That's the same guy I posted about a while back on his lavish life and private jet. He promise cures for cancer and lupus and more. He is one of the televangelists who tells people to donate and pray instead of going to the doctor, because cancer and all that are nothing but the works of Satan. I would find it funny if they weren't ruining people's lives.

>>damn_it_bill_gates

True story from a couple weeks ago. A physician friend is (reading between the lines) flirting with a woman and she asks which vaccine she she get. He says, "It doesn't really matter, as long as it's not the one with the chip."

She says, "Oh, which one is that?"

He says, "The one from QAnon."

She says, "Oh, I haven't heard of that brand."

He decides they are not likely to hit it off long term and moves on from the conversation.
