(OPINION) Newsweek – Greg Locke, a right-wing pastor, told his raucous sermon attendees Sunday that President Joe Biden and “jezebel demon” Vice President Kamala Harris are overseeing “child-trafficking” tunnels beneath Washington D.C.

Locke, who is head of Global Vision Bible Church in Juliet, Tennessee, once again claimed that former President Donald Trump is, at least in his mind, the “legitimate” leader of the United States. He ridiculed HBO and other media companies for labeling any supporter of Trump’s unproven election claims to be a member of the “QAnon” conspiracy theory group.

He said he will never walk back his status as a self-proclaimed “prophet” because his prediction that Trump would win is actually “fact.” The pastor, who has made controversial and often fanatical pro-Trump remarks for years, said he mocks any critic asking him: “When are you going to apologize, for being a false prophet?”

“When y’all going to get the memo that I didn’t get it wrong?” Locke shot back in his rhetorical remarks. “Trump ain’t never went anywhere, he ain’t back, he’s always been around. He is the legitimate president of the United States of America. I don’t care if you stand up and clap or not. I’m telling you, Donald Trump is the legitimate president of the United States of America. You’ve got to smoke a lot of dope in your mom’s basement not to believe that fact.” FULL REPORT
