QAnon conspiracy theorists say Trump got Covid-19 ‘on purpose’ ahead of Hillary Clinton arrest: ‘To get her’
They interpreted that the president's use of the word 'together' was not that at all -- they believe it means 'to get her' hinting that he was in the process of trying to arrest his former rival
QAnon, according to BBC is a "wide-ranging, unfounded conspiracy theory" that is under the impression that President Donald Trump is "waging" a war against "Satan-worshipping pedophiles in government, business, and the media." People that believe this theory also believe that big shots such as Hillary Clinton will be "arrested and executed" on a "day of reckoning." The believers of this conspiracy theory are often referred to as "baseless" as the theory strongly continues to indicate that POTUS plans to arrest leftist deep-state operatives, as reported by the Rolling Stone. While that's the gist of QAnon's beliefs, The Sun has recently reported that the followers of this theory are saying that the president was infected with the novel virus COVID-19 on "purpose" so as to "distract media while Hillary Clinton is arrested."
Of course, based on the beliefs of the QAnon conspiracy theory followers, it is not hard to believe that they think that the virus is fake regardless of the 207,000 deaths of Americans to date because of the virus. The publication revealed that the believers are "giddy" and "dangerously hyped" because they speculate that POTUS is using his recent COVID-19 diagnosis to cover-up the arrest of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The president had announced recently that he and First Lady Melania Trump had contracted the novel coronavirus and QAnon followers claim that the way the president broke the news could have a double meaning relating to Clintons' arrest.
Trump's tweet read, "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!"
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2020
According to The Sun's article, many accounts had made allegations that the president's use of the word "together" was not that at all - they believe it means "to get her" hinting that he was in the process of trying to arrest his former rival. Apparently, QAnon followers believe that the arrest of Trump's "deep state enemies" will occur when the president is isolated for the treatment of a virus they believe is fake.
The publication revealed what the QAnon followers are feeling, with one saying, "My hype levels are dangerously high right now" while others claimed that the president had taken hydroxychloroquine and therefore could not have contracted the virus. Of course, it is also important to note that hydroxychloroquine is not a drug used to help prevent people from contracting the virus regardless of what the QAnon conspiracy theorists say. Trump has offhandedly promoted the drug ignoring the fact that the FDA has cautioned against its use.
Rolling Stone further reported a quote by Travis View, co-host of the QAnon Anonymous podcast that explores this conspiracy theory. He said, “They believe the real reason he is in quarantine is to isolate him away from the evil deep state plotters so the storm can commence, and no one can reach him once the shit hits the fan, and when the mass arrests start he will be protected. So of course this plays into the ‘nothing as it seems’ component of conspiracist thinking.”
These bizarre allegations aside, POTUS is doing reportedly well considering his recent diagnosis. Chief of Staff Mark Meadows revealed at a press conference that the president has "mild" symptoms with Senator Lindsey Graham further adding that Trump "sounded good." It was also recently reported that the president was taken to the well equipped Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday night to be treated for the coronavirus.
