So if you’d like to watch one shameless huckster call another shameless huckster’s success “the greatest miracle I have ever seen,” here you go:
“All the wise men said, ‘No, it won’t happen,’” Bakker said. “They had the numbers. They said it can’t [happen.] Almost everybody around me was giving up. The prophets were even giving up because they were showing the odds and the number and they said the numbers aren’t there. All the polls were wrong! All, all the polls were wrong and the prophets were right! God was right!”
Bad polling can always be cured with better polling, but dumb luck is a crapshoot in which the odds never improve.
Kyle Mantyla at Right Wing Watch asks the logical question: “Now that Trump has saved America, does that mean Bakker can stop relentlessly pushing the sale of his End Times survivalist food buckets?”
You know he won’t. Even when times are good for you, you can always sell fear.
