Televangelist and Donald Trump supporter Kenneth Copeland exhibited a bizarre reaction to President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election.
Copeland found the media's announcement of Biden's win over the incumbent President incredibly hilarious and laughed maniacally in front of his congregants.
In the footage posted by the progressive group Right Wing Watch, Copeland's followers joined him in his laughter and rose to their feet.

Copeland is a co-founder of Kenneth Copeland Ministries and preaches the prosperity gospel – an American Christian movement that convinces followers that faith and donations to religious causes will make them wealthy.
Twitter users were confused over the bonkers display of laughter from Sunday's video.
Some questioned the wealthy televangelist's mental health while others ensured he would not be having the last laugh.

Copeland owns a private airport near his mansion in Texas and refuses to fly commercial airlines because he said they are inhabited by "a bunch of demons."

In the midst of the pandemic, Copeland spouted false claims to followers, telling them the pandemic has ended or would end soon and that he could cure them of the disease caused by the viral pathogen.
He also urged those who have lost their jobs during the economic crisis to continue paying tithes to his church.
