The QAnon narrative features cabal of pedophiles corrupting the federal government and fighting the president. Believers see Trump as a messianic figure fighting a deep state. It is completely fictional and has been classified as a domestic terror threat by the FBI.
“What in God’s name are we doing? See how it makes us look around the world. It’s shameful. It’s embarrassing and dangerous,” Biden said. “If the president doesn’t know better what he needs to know better, then we, sir, have a lot more problems than I ever thought.”
“It cannot go on. It cannot go on. It is the deconstruction of our democratic system.”
But that hasn’t stopped Trump from embracing Republican candidates who advocate QAnon mythology. He called a House candidate who supported the movement a “future Republican star.”
Biden said Trump’s failure to denounce QAnon was part of a game book designed to sow discord in the country.
“A president’s words matter. Even a lousy president,” Biden said. “It encourages people to express irrational views that no one has come close to suspecting or showing that they ever existed.”
