In this clip, we bring you Pat Robertson of the 700 Club, prophesizing as to what he thinks could happen in the coming months...

He starts by listing bad things: war, a revolution (a Bernie reference?), a hideous earthquake (a Chris Christie reference?), a meteor strike. Then he dives into the serious stuff, his true belief, the message that maybe God is sending him:

"The way things are going, from what I have seen, from past elections, it looks like it is going to be a blow out for Trump...it is just amazing...how does [Hillary Clinton] reinvent herself?...she is not really coming through as authentic...."

Then he drifts into references than only people over the age of 60 understand...Reagan vs Mondale and the epic drama of that election.

"My word...they said he's an old man...I think Mondale only won one state...and so you never know"

Ok, Pat. Let's get back to 2016. Focus.

"Trump is scoring points with blue collar workers, the core of the Democratic party, the labor union..."

Uh huh. I think you means he is scoring points with racists, white nationalists and the KKK. Then he gets asked about the Vice President's importance and he actually says something I can get on board with:

"I don't think the VP makes that much of a difference....if he puts some swami in as VP they would think he's crazy"

Yes, he said Swami, which mean male Hindu religious teachers. Wait, has Trump come out against Hindu people yet (furiously flipping through notepad with filled lists of people Trump has bashed). NOPE! Adding a new entry!

Pat, retire.

Can you help us out?
