Right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau streamed a video on Periscope yesterday in which he blasted the “knucklehead bloggers” who dared to mock his claim that his prayer changed the course of Hurricane Irma and suggested that the storm didn’t damage any of President Trump’s properties in Florida because he is protected by God.
“I’ve got these knucklehead bloggers that watch me and always make fun of me,” he said. “They were crazy last week over the hurricane. They kept saying, ‘He thinks his prayers with 5,000 people influenced the direction of the hurricane.’ Well, I’ll tell you what, I believe our prayers, along with everybody else’s, did influence the direction of the hurricane.”
Responding to Bill Maher’s joke that the fact that Trump’s properties made it through the hurricane without damage is proof that there is no God, Wallnau declared that “of course nothing happened to Donald Trump’s property, that was a demonic storm … The Lord didn’t send it, the devil is loosing chaos in America.”
Wallnau then called on conservative Christians to “step up” and use their godly authority to defeat the “spirit of Antichrist” that is manifesting through “the stupid leftists” in the form of their “irrational” opposition to Trump.
