Evangelical pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has a real fondness for making absurd statements, and this includes last week when he claimed President Trump was being too nice to Democrats and that he “needs to get meaner.”
Now he’s back at it again, this time claiming that even though Trump is a serial adulterer, it was understandable that Christians supported him because “Clinton is a lesbian.”

Howard-Browne, is about as homophobic as you get and is also a huge conspiracy theorist who has bizarrely claimed (without any credible evidence) that the U.S. is building Nazi-style gas chambers. He’s a charlatan of the worst stripe who likes to go full bombast, having excoriated Democrats last week by saying this:
“I’m a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ and we are whipping butt and taking names. If you don’t like that, that’s fine but I stand 100 percent with the president of the United States … To all the trolls out there, keep screaming, keep wailing, keep doing whatever you want to do. You’ve lost. You have lost.”
It’s difficult to believe that anyone even takes this guy seriously. The whole “Hillary Clinton is a lesbian,” has been a right-wing Christian talking point for which there’s never been any credible evidence, but Howard-Browne has a problem with logic because he basically never uses any. By the way, Clinton pretty well put that old cliche out of its misery in a recent appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show.
That didn’t prevent Howard-Browne from waxing ridiculous.
“People say that the president likes women, I said ‘so does Hillary.”
What’s really evident here is that Howard-Browne is allergic to facts.
