‘Rove is a DINIER of DINIERS’: Trump Misspellings Start Flurry of Q-Anon Conspiracies
Q-Anon followers are famous for reading between the lines. An intentionally misspelled word is often seen as a covert signal
Q-Anon followers are famous for reading between the lines. An intentionally misspelled word is often seen as a covert signal or coded message, and Donald Trump has long been considered the vehicle of such messages in the past.
Ever since Trump lost the 2020 election, with Q no longer posting and the furor dying down, it seemed like the wild conspiracy theories were on the wane.
Enter: an embarrassing misspelling by the former POTUS which has now re-lit the bonfires of speculation.

Trying to Distract from Disastrous Nick Fuentes Dinner, Trump’s Flurry of Truth Posts Make Him Look Desperate
Right now, Trump is hoping to get people to focus on anything but the ill-fated dinner he had with avowed white supremacist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, and controversial rapper and avowed antisemite Kanye West.
As such, he’s been furiously posting on Truth Social over the past few days.
Instead of looking like a man who’s controlling the narrative, though, it looks like someone who’s hoping to distract people from what he’s doing under the table. Or in this case, at the dinner table.
One such post, however, may have had the intended effect – just not among the people he hoped he would distract.
Trump’s most ardent followers overlap heavily with those who follow the Q-Anon conspiracy theories. Ever since Trump lost the election, Q has been silent and no longer dropping packets of information that formerly whipped his (or her) followers into a frenzy on the regular.
One could almost assume that the era of Q had passed. Until a typo or misspelling from Trump re-lit the flames of speculation.
Trump wrote on Tuesday, “RINO Karl Rove, a man with a losing record the likes of which few political operatives would be able to get away with, including his loss to me in 2016, fights so hard and so stupidly, but is constantly on Fox News and the once great Wall Street Journal, explaining how things should be done – and he doesn’t have a clue.”
He added, “People can’t stand him, a clone of even more unpopular Paul Ryan, who sadly runs Fox News, now on a very bad path. Rove is a DINIER of DINIERS, which makes him a fool. WATCH!”
“Dinier” is of course a misspelling – the word is “denier.”
In the comments of the post and elsewhere on the internet, people immediately began speculating.
One follower replied, “Dinier/Diniers mis-spelled. Does that mean anything? Probably not a typo since it is done twice….”
Other followers quickly brushed it off as a typo or autocorrect, but the original responder added, “Makes sense. Just question everything these days….”
And Q followers are having fun with it elsewhere on the internet too, thinking perhaps it’s the long-awaited return to Q info drops that they’ve been hoping for.
In Q world, Trump delivers coded messages to loyal patriots in his quest to destroy a cabal of child predators running the world. Followers used to pour over his Twitter posts, looking for hints and directives. Such directives, many January 6 defendants claim, are exactly why they traveled to Washington DC to storm the Capitol.
One of Trump’s most famous “Q-Anon directives” came when he was asked during a presidential debate to disavow white supremacists, and he instead told them to “stand back and stand by.”
Q followers and white supremacists quickly replied all over the internet that they were in fact “standing by” and ready for orders.
In the real world, he’s a 76-year-old man who is known for typos. Remember COVFEFE?
The Trump Showdown with Mitch McConnell

This week has been an uncomfortable one for Trump, who is finally getting backlash from even some of his most stalwart supporters after the dinner with Fuentes.
A number of once-allies have blasted him, including his former runningmate and Vice President Mike Pence who said, “President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table. I think he should apologize for it, and he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric without qualification.”
Former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo agrees, tweeting, “Anti-Semitism is a cancer. As Secretary, I fought to ban funding for anti-Semitic groups that pushed BDS.
We stand with the Jewish people in the fight against the world’s oldest bigotry.”
And Senator Mitch McConnell, one of the GOP’s most powerful voices, issued a rare public rebuke, saying, “There is no room in the Republican Party for antisemitism or White supremacy. And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States.”
Trump, of course, called McConnell a “loser” but begrudgingly stepped about an inch away from the disastrous meeting, writing on Truth, “I had never heard of the man — I had no idea what his views were, and they weren’t expressed at the table in our very quick dinner, or it wouldn’t have been accepted.”
It’s a truly lackluster response and aligns with reports from those close to Trump that he won’t disavow white supremacists because he’s afraid of alienating too much of his loyal base.
And considering the fact that Trump’s security detail have to vet every visitor, it’s also probably a bold-faced lie.
But it’s the latest in a stand-off between establishment Republicans and Trump, whose MAGA brand is now seen as more of a liability than an election-winning strategy.
