Liberty President Jerry Falwell gave an interview on Wednesday regarding his now-infamous “yacht photos” and “yacht video“, shrugging off any question of impropriety and defending the incident as a vacation “costume party” that was “just in good fun.”
The interview with the Morningline show, a local radio station in Lynchburg, Va. was a brief and bizarre affair. Falwell came across as barely incoherent and quite frankly, sounds like he’s drunk or on drugs.
We at Pulpit & Pen have heard Falwell give many interviews and he’s never sounded as bad and mentally checked out as he does here. Perhaps a medical condition is contributing to his seeming impairment, but it’s as rough as the transcript indicates.
You know it was weird cuz…cuz….she..was… she was pregnant..she couldn’t get her…she couldn’t get her pants up and….er…I was like…trying to like…my… I had on a pair of jeans I haven’t worn in a long time and I couldn’t get mine zipped either. And, uh…and so I just put my belly… I just put my belly out like hers, and…it was just…um…she’s my wife’s assistant, and she’s a sweetheart, and I should never have put up and embarrassed her because…um…anyway, I’ve…Ive apologized to everybody, and I promised my kids I’m going…try to be…I’m gonna try to be a good boy from here.
When asked about the Trailer Park Boys party- a themed event based on foul, raunchy, and crude 18+ TV show filled with cursing, sex, and sundry vile content that would get any of his Liberty University Students demerits and disciplinary action if caught watching it, Falwell was hypocritical and unrepentant, demonstrating his radical unfitness to be leading a Christian University.
Yeah yeah, whatever whatever, it was…it was the costume party on…on…and…and…we were on vacation and…anyway long story short…it was just…ah…it was just in good fun. That’s it.
