Democrats and much of the “mainstream media” did everything they could to stop Donald Trump from winning the election.

When their efforts failed, they mounted recount efforts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. They tried to pressure Electoral College members to switch their votes. A few House Republican are already calling for Trump's impeachment.

Now, witches have come up with a plan. No, really.

As reported by Huffington Post, witches plan to cast a mass spell on Trump, beginning at midnight (EST) Friday, and continuing on subsequent waning crescent moon nights — March 26, April 24, May 23, and beyond —throughout Trump's presidency.

Michael M. Hughes, who bills himself as a writer, speaker, and magical thinker, posted the spell on the ExtraNewsfeed website:

A Spell to Bind Donald Trump and All Those Who Abet Him (version 2.0)

To be performed at midnight on every waning crescent moon until he is removed from office. The first ritual takes place Friday evening, February 24th, at the stroke of midnight.

This binding spell is open source, and may be modified to fit your preferred spiritual practice or magical system  —  the critical elements are the simultaneity of the working (midnight, EST—DC, Mar-a-Lago, and Trump Tower NYC time) and the mass energy of participants.

Hughes explained to Huffington Post that a spell should not be confused with a curse, or hex, saying "it’s a restraint, not harm. I see it as self-defense.”

Apparently, in order for a spell to be effective, multiple props are required:

  • Unflattering photo of Trump
  • Tower tarot card
  • Tiny stub of an orange candle or orange carrot
  • A pin or small nail (to inscribe candle)
  • White candle (any size), representing the element of Fire
  • Small bowl of water, representing elemental Water
  • Small bowl of salt, representing elemental Earth
  • Feather (any), representing the element of Air
  • Matches or lighter
  • Ashtray or dish of sand

The ritual, which is rather lengthy, begins with practitioners writing “Donald J. Trump” on the orange candle — or carrot, I presume — with the pin or nail.

After reading the spell...

“Hear me, oh spirits

Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air

Heavenly hosts

Demons of the infernal realms

And spirits of the ancestors

(Light inscribed orange candle stub)

I call upon you

To bind

Donald J. Trump

So that he may fail utterly

That he may do no harm

To any human soul

Nor any tree

Animal

Rock

Stream

or Sea”

...practitioners are instructed to burn their unflattering photo of Trump with the orange candle, while chanting “So mote it be.”

Hughes told HuffPo that if the chant sounds a bit too “witchy,” a simple “You’re fired!” will suffice. The candle (or carrot) must then be buried, or discarded in “running water.”

Several Christian groups, including Christian Nationalism Alliance, plan to counter the spell with prayer:

"This is a declaration of spiritual war and it requires a response. As such the Christian Nationalist Alliance is announcing a Day of Prayer on each of these days. We beseech all Christian soldiers to answer this call to action by reading from Psalm 23.

We ask you to join us in praying for the strength of our nation, our elected representatives and for the souls of the lost who would take up Satanic arms against us."

When the ritual is over, witches are instructed laugh out loud, according to Hughes, because “Trump hates people laughing at him.”
