Televangelist Jim Bakker suggests that if you want to survive the end of days, the best thing you could do is buy one of his cabins in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. And while you’re at it, be sure to pick up six 28-ounce “Extreme Survival Warfare” water bottles for $150.

Bakker, 78, made comments promoting his Morningside church community alongside his co-host and wife, Lori, on an episode of “The Jim Bakker Show,” which aired Tuesday. The show is filmed there, near Branson.

Bakker was known for hosting the evangelical Christian TV program “The PTL Club” in the ’70s and ’80s — up until 1987 when his empire came crashing down amid a sex scandal and charges of fraud.

Boy that is some coincidence, don’t you think? 

I mean it’s almost like this proven charlatan had pulled these “facts” right out of his ass or something. 

But do you know what? It will totally work for some people. 

The same people who show up at Trump rallies and chant “Drain the swamp!” and believe firmly in their hearts that all of the news media around the world are involved in a vast Left Wing conspiracy to bring down their hero.

I used to watch the PTL club, the 700 Club, and Jimmy Swaggert back in the 80’s and just laugh my ass off at how obviously they were lying and manipulating their congregations. 

It never really dawned on me then that this same technique could be used to sweep somebody into the White House.
