On Thursday, prior to President Donald Trump’s rally in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, CNN’s Gary Tuchman asked a group of QAnon conspiracy theorists about hoa and why they have been caught up in the government conspiracy theory movement.
“We wanted to see if the people who followed this movement wanted to talk to us,” Tuchman told CNN’s, Anderson Cooper. “We found they did want to talk to us. What they told us was quite interesting. Waiting in line in a driving rain, very motivated Trump supporters.”
When asked one simple question about what QAnon stands for and the purpose of the movement, every person interviewed gave confusing and unrelated answers.
“The QAnon is people that believe in what Trump’s trying to do to change our country,” a lady said.
“It means where we go one [sic] we go all,” one person said.
“It’s an entity of 10 or less people that have a high-security clearance,” another woman added.
Tuchman then explained what QAnon is.
“More specifically QAnon is a fringe movement in which many baseless conspiracy theories are discussed on the internet, organized on the idea of anonymous but well-connected persons nicknamed Q,” Tuchman he attempted to explain.
The QAnon supporters than echoed that the media is the “enemy of the people.”
“You guys are weaponized by the CIA,” one man remarked.
“You say stuff that doesn’t even mean anything,” Tuchman responded.
“The anonymous Q is a hero to many of the people here,” Tuchman told the stunned Cooper.
Former FBI agent explains why Trump just opened himself to more legal problems
Former FBI agent Asha Rangappa explained that the recent revelations that President Donald Trump made a promise to a foreign leader that made an intelligence official uncomfortable enough to declare themselves a whistleblower.
Rangapp explained that the President has a fairly wide latitude to conduct foreign affairs as he sees fit. But "when it comes to the 'outside world,' the President represents the sovereign: He is basically the voice of the United States and can negotiate with world leaders on its behalf."
Canada’s Trudeau admits to racist ‘brownface’ makeup in high school Halloween costume
Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized Wednesday for wearing brownface makeup to a party 18 years ago, as he scrambled to get on top of a fresh blow to a re-election campaign dogged by controversy.
Time magazine published the photograph one week into a federal election campaign with Trudeau's Liberal Party in a tight contest against the Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer.
Trudeau, 47, whose party won a landslide victory in 2015, has already been under attack for an ethics lapse and other controversies.
The black-and-white photograph shows Trudeau, then 29, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands darkened at a gala party in 2001.
A veteran teacher explains why Trump is incapable of learning
While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
