If Eric can take the 5th more than 500 times, imagine these three!


Vatican response: "If we can no longer f**k your children one way, we can do it another".

The Rev. Andres Arango was leading a baptism at St. Gregory Catholic Church in Phoenix last year when some people in the pews heard a slight variation in the religious ritual.

“We baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” Father Arango said, his voice echoing in the church as he poured the holy water.

But there was a problem.

Saying “we baptize” was incorrect. The Vatican instructs priests to say “I baptize,” and if it is not said that way the baptism is deemed invalid.

Just think of all those deceased "incorrectly baptized" roasting in Hell.

And there are those who think he should be President again.

 1  You know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat — as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April.

2 China is working very, very hard. I have spoken to President Xi, and they’re working very hard. And if you know anything about him, I think he’ll be in pretty good shape. They’re — they’ve had a rough patch, and I think right now they have it — it looks like they’re getting it under control more and more. They’re getting it more and more under control. So I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away.

3 …when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.
President Trump
February 26, 2020

4  It’s going to disappear. One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear. And from our shores, we — you know, it could get worse before it gets better. It could maybe go away. We’ll see what happens. Nobody really knows.
President Trump
February 27, 2020

5  I don’t think people are panicking. I said last night — we did an interview on Fox last night, a town hall. I think it was very good. And I said, ‘Calm. You have to be calm.’ It’ll go away.
President Trump
March 6, 2020

6  We’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.
President Trump
March 10, 2020

7  You know, we need a little a separation until such time as this goes away. It’s going to go away. It’s going to go away.
President Trump
March 12, 2020

8  Stay calm. It will go away. You know it — you know it is going away, and it will go away. And we’re going to have a great victory.
President Trump
March 30, 2020

9 It’s going to go away, hopefully at the end of the month. And, if not, hopefully it will be soon after that.
President Trump
March 31, 2020

10  It is going to go away. It is going away.
President Trump
April 3, 2020

11 It did go — it will go away.
President Trump
April 7, 2020

12  But a lot of movement and a lot of progress has been made in a vaccine. But I think what happens is it’s going to go away. This is going to go away. And whether it comes back in a modified form in the fall, we’ll be able to handle it.

President Trump
April 28, 2020

13 It’s going to go. It’s going to leave. It’s going to be gone. It’s going to be eradicated. And it might take longer. It might be in smaller sections. It’ll be — it won’t be what we had. And we also learned a lot.
President Trump
April 29, 2020

14 And I think we’re doing very well on the vaccines but, with or without a vaccine, it’s going to pass, and we’re going to be back to normal.
President Trump
May 5, 2020

15  Because, you know, this virus is going to disappear. It’s a question of when. Will it come back in a small way? Will it come back in a fairly large way? But we know how to deal with it now much better. You know, nobody knew anything about it, initially. Now we know we can put out fires.
President Trump
May 6, 2020

16  Sometime in the fall, you’ll have flare-ups maybe. Maybe not. But according to what a lot of people say, you probably will. We’ll be able to put them out. You may have some flare-ups next year, but eventually, it’s going to be gone. I mean, it’s going to be gone.
President Trump
May 8, 2020

17  So I think that’s — but even without that [a vaccine or therapeutics], you know, at some point this stuff goes away and it’s going away.
President Trump
June 15, 2020

18 I always say, even without it [a vaccine], it goes away.
President Trump
June 16, 2020

19…if you look, the numbers are very minuscule compared to what it was. It’s dying out.
President Trump
June 17, 2020

20  But I will tell you, we’re very close to a vaccine, and we’re very close to therapeutics, really good therapeutics. And — but even without that — I don’t even like to talk about that, because it’s fading away. It’s going to fade away.
President Trump
June 17, 2020

21 And it is dying out. The numbers are starting to get very good.
President Trump
June 18, 2020

22 And I think we are going to be very good with the coronavirus. I think that, at some point, that’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope.
President Trump
July 1, 2020

23  I’ll be right eventually. I will be right eventually. You know I said, ‘It’s going to disappear.’ I’ll say it again. It’s going to disappear, and I’ll be right.
President Trump
July 19, 2020

24 Well, the virus will disappear. It will disappear.
President Trump
July 21, 2020

25  We’re gonna beat it, yeah. We’re going to beat it. And with time, you’re going to be it — time. You know, I say, it’s going to disappear. And they say, ‘Oh, that’s terrible.’ He said — well, it’s true. I mean, it’s going to disappear. Before it disappears, I think we can knock it out before it disappears.
President Trump

If you want the anti-vax crazies to change their minds.

Introduce this conspiracy:

In a clandestine lab in Belarus (or Cuba, Myanmar, or Minnesota) CIA paid scientists are trying to recombine the MERS coronavirus with Omicron BA.2 thus creating a virus as infectious as measles with a mortality rate of about 35%.

[Anybody have Joe Rogan's or Gov. DeSantis' phone number?]

[On the other hand, do we really want them to change their minds?]
