You’ll never believe this: Pat Robertson was wrong about something.
Okay, that’s not news, but it’s entertaining as hell to watch the day after House Speaker Paul Ryan and Donald Trump failed miserably in their quest to make 24 million people suffer more so that rich people could get even richer.
On Thursday, Robertson told his viewers on The 700 Club that the American Health Care Act was definitely going to pass and “the Lord was going to give Trump victory.”
“It’s going to go through the Senate, and we’re all going to rejoice that we’re going to pay less on health care,” he said, despite the fact that if enacted, most people would see their premiums skyrocket.
Robertson said that “he knew that the Lord was going to give Trump victory” and that God is using the president to do great things.
“They’re going to get it,” he said. “They’re going to give it to the president. Mark my word: it will pass. They will get those extra votes. It will go through. They’re going to work together to give us tremendous health care.”
I guess the Lord decided to save the lives of poor people instead…
Will Robertson apologize for lying? Will he admit he was wrong? I doubt it. He’s hoping that viewers will just forget what he said, which shouldn’t be hard, given his typical audience. Good thing there’s video evidence.
