Evangelical Pastor Disrespects John McCain By Comparing Him To Trump In Surreal Fox News Interview
Appearing on Fox News on Sunday, Evangelical Pastor Robert Jeffress compared President Donald Trump to deceased U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
During the interview, Fox & Friends host Griff Jenkins asked Jeffress if a lesson could be learned from the senator’s final speech extolling the importance of one’s convictions.
“I think there are two lessons we can all learn from him,” Jeffress said. “First of all, to be tenacious in your convictions.”
He then praised Trump by comparing him to the deceased war hero.
“Let’s be honest, the reason he and President Trump butt heads is because they are both men of conviction,” he added. “And we shouldn’t condemn either one for standing up for their convictions.”
