I want to ask a question that should have been asked of Donald Trump at the Miami town hall session he held last night.
Trump received a question about conspiracy theorists, such as QAnon — the right wing goofballs who back his candidacy for re-election. “I don’t know anything about QAnon,” he said. It’s a familiar dodge that Trump has employed whenever he gets asked about, oh, white supremacists, or the KKK, or any of the loons who want him re-elected.
The question that never seems to get asked is this: As president of the United States, arguably the most powerful position on Earth, shouldn’t you know about these groups?
Trump seems all too willing to fall back on some sort of “I know nothing” defense of what I believe is the indefensible.
What also is indefensible has been the media’s reluctance to challenge him directly on what to me looks like an obvious follow-up question.
This kook fringe called “QAnon” had gotten past me forl far too long. I didn’t know much about it. Then I learned more than I ever wanted to know.
These morons are loons, freaks, conspiracy nut jobs. They allege all kinds of lunacy, such as Democrats killing and eating children, that demons are invading the United States. They adhere to the usual lunacy, such as the birther crap involving Barack Obama and now, Kamala Harris.
QAnon espouses death to all Muslims.
But get a load of this: Donald Trump won’t disavow QAnon. He makes some goofball statement about it being “out there,” and that he doesn’t know anything about it, so he won’t pass judgment. “I’ve heard these are people that love our country and they just don’t like seeing it. I don’t know really anything about it other than they do supposedly like me. And they also would like to see problems in these areas … go away,” Trump said.
Huh? What the f*** is the matter with this clown?
I hear QAnon has some fans on the far right fringe. They include notables such as former Ku Klux Klan grand lizard David Duke, the hater who has endorsed Donald Trump’s re-election.
I want to hand out a bouquet to one Republican lawmaker, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who has condemned QAnon. “QAnon is a dangerous lunacy that should have no place in American politics,” Cheney said in a statement on Thursday.
There you go. Some sanity does exist within the GOP. If only it did in the Oval Office.
