Donald Trump Shares Another Q Conspiracy Quote Suggesting He Let the Country ‘Suffer’ to Prove a Point

This week has been a rough week in the world of Donald Trump.
From the grand jury investigation wrapping up in Georgia targeting Trump’s alleged interference in the 2020 election to a ramping up of efforts by special counsel Jack Smith, the jaws of the law seem to be closing in around the former POTUS.
Trump has gone from screaming rants to cool and ominous this week.
But one video Trump shared on Truth Social has garnered some attention, because it involves a quote from conspiracy-theory peddler “Q-Anon.”
In the video, Donald Trump suggests that he let the country suffer just to prove a point – that he’s the best.
Donald Trump Signal Boosts Q-Anon Again
Once upon a time in a world that seems like another existence entirely, an anonymous person or persons who called themselves Q made regular “info drops” to supporters.
These drops were supposed to reveal a conspiracy among the highest levels of the US government that involved a cabal of pedophiles and blood drinkers running the world.
While pretty much nothing Q promised has come to pass, some people still follow their words like gospel, and Q has always been intrinsically linked to Trump.
In the past, Trump has quoted Q before – both directly and indirectly – but after he lost the election in 2020 and was impeached twice, the Q drops stopped.
So too did Trump’s sharing of Q quotes, for the most part. Every now and then, Trump would again promise a “storm,” which is a Q dog whistle, but for the most part the love affair between the anon conspiracy peddler and Trump cooled considerably.
Therefore it’s always a surprise when a new Q quote pops back up on Trump’s socials.
This time, the Q quote was featured in a video clip of Trump speaking about the 2020 election.
Whoever created the video pasted the Q quote, “Sometimes you can’t tell the public the truth. YOU MUST SHOW THEM. ONLY THEN WILL PEOPLE FIND THE WILL TO CHANGE. It had to be this way. This is not another 4-year election. GOD WINS. -Q”.
The video shared to Truth Social shows Trump speaking in front of a rally, and he tells his supporters, “I flew in with some of our great Congressmen who we’re going to introduce in a second, and I said to them, ‘Congressmen, what do you think? I can straighten it out fast, should we just go in?'”
Here Trump seems to be suggesting calling up the military to overturn the 2020 election results, but it’s what he said next in the context of the Q quote that is drawing ire online.
Quoting the congressman, Trump continued, “‘No sir, let it simmer for a little while. Let people see what radical left Democrats will do to our country.'”
Bearing in mind the fact that Trump believes that what Democrats “will do” to the country would be a disaster, he was admitting to throwing the country under the bus so people could see how much better he was as President.
Donald Trump and the ‘You’ll See How Good You Had It’ Mentality
Trump’s approach here while blunt and disturbing is not surprising.
It’s a common tactic in relationships where there are unequal power dynamics for the person with more power to hold their superiority over the other: “look how good you have it with me, if you leave you’ll suffer and you’ll come back when you see.”
Trump has always treated his presidency like a relationship, feeling personally offended when it doesn’t go his way and speaking of it in possessive terms.
But any time a president (even former) signal boosts a dangerous conspiracy theorist, it’s worth taking notes – even after years of the same.
This week has brought a whirlwind of activity in Washington.
Now, both Trump and President Joe Biden are under investigation for mishandling classified documents. A special counsel who served under Trump has been appointed to look into Biden’s documents mishandlings, and he could soon face the same penalties as Trump.
Special counsel Jack Smith is looking to find where Trump’s legal defense money is coming from, and probing finances going back a few years as he seeks to understand if there was intent to inspire a insurrection and coup, regardless of its lack of success.
Trump has renewed his attacks on Georgia election worker Ruby Freeman, which suggests he believes that the Fulton County DA may soon issue an indictment against him.
All in all, this week has turned to political and private chaos for Trump.
Trump tends to thrive in chaos though, so what happens next is anyone’s guess.
