Pat Robertson on Haiti: Eye roll, please

Posted on

I feel terrible taking any attention away from televangelist Pat Robertson during his big media moment, but I’m kind of fascinated with how 700 Club co-host Kristi Watts barely reacts as he informs her that the reason there was an earthquake in Haiti is because “the people of Haiti got together and swore a pact with the devil.” Do the producers send a current of electricity into her just before Robertson’s gonna say something f—ed up so that she freezes up and just nods? This is the second-biggest trainwreck I’ve seen all day. (This happened.)

(By the way, his spokesman has since clarified, “Dr. Robertson never stated the earthquake was God’s wrath.”)
