wrong things – but somehow he became president.

And I just have to think that God, in some reason, put him there for a purpose. I don’t know what that is, but we need to get behind him and support him.

I don’t have concern, in a sense, because these things happened many years ago – and there’s such bigger problems in front of us as a nation that we need to be dealing with than other things in his life a long time ago. I think some of these things – that’s for him and his wife to deal with.

I think when the country went after President Clinton, the Republicans, that was a great mistake that should never have happened.

And I think this thing with Stormy Daniels and so forth is nobody’s business. And we’ve got other business at hand that we need to deal with.

On this thing with Stormy Daniels and so forth: This stuff happened 12 years ago. This isn’t behavior that has taken place since he’s been president. These things happened long before he became president.

That doesn’t make it right. And I don’t defend those kinds of relationships he had. But the country knew the kind of person he was back then, and they still made the decision to make him the president of the United States.
