When last we checked in with Trump “spiritual advisor” and honorary Righteous Gemstones character Paula White, the prosperity gospel peddler was calling for an end to all “satanic pregnancies, an absolutely normal thing to do. Now, as Trump tries to discredit an election via his Twitter account, she’s doing her part to keep her boss in office by calling upon “angelic reinforcements” from Africa and South America (?). Maybe these celestial beings can convince states to stop counting (or is it keep counting?).

Like most charismatic preachers, White aims to give legitimacy to her nonsense by repeating it over and over (and over and over) with a rhythmic cadence and a sprinkling of tongues that may or not be holy in nature. Is it effective as prayer? Absolutely not. Does it sound sick as hell with a beat beneath it? You tell us.

This is just one of many Paula White remixes to surface online in the last 12 hours, making it a worthy successor to religious grifter Kenneth Copeland’s April coronavirus rant, which spawned a slew of remixes of its own.
