He’s just the latest in Trump’s circle to flirt with the conspiracy.
For the past few months, members in and around the Trump administration have danced with the QAnon conspiracy, mostly like accidentally, since the far-right conspiracy that once was confined to the bowels of the internet can now be found just about everywhere.
Now, President Trump’s lawyer got in on the act. Rudy Giuliani retweeted a meme-heavy video of Trump, which included three popular Q phrases: Patriots Awakened, Anons, and #WWG1WGA, which stands for “where we go one, we go all.” The account that shared the video also included the same #WWG1WGA in their profile.

While it’s likely that Giuliani, who is as unsavvy a Twitter user as there is, wasn’t aware of the greater significance of the account and the hashtags, Q fans on Twitter, as they do with everything, took it as A SIGN.

Thank you for supporting the only POTUS in 30 years who actually gives a damn about our country. #PatriotsUnited

Q has yet to post about the tacit endorsement from Giuliani.
