QAnon…And On…And On…

One of these people will have a job in January.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy got his first official taste of what it will be like to be constantly answering questions about House Republicans — including Rep-elect Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert” — who are QAnon conspiracy enthusiasts.

As The Washington Post explains:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Thursday defended two incoming Republican congresswomen who have voiced support for QAnon, falsely asserting that Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert have denounced the baseless conspiracy theory.

In a news conference, McCarthy was asked whether he was concerned about the congresswomen-elect creating controversy for House Republicans after embracing elements of the theory, whose adherents believe Trump is battling a cabal of “deep state” pedophiles who worship Satan…

Boebert, of Colorado, has spoken positively about QAnon, saying in May that she hoped “some of it is real because it only means America is getting stronger and better and people are returning to conservative values.” She later sought to distance herself from QAnon, saying she was “not a follower” but affirming that she believed there was a conspiracy to undermine the president. [Pols emphasis]

Colorado Pols readers are well aware of Q*Bert’s fondness for wacky conspiracy theories, as well as the fact that BOEBERT HAS NEVER DENOUNCED QANON. McCarthy may wish that Boebert or fellow Rep-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene did not believe in lunatic conspiracies, but that doesn’t make it true. And as this Washington Post story proves once again, reporters aren’t confused about the subject, either.

Lest it be forgotten, nobody took Boebert’s words out of context on QAnon. This is exactly what she said:

As we wrote last week, Republicans mostly gained a headache with Boebert, whose victory in CO-03 merely allowed the GOP to maintain a seat it already held. Questions like this are the price that Republicans will be forced to pay.

Again, and again.

    I've not read Q's take on the 2020 election results …. anyone know how Trump getting through 4 years WITHOUT arresting Hillary or anyone else for sordid acts is playing in the Qweeds?

    Has Q taken a position on whether DJT will miraculously win the election?

    Q has been captured by the deep state and is languishing in a secret CIA prison in Kazakhstan.
