If you want a taste of what to expect in the weeks to come, look no further than Kenneth Copeland‘s reaction to the presidential election, which is righteously freaking people out on Twitter. In a now-viral video posted by Right Wing Watch, the televangelist addresses his flock and offers his thoughts on the media announcing Joe Biden as the winner on Saturday. Although, they weren’t so much thoughts as much as a terrifying descent into madness.
“The media said what? The media said Joe Biden’s president?” Copeland said before launching into a maniacal, 40 second laugh with seemingly no end in sight.

It didn’t take long for Copeland’s insane laughter to trend as social media reacted to the TV evangelist losing his mind at the thought of Donald Trump’s defeat. Even Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn got into the act by noting that Copeland’s bizarro laugh is reminiscent of the Bradley Cooper-voiced Rocket Raccoon. The classic Dr. Evil laughing scene from Austin Powers also made an appearance.

Others pointed out that, for a holy man, Kenneth Copeland sure does look like a demon and cackling on stage for almost a full minute didn’t help.

The laughing video also dredged up the last time Copeland went viral back in 2019 when he defended owning a fleet of private jets by claiming that it protected him from flying commercial, which is basically “a long tube with a bunch of demons.”
