Unhinged anti-gay bigot Scott Lively did an interview with Michelangelo Signorile on his radio show recently and was quite adamant that he had never called President Obama the Antichrist. Right up until Signorile played audio of him saying precisely that.
Asked about his comments on a radio program in which he suggested President Obama is the “anti-Christ,” Lively laughed and denied saying anything of the kind.
“I did not say that Obama is the anti-Christ,” he flatly replied. But then when the tape was played for him, in which Lively talks of the anti-Christ being the leader of the “largest superpower in the world,” he revised his answer.
“No, no — that’s Obama,” he admitted, adding, “but the context of that show was laying out a hypothetical situation.”
Uh, Scott…ANY discussion of the Antichrist is laying out a hypothetical situation. That is not an excuse for you lying and claiming you didn’t say what you obviously said. Here’s the audio:
