CBN’s Pat Robertson Infuriates Christians With Comments on Trump


Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and long-time host of The 700 Club, was trending on Twitter Monday with tens of thousands of tweets responding to his biting comments on President Trump being “very erratic,” living in “an alternate reality” and how he should “move on” from the election fraud.

These unexpected comments come weeks after Robertson said the Lord told him that Trump would win reelection.

Reactions from Christian leaders and devoted followers of Jesus have been swift, rejecting Robertson’s sudden assertion that Biden “won” the election. They are calling him out with comments on hypocrisy, lack of discernment and lack of faith.

Simultaneously, liberals are praising Robertson as “a voice of reason.” A liberal journalist at Vox tweeted at Robertson, “welcome to the resistance [against Trump].”

Robertson’s statements, his personal opinion, were made following a news statement discussing a potential 2024 presidential run.

“In the last four years, Dr. Robertson has been a strong, vocal supporter of a great many positions President Trump has taken on a number of issues,” says Chris Roslan, spokesman for CBN. “Dr. Robertson expressed his disagreement with the latest efforts to fight the election results—despite Dr. Robertson’s belief that those results are corrupt.”

Robertson also expressed his disappointment in how the evangelical community has overlooked some of President Trump’s poor decisions and remarks merely because they felt he was “on their side.”

“Dr. Robertson continues to pray for the president every day and encourages others to do the same,” Roslan says.

Based on social media comments, the perception is that Robertson, who once ran for president decades ago, has given up the fight to preserve freedom and rights protected under the U.S. Constitution. He has put his thoughts, feelings and wavering faith ahead of prophetic words, including what he shared, on President Trump being inaugurated president for a second term.

Rodney Howard-Browne, senior pastor of The River Church in Tampa, Florida, tweeted yesterday, “this is mind-blowing to me how preachers can be so dumb.”
