James Dobson Continues To Support Trump Because His Comments ‘Don’t Threaten The Future Of This Nation’

Rep. Louie Gohmert continues to guest host the “Point of View” radio program this week, and yesterday he interviewed Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, who said that while he is offended by Donald Trump bragging that he can get away with sexually assaulting women, he will continue to support him because his comments “don’t threaten the future of this nation.”

Gohmert said that though he regrets some of the things that Trump has said in the past, he is “more concerned about America having a future” and therefore will continue to support him. Dobson agreed, pointing to marriage equality and transgender rights as evidence that, as a nation, “we’ve gone nuts, we’ve gone crazy.”

Trump’s comments were “inexcusable,” Dobson said, “but as awful as they were, they don’t threaten the future of this nation and to elect Hillary Clinton because of this terrible language is to turn America on its ear and we will never recover from it.”

“If Hillary Clinton appoints [Antonin] Scalia’s replacement” to the Supreme Court, Gohmert added, “then our rights are done as Christians.”
