Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University, told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that Democrats are hiding behind the nationwide unrest over George Floyd’s death in police custody to use it to deflect from their own problems in 2020.
“They’ve got nothing left,” he said. “They’ve got John Durham’s prosecution staring the Obama people right in the face and the only way they can deal with that is try to get ahead of it with some sort of counter-attack, and I really believe that that’s the cause of all this.”
Durham, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut, has been leading the inquiry into the Russia collusion investigation that President Trump has called a “witch hunt.” Durham was tasked with determining if there was any misconduct by law enforcement officials during the collusion probe. There have been reports that Peter Strzok, the fired FBI agent, could be one of the targets.

“I think they see the writing on the wall due to what they did from Trump’s election to inauguration and after that,” he said.
Falwell said a conversation needs to take place on how to best help inner-city youth. He said it is time for teachers’ unions to step aside so the country can offer school choice, vouchers and let them attend private schools that are not controlled by the unions.
He said universities in California are getting rid of test scores because public schools are doing such a poor job in preparing students for college.
The mainstream media has been called out over its presentation of Floyd unrest when compared to Trump rallies and First Amendment protests.
Falwell also called out the hypocrisy in the media over its treatment of protesters supporting Black Lives Matter amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“You can have a protest to defund the police, but you can’t have a Trump rally,” he said. “Explain that one to me, Todd.”
“I’m still trying to figure that one out,” Todd Starnes, the host, responded.
Starnes pointed to an upcoming Trump rally in Tulsa, Okla., that has received one million RSVPs despite warnings from health officials about coronavirus dangers.
