Televangelist Jim Bakker, who knows a thing or two about scandals that result in prison sentences, is trying to prepare his base for whenever Donald Trump is found guilty of wrongdoing.
Because Trump can do no wrong in their eyes, and any impeachment proceedings would obviously be invalid from the get-go, Bakker is setting the stage for a Christian-led riot.
“Trump is not crazy,” Bakker bellowed. “They want him to be crazy because they want to impeach him. There is nothing they can impeach him over because this thing with the collusion with Russia they can’t prove, but they want to say this man is crazy. They’re trying to get doctors to say the president is crazy.”
“I’ll tell you what,” he continued. “If they go through with that, there will be a riot in the United States of America and you’re going to find little old ladies rioting, you’re going to find the church people out rioting because they’re not going to take it any more. This is stupid and insanity what is going on in our country right now.”
Christians: They won’t riot over Trump’s bragging about harassing women, or his callous treatment of war widows, or his blissful ignorance on matters of national security, or the families he’s tearing apart via deportation… but the potential impeachment of an incompetent president who broke U.S. laws? That’s apparently worth taking a stand for.
