The most recent New Abnormal podcast which is done by Rick Wilson of The Lincoln Project and Molly Jong Fast of The Daily Beast discusses the pool boy situation with Jerry Falwell Jr. Rick Wilson raises the question whether or not Falwell opened himself up to blackmail especially as many people thought he would endorse Texas Senator Ted Cruz at Liberty University.
“The man who has everything figured out is probably a fool.“
Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
Psalm 119:165 NIV
The Jerry Falwell Jr and Becki Falwell story with their pool boy is one of the items for discussion on The New Abnormal Podcast on The Daily Beast. The New Abnormal Podcast is led by Molly Jong Fast a journalist for The Daily Beast and Rick Wilson. Rick Wilson, a well known Never Trumper helped co-found The Lincoln Project which is getting a lot of press in the 2020 election cycle. This blog wrote about The Lincoln Project and evangelicals in, “The Lincoln Project Targets Evangelical Christians Who Are President Trump Supporters.” The New Abnormal ends with a segment known as “Fuck that Guy.” In their newest podcast this segment is dedicated to Jerry Falwell Jr. Rick has fun with this segment in saying, “Can you imagine Jerry Falwell Jr pointing to his wife in a hotel room and saying, fuck that guy.” On a more serious note in the podcast Wilson states that among the evangelicals he interacted with in politics it was expected that Jerry Falwell Jr would endorse Ted Cruz of Texas. Many were shocked by his endorsement of Trump. The former Republican political strategist raises the issue of whether or not the pool boy situation opened up Jerry Falwell Jr to being blackmailed by Trump.
