Televangelist Kenneth Copeland's Manic Reaction To Biden Winning Election Is Seriously Disturbing

US televangelist Kenneth Copeland can be seen laughing 'demonically' in a bizarre video that has circulated online.

The 83-year-old pastor, from Texas, can be seen fake laughing for what soon becomes an uncomfortable amount of time, mocking the media for saying Joe Biden has won the 2020 election.

Copeland, who is reportedly worth around $760 million (£577m) - films his services regularly and on Sunday he could be seen making the strange display.

He can be heard asking: "The media said what? Hahahahaha."

He then went on to fake-laugh in an almost-manic manner, with viewers on social media describing it as 'terrifying' and likening him to a 'demon'

It's not the first time over recent months that Copeland, who is a Donald Trump supporter, has made headlines thanks to his controversial televised sermons.

Back in April, he claimed he summoned the 'wind of God' to destroy the coronavirus, which has so far been attributed to 238,000 deaths in the US alone.

Pastor Kenneth Copeland was leading a televised service at the start of April, preaching a sermon to a virtual congregation (and a few kind-of-socially-distanced folk joining him in the near-empty room) via the Kenneth Copeland's Ministries YouTube feed.

In the stream, he blew into the camera's direction and, seemingly addressing Covid-19, said: "I blow the wind of God on you. You are destroyed forever, and you'll never be back. Thank you, God. Let it happen. Cause it to happen."

He also led a chant with other members of his megachurch, calling out: "Wind, almighty, strong, south wind, heat: burn this thing, in the name of Jesus. I say, you bow your knees. You fall on your face."

Copeland also explained it didn't have to be a 'fast' wind, just 'hot'.

Seems legit.

Copeland said on stage: "This thing is gonna hit New Orleans. I tell you, it gets hot down there... Because it's right down there on the coast. It gets muggy.

"And that's what it takes to kill this thing. It hates heat, it hates humidity, it hates water - it just dies."

During the service, Copeland also said God had told him three years ago that he must raise $300 million (£243 million) of income this year - and he wasn't going to let the virus stop him from reaching that goal.
