This time, it’s none other than religious right pundit Pat Robertson. And folks are absolutely dancing on the anti-gay Baptist minister’s grave.

    Iconic American televangelist Pat Robertson - who famously predicted an asteroid would hit the Earth after Donald Trump was reelected in 2020 - came out of retirement Monday to say Russian President Vladimir Putin was being 'compelled by God' to invade Ukraine. 'I think you can say, well, Putin's out of his mind,' Robertson, 91, said during a special appearance on his old show, the Christian Broadcasting Network's The 700 Club, of the Russian president's decision to invade the neighboring nation. 'And yes, maybe so,' the aging voice of conservative Christianity - who boasts an estimated net worth between $200m...

    On his television show "The 700 Club," Robertson delivered a monologue in which he challenged the president on a personal and political level. .."I think it's all over - I think the Electoral College has spoken," Robertson said. "And I don't think the Biden corruption has been fully brought to fruition." Robertson proceeded to thank Trump for his tenure, saying Trump had "done a marvelous job for the economy" but adding that he was "very erratic, and he's fired people and he's fought people and he's insulted people, and he keeps going down the line." "You know, with all his...

    Televangelist Pat Robertson said he thought the election was 'over' and President-elect Joe Biden would be the next president, as he encouraged President Donald Trump to abandon up his quest to overturn the election result. 'You've had your day and it's time to move on,' Robertson said, adding that he believed Trump was living in an 'alternate reality' where the president actually believed his lies. Robertson's comments come after he previously predicted Trump would win the 2020 presidential election hands down - and then an asteroid would hit earth. 'I think it's all over,' the conservative Christian commentator said. 'I...

    President Donald Trump's staunchest allies voiced outrage Monday after he suddenly declared that U.S. troops would allow Turkey to attack Syrian Kurds who have fought as U.S. allies for years to tamp down the Islamic State. The president later threatened to destroy the economy of Turkey, a NATO member, if it goes too far against the Kurds. But that did little to mollify concerns overseas or in Congress after Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw troops and get them out of the way of Turkish forces. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said it would be "disgraceful if we sat...

    Televangelist Pat Robertson has joined the chorus of conservative critics lambasting President Donald Trump’s decision to pull U.S. forces out of Northern Syria — endangering America’s Kurdish allies. Trump was slammed by many of his usual defenders on Monday after the White House announced the U.S. will allow for a Turkish military operation in the war-torn region. Trump argued in a statement that Turkey will assume responsibility for all ISIS fighters captured in the region, many of whom were detained by Kurdish forces allied with America. The Turkish government views these Kurdish militias as terrorists — despite the U.S. supporting...

    FULL TITLE: Conservative televangelist Pat Robertson says Alabama abortion law is 'extreme' and he believes the state 'has gone too far' Christian televangelist Pat Robertson has said that he believes Alabama's near total ban on abortions is 'extreme' and that the state has gone 'too far'. Robertson, who opposes abortion and hopes to see Roe v Wade overturned, made the remarks on Wednesday on The 700 Club, hours before Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed the new law. The Alabama law contains an exception for when the pregnancy creates a serious health risk for the woman, but not an exception for...

    "... in spite of his repeated criticism of Islamic terrorism, Islam, and the expressed knowledge of Saudi Arabia as a terror-fueled and terrorist -supporting state, Pat Robertson has outright said that America should not anger the Saudis for fear of jeopardizing US weapons sales to Saudi Arabia according to a report: “For those who are screaming blood for the Saudis — look, these people are key allies,” Robertson said. While he called the faith of the Wahabists — the hardline Islamist sect to which the Saudi Royal Family belongs — “obnoxious,” he urged viewers to remember that “we’ve got an...

While delivering remarks in Virginia, which is home to his Christian Broadcasting Network and where thousands are bracing for Florence's arrival, Robertson asked if his followers could invoke the same words from the passage to accomplish a similar result "if we are...

    Personal trauma can cloud one’s judgment, so we can to some degree forgive U.S. District Court Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow for urging members of Congress to do something to curb public criticism of federal judges. Lefkow’s husband and mother were recently killed by a deranged man who blamed her for a life turned sour. The attacks were not politically motivated. Yet somehow, Lefkow has drawn a link between the killings and recent criticisms of the federal judiciary by Republicans, in a way that unnecessarily inflames the debate. While we wouldn’t expect that members of Congress would rebuke a grieving widow...
