The Reverend Jerry Falwell Jr was president of Liberty University, one of the largest Christian universities in the world.
He was the first evangelical leader to back Donald Trump for US President in 2015.
He had so much sway that many Christian leaders followed him in throwing their support behind Trump – a man who had been married three times, had numerous adulterous affairs and had broken most if not all 10 commandments.
But then rumours started to circulate about a strange goings on between Falwell, his wife Becki and a pool cleaner, Giancarlo Granda, whom they met at a hotel.
Last week Granda came out to confirm that he had had a years-long affair with Becki and that Falwell used to sit in the corner and watch them having sex.
Granda had evidence of text messages and video calls where Becki was naked.
Falwell has been forced to resign from Liberty University.
One joker said that Falwell had quit to “spend more time watching his family.”
