Fox’s Bolling Defends Trump’s Crass Romney Line: ‘When I Go to Church, I Pray on My Knees’

bollingSometimes the justifications people make for the things Donald Trump say are, um, quite something.

Earlier today, in response to Mitt Romney‘s anti-Trump speech, The Donald rather crassly said, “He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said ‘Mitt, drop to your knees.’ He would’ve dropped to his knees. He was begging.”

The crowd reaction was of the “Oh, snap” variety.

Now, it’s pretty clear what Trump was saying there. On Fox’s The Five today, Juan Williams was disturbed by “the sexual innuendo of what the man said to another man, it’s just insulting.”

But Eric Bolling, who had just been defending Trump from Romney minutes earlier by talking about how rich Trump is, mounted a defense of Trump’s language by saying, “When I go to church, I pray on my knees.”

As Williams continued to trash Trump’s “inappropriate language,” Bolling brought up the concept of praying for forgiveness and asked, “You haven’t heard that before?”

You can watch his remarks above, via Fox News, and Trump’s remarks above it, via CNN, to see for yourself if he was really talking about prayer there…
