On Wednesday morning’s 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robinson lamented over Matt Lauer’s firing for sexual misconduct, afraid that “terrific” men are having their careers ruined over “standard stuff.”
The Christian news host shared a story about how a woman who worked for his Christian Broadcasting Network said that when she worked in Hollywood, female employees were expected to provide sexual favors for stars and network executives. To Robertson, this seems to mean that women shouldn’t complain.

“That was standard stuff,” Robertson said. “Now it’s looked on as shocking but, folks, it’s been happening a long time, and nobody said anything about it. Now they’re finally wising up, but I just hate to see some of these men’s careers—I mean, guys like Charlie Rose, these are terrific people, and I hate to see it happen.”
“These guys don’t have a trial, either,” he added. “They don’t have the rules of evidence to force these accusers to come forward with the preponderance of evidence is what you get in a trial. You don’t have that now, so these people’s careers are being ruined, and we just hope and pray that these women are telling the truth.”
He then tried to defend Roy Moore, using the Trump line “He denies it.” However, when it comes to Harvey Weinstein, the sexual harassment was “so blatant.”
