WATCH: Limbaugh Says The Left’s Idea of QAnon is Totally Exaggerated
The conspiracy theorists that make up QAnon have been having a tough time lately. Facebook and Twitter have banned a number of their groups from their pages. They’ve been denounced by a number of Republican lawmakers. They do, however, seemingly have the support of Donald Trump.
During last night’s NBC News town hall, Trump again flailed when asked to denounce the fringe group, saying that he doesn’t know who they are. This afternoon, Rush Limbaugh tried to rationalize Trump’s answer by saying the left’s portrayal of was exaggerated.
The controversial radio host began, “One thing Donald Trump will not do is criticize — excessively, I mean, he won’t go overboard on it — anybody that likes him.”
“I, frankly, don’t think he knows what QAnon — I don’t know how many people do know what QAnon is. The left’s impersonation or impression, the left’s version of what QAnon is, is absurd. And so they tie that to — well, their version of QAnon is that its a conspiracy theory about child pedophilia rings being run out of a pizza shop in Washington. That’s what they think QAnon is. So they think if they can get Trump to say that he doesn’t have a problem with QAnon, they can get him to say he supports child pedophiIia rings out of a pizza shop in Washington. It’s just — it’s just childish, it’s beneath everybody’s dignity here.”
