Prosperity gospel preacher Paula White, who has laid claim as President Donald Trump’s “spiritual adviser,” was recently filmed delivering a bonkers sermon that attacked plans to give Americans free health care and claimed that the mobile app SnapChat was designed to facilitate human trafficking.
As reported by Right Wing Watch, White delivered a sermon last month at a church in California in which she boasted of her access to the White House and railed against multiple different culture war grievances.
During her sermon, White told parishioners that “the devil is doing a darn good job” of destroying America and pointed to sex education as a prime example of why.
“Right now, we’re fighting in California — in third grade, in fifth grade — they put certain things on certain vegetables and teach them how to insert them in certain parts of the anatomy,” she thundered.
In an aside, White made bizarre claims about mobile app SnapChat, which she claimed was created to benefit human traffickers.
“SnapChat was created as the largest human trafficking because the greatest people on there were human traffickers because the FBI and intelligence could not do it because it’s live and it’s real time and they can track your kid in less than a second and take them,” she said.
White then moved on to attacking proposals to give Americans free government-funded health care and higher education.
“You want free education? Really? You want free healthcare? Really?” she said. “Lyndon Johnson sent 100,000 social workers out, looked for every black pregnant woman, created a system called welfare and drove the male out of the household and said, ‘We’re going to destroy the black community because we’re going to destroy the family.'”

Trump wants Ric Grenell to keep his ambassador job while also overseeing every intelligence agency: report
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was reported to be planning to appoint U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence — a position for which he has zero qualifications. The move raised immediate fears, given that Grenell is a hardline Trump loyalist.
But it doesn't stop there. Reports also suggest that the president intends for Grenell to keep serving as Ambassador to Germany at the same time as he is overseeing every U.S. intelligence agency.
‘You lost me’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graciously defuses confrontational question
In an appearance on ABC's popular daytime talk show "The View" Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a "disconnect" between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.
Security experts sound the alarm on Russian interference in the 2020 election: Their campaign is ‘underway’
Cybersecurity experts have been warning that it isn’t a question of whether or not the Russian government under President Vladimir Putin will try to interfere in the United States’ 2020 election — it’s a question of how successful they will be and the ways in which they will make an attempt. Three security experts (Alex Finley, John Sipher and Asha Rangappa) address this concern in a February 19 article for Just Security, warning that troubling vulnerabilities remain in the United States’ election system.
