“God, save us!”: Twitter responds to Jerry Falwell Jr.’s x-rated photos scandal

Late yesterday it was reported that Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, did the world a huge favor when he helped prevent the release of x-rated photos of antigay activist Jerry Falwell Jr. about three years ago.

According to Reuters, in the months before Falwell endorsed Trump’s presidential bid in 2016, the evangelical leader contacted Cohen seeking help regarding an “embarrassing personal matter.”

Reuters reports:

Falwell, president of Liberty University, one of the world’s largest Christian universities, said someone had come into possession of what Cohen described as racy “personal” photographs — the sort that would typically be kept “between husband and wife.”

Cohen later told actor Tom Arnold about the photographs, who shared a recording of their conversation with The Washington Post yesterday.

In the recording, Cohen is heard saying, “There’s a bunch of photographs–you know, personal photographs–that somehow, the guy ended up getting.”

Cohen goes on to say that the man was demanding cash from the Falwells in exchange for the photos being destroyed.

“I actually have one of the photos,” Cohen said. “It’s terrible.”

Naturally, this has people feeling all sorts of ways. From complete shock (Jerry Falwell has sex?!) to utter horror (Please, God, don’t let us ever see those photos!), the whole world seems to have an opinion on the matter.

And now, the responses…

But they don’t stop there…
