Jim Bakker Selling Snake Oil Again

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 9, 2020

         DISGRACED TV EVANGELIST JIM BAKKER IS AT IT AGAIN. THIS TIME HE’S SELLING WHAT HE SUGGESTS IS A CURE FOR THE CORONAVIRUS AND OTHER AILMENTS. IN THE DAYS OF THE COVERED WAGON THEY CALLED THIS “SNAKE OIL” AND IT WAS USUALLY SOLD IN BOTTLES CONTAINING A SOLUTION MIXED IN A BATHTUB.

         THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW YORK HAS WRITTEN BAKKER, ACCUSING HIM OF FALSE ADVERTISING. ON HIS RECENT TV SHOW, BAKKER AND GUESTS TALKED ABOUT HIS SILVER SOLUTIONS AS A POSSIBLE CURE FOR CORONAVIRUS. AN AD MOVED ACROSS THE SCREEN OFFERING TWO TUBES OF THE STUFF FOR $80. IF YOU WANTED THE LIQUID VARITY, THAT WILL SET YOU BACK $125.

         BAKKER HAS LEARNED NOTHING FROM THE PTL SCANDAL OF THE 1980’S WHEN HE WENT TO PRISON FOR SELLING CONDOS MORE THAN ONCE TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE. WHEN HE GOT OUT OF PRISON I INVITED HIM TO MY HOUSE AND TOLD HIM TV WAS AN ADDICTION FOR HIM AND HE SHOULD NOT RETURN TO IT. FOR A WHILE HE DIDN’T.

         THERE IS NO CURE YET FOR CORONAVIRUS. WASHING HANDS IS THE BEST PREVENTIVE, BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE MONEY ON THAT UNLESS BAKKER COMES UP WITH MAGIC SOAP. I’M CAL THOMAS.
