People Are So Desperate to Remove Donald Trump From Office That They’re Resorting To Witchcraft

When singer Lana Del Rey tweeted this odd message on Thursday, it looked like a cryptic promotion for a future album.

If only.

It turns out she was talking about how witchcraft would remove Donald Trump from office.


Rolling Stone explains:

Occultists noted that, on those four dates, practitioners of witchcraft would congregate for a mass ritual that would [sic] with the hope that their efforts resulted in Donald Trump’s removal from the Oval Office.

As if on cue, a group of Catholics is already planning to pray to counter the witchcraft. Because two wrongs make a right.

What’s really sad is that part of me wants to wish Lana Del Rey well because it’s not like this Republican-dominated Congress is any more reliable…

But midnight on February 24th has come and gone. Trump is still in office. Somehow the magic spells, and eyes of newt, and other forms of wacky delusional bullshit didn’t have an effect. Who could possibly have seen that coming?
