Televangelist Pat Robertson said today that the political crisis in Venezuela would never have materialized if the U.S. had only taken his advice about assassinating late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.
Today, however, he alleged that he was right all along about killing Chavez: “I warned on this program a couple of years ago and was pilloried across the nation for suggesting we ought to take out Chavez. My words have come true. Chavez died of cancer but nevertheless we should’ve hurried his demise a little bit along; it wouldn’t have been the problem we got now.”
Robertson then asked viewers to pray about the situation.
