Witches and pagans plan to bring Trump down by "mental action" during 2nd TV debate

    • Thread Starter

    According to the Daily Telegraph, witches and pagans intend to bring an end to Donald Trump's campaign by exerting mental influence on him during the second TV debate. The debate begins at 2am next Monday morning (10 October), British summer time.

    "A non-partisan group calling itself the World Ad-Hoc Association of Witches has pledged to 'exert mental influence' on the debate which, it claims, will force the billionaire to quit the race."

    "The group has urged pagans and witches across the world to participate in what it describes as a 'call to action'."

    "It will entail the pagan community focusing its energy on the debate and getting inside Mr Trump’s head."

    "Rather helpfully the call to action includes a map to show supporters exactly where in St Louis Missouri they should concentrate their mystical powers."

    "When the debate moderator, Anderson Cooper asks questions, pagans and witches have been told to chant 'quit the race'."

    "When Mr Trump speaks, they should intone 'I quit' in the hope of entering what it describes as his “mental field”. The group is confident of success, believing it will pave the way for the Republicans to choose another candidate."

    “'From the moment we begin our influence, the idea of quitting will dominate Trump’s mind,' the group says." "Peter Gower, the group’s Scotland based spokesman, added: 'We will cause no physical harm. We will simply hold up a mirror to him on the astral plane. As we watch the debate, tens of thousands of us will shout the idea of quitting into his mind.'

    'This is exactly what part of this extremely dangerous man’s mind wants anyway, and we intend to ensure that it happens.'

    'It is possible he may announce during the debate itself that he’s quitting. But whatever happens, he will quit no more than 24 hours later.'"

    There is no need. The Washington Post already beat them to it.

    When you're hated by USA Today, The Washington Post and the NY Times - you are not going to win.

    Don't worry, the Washington Post already beat them to it.
