Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden denounced the QAnon conspiracy theory as “dangerous” and “embarrassing” Friday, suggesting those that support it should seek mental health treatment.
“I’ve been a big supporter of mental health,” Biden said. “I’d recommend the people who believe it maybe should take advantage, while it still exists, of the Affordable Care Act.”
“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.”
