Trump's Evangelical Adviser Says Flu Shots Aren't Necessary If You Have Jesus

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

As the old maxim goes, you can judge a person's character by the people they choose to surround themselves with. If that's true, we should all be very afraid. One of President Donald Trump's spiritual advisers, Gloria Copeland, who founded the Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Texas, posted a reckless and dangerous message about the flu season. 

According to Copeland there is no need to get a flu shot, because Jesus has GOT THIS.

Copeland said in her message:

Well, listen, partners, we don’t have a flu season. And don’t receive it when somebody threatens you with, ‘Everybody’s getting the flu.’ We’ve already had our shot: He [Jesus] bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases. That’s what we stand on.

No word on where Jesus was while 53 children were dying from flu-related illnesses. You can watch the full clip below.
