Evangelical activist Franklin Graham, who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest supporters, took to Facebook this week to defend the president from the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
Graham is defending Trump to his 8 million Facebook followers by misappropriating the words of the highly respected and revered journalist Bill Moyers as a weapon against the truth.
“Long-time journalist Bill Moyers said Sunday that for the first time in his life, he fears for the nation’s survival. Why? ‘Society, a democracy, can die of too many lies…’ I agree with him 100% on that—we just don’t agree on the source of the problem,” Graham wrote on Facebook Tuesday.
“For two years day after day, night after night, we heard Russian collusion—lie after lie, pushed by the liberal media,” he said.
“Then it was Ukraine and the whistleblower,” Graham continues, apparently having not watched the news for the past month or two.
“Bill Moyers shares in the interview that his ‘hope’ is that as citizens watch the impeachment hearings (which are totally partisan), they will ‘begin to doubt’ in President Donald J. Trump so there can be a shift that would sway the 2020 election.”
“It’s all about politics and winning the election, they don’t care about anything else,” he continues, falsely.
“They are scared to death of conservative values and threatened because President Trump can’t be pushed around and intimidated politically or personally.,” Graham claims, ignoring how the world’s dictators do just that. Dictators like Turkey’s President Erdogan, Russia’s President Putin, and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
“The lies of the progressive left and the hyper-liberal media are what is a serious threat to the future of our nation,” Graham adds, offering not an iota of proof.
“The Bible tells us, ‘The Lord detests lying lips…’ (Proverbs 12:22),” he concludes.
