Falwell described the woman in the photo as his “wife’s assistant.” On his Instagram account, Falwell tagged a picture of the woman as Kathleen Stone, who lists on her Facebook account that she works for Liberty University. A university spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“She’s a sweetheart and I should never have put it up and embarrassed her,” Falwell said.

Falwell described the scene leading up to the photo. “She’s pregnant so she couldn’t get her — she couldn’t get her pants up,” he said. “And I was like, trying to like — my — I had on pair of jeans that I hadn’t worn in a long time so I couldn’t get mine zipped either. And so — and so — I just put my belly — I just put my belly out like hers.”

The son a great leader (and I am not saying you have to agree Falwell was great, but he certainly led a large movement so in that sense he is great) is often squirrelly. That's why we avoid hereditary leadership.

He also said the liquid in his glass was just dyed water to make it look like alcohol... Sure. Why not? We all do that.

Hopefully, Liberty can now begin to shed the mess that is Jerry Falwell, Jr. and move forward to respectability.
