New York AG orders televangelist Jim Bakker to stop advertising ‘Silver Solution’ as coronavirus treatment
A #scumbag is a scumbag is a scumbag and they rarely, if ever, change their #devious ways. So goes #Jimmy-The-Consummate-Con-Man-Bakker
As New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declares a state of emergency amid a spike in coronavirus cases, the state’s attorney general, Letitia James, is going after a Chrisitan televangelist for “false advertising.”
A guest of The Jim Bakker Show on Feb. 12, Sherrill Sellman, was asked if the “Silver Solution,” sold for $125 on his website, would be effective against the coronavirus.
Being a sleaze bag is nothing new to Jimmy Boy. He has been a conman most of his professional life and has even been accused of #rape. He and his then wife Tammy Fay (the queen of bad makeup) conned the shit out of 10’s – of 1,000’s of people for millions of dollars, even more despicable, they did it in the name of the Lord.
Bakker served five years of a 45-year sentence for stealing millions from his ministry, The Praise the Lord Club. He was also accused of raping Jessica Hahn, a church’s secretary, in the 1980s. Bakker testified that he had been set up, arguing that sex with Hahn was consensual.
Now the #scumbag jumped on the #scare-tactic-bandwagon trying to bilk the frightened public out of their hard earned money by sell snake oil they claim will cure the coronavirus. Just how low can someone go. I guess I answered my ow question.
When his co-conspirator was asked about the effectiveness of his snake-oil called Silver Solution, this was his answer. “Let’s say it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the coronavirus,” Sellman, a naturopathic doctor, is quoted as saying, “but it’s been tested on other trains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours.”
With all of the concern and panic over the virus, these #Charlestons/#profiteers should be put in the slams for their #false-advertising and spreading false hope.
Tips for fighting the virus: Primary aid; keep your hands away from your face.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
- CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
- Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
