Fraud For Jesus: Televangelist Jim Bakker claims his magic “Silver Solution” will kill the coronavirus within 12 hours.
Bakker, the disgraced and infamous Trump-loving televangelist who spent time in prison after bilking his followers out of $158 million, made the claim that his magic “Silver Solution” would cure the coronavirus within 12 hours while discussing the product with Dr. Sherrill Sellman, a supposed naturopath, on his television program earlier this week:

BAKKER: This influenza, that is now circling the globe, you’re saying that Silver Solution would be effective?
SELLMAN: Well, let’s say it hasn’t been testing on this strain of the coronavirus, but it’s been testing on other strains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours. Totally eliminates it. Kills it. Deactivates it. And then it boosts your immune system, so then you can support the recovery, ’cause when you kill the virus then your immune system comes into action to clear it out. So you want a vibrant immune system as well as an ability to deactivate these viruses.
In addition to curing the coronavirus, Bakker also claims that his magic “Silver Solution” will cure sexually transmitted diseases. Reporting on the story, Hemant Mehta at Friendly Atheist notes:
But please don’t mock the corrupt, Trump-loving televangelist. Previously Bakker warned that “mean people” who mock him will be punished by God. That’s right, Jim Bakker says if you mock Jim Bakker, God’s going to punish you!
For well over a year now, televangelist Jim Bakker has been selling a “Silver Solution” that he claims gets rid of “all venereal diseases.”
Indeed, Bakker has demonstrated a keen concern about people mocking him or God. Previously the televangelist declared that the victims of the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England “literally invited” the attack by mocking God.
Bakker is also a big Trump supporter, and recently joined a whole host of conservative Christians warning that there would be violence, insurrection, and civil war if President Donald Trump is impeached.
Bottom line: Televangelist Jim Bakker believes he is a prophet of God, and tells his television audience that his magic “Silver Solution” will kill the coronavirus within 12 hours.
