Jerry Falwell Jr posted a totally bizarre photo on Instagram of him with a flame haired younger woman with both of their shirts up and their pants unzipped and folded down and a glass of a dark liquid in his left hand. Just a reminder - Falwell is the President of Liberty University, the largest Christian University in the world, a university that bars students from drinking, fines them for dancing, and fines women if they wear a 2-piece bathing suit. Not sure if God would approve of this photo, or if it would fall within their Honor Code. And this is before we get to the insult of him partying on "his" yacht, acquired with the tuition of those college students.
It is just so weird.
The photo caption said:
“More vacation shots. Lots of good friends visited us on the yacht. I promise that’s only black water in my glass. It was a prop only.”
Jerry, the issue isn't with the "black water" in your glass. It is the whole image.
Twitter tried to explain it? I think? Was it a riff on the Canadian hit show, Trailer Park Boys (which is HILARIOUS, by the way...)
I deleted after I got more context on the photo. It was Jerry, so I was wrong.
It was a photo taken out of context of the other photos w/ it. Did you know that?
What it was was being used to imply is ungodly & seems to have been posted out of context for that reason. https://t.co/PRPNNuP6Ze

PEG BUNDY! That is exactly who she looks like.
Help! I tried to look anywhere not-alarming in this Jerry Falwell Jr. photo and I sprained my eyeballs! People are coming up with all kinds of kooky theories about this pic, but I’ll just go ahead & say it. That is the best Peg Bundy impersonator I’ve ever seen! https://t.co/Eq7SkM0Xxd

There were already so many good reasons not to entrust your kids to Jerry Falwell Jr’s learning institution. The unzipped pants yacht photo - of the school’s PRESIDENT - is sadly the least of them.

Can you imagine if a Democratic lawmaker posted this type of photo? FOX News* would be all over them for being heathens, anti-Christian, lovers of the devil.
Where there's smoke, there's fire.
