On Wednesday, a large Facebook group composed of self-described “witches” cast spells to “bind” President Donald Trump “and all those who abet him.”
The group, which calls itself “Bind Trump,” has more than 2,000 members. Although it’s unclear exactly how many people participated in the event, on the night of the alleged binding ceremony, dozens posted pictures and videos of their anti-Trump rituals.
The witches’ event was scheduled to correspond with the waning crescent moon, and the group’s members used an organized liturgy to wish evil on Trump’s agenda.
Participants were instructed to gather a number of “components” to aid them in their efforts, including a tower tarot card, “an unflattering picture of Trump,” candles, a “Small bowl of water, representing elemental Water,” an ashtray “or a dish of sand” and a feather.
