The QAnon narrative involve cabals of pedophiles corrupting the federal government and combating the president. Believers see Trump as a messianic figure fighting a deep state. It is entirely fictitious and has been deemed a domestic terror threat by the FBI.
“What in God’s name are we doing? Look at how it makes us look around the world. It’s mortifying. It’s embarrassing, and it’s dangerous,” Biden said. “If the president doesn’t know better, which he has to know better, then my Lord we’re in much more trouble than I ever thought we were.”
“This can’t go on. This cannot go on. It’s the deconstruction of our democratic system.” he added.
But that hasn’t stopped Trump from embracing Republican candidates who espouse QAnon mythology. He called one House candidate who supported the movement a “future Republican star”.
Biden said Trump’s failure to denounce QAnon was part of a playbook to sow discord in the country.
“The words of a president matter. Even a lousy president,” Biden said. “It gives encouragement to people who are spouting irrational views that no one has even close to presuming or showing ever existed.”
