Donald Trump has turned the Republican primary into a WWE-style wrestling match, and when Liberty University’s president Jerry Falwell Jr’s endorsed the candidate, he unknowingly stepped into the ring himself. Some of Liberty’s well-known alumni responded to the announcement with fierce criticism. Falwell defended himself by arguing that his was a personal endorsement and not intended to represent the college.
But the fight grew fiercer yesterday when Jerry Falwell Jr’s wife, Becki, posted a pointed response to her husband’s critics on her Facebook page. The post sought to counter the “many self-righteous posts from LU alumni who are trying to re-write history in an attempt to claim that somehow LU has ‘changed’ for the worse.”
