Senate Democrat Demands President Trump Take Action Against Qanon Followers

I wouldn’t hold your breath on this one.

Over the course of the last few weeks, the Qanon theory has gone mainstream, with a number of prominent politicians not only acknowledging the underground internet community who have been researching the phenomenon, but attacking it as well.

Last week, President Trump himself responded to a question about the Qanon saga, saying that he had heard that these we “people who loved their country”.  A day later, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany appeared to walk back the kind words, indicating that the White House did not endorse the idea that a Trump administration insider was leaking cryptic clues on the internet regarding a war between Trump and the “deep state”.

Just a day later, Vice President Mike Pence said that he dismisses the theory outright.

Apparently, this wasn’t enough for the Democrats, who are now demanding that POTUS himself speak out against the Qanon theorists.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) on Sunday called on President Trump to “disavow” the QAnon movement, calling the group’s members “whack jobs.”

Warner, the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told NBC News’s “Meet the Press” that it is “fairly clear” that the conspiracy theory movement, which has gained traction among some Republican voters, is a “fringe group,” adding that “they are potentially a threat.”

“The idea that the president of the United States is embracing these folks and say just because they like him and they love our country is very bizarre,” the Virginia Democrat said.

“These guys are whack jobs, and the president ought to disavow them,” he added.

Given just how infrequently the President has bowed to the demands of congressional Democrats, Warner oughtn’t hold his breath.
