Among those who get their election news primarily from Fox “News,” 86% say that Trump is delivering the “completely right” or “mostly right” message about the pandemic and 39% say that QAnon—an insane conspiracy theory—is “somewhat good” or “very good.”https://t.co/XRxVHmrjF0

Straight down a cult-hole of self-reinforcing unreality…

We have to laugh, because the alternative is despair. Wonkette is, as ever, brilliant:
Followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory have had quite a month. On the downside, they’ve been banned from practically every social media site and also from Etsy. On the upside, Donald Trump has remained resolute in his refusal to condemn them, which has made them feel very empowered and what have you.
There are, of course, only a few more weeks left for all of the things they’ve been promised to come to fruition. If Trump loses the election, they lose all hope of the martial law, military tribunals and mass arrests of their dreams, and will have to go back to fretting about the martial law, military tribunals and mass arrests of their nightmares. They’ll be back to worrying about Jade Helm type things, of being put in FEMA camps, of jack booted thugs banging down their doors, rather than the doors of Hillary Clinton and Tom Hanks.
But today is the day many of them have been looking forward to for a long while now, a day that is supposed to turn things around. October 17, because of how Q is the 17th letter in the alphabet. It is to be the day Donald Trump announces, at a rally in Dallas, the city where John F. Kennedy was assassinated, that he is replacing Mike Pence with a new running mate — the surprisingly not dead John F. Kennedy, Jr…
I’m guessing at least one of the Trump kids will end up as a prominent QAnon leader/speaker, by this time next year, if the whole clan isn’t in jail or wearing ankle monitors. Eric would be my first bet, but the shock of seeing his second powerful father-figure hauled off in handcuffs might just unsettle Jared’s tiny smooth brain past the tipping point.
Tucker Carlson’s guest tonight was the niece of Osama bin Laden, who has endorsed Donald Trump.

Bin Laden's niece endorsed Trump not because she's a jihadist she's just part of an anti-Semitic cult connected to multiple kidnappings, terrorist plots, and assassination attempts around the world. pic.twitter.com/coFDmx9J5D
