    Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. endorses Trump

    Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., the son of the late televangelist, endorsed Donald Trump on Tuesday, giving Republican front-runner the blessing of one of the evangelical community’s biggest names just days before the Iowa caucuses.

    In a statement announcing his endorsement, Falwell called Trump “a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again.” Falwell will speak at Trump's rally tonight.

    I love it because Trump isn't that religious compared to the other candidates.

    He was hilarious referencing 2 Corinthians instead of second Corinthians. Pretty obvious he had never been in a church before.

    Televangelist phonies like Falwell know it's all bullshit anyway, so of course he would not have a problem endorsing that thrice-married, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage New York liberal Donald Trump.

    Jerry Falwell Sr. first made a name for himself by campaigning against interracial marriage. So definitely a good fit for the Trump campaign.

    "Hey, how 'bout this Bible thingy! Boy, 1200 pages of 6 point font, weird words, and no pictures. I don't know; I like things with pictures. Lots of pictures. But how about that Jesus fella? Right? I mean, what'a guy. He's a pal of mine. Good guy, that Jesus. He's fishing, he's changing water into wine, he's throwing tax collectors out of temples. I mean, who doesn't like to throw tax collectors out of temples? Not that you have many of those temples here in Iowa, if you know what I mean. But the tax collectors. Boy, I could use a world without those losers. And speaking of losers, what about that Cruz guy."

    I don't think Trump realizes that people will judge him negatively by his endorsements

    Makes sense - Falwell is an idiot, and his school graduates incompetents.
