Trump conspiracists believe he included a hidden message in Comey letter

The denizens of Reddit’s Donald Trump-focused subreddit, r/the_donald, are the president’s most slavish devotees, referring to Trump himself as a “God-Emperor” who they believe is as infallible as their own maker.

Naturally, this leads the group of Trump stans to search for higher meaning in any of his actions, ascribing awe-inducing powers to the man, regardless of any plausibility. Thus, you constantly see Trump’s nonsensical behaviors explained away by him playing sixth-dimensional, multiverse-spanning chess, and you get a thing like this:


There, the first letter of the first, fifth, sixth, and seventh line spell “I win.”

I win.

Did Trump secretly plant that not-technically-an-acrostic acrostic in his letter firing Comey? It’s possible. But once you start seeing one thing, it’s certainly possible to see a bevy of other secret messages Trump may have been delivering.

So was Trump sending Comey one final boast? Or was he revealing an autoimmune disease he has?

We may never know.
