It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything out of former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. She hasn’t been newsworthy in a few years, and the world of politics is definitely considerably less hilarious without a daily dosage of her nuttiness.
But fear not, faithful Firebrand Left: Guano File readers, for Michele Bachmann has stepped out of the darkness to share with the world one of her greatest gems to date… in a recent radio interview, Bachmann prophesized that the rapture is coming to a world near you in the near future.
Michele Bachmann recently joined Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on a tour of Israel, and made her incredibly hilarious prediction during an interview with Perkins last week.
“We recognize the shortness of the hour, and that’s why we, as a remnant, want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the holy spirit is speaking to each one of us,” says Michele Bachmann, who cranked up the crazy knob to eleven and broke it right the hell off. “To be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, he’s coming soon.”
Bachmann went on to add that “the prophets longed to see the days that you and I live in.”
Michele Bachmann was one of Washington’s most unintentionally hilarious figures since she first entered the political mainstream in 2007. Her 2012 presidential campaign was the stuff of legend, mistaking Hollywood star John Wayne with the serial-killing murderous clown John Wayne Gacy, whom she accidentally revered while praising her hometown in Iowa.
Since she retired in 2013, amid allegations that she embezzled from her own campaign, the world hasn’t seen much of Michele Bachmann. But she really did pave the highway of hilarity for candidates like Donald Trump and Ben Carson, who stand today as America’s next generation of lunatic right-wing fringers. If we’re lucky, she’ll occasionally pop back into the public consciousness and deliver some Bachmann-magnitude comedy to the masses like she did with this incredible quote.
