QAnon followers struggle to explain Biden inauguration

Some QAnon followers are losing hope in the conspiracy as yet another one of its predictions – that Donald Trump would remain president and arrest top Democrats for their participation in child trafficking rings – failed to pass.

Users across multiple forums and chat rooms spent the morning spinning up new theories about how Wednesday, dubbed the “Great Awakening,” would still turn out how the theory had predicted.

But as President Biden’s inauguration continued without incidence, reality began to set in for some of QAnon’s most ardent supporters.

That’s not to say the theory is losing any significant steam though – deflections and new explanation quickly emerged after Biden was sworn in.
