Louisiana televangelist seeks $54 million for private jet so he can avoid ‘demons’ who infest commercial flights

A Louisiana televangelist is asking his followers to help him raise tens of millions of dollars so he can buy a new private jet.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Pastor Jesse Duplantis, who two years ago made headlines by claiming that aborted babies would all be resurrected and sent to Heaven via the Rapture, is asking people to donate money to help him secure a private jet that he says will be used to spread God’s word more efficiently than by taking commercial flights.

“I really believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn’t be riding a donkey,” Duplantis said in a video promoting fundraising for the jet. “He’d be in an airplane flying all over the world.”

The Times-Picayune notes that Duplantis has been complaining about the burdens of relying on commercial airlines for years now, and in 2015 he even said commercial flights were infested by “a bunch of demons” who were hindering his work of spreading the Gospel.

The jet that Duplantis has his eyes on is the Dassault Falcon 7X, a three-engine jet that has an estimated net worth of $54 million.

“I want you to believe in me for a Falcon 7X,” he told his followers in a fundraising pitch. “Pray about becoming a partner to it.”

On Tuesday morning, CNN host Alisyn Camerota dropped the hammer on Fox News for spinning the Justice Department inspector general report that absolved the department of any conspiracy against Donald Trump, instead saying that it was an indictment of the department.

Joined by CNN contributor, ex-Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) and CNN host Brian Stelter, Camerota shared Fox clips from Monday night featuring hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham and marveled at the obvious lies.

"Let's go back to reality-world instead of upside-down world right now," host Camerota smirked after rolling the clips, "which is what we just played a montage of. Charlie, when you hear, you know, the talking points from obviously the Trump cheerleaders as well as some of your former Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, do they -- when Hannity says everything we've been reporting for years has been dead on accurate, we were right every step of the way, and the report completely negates that, do they believe that? Why are they saying that?"

President Donald Trump attacked his FBI director hours ahead of his White House meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, and other social media users noticed a big coincidence.

Published

on

President Donald Trump started off Tuesday morning in a frothy rage -- hours before Democrats were scheduled to release two articles of impeachment.

House Democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment accusing the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, and Trump raged against the constitutional process that's consuming his presidency.

"To Impeach a President who has proven through results, including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country’s history, to have one of the most successful presidencies ever, and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!#2020Election," Trump tweeted.
