Televangelist and convicted felon Jim Bakker claimed on Nov. 25 that the election of President Donald Trump in 2016 somehow caused there to be less earthquakes, notes the Friendly Atheist:
You want to see a chart that [will] blow your mind? I just got this from one of my newsmen here in the staff. You see that? You see what this is? This is the lowest earthquakes… Look at, down here. You want to know what that is? That’s the election of Donald Trump. Why would there be a dip in the earthquakes at the time of the election? Why would there be less earthquakes there?
As his supposed evidence, Bakker used a made-up chart created by one of this employees, which was debunked by Right Wing Watch:
It looks like Bakker faked his chart, as the actual data shows no such drop in 2016. pic.twitter.com/qROLbh8mjT— Right Wing Watch (@RightWingWatch) November 25, 2019
