Bakker: Memory Loss From Stroke May Keep Me Off Air

The Christian Post reports:

After suffering a stroke in May that was initially described as “minor,” televangelist Jim Bakker revealed Wednesday that he’s struggling with memory loss and could be away from his show for months as he recuperates while fighting to keep the troubled show on air. “It’s so good to be back. I didn’t know if I’d ever be back,” he said during an appearance on the show broadcast from his home with his wife and co-host, Lori Bakker, at his side.

“I want you to know that what I’ve been through, I’m not through yet. I’m not through the valley. I don’t know if I’ll be back on the air for a few months. But I had a stroke, how long ago now?” he said, asking his wife who noted, “a couple months ago now.” After a few minutes of his gently guided speech by his wife and other co-hosts, the televangelist, who turned 80 in January, explained that he was struggling with his memory but doctors believe he can make a full recovery.

It appears that Bakker’s producers have not made a clip of the above appearance available. Bakker is facing potentially millions in fines due to a lawsuit filed by the state AG of Arkansas over his claim that his “Silver Solution” cures and prevents COVID, HIV, STDs, and other diseases. Yesterday it was revealed that his “church” gobbled up as much as $1 million in the SBA bailout.
