National Prayer Breakfast Crowd Shouts Down Reporter Asking About Trump’s Stormy Daniels Lies
President Donald Trump’s National Prayer Breakfast concluded with NBC News Kirsten Welker asking him about the $130,000 payoff to porn star Stormy Daniels (video below).
Trump signed the “White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative” in front of applauding Christian conservative leaders, which will give them more power and influence, notes Religion News Service.
Some of the Christian evangelicals in attendance shouted “shame” at Welker for asking the Daniels question, tweeted EWTN journalist Lauren Ashburn:

NBC News reporter Kelly O’Donnell recalled the mood of the Christian audience to MSNBC (video below):
And when the president has made a significant change in his public statements about an event and a situation that has a real impact on his presidency, there is a responsibility to try to ask these questions.
I can tell you that members that were guest here were not pleased that there were reports being done from the back of the Rose Garden or comments like questions being asked from reporters.
