President Donald Trump’s campaign prohibits “QAnon attire” from inside his rallies, but the president and his allies have been strengthening their ties to the right-wing conspiracy theory described by law enforcement as a domestic terrorist threat.

The president himself refused to disavow the movement, and Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel sidestepped questions about it, while House Republicans call for investigations based on the conspiracy theory, GOP candidates openly embrace its claims and Trump allies use its terminology in interviews, reported The Daily Beast.

“It’s going to be a storm,” said former Trump strategist Steve Bannon this week on his podcast, using the theory’s term for mass arrests of the president’s enemies for alleged child trafficking and other crimes.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, who was caught himself in a compromising position with a young actress in the upcoming “Borat” sequel, has been claiming that Joe Biden’s son has incriminating or even illegal photos of underage women on his laptop computer.

“I was very uncomfortable with this,” Giuliani said about the laptop, “and I’m very uncomfortable with the fact that these underaged girls were not protected.”

Giuliani claims he handed over the data to Delaware State Police, who then turned the investigation to the FBI due to “ongoing questions about the credibility of these claims.”

Trump’s allies have also claimed that Hunter Biden associates were at risk for being murdered, such as former business partner Bevan Cooney, who’s currently serving a term in federal prison in Oregon and reportedly handed over access to his email account to Bannon associate Peter Schweizer.

Schweizer and other Bannon associates have claimed that Cooney was removed from his prison cell for safety reasons, but a person familiar with Cooney’s legal defense said that if he had been moved, it would have been due to the coronavirus.

Some conservatives are becoming apoplectic as the lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continue unabated

Published

The lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continued unabated over this past weekend. After his mysteriously oozing press conference last Thursday, Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani kept an uncharacteristically low profile. Jenna Ellis, his partner in the "elite strike force," took to Twitter to insult longtime Republican pollster Frank Luntz, accusing him of "micropenis syndrome," but beyond that she too stayed quiet. They left the public appearances to Sidney Powell, the member of the team best known as former national security adviser Michael Flynn's least competent attorney.

Attorney Ken White, a former federal prosecutor, has taken a look at some of the Trump campaign's latest legal filings and has found them to be equal parts "shockingly ridiculous" and "stunningly incompetent."

WATCH: Trump shamed Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede White House pardon contest

Published

on

It was just two years ago that President Donald Trump mocked a Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede the election for a White House pardon. As Thanksgiving 2020 approaches, Trump has officially become that turkey.

"This was a fair election... unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount," Trump announced about the battle between Carrots and Peas.

"We're still fighting with Carrots," he joked in a speech. "And I will tell you, we've come to a conclusion: Carrots, I'm sorry to tell you, the results did not change. Too bad for Carrots."

It's unclear if Carrots still maintains the election was rigged, as President Trump does about the 2020 election. He joined Peas at Virginia Tech’s “Gobblers Rest” exhibit in Blacksburg, Virginia. There students and veterinarians within Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences care for all turkeys given a pardon.
