Folks who didn’t grow up in South Florida have no idea of the cultural currency of Walter Mercado, the Liberace of Libra. For more than thirty years the flamboyant astrologer has charmed biddies with hair as pouffed and purple as his with charts and predictions. Well, should Donald J. Trump get elected in November, Mercado predicts Gog and Magog:
“I did a chart about what I see in the future and the present of this monster, this backwards person that can lead not only the United States, but the world, to total destruction,” Mercado said in Spanish. “He has no knowledge of politics and no knowledge of any type of diplomacy. He is a person that thinks money can buy anything and thinks that you can buy the conscience of all of humanity. The conscience cannot be bought with these policies that are so insulting and offensive to the human race.”
“I am totally, completely and absolutely in favor of Hillary, and astrologically, she is the better prospect,” he said. “God willing, the stars will align so that we will have the right president.”
So listen, you Cuban Republicans: voting for Trump will upset the delicate balance of the solar system. Put your vote where your star charts are.
