Jerry Bowyer: Larry Kudlow the God Question
Larry Kudlow has been subject to unending attacks from the mainstream media since being announced as Trump’s chief economic advisor. Kudlow is a devout Catholic who credits God for getting him through his years of substance abuse. On CNBC, Kudlow said that, whatever might happen during his tenure as Trump’s advisor, it would be the will of God. This sentiment isn’t actually controversial, but on their MSNBC show, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle found it worthy of incredulous laughter and snide sarcasm. Velshi used to work for Al Jazeera—if someone there had said inshallah (God’s will) no one at MSNBC would have dreamed of treating them with such contempt! Kudlow is a fine conservative economist and will serve the president well. And his faith should be off limits.
