The Duggars

The Duggars Are ‘Sinister’, Says TV Personality Montel Williams

Right now, the Duggars are in the spotlight, and it’s not for a good reason. People were shocked to learn that Josh Duggar, 27, the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, had molested four of the Duggar sisters. One sister, Jessa, has come forward to admit that Josh had inappropriately touched her, but instead of condemning him, she has decided to support him. It should be mentioned that these molestations happened when Josh was 14- and 15-years-old, and that the family knew about them for years.

Very early on, talk show host Montel Williams sounded off on his thoughts about this situation via his Twitter. Now, he’s decided to sound off once again. This time, he posted his thoughts about Michelle and Jim Bob’s controversial interview with Megyn Kelly.

Williams said the Duggars are “sinister” after watching their interview. He took to his Facebook page to air out his thoughts on the whole ordeal. “After watching the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar interview, I’m just stunned. They are in denial. Do I feel for their predicament as parents, of course, do I feel for their daughters, of course, I am the father of 3 daughters.”

He continued to raise questions about the 2002 investigative case that was opened surrounding Josh Duggar. “There is something very sinister beneath the surface. These are people who basically said they thought they could be as preachy as they wanted because the records were sealed, these are people who seemingly minimize what happened in their home and essentially sent a message to their daughters to smile, nod, and forgive.”

During the interview the 19 Kids and Counting stars seemed visibly upset that these allegations have come to light after years of it being kept secret. Michelle Duggar said that the four sisters that he molested, including Jessa, had no idea that he had done it because they were sleeping. She also said that because Josh had told them about what he had done, she was given hope about his intentions.

“I think we had one ray of hope in that Josh had a tender conscience and he was the one that came and shared on his own, even though the others really didn’t know anything of his wrongdoing.”

Jim Bob said in defense of Josh, “He said he was just curious about girls, and he had gone in and basically just touched them over their clothes while they were sleeping.”

Michelle then outlined how they told the girls what had happened while they were sleeping, “One by one, as we talked with them, none of them were aware of Josh’s wrong doings. It was more his heart, his intent. He knew that it was wrong. But they weren’t even aware. They were like, you know, it wasn’t — to them they didn’t probably even understand that it was an improper touch.”

As for Montel Williams, as stated, this isn’t the first time he’s analyzed the Duggars. As the Inquisitr reported, he posted his thoughts on Twitter.
