Trump’s admission that he got the booster makes QAnon cultists sad: ‘Trump was great, but not anymore’

During a segment on his speaking tour with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly this Sunday, former President Donald Trump admitted that he got the booster shot for covid.

“Did you get the booster?” O’Reilly asked Trump.

“Yes. I got it too,” Trump replied, followed by a chorus of boos from the audience.

“Don’t, don’t, don’t,” Trump said, rebuking those who booed him. “That’s alright, it’s a very tiny group over there.”

According to a report from Newsweek, Trump’s comment sparked a wave of confusion from the QAnon sphere, as evidenced by various posts on the messaging app Telegram.

“I believe the end will explain the middle. But, we are all to think for ourselves and most of you guys are still with me on this vax crap,” wrote one QAnon influencer with over 50,000 followers. “If we are confused by Pres Trump’s comments, I’m sure Deep State is. Maybe he would be a danger to society arrested otherwise idk [I don’t know] but I’m gonna continue locally and here doing what we all must every day.”

The influencer then posted a poll asking followers, “Now that President Trump had a booster, are you comfortable taking the vax and boosters?” Out of 18,000 respondents, 97 percent said “no,” one percent said “yes,” and two percent replied, “I don’t know.”

Another influencer known as QAnon John did his best to rationalize Trump’s words.

“Knowing what we know. Whenever POTUS 45 promotes something, the other side does the total opposite. They get disgusted by that thing. Trump derangement still runs deep. Trump still says that those who don’t want the vax should not be forced to take it. That is the most important thing he said. The messaging here is clear,” QAnon John, wh0se real name is John Sabal, wrote. “Imagine for one second what would happen if Trump all of a sudden started to backtrack on the vax. Operation Warp Speed was necessary for reasons I already discussed. He would lose all credibility with those who took the jab. It would be political suicide for him.”

But as Newsweek points out, many of the commenters on Sabal’s post weren’t so charitable.

“[Trump] was great, but he’s not anymore,” one commenter wrote.
