So this happened:
I didn’t understand the significance of the salute, I thought it was some sort of ersatz Nazi thing. The NYTimes is here to school us:
Former President Donald Trump appeared to more fully embrace QAnon on Saturday, playing a song at a political rally in Ohio that prompted attendees to respond with a salute in reference to the cultlike conspiracy theory’s theme song.
As Mr. Trump spoke, scores of people in the crowd raised fingers in the air in an apparent reference to the ‘1’ in what they thought was the song’s title. It was the first time in the memory of some Trump aides that such a display had occurred at one of his rallies.
Remember Aaron Rupar talking about the weird music? Yup, it was about Q. That orange moron has gone full Q-spiracy, or is at least stoking it.
