CNN asks Trump supporters outside rally to explain 'QAnon' theory



CNN asked supporters of President Trump to explain “QAnon,” a right-wing conspiracy theory, in tense interviews outside of his Pennsylvania rally on Thursday night.

CNN’s Gary Tuchman asked Trump supporters, some of whom were wearing or displaying Q gear at the rally, about the wide-ranging and vague conspiracy theories spread under the name “QAnon.”

Trump supporter Timothy Rasmussen told CNN that said “Q” represents a “movement.”

“It’s a shift. I can feel it coming, some call it the great awakening,” Rasmussen said.


Theses people are nutters.

12. No. CNN and everyone should face the 'cult'? fans? & respectfully question them.

also CNN research on internet when the Q concept first appeared and report the name of what group promoted this. someone, some group started this.

ignoring bullshit doesn't work.

as they're called, online for gullible idiots to follow and collect then piece an imagined narrative together about the deep state and "enemy of the people press".

They are being played and are falling hard for it.

50. someone needs to research internet and reveal who first did the Q thing.

It's there somewhere probably twitter/facebook started on one of those propaganda filled social media sites.

be very interesting to reveal what media business started the Q. perhaps its kellyannes "social media' business. maybe check the shirt sellers websites.

I don't think it's one of the Russian troll businesses- they're more into spreading fear, divisive propaganda, race troubles, democracy busting for their RW friends.

Then we would no longer be seeing them hoisted on pickups and on car decals.

It's time to take the RW's appropriation and co-opt tactics and use it against them.

The non-evidence is made of antimatter and if you actually touched it you'd be annihilated. That's why they really don't want to see the non-evidence. It's too dangerous.

23. Their level of gullibility is rather stunning. And their ability to parrot



things they read or hear just reflects how little they know. Ask them to go into detail about some of the things they allegedly support and they stutter and stammer with confusion. So they know just enough to be dangerous and yet think they are “informed” and in the know. I doubt there is anything that can make them understand how badly they have been duped by tRump unless maybe to be personally stung by some of his policies. Even then, they are likely to shift blame to someone — anyone else — other than their hero, tRump. It will never occur to these morons that they’ve been lied to over and over.

are simply people looking for something - ANYTHING - that justifies their bigotry and prejudice and makes them out to be the "victim" of all the groups of people who they do not identify with. It is that simple. All this is, is the furthering of "birtherism" and "clinton body count" craziness into the Trump era.

40. So, Just Stop...

Maybe the news media needs to cover actual news. These Trump events are just damn pep rallies. If the pResident says something relevant and policy-related, then mention that. Otherwise, ignore him apart from a mention of Agent Orange being in a particular place for a rally of supporters. Promoting his crap makes it worse. It's clear support and attendence at these crapfests is going down. Video shows the sea of empty chairs.

Letting Putin's Puppet suck all the oxygen away from real stories was the mistake. Without the free publicity, he evaporates. Let his ego start dealing with empty rooms because the loonballs can't get on TV and watch his support flush. Trump is so obviously needy that his unmassaged ego will suck him into himself like the terminal stage of a black hole.
