Trump-loving evangelical swindler says coronavirus can be easily cured with 'silver solution'
Jim Bakker, the infamous televangelist who was convicted in 1989 on 23 counts of fraud and one count of conspiracy, is back selling snake oil to the rubes.
The Jesus-‘n’-bulk-pancake-mix salesman, who recently said supporting Trump “is a test whether you’re even saved” and claimed “the demons of hell were impeaching the president as I was taping this show recently,” thinks the coronavirus that’s rampaging the globe as we speak can be eliminated in 12 hours. And, coincidentally, the cure happens to be the thing he’s selling on his show and website right now.
BAKKER: “This influenza that is now circling the globe, you’re saying that Silver Solution would be effective.”
NATUROPATH SHERRILL SELLMAN: “Well let’s say it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the coronavirus, but it’s been tested on other strains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours — totally eliminate it, kills it, deactivates it. And then it boosts your immune system so then you can support the recovery, because when you kill the virus then the immune system comes into action to clear it out. So you want a vibrant immune system as well as an ability to deactivate these viruses.”
End-times pancake mix, magical silver solution, Trump. They’re all in the same genus. And carnies gonna carnie. What can you say?
I just hope Donald Trump doesn’t see this video or the Washington Monument will be filled to the rafters with this crap by noon on Sunday.
He should be cautious, though, because too much colloidal silver eventually turned this dude blue:
If Trump turns blue and then spray-tans, he’ll spend all day, every day looking like a tailgater at a Denver Broncos game.
Wait, that might be fun. Someone send Trump some of this stuff and tell him it’s the only way to truly protect him.
Because I ♥ my readers, my latest e-book Dear Pr*sident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump, will be on sale for a redonkulous 99 cents starting on Valentine’s Day. It shoots up to (a still-redonkulous) $1.99 three days later, and then back to regular price (a moderately redonkulous $2.99) on February 21. Meanwhile, you can find all my acclaimed Trump-trashing treatises at Amazon. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief.
