If you woke up this morning to find that “demon sperm” was trending on Twitter and didn’t immediately go back to bed, congratulations on your high constitution. Now that you’ve conquered that first hurdle, the reason such a thing is trending is because a doctor touted by multiple members of the Trump family believes that people get sick from having sexual relations with demons and witches in their dreams.
Dr. Stella Immanuel became a sensation overnight after a speech she made on Monday claiming hydroxychloroquine cures COVID-19 went viral, gaining tens of millions of views in less than 24 hours. As Facebook and Twitter moved to take the video down for spreading misinformation, the Daily Beast broke the story on who this doctor is and what else she believes.

Immanuel had rapidly become a right-wing favorite for not only the misinformation about hydroxychloroquine but also for claiming that wearing masks isn’t necessary and for previously saying that scientists invented an anti-religion vaccine.
On the topic of demon sperm, she has published multiple articles and speeches blaming reproductive health issues and sexual dysfunction on people having intercourse with their “spirit husbands” and “spirit wives,” by which she means demons and witches in people’s dreams.
Wow, it’s just amazing how Trump shifted his tone. This was the week he finally become president of the United States. https://t.co/Ee369STvR6— Joshua Holland 🔥 (@JoshuaHol) July 28, 2020

“We call them all kinds of names—endometriosis, we call them molar pregnancies, we call them fibroids, we call them cysts, but most of them are evil deposits from the spirit husband,” she said in a 2013 sermon. “They are responsible for miscarriages, impotence—men that can’t get it up.”
Also, watch out, sperm-havers, because dream witches are out to steal it. Then there’s the anti-religion vaccine.

“They found the gene in somebody’s mind that makes you religious, so they can vaccinate against it,” she said in 2015.
The "Doctor" that was trending because she was saying Hydroxychloroquine works also believes that you can develop an STI infection from having "dream sex" with demons and getting "demon sperm" inside you. Now look, you do with that info what you will. I think I'll trust Fauci.— AnonymousGamer (@Anonymo12869076) July 28, 2020
Both the president and Donald Trump Jr. retweeted the video of Immanuel’s recent speech at an event organized by the astroturf group Tea Party Patriots, who are backed by wealthy Republican donors. Don Jr. was hit with a temporary suspension on Twitter for sharing the video and calling it a “must watch.”
The president, meanwhile, is back on his hydroxychloroquine horse in spite of attempts to adopt a more serious and reasoned tone as November approaches. He also retweeted a complaint and conspiracy theory about the fact that the video had been removed from social media.
This press conference of doctors had 14 million views on Facebook today. FB took it down shortly after a NYTimes reporter complained. The FB comms person who replied to the NYTImes reporter confirming it was removed used to work for @SenatorBoxer & @dccc. https://t.co/VhABDKN6MX— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) July 28, 2020
A Facebook spokesman says the video was removed "for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19." https://t.co/dTKZMHL7GF— Kevin Roose (@kevinroose) July 28, 2020
Immanuel herself tweeted out a threat at Facebook, warning them about divine intervention.

The registered Texas doctor has also already announced to Trump that she would love to meet with him.
