After President Donald Trump praised a QAnon acolyte on winning a House primary election in Georgia, a Republican congressman emphatically condemned the wacky conspiracy theory group on Wednesday.
Kinzinger was almost certainly referring to Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican candidate for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, who Trump congratulated earlier in the day as “a real WINNER” and “future Republican star.”
Beyond Greene’s support for QAnon, she also has a history of odious comments that have caused other Republicans to distance themselves from her.
Qanon is a fabrication. This “insider” has predicted so much incorrectly (but people don’t remember PAST predictions) so now has switched to vague generalities. Could be Russian propaganda or a basement dweller. Regardless, no place in Congress for these conspiracies.
