#QAnon #PrayingMedic #TrustThePlan
In an interview with Dan Duval, Praying Medic (David Hayes) was deflecting criticism of QAnon following the firing of Jeff Sessions, in particular the Q slogan to “trust the plan.” In this effort, Hayes suggested that Q followers trust the plan in the same way they trust God.
The statement highlights the cult techniques that are used to hold on to QAnon followers despite repeated failures at predictions and flawed characterizations of deep state actors within the Trump Administration.
