It looks like the media isn’t all Trump has to worry about.
Witches across the country are planning to cast a “binding spell” on President Trump tonight to “restrain his power” and cast him from the White House.
And no, this isn’t fake news.

A document, titled “A Spell to Bind Donald Trump and All Those Who Abet Him (version 2.0)” – apparently we missed version 1.0 – has been circulating the Internet asking witches to perform a ritual “at midnight on every waning crescent moon until he [Trump] is removed from office.”
While witches are told the ritual is “an open source, and may be modified to fit your preferred spiritual practice or magical system,” they are provided with some general instructions.
They’ll need a small, unflattering photo of Trump which they must burn atop a “tiny stub of an orange candle” while chanting “you’re fired!”

Those who don’t have an orange candle can use a baby carrot and white candle, instead.

Those interested in “binding Trump” can join hundreds of other witches outside of Trump Tower tonight.
Hughes told BuzzFeed News, “The analogy I use is, it’s not punching a Nazi in the face, it’s tying a Nazi up, taking his bullhorn away, and smashing his phone so he can’t tweet.”
He added that this is just one form of resistance people can partake in.
“I call Congress every day, I write letters, I’ve sent postcards, I’ve marched and everything. This is just one other prong in what we can do,” he told BuzzFeed.
Those who can’t make it all the way to New York can perform the spell at home alone or with their coven – as long as it’s within a “cleansed area.”
witchcraft brothers and sisters: remember to perform the binding ritual in a cleansed area! you do not want bad energy negating the spell!

2017 just got a whole lot weirder. Maybe the Secret Service should start carrying around buckets of water instead of guns.
