Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Friday blasted President Trump for refusing to condemn the QAnon conspiracy theory, saying adherents to the theory should get a mental health checkup before the president dismantles ObamaCare.
“I’ve been a big supporter of mental health,” Biden said. “I recommend the people that believe [QAnon] should take advantage while it still exists in the Affordable Care Act. It’s bizarre, totally bizarre.”
The president has declined to condemn the conspiracy theory, which holds that Trump and his supporters are warriors in a secret effort to uncover child sex rings led by global elites.
The FBI has deemed the loose network of QAnon adherents as a domestic terror threat following incidents in which the conspiracy theory appears to have fueled real-world violence.
