Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, former evangelist Frank Schaeffer launched into a righteous rant and accused Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins of being a “racist” over comments he made to Politico calling former President Barack Obama a “bully” who needs to be punched.

Earlier in the week, Perkins told Politico that he was glad to see Trump pushing back at Obama and the “leftists,” saying, Evangelical Christians “were tired of being kicked around by Barack Obama and his leftists. And I think they are finally glad that there’s somebody on the playground that is willing to punch the bully.”

“You know, you only have two cheeks,” Perkins added. “Christianity is not all about being a welcome mat which people can just stomp their feet on.”

Addressing the Perkins interview, host Reid claimed, “What we’re seeing is people on the religious right who want someone to punch a bully, the bully being Barack Obama apparently.”

“I guess Barack Obama was a bully because he was black,” Schaeffer responded. “You have to remember that everything that has happened since his presidency is a reaction by a core group of white voters. Let’s remember, when we talk about evangelicals, in 1958, Jerry Falwell Sr. was denouncing integration and started a white private school academy to get around the new rulings from the courts.”
