QAnon believers gather in Texas waiting for JFK Jr (who is dead) to appear and become Trump’s vice president

This Monday, a large group of adherents to the QAnon conspiracy theory gathered at the AT&T Discovery Plaza in Dallas, Texas. According to journalist Steven Monacelli, some in the group were expecting to see an appearance by John F. Kennedy, Jr., who most sane people know died in 1999 as a result of a plane crash.

But according to QAnoners, JFK Jr. is still alive, and will head the Donald Trump-led operation to take down the “deep state.”

Other reports say the potential appearance of JFK Jr. would signal that the process of reinstating Trump in the White House has begun.

“Trump reinstated as 19th president calls up a new vice president, JFK Junior” wrote a prominent QAnon influencer with over 250,000 followers on Telegram.“Trump will step down. John will become President.”

From Rolling Stone:

The renaissance of JFK Jr. is an increasingly popular cornerstone of the QAnon conspiracy theory, though it has historically been something of a fringe belief in the movement. The theory postulates that JFK Jr. has been in hiding for years and will eventually reveal himself as Trump’s running mate for the 2024 election, a belief that stems from a poster claiming to be JFK Jr. who contributed to an 8chan thread in 2018.

This Tuesday, the group still remained at the plaza, but were met with rainfall. According to Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Williams, most of the group left the area, but plan to attend another gathering at Tuesday night’s Rolling Stones concert at the Cotton Bowl.
