Jeb Bush and Karl Rove Slam Trump for Not Disavowing QAnon Conspiracy

Two prominent Republicans called on Donald Trump to denounce the QAnon conspiracy theory after he appeared to offer praise for people who believe it and support him.

The President was asked about the conspiracy theory, which is a complex and convoluted mix of Satanic panic, Antisemitism and bizarre theories about Trump himself.

I’ve heard these are people that love our country. So I don’t know really anything about it other than they do supposedly like me,” Trump said of QAnon believers.

I’ve heard these are people who love our country,” he said.

Former Florida Governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush expressed dismay at Trump’s refusal to denounce the movement on Twitter.

Why in the world would the President not kick Q’anon supporters’ butts?” Bush tweeted.

“Nut jobs, rascists, haters have no place in either Party.”
