Paul Begley hosts a program called The Coming Apocalypse and fancies himself to be a prophet and an expert on “how today’s world events relate to the Holy Bible and the signs of the End Times” — all credentials that require rational people to take his claims with a grain of salt. But that doesn’t mean his musings aren’t sometimes hilariously entertaining.
Last week, Begley appeared on the Weekend Vigilante podcast with Sheila Zilinsky and claimed that First Lady Melania Trump ordered that the White House undergo an exorcism before she moved in.
“When the President allowed 40 pastors to come in to the White House and anoint him with oil and lay their hands and pray on him—seven times he’s done this—that is unheard of,” Begley said. “At least he is humble enough and recognizing that he needs God enough that he keeps bringing them in for the prayer. And I’ve got to say this, it might have started with the First Lady.”
“The first lady, in that five hours when the Obamas and the Trumps went down to the Capitol and Trump was being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States,” he continued. “Melania Trump said to her husband, ‘I’m not going to go into that White House unless it has been completely exorcised.'”
According to Begley, when the Obamas occupied the White House it was filled with “all kinds of idol gods and images and all kinds of artifacts in there that were demonic.”
“Melania said, ‘You’ve got to get all of that out of there and send in some preachers and priests to go in and cleanse the White House or I will not spend on night in it.'”
“During that five hours when they were ripping out carpets and changing drapes,” Begley said, “There were people in there packing up every idol. The only thing that was left, Sheila, was one cross on one wall. They cleansed the White House. They had people in there anointing it with oil and praying everywhere.”
