Paula White certainly knows her audience. She knows they’ll believe any claim, no matter how absurd. In fact, the more absurd the better. She told the congregation at another megachurch that God took her up to the throne of heaven and anointed her with a mantle to minister to Trump in the White House.
White, a prosperity gospel preacher and current White House aide, claimed that a weight suddenly fell upon her that pushed her to the floor, at which point her spirit ascended to Heaven.
“I literally went to the Throne Room of God,” she said. “There was a mist that was coming off the water, and I went to the throne of God, and I didn’t see God’s face clearly, but I saw the face of God … I knew it was the face of God.”
“He put a mantle [on me] and it was a very distinct mantle,” White continued. “There was a mantle, and I saw it very distinctly, the color was like a goldish, a yellowish goldish … and then I saw the Earth for a moment, and [God] brought me back, and he put me in certain places, one being the White House, one being certain continents.”
“I didn’t come out of that really until the next morning,” White reported.
And of course they lapped it up like kittens to milk.
