Pat Robertson Excuses David Petraeus Affair Because 'He's a Man': VIDEO


On yesterday's The 700 Club, Pat Robertson brought up the Petraeus scandal, appearing to excuse Petraeus' extramarital affair because, well, he's a man, Right Wing Watch reports:

He described Broadwell as an “extremely good-looking woman” who is a “marathon runner, she’d run Iron Man triathlons and so she’s out running with him, and she's writing a biography,” and Petraeus simply couldn’t help himself: “The man’s off in a foreign land and he’s lonely and here’s a good-looking lady throwing herself at him. He’s a man.”

  1. Robertson is protecting Patraeus b/c Patraeus has been dutifully pushing xianity on the Armed Forces for years.

  2. How come I can ALWAYS watch stories about people saying hateful, hypocritical, or stupid statements on these links but I can never watch links from Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert; those links say unavailable in your country...WTF? I didn't know the internet had borders.

    This man is dangerous. It's a shame that in his long life he never had the opportunity to meet DIFFERENT people than white Christians. What a shame. Once this man passes away he will always be remembered in history as an hateful, evil old man. Too bad.

  3. @snowisfun - your syntax and grammar are atrocious. I don't think you can really say you speak English if you can't write it properly.

  4. He's doing the Christian forgiveness thing. We are all sinners.

    I could have sworn Robertson died a few years ago. Maybe his corpse is being used like Weekend at Bernies.

  5. It may be a cliche, actually it is a cliche, but some village in the Ukraine wants its idiot back.

  6. Sexist!! Is this part of preserving the scantity of marriage that he talks about so much?

  8. Philip, I call him METHEW Wayne Shepard because of his drug junkyism of mixing Methamphetamines or Ecstasy with antidepressants. BTW, currently listening to Die Young by Ke$ha as I write here.

    No haven't been to Ireland though have been to Great Britain or U.K. 7 times again-1978,1981,1984,1999,2001,2003 & 2005-have family in U.K. who has been to Ireland. With Irish people, former Presidential candidates Patrick J. Buchanan and R.J. Santorum (1/2 Italian/1/2 Irish) are both good Irish Catholics while Bill O'Reilly of Fox News who is Libertarian is a bad Catholic and 1970s musician Don Henley (Donald Hugh Henley) of Shiloh and Eagles while Irish is not Catholic.

    But what I want to know is why in years I've posted here are you homos mean to me:( In fact, Towleroad posters are often mean. Why can't you be nice instead of mean? I see something wrong with gay/lesbian sexual behaviors and believe transexuals are worse than queers as transexuals are mutilated. But what do you think of Big Island Chronicles Squaw Tiffany Edwards Hunt who smokes drugs and who has farted & shitted in front of her 2 kids-her kids must get tired of smelling her gases.

  9. Now if Petraus' lover had been a man then they would both be going straight to hell.

  10. Pat - we can excuse you, as well. You're an idiot.

  11. Guys, I can't believe I'm the first person to make this point. I realize that Pat Robertson has said few sane things in his life, but this may be one of them. And frankly, it's the same point that Dan Savage has been making for years: humans are not built for monogamy. It's a difficult choice that we make if we choose to be in a monogamous relationship. Again, this may be the first time -- in a long time -- that Pat Robertson makes a good point. Let's give him credit where credit is due.

  12. @ SNOWISFUN :

    I have news for you; all, yes all, we Irish Catholics are no longer Catholic.
    We are all, yes all, now out and gay and very proud to have kicked out the phony priests, with their superstitious uses and we have expelled the Vatican Ambassador.
    Now we don't listen to anything that unreconstructed little Hitler Youth, Ratzinger, has to say.

    As for anyone being mean, have you listened to Ratzinger talk about us ?
    Have you listened to Pat Robertson talk about us ? Now that's mean.

    And Bill O'Reilly and Hannity bring shame on us; they are just "paddywhackery" Irish....... dressed up loud mouthed clowns.

    And going to the UK a million times does not count !!!!!

  13. I totally agree, we should IGNORE snowisfun, anyway, I thought the bible said thou shall not cheat on thou spouse especially if you are married and heterosexual....OMG...Robertson is going to hell for this...how can we take Robertson seriously when he makes these kind of hypocritical and ridiculous statements??!!?

    Posted by: Bernie | Nov 14, 2012 7:28:31 PM

  14. Advocating adultery ... seriously?
    Further proof that that LUNATIC Robertson is NOT a Christian.

  15. She's writing a biography,” and Petraeus simply couldn’t help himself:

  16. I'd say Robertson is really sticking his neck out on this one, but he appears not to have one.

  17. Again, homosexual and lesbian sexual conduct compares to drug junkyism and DRUGS ARE GAY like METHEW Wayne Shepard the Ecstasy junky. Homosexual/lesbian groups are predictably usu. apologists for Harvey B. Milk the homosexual statutory rapist who in 1964 committed homosexual statutory rape on a 16 year old boy for which he wasn't prosecuted for-that boy committed suicide in 1980 when he was 33. As I see that case, Dan (DJ) White by shooting and killing Harvey Milk in 1978 did what the California legal system failed to do to Harvey B. Milk in 1964. Harvey Milk in 1978 should've been a felon and lost his right to vote. Harvey Bernard Milk is a case of where we sometimes need gay bashings as Harvey Milk n 1964 commits homosexual statutory rape on 16 year old boy and 14 years later, Harvey B. Milk gets shot & killed. Harvey B. Milk also boasted about having sex in public parks (indecency w/o getting arreste by police.

  18. Snowisfun you're a troll. You need to go back under the bridge.

    Posted by: Joseph Singer | Nov 15, 2012 7:01:55 AM

  19. Joseph Singer must smoke same drugs that homos METHEW Wayne Shepard and Elton Portatoilet John used. Harvey B. Milk is a homolester of 16 year old boys, but most gay/lesbian groups are apologists for this homo statutory rapist.

  20. Hmm, I think someone has been going to church in Topeka. (westboro).

    Snowiscrazy, your blather sounds exactly like the Phelps clan drivel.

    Go away now.

  21. @MARY It's OK. You can use the "q-word". I prefer it to "gay" anyway. BTW, I like the idea of, uh, "Pat Robertson's Greatest Hits". I've been following the guy for a few decades and gathered quite a few of his, um, "words of knowledge" (his description, not mine).

    Posted by: jamal49 | Nov 15, 2012 12:14:22 PM

  22. At least we know now that Pat doesn't believe all that Biblical b*ull s*it. After all the "Holy Bible" calls for adulterers to be stoned to death. That Yahweh is such a sweetheart!

    2 observations:

    The 'snow' you call yourself must be a a cocaine reference?

    You are clearly obsessed with sh*t and meth.

    Methew is no such person.

  24. forgive me - that was 3 observations.

  25. But METHEW Wayne Shepard is who I call him because he mixed Ecstasy with antidepressants. His killing by 2 men in October 1998 is minor topic. METHEW Wayne Shepard chose Univ. of Wyoming out of all the colleges he could get into but then Methew Wayne Shepard insulted the college and Laramie. METHEW Wayne Shepard before October 1998 was described by many including friends as moody, obnoxious and selfish who even rudely cut in line in front of retirees. In August 1998, Methew Wayne Shepard falsely accused a Cody man of a crime the Cody man was innocent of. Excuses made by his mom is that METHEW Wayne Shepard had depression, PTSD and so on.

    But after Methew Wayne Shepard got killed by 2 men in October 1998, he becomes a martyr with people loving him though he was a selfish, obnoxious, rude person who only thought about himself. Yes, his killing is another topic. But honestly, METHEW Wayne Shepard mistreated others such as his false accusation and in the end, he was mistreated by being killed by 2 men. BTW, I'm not a friend, lawyer or family member for his killers but just telling the bad truths about METHEW Wayne Shepard which gets minor talk in media.
