And I can see why.

His pants were unzipped, his midriff was out, and his glass was filled with a dark liquid he called “black water.”
But Jerry Falwell Jr., one of President Trump’s loudest evangelical supporters, said the provocative vacation photo he posted and then deleted last weekend was little cause for concern — even after it drew both cries of confusion and charges of hypocrisy as it circulated around the Internet.
No matter that students at Liberty University, the Virginia school Falwell leads with a tight grip, are told to dress “modestly” and banned from consuming media that feature nudity or sexual content. The university president said in an apology this week that he was merely taking part in a costume party on a yacht.
“I’ve promised my kids I’m going to try to be a good boy from here on out,” he said Wednesday during a radio interview with WLNI, adding that the picture was “just in good fun.”
That appeared to be that. Until Thursday, when Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), a Baptist minister and former Liberty instructor, said it was one too many scandals for the embattled president of the nation’s largest Christian university.
“Jerry Falwell Jr’s ongoing behavior is appalling,” Walker, the vice chairman of the powerful House Republican Caucus, wrote on Twitter. “I’m convinced Falwell should step down.”
Walker’s statement marks the strongest rebuke yet by a Republican elected official, even as Falwell, Liberty’s president since 2007, has faced repeated scrutiny over his leadership of the university and his personal choices off-campus.
Jerry Jr. is a fucking mess.
You may also remember that Falwell has been accused of abusing staff members, mismanaging university funds, wife swapping, and of course, there is the cabana boy.
At this point, the only thing surprising about these photos is that Falwell even bothered to try and explain them away.
I wonder what the stuffy Jerry Sr. would say if he could see how his son has shit all over his legacy?
