He means it

Fake Pope Francine isn’t actually joking:

Greeting journalists Saturday en route to Lithuania, Francis was given a book about the former pope by Polish photographer Grzegorz Galazka. Receiving the large book with a beaming John Paul on the cover, Francis quipped: “(Pope John Paul II) was a saint, I am the devil.”

The servitors of evil just love telling everyone the plain truth in public. It’s as if they’re under a compulsion to do so. And you can’t later claim you weren’t warned.
