Right-wing crackpot Bill Mitchell told his viewers that they should trust the Q Anon conspiracies because they help build confidence in Trump and thus will help him win again in 2020. He basically said that Trump should not be questioned by those who don’t understand his three-dimensional political chess game.
“What Q is trying to do is motivate and encourage the base by—what is their hashtag? ‘Trust the plan,’” Mitchell said. “What’s the alternative to that? Question and doubt everything Donald Trump does? Constantly attack Donald Trump from all these different sides? Every time he makes a move that you in your linear small mind don’t understand, that he in his strategic mind is setting up the board for a win, but you don’t get it; he sacrifices his knight because he’s planning checkmating your king in five moves, but all of a sudden you go out there and you’re freaking out and pulling an Ann Coulter on him, is that what we should be doing?”
“Would that make it better?” Mitchell bellowed. “Would that be a better world? Would that make us more MAGA? What do you want? What do you want? They’re like, ‘Oh, they’re lulling us into a false sense of confidence’—by giving you confidence in Trump, that Trump has got a plan to know what the hell he’s doing in all this? How does that lull anybody into a false sense of confidence? That is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard in the world.”
“Nobody is stupid enough to really believe that,” he concluded.
Notice that he doesn’t say you should trust Q Anon because those conspiracies are true or accurate, underscoring yet again that the truth is irrelevant in Trumpworld. The only thing that matters is whether it’s useful.
