Hey P.E. readers! This is Franklin Graham complaining about the Super Bowl half time entertainment:

"I don’t expect the world to act like the church, but our country has had a sense of moral decency on prime time television in order to protect children. We see that disappearing before our eyes. It was demonstrated tonight in the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show—with millions of children watching. This exhibition was Pepsi showing young girls that sexual exploitation of women is okay. With the exploitation of women on the rise worldwide, instead of lowering the standard, we as a society should be raising it. I’m disappointed in Pepsi and the NFL."

This from a guy who ardently supports a man who cheated on his third wife (and the previous two) after she gave birth to his fifth child. Trump cheated on Melania with a porn star and a playmate bunny. And then had to pay them off to keep quiet about his adultery.

Also Trump has been credibly accused by 20+ women of rape, sexual assault and harassment.

What the hell is Graham doing drawing attention to Trump's miserable immoral piggish behavior by complaining about the Super Bowl half time show?

Graham has no right to whine about Lopez and Shakira as long as he accepts and supports Trump's whoremongering life.

Gawd! Trump and his supporters are disgusting hypocrites!

Well... I watched the halftime show. And let me say this... it was spectacular. I didn't expect anything less when I heard it was J Lo and Shakira. Maybe Franklin Graham was upset by women ruling the roost that night? Maybe it was the kids in the cages? Maybe it was J Lo's kid singing "Born in the USA" with the Puerto Rican flag on stage? Maybe it was Shakira doing the tongue trill of her roots in Lebanon, a US ally?

In any event, why has Franklin Graham complained for three years as President Trump has debased our culture and the White House with school yard taunts, bullying, mocking of people with disabilities and as a candidate, talking about grabbing pus*y?

If Franklin Graham were interested in really pushing back against the coarsening of our culture, he'd publicly rebuke his idol, President Trump.

The Trumpers who have always denigrated the polls are bombarding my blog with reporting that trump is at 49% approval with Gallup. So they believe the polls now but not when he was at 35%? In any event, he’s still the most unpopular president in modern American history more people hate him than like him.

Dave Miller said...

Re the polls... look, whatever is happening with Trump, the bloggers will never be consistent.

In fairness however, in February 2012, President Obama was under water at 48% disapprove and 45% approve.

Evangelical trumpers must be among the biggest hypocrites on the planet. As well as the most anal.

Gotta love that Trumpers are so deluded that still being under half of America approving of him is a great thing.
The poll is most likely either an aberration or a phony poll.

Quite often Right-wing morality is about what tempts them. They don't want to feel lust while watching the women (or men), and want those people to not be too attractive.

Look at what right-wings around the world do to avoid such temptation.

It's the sex-object that they blame, not the King.
