Robertson’s explanation for the universal outrage expressed at his widely viewed and verified comments was to blame PFAWF saying, “People for the American Way take down every word, they twist it, pass it on to a friend at the [Associated Press] and away it goes.”
Attempting to defend himself, Robertson read from the transcript of the Jan 5 program saying, “Sharon was a very likeable person and I am sad to see him in this condition.” He continued, “And then I quoted from the prophet Joel. But I never once said that God did this to [Sharon], I did not say that, it is not in this transcript.”
