Is the Holy Spirit Orange? Jim Bakker and Donald Trump

Is the Holy Spirit Orange? Jim Bakker and Donald Trump February 11, 2019

Sometimes news articles pop up where you have to wonder exactly what is the content of the koolaide someone in Evangelicalism is drinking. Because what’s coming out of their own mouths is so irrational. Example: Jim Bakker is now saying that president Donald Trump’s skin tones are caused by the flow of the Holy Spirit through him, not the cheap orange spray tan he oh so obviously gets. Is it that ‘Lying for the Lord’ so many good Evangelicals believe in?

So those glowing dead white circles around his eyes are what? Jesus touched him?  Holy Spirit missed spots??? What, what?

Fake bake, and not even good or costly fake bake. Just the cheapest stuff you can have a stranger spray on your nekkid body.

Jim Bakker is either foolish, a craven liar or devoid of all brain power.

  • Kit Hadley-Day

    how can a man that rich and that vain and thin skinned bare to walk around in a spray tan that bad? the mind boggles

  • johnsoncatman

    Jim Bakker is either foolish, a craven liar or devoid of all brain power.

    Why not all three?

  • Saraquill

    Why would a devout Christian equate their diety with cheap spray tan?

  • Saraquill

    Terrible to nonexistent judgement.

  • wannabe

    I note that Jim Bakker is himself not orange. Where’s your holy spirit, Rev. Bakker?

  • Mimc

    He doesn’t have good taste. Have you seen the pictures of his home? He’s all about gaudy stuff.

  • SAO

    I think “God wanted Donald Trump to be president and that’s why he’s here” is a perfect example of the way the marriage of faith and politics has totally debased religion. How can anyone reconcile what the bible says about Jesus with Trump’s personal and presidential actions.

    Frankly, anyone who can say something like Huckabee-Sanders said is, IMHO, someone who is so fundamentally corrupted that she’s the poster child for atheism.

  • Tawreos

    Is Jim Bakker saying that the Holy Spirit is fake and tacky, or has he been idolizing Trump for so long that he thinks that looks like a real tan? Do I have the holy spirit flowing through me after a week at the beach? Is the holy spirit what gives tanning booths their magical tanning powers? When they proclaim nonsense it leaves them so open to so many questions.

  • Nea

    The same reason a man that rich and vain wears ill-fitting suits and too-long ties he holds together with scotch tape instead of the label or the classic method of showing off male wealth – a tie pin. The same reason he served “All-American My Favorite Food” junk to athletes instead of food from his own restaurants down the street:

    He thinks that is class. He thinks that is good. He thinks that is impressive.

  • Kit Hadley-Day

    a shining example of the pitfalls of surrounding yourself with yes men and refusing to listen to anyone

  • Knitting Cat Lady

    Let’s not forget that weird hair piece.

    Honestly. It’s almost as if Trump has heard about certain things being stylish and classy but has only seen out of focus pictures of them. So he has no clue what they actually look like and is too proud and arrogant to listen to any kind of advice.

  • Mel

    I’m assuming Bakker and most other televangelists listen to the makeup artists who specialize in TV and movie makeup. Trump’s orange face is pretty classic in terms of picking colors that look decent under regular lighting but change colors under the glare of production lighting. Ditto for the white-grey line between his face makeup and hair; he wouldn’t let the makeup artist mix the line into his ‘hair’. The white eyes – that’s what happen when you have a guy who can’t suck it up and deal with having makeup next to his eyes. (Trying to apply eye-makeup to guys who hadn’t lost the flinch reflex yet is what I remember most from my high school musical productions….)

    No, my biggest question is his hair. What IS it? Cotton candy with matte-shellac on top? Plugs from Fabio once Fabio was going grey?

  • AFo

    Watching them jump through hoops to try and convince themselves and everyone around them that this man is not the antithesis of everything they claim to believe in is like watching the Three Stooges try to change a light bulb.

  • frostysnowman

    Bleh – now I can’t stop thinking about Trump standing nekkid in a spray tan booth.

  • frostysnowman

    Agree – all of the above.

  • Nea

    Apparently what T really believes in is the Power of Positive Thinking. Seriously. So he’s never going to entertain the concept that he may not be wrong for a nanosecond, lest the whole house of cards come down.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    I think it’s howler monkey belly hair.

  • Delilah Hart

    Why don’t they use Cheez-Its and grape Kool-Aid in the holy communion?

  • smrnda

    If evangelicals had a realpolitik attitude towards the president, that would be one thing. But at this point, they’re falling over him like he’s the second coming of Jesus, where there’s nothing about the man down to his spray on tan that isn’t a ‘sign of god’s favor.’

  • I read somewhere that one attempt to correct his baldness went horribly wrong, and a flap graft was necessary to close his scalp. Instead of balding, they stretched our what he had left. If it was a free tissue flap graft, I don’t want to know where they harvested as the donor site.

  • I think this is a spoof quasi news site, but it’s not far from the hairy monkey’s arse stuff that’s real, how can you tell? They don’t cry “Wolf!” They cry for help!

  • Vikiirna

    This story originated from the “The Business Standard” (The BS) for short — a self-proclaimed satire site.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders did say what is quoted there and the WH also made that statement so it’s not entirely made up. Sounded very much like something Bakker might say mixed with the statements I’d already heard. I got fooled.

  • therealcie

    Ah yes, Jim Bakker, that bastion of wisdom. I surely put my trust in him.
