After Trump Praises QAnon, Pence Pretends Trump Never Did It

Vice President Mike Pence dismissed the conspiracy theorist group QAnon one day after President Donald Trump said: “I heard that these are people that love our country.”

Trump said on Aug. 20 he had not heard much about the QAnon movement “other than I understand they like me very much.”

Pence told “CBS This Morning” on Aug. 21 that he was not going to be “spending time on a major network to talk about some conspiracy online theory… I don’t know anything about QAnon, and I dismiss it out of hand.”

Pence told CNN host John Berman that the president has never “embraced” QAnon.

However, the Associated Press notes: “Trump has retweeted QAnon-promoting accounts, and shirts and hats with QAnon symbols.”

Pence also tried to gaslight Berman: “I don’t know anything about that conspiracy theory, John.”

Berman replied: “How can you not know about it given it’s so much in the news?”

Pence continued to gaslight: “Honestly, John, I just — I don’t know anything about that. I have heard about it, we dismiss conspiracy theories around here.”
