Trump Is Making Love to QAnon and We Should All Be Terrified

“I didn’t think it was possible, but Donald Trump is more dangerous than ever. Last week, he warned America that if he’s indicted, we would face ‘problems … the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen.’ For a man who already incited one violent riot over his defeat in the 2020 election, a veiled threat of violence (nice democracy there — if you can keep it!) cannot be dismissed as a mere toothless bluff. But it gets (arguably) worse: Trump has gone full QAnon. Last Tuesday, Trump reposted a picture of himself on his social media platform Truth Social wearing a Q pin with the words ‘The Storm is Rising.’ As the Associated Press explains, ‘In QAnon lore, the ‘storm’ refers to Trump’s final victory, when supposedly he will regain power and his opponents will be tried, and potentially executed, on live television.’” (09/20/22)
