After the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, conservative conspiracy theorists spread a rumor that March 4 would be the next big date in which conservative voters would rise to power again.
The right-wing conspiracy group QAnon believes that President Donald Trump will officially become the president again on that date at the inauguration ceremony and will create the long-awaited "storm." The explanation of "the storm" is that mass arrests and deaths of what they believe are satanic pedophiles in the so-called "deep state."
Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel, who is in Orlando for CPAC this weekend, interviewed one QAnon supporter who explained that the real date is now March 20.
According to a man named Ken, Trump is actually still in command of the military and will be inaugurated on March 20. President Joe Biden's presidency, he said, is just a ruse. He thinks that Pope Francis will be among those "rounded-up" on March 20.
"See, there's this clause in the Constitution that says that power doesn't transfer til March 20," Ken explained. "An oath might get taken on the 21st. That oath was actually taken on the 20th, right? And I have friends in Spain who had it before it was even aired."
