WATCH: Prank call targeting Joel Osteen’s prayer hotline quickly descends into hilarious absurdity

Published

on

An attempted prank call to Joel Osteen’s prayer hotline by the creator of “Rick and Morty” went awry when the operator began speaking in tongues.

Justin Roiland was in studio for the H3 Podcast when he decided to prank megachurch pastor Joel Osteen, who has received blistering criticism for initially refusing to open his church to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

“I need to talk to Joel Osteen, it’s a very important message, I have lots of money right now,” Roiland stated. “I have over $87,000 and I am ready…sorry I $83,897 right now for Joel Osteen and I’m ready to pray. Let’s pray together.”

“Call back tomorrow,” the prayer line operator responded.

“How much do you get paid to answer the prayer line?” Roiland asked.

That’s when the conversation rapidly deteriorated, as the operator began speaking gibberish.

“Did you just talk in tongues?” Roiland asked. “Is that Klingon, are you talking in Klingon? Is that baby-talk?”

“What does any of this mean, I’m confused?” Roiland asked.

“If I were translate this, would it be like, heh, ‘don’t let people into the building during a flood because we don’t want their dirty footsteps walking on our nice carpets?” Roiland asked.

When Roiland began mocking the gibberish spoken by the operator, she began to laugh heartily.

“You’re laughing at it because you know it’s funny because it’s ridiculous,” Roiland noted. “That’s why you’re laughing right now.”

“I just made you laugh at your own ridiculousness,” Roiland explained.

‘A wild, disgusting, ugly ride’: MSNBC analyst warns 2020 will be ‘desperate’ Trump running to avoid arrest

Published

During a panel discussion with political pundits, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace warned that we're about to enter one of worst campaigns of our lives.

Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker noted that President Donald Trump's Orlando kickoff was essentially a repeat of his 2016 kickoff, with the same policies and same promises.

"It felt like déjà vu for both of us who covered the 2016 campaign because it was the same 'populist' messages, same grievances, same lines, even and the same response with the same crowd. And the same logo," Rucker said.

But it was MoveOn communications chief Karine Jean-Pierre that warned of a horrific election season as Trump runs a race not only for his presidency but for his life.

"Hicks told lawmakers today that she did not have knowledge during 2016 campaign of hush-money payments made in run-up to election," reports CNN's Manu Raju. "Also she wouldn’t discuss what she learned about those payments during her time at White House because of immunity claims."

Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is familiar: Troll the libs!

Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.
