First Trump, Now Pence: Vice President Address Qanon Conspiracy Theorists

It’s been a big week for the fringe movement.

For the glut of Americans who have been following the Qanon conspiracy theory develop, this was a big week.

First and foremost there were comments from President Trump himself that seemed to compliment followers of the complex storyline as people who very much “love their country”.  This was the most overt nod that the Commander in Chief has given to the theory, although believers will gladly point you in the direction of several different websites where they have catalogued alleged “evidence” of Trump’s acknowledgement.

Then, just a day later, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany clarified the White House’s position, all but denouncing the Qanon movement.

Vice President Mike Pence is dismissing QAnon as a “conspiracy theory,” drawing a line of distinction between himself and President Donald Trump, who earlier this week suggested he appreciated supporters of the theory backing his candidacy.

“We dismiss conspiracy theories around here out of hand,” Pence said Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” saying he had heard Trump’s comments and subsequently decrying the media that “chases after shiny objects.”

Asked on CBS’ “CBS This Morning” if he was inflaming attention on the group by not going on the record to oppose it, Pence decried “spending time on a major network to talk about some conspiracy online theory,” later adding, “I don’t know anything about QAnon, and I dismiss it out of hand.”

Supporters of the Qanon theory believe that Donald Trump is engaged in a clandestine war against the “deep state”, and that a high level government insider is posting cryptic clues online for the rest of us to follow along with.
