Evangelical Snake Oil Salesman Calls Hillary Clinton The AntiChrist

And all the while, Jim Bakker nodded.

With Trump at the top of the Republican ticket, evangelicals are really having to step up the rhetoric in order to cover their candidate's deficiencies. A few are stepping up to the task.

Snake oil salesmen Don and Mary Colbert appeared on Jim Bakker's television show to warn viewers about Hillary Clinton and her inheritance of President Obama's title as the antiChrist.

"That spirit of Antichrist is majorly on one of these candidates, and that’s Hillary Clinton," warned Colbert. "Jesus even said there will be many Antichrists in the world; well that spirit of Antichrist is on our president right now. So as Christians, we have got to turn out and vote. If we don’t turn out and vote, we are electing Hillary Clinton."

I don't know how many viewers Bakker has these days, but I'm pretty confident that it's not a huge number. It's just interesting to me how many of these televangelists feel the need to tell their acolytes how terrible the opposition is, as opposed to speaking well of their own candidate.
