Trump’s Favorite QAnon Nutbag Banned From Twitter

Complex reports:

Bill Mitchell, the far-right conspiracy theorist was permanently banned from the platform after he attempted to dodge a temporary ban over an undisclosed violation. Per a Twitter spokesperson: “[Mitchell’s account] has been permanently suspended for violating the Twitter Rules by using one account to evade the suspension of another account.”

Mitchell, the host of the far-right program YourVoice America is mostly known as a Donald Trump toadie who uses his platform to propagate the QAnon conspiracy theory.

He’s faced increasing backlash over the last several months due to his coronavirus-denial claims and accusing Dr. Anthony Fauci of being a “plant” from Hilary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

The Daily Beast reports:

Mitchell had more than half a million followers and was frequently retweeted by President Trump. He spread the discredited theory that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump’s phones during the 2016 campaign and has been outspoken in his support of QAnon, which believes that Trump is secretly working to arrest a cabal of Democratic and elite pedophiles. Mitchell hosts a podcast but, until his ban, was most active on Twitter and would often send several hundred tweets a day.
