CNN's Chris Cuomo promoted an insane conspiracy theory on Wednesday night, suggesting that President Donald Trump was cultivating a base that believes in a conspiracy theory and that he was secretly sending messages to people who believe in the conspiracy theory.
Cuomo floated the idea that Trump supporters who believe in the "QAnon" conspiracy theory could be looking for cryptic messages in Trump's tweets and that it is possible the president could be sending secret messages through his tweets to communicate with fringe elements of his base.
Conservative Review notes that "QAnon is an anonymous online figure (or possibly figures) who maintain claims to a top-level security clearance and pertinent information on the deep state and administration."
Cuomo tweeted out a clip in all caps from his CNN segment on the conspiracy theory:
During the segment, Cuomo said that Trump has had people at his rallies that are looking for the number "17" because "Q" is the 17th letter in the alphabet and that a "17" he included in a recent tweet could be viewed as a sign by some of his supporters.
