He just made a big mistake.
According to The Daily Wire, Sens. Chris Coons (D-DE) and James Lankford (R-OK) appeared together on CBS’ “Face the Nation” with host Margaret Brennan to discuss the Senate’s weekly prayer group.
During the discussion, Brennan asked Sen. Lankford about President Trump’s behavior as it relates to his own faith.
Brennan asked, “We’re on the verge of this impeachment trial, and during the Clinton impeachment, we often heard from Republicans the criticism and the call for an American president to be a moral leader, and we heard about moral failings. These days, you will quietly hear criticism of the president from Republicans, but you don’t hear that loud criticism in the way we did 20 years ago. What has changed?”
Lankford then said, “I said very early on in the campaign time period when people asked me in 2016, “What are you looking for?” I said “Well, I always look for a president who can be a role model.” I don’t think that President Trump, as a person, is a role model for a lot of different youth. That’s just me personally.”
He added, “I don’t like the way that he tweets, some of the things that he says, his word choices at times are not my word choices. He comes across with more New York City swagger than I do from the Midwest, and definitely not the way that I’m raising my kids.” You can read the full article here.
