Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, dismissed the QAnon movement Sunday, saying it’s an issue Americans aren’t familiar with and don’t care about.
QAnon is a baseless far-right conspiracy theory that claims President Donald Trump is secretly fighting a “deep state” cabal of satanic pedophiles and cannibals.
“It’s something the voters are not even thinking about,” McDaniel said on ABC News’ “This Week” Sunday, when asked if she’d condemn QAnon.
“It’s a fringe group,” she added. “It’s not part of our party. The vice president said, ‘I dismiss it out of hand.’ The president said, ‘You know what, I don’t know anything about this group.'”
“But of course you’re going to ask me about that,” McDaniel said to “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos. “Because it has absolutely nothing to do with this election. Antifa is burning down cities right now.”
Last year, the FBI designated QAnon as a domestic-terrorism group, saying it’s filled with “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists” and citing it as a growing threat.
McDaniel suggested that voters are not concerned about QAnon and would rather focus on developments concerning the upcoming coronavirus stimulus package.
