Former U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday said his successor, Donald Trump, is a “symptom” and an “accelerant” of misinformation to American society, bred by the conservative media infrastructure.
Obama, who was speaking during a podcast interview with two of his former aides, Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, said that although the “conservative media infrastructure” existed before Trump took office, he has allowed “insane” conspiracy theories, like QAnon, infiltrate the mainstream Republican Party.
Classed as a potential source of domestic terrorism by the FBI, QAnon is driven by an anonymous internet poster nicknamed Q who claims to be a Trump administration insider. The core, nonsensical claim is that Trump is secretly leading a crackdown against an enormous pedophile ring that includes prominent Democrats and the Hollywood elite.
Obama said if fellow Democrat Joe Biden was elected in the Presidential election next month he would have an understanding of what the world expected from American leadership.
