Jerry Falwell Jr., president of the evangelical Liberty University, tweeted the image after a meeting of evangelical leaders and social conservatives with Trump in New York.
Honored to introduce @realDonaldTrump at religious leader summit in NYC today! He did incredible job! @beckifalwell pic.twitter.com/e2eBSbQwb0— J L Falwell (@JerryJrFalwell) June 21, 2016
From The Hill:
Falwell faced mockery after social media users pointed out the framed 1990 Playboy Magazine cover hanging on the wall behind them.
He responded by calling those critical of him "hypocrites."
Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), a vocal critic of Trump, also weighed in.
