Paula White, a prosperity gospel preacher who has been a key spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump for years and who recently joined the White House staff, appeared on “The Exceptional Conservative Show” last week, where she said that she continues to stand by Trump despite his pathological lying, misogyny, and complete lack of morals because abandoning him would reflect poorly on her own character.
When White was asked why she supports Trump even though he brags about sexually assaulting women, she insisted that Trump’s comment about his behavior was an anomaly and that, as his pastor, she was obligated to stand by him.
“It wasn’t a habit. It wasn’t a lifestyle, but all of us have parts of our life that we wish the whole world didn’t know,” White said. “When Mr. Trump was watching Christian television, a relationship developed and I became his pastor. So now, when he gets into politics—I mean, think about what this would say about my character? Because it’s not comfortable, now I am going to abandon you because it’s not convenient for me? Because people think you’re something that you’re not and they try to get you in a soundbite and you are a New York brash businessman, what, I’m going to abandon this now? What would that say about who I am?”
