Lawrence O’Donnell sparred with the Rev. Franklin Graham on his Monday show about Donald Trump and President Obama’s religion.
The interview came one day after Graham caused a stir by speaking favorably about a potential Trump campaign, and by raising doubts, as he has done in the past, about whether Obama is a Christian and a natural-born American citizen. Graham’s remarks were condemned by the White House on Monday.
O’Donnell asked Graham how he could have come so close to endorsing a potential candidate for the presidency. He said he was just answering a question, and told O’Donnell, “maybe you could give me some advice” about how to answer in future.
