President Donald Trump has long been scrutinized for his business practices, and now he is coming under criticism for employing a pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theorist at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, according to The Daily Beast.

Elizabeth Alfieri, a pastry chef, has promoted a far-right conspiracy theory QAnon on her social media channels.

Alfieri has posted on Instagram with “QAnon hashtags and slogans” and pictures of her baked goods such as cakes decorated with the QAnon symbols on them.

“QAnon centers on thousands of clues posted by an anonymous person called ‘Q,’ who posits a world of Satanic rituals reminiscent of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. QAnon believers think that Trump is engaged in a shadowy secret war against pedophiles in the Democratic Party and Hollywood,” the report said.

She also claimed on her Twitter account, which is now deleted according to The Beast, that she interacted with the secret service while at Mar-a-Lago.

“Alfieri also claimed to interact with the Secret Service at Mar-a-Lago. She posted pictures of Secret Service security pins, tagging them with QAnon-related hashtags,” the report said.

Alfieri and the Trump Organization didn’t respond to requests for comment from The Beast.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

"People care much more for their health than theater," said Hewitt via Twitter, referring to Trump's impeachment trial. The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.

Trump had bragged to the executive controlling the sale that he could use his political connections to get tax breaks for the deal.

The executive was skeptical. But the next day, the executive was invited into Trump’s limousine, which ushered him to City Hall. There, he met with Donald’s father Fred and Mayor Abe Beame, to whom the Trumps had given lavishly.
