Franklin Graham Rips Trump Comments, Urges Voters to Turn Out for SCOTUS

Franklin Graham Rips Trump Comments, Urges Voters to Turn Out for SCOTUS

By    |   Saturday, 08 October 2016 03:00 PM

The Rev. Franklin Graham Saturday slammed Donald Trump's "crude" remarks in the 2005 video that was leaked on Friday and called on Americans to vote on Nov. 8 because "the most important issue of this election is the Supreme Court."

"The crude comments made by Donald J. Trump more than 11 years ago cannot be defended," Graham said on Facebook. "But the godless progressive agenda of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton likewise cannot be defended."

Graham is the head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Samaritan's Purse Global Charity.


"I am not endorsing any candidates in this election," he continued. "I have said it throughout this presidential campaign, and I will say it again: both candidates are flawed."
In the tape, leaked to The Washington Post and NBC News, Trump made lewd and sexually charged comments about women as he waited to make a cameo appearance on a soap opera in 2005.

Trump bragged about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women who were not his wife on the recordings, caught on a live microphone, in a conversation with Billy Bush, then a host of the television show "Access Hollywood."

The nominee issued a video apology late Friday. The debacle came two days before Trump's second debate with Hillary Clinton.

"The only hope for the United States is God," Graham said on Facebook. "Our nation’s many sins have permeated our society, leading us to where we are today.

"But as Christians, we can’t back down from our responsibility to remain engaged in the politics of our nation.

"On Nov. 8, we will all have a choice to make," the evangelist continued. "The two candidates have very different visions for the future of America.

"The most important issue of this election is the Supreme Court. That impacts everything.

"There’s no question, Trump and Clinton scandals might be news for the moment," Graham added, "but who they appoint to the Supreme Court will remake the fabric of our society for our children and our grandchildren, for generations to come."
