Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, who is said to have a strong following in Israel, claimed it was sent as a sign from God ahead of the vote.
The serpent is said to have crawled out of the rocks of Temple Mount just ahead of the vote which saw Donald Trump lose control of Congress.
Artzi told Breaking Israel News: “God intervenes from beginning to end in our choices, in every aspect, without us realising it.
“He intervenes in our elections, great and small, Jews and non-Jews alike.
“If we are crooked in our voting, we will suffer. If we vote for the straight and the good, the pure and holy, we will profit from our voting.”

“He intervenes in all elections, local, municipal, and national, in such a manner that people don’t even realise.
“The heart of the king, the heart of every politician is in God’s hands.
“If we are crooked in our voting, we will suffer. If we vote for the straight and the good, the pure and holy, we will profit from our voting…
“The snake was a sign, sent by God. The archetypal Biblical snake caused problems for Adam and Eve, tricking them into choosing incorrectly.
“With the snake at the Kotel, God was saying, ‘Choose well; be pure and holy, stand with God and Messiah.”
Daily Star Online previously reported a biblical prophecy had been fulfilled when a “red heifer” was born in Israel – signalling the end of days and the coming of the Messiah in both Christianity and Judaism.
The Temple Institute announced the birth of an entirely red female calf that “brings the promise of reinstating Biblical purity to the world”.
Red heifers feature in end times tales in both Christianity and Judaism.
