Falwell Quitting to Spend More Time Watching His Family, Cont.

Jerry-Junior has un-resigned!

CNN:

(CNN)Embattled evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. agreed to resign as Liberty University’s president Monday but withdrew his resignation when media reports about the decision emerged, the university said in a statement Monday night

After asking Falwell to take an indefinite leave on August 7, “additional matters came to light that made it clear that it would not be in the best interest of the University for him to return from leave and serve as President,” according to a statement from the university.

“Falwell responded by agreeing to resign immediately as President of Liberty University today but then instructed his attorneys to not tender the letter for immediate resignation,” according to the statement. Falwell Jr. told Virginia Business Monday that reports that he was resigning were “completely false.”

Chance the Gardener, er, Jerry Junior is apparently upset that reports that claimed he liked to watch:

However, a spokesperson for both Falwells said the claim that Jerry observed the two having sex was untrue and pointed to a specific line in his statement where Falwell said: “Becki had an inappropriate personal relationship with this person, something in which I was not involved.”

“Is it irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to.” – Bacardi Lifetime Achievement Winner, Peggy Noonan, Wall St. Journal, April 2000.

Look for Prznint Stupid’s stupidest lawyer and well-know fixer Michael Cohen to make a guest appearance in this story. You may recall that he’s already said that he helped the Falwells obtain some pictures of Becki from a blackmailer; but what he has never said is how, or how they were used. Remember, when the world was surprised that Falwell suddenly endorsed Lord Damp Nut? Methinks that those pictures played a role.

(Hat tip: Scissorhead Frank McCormick in the comments.)

Coincidentally, Cohen’s book is publishing soon, but the betting windows are open now. Get yer Quatloos out!

    As I remember it, Falwell himself looked kind of stunned when he made his initial announcement endorsing Donald Trump.

    I searched the Net yesterday looking for that video, to confirm my memory. But I wasn’t able to find a full version. Just short clips embedded within reports on the evening news. In those clips his affect does appear to be a little flat compared to his usual speech. But I would love to see the unedited copy.

      Found it! It’s actually the introduction Jerry made when Trump spoke at Liberty U.

      And, wow, my memory of Falwell’s bizarre affect was bang on. But the most striking thing to me today is how over the top is his description of Trump’s character. It reminds me of his physician’s report on his health and like that report, I am sure that Trump himself had a hand in the writing of Falwell’s speech.

    Didn’t (live) Herman Cain once say something about Jerry-Becki-Becki-Granada-Granada? 9-9-9 something something? I’m a bit hazy.

    “After hours of solemn self-reflection and deep introspection, I have decided to resign my position, in order to spend more time at home with my floozy.”

    “My husband likes to watch and he’s wearing a Speedo”: Falwell ‘pool boy’ recalls meeting the couple in 2012. Confirmation that Falwell & SPEEDOS are the devil’s own.
