Jerome Corsi, a right-wing “journalist” for the conspiracy theory website Infowars, is now spending literally hours every day on a YouTube livechat devoted to “decoding” posts from “QAnon,” an anonymous 8Chan forum board poster whom some right-wing activists believe to be a high-ranking official within the Trump administration.
Corsi was online yesterday when the official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were released, and like so many others on the Right, he saw something nefarious in the paintings, asserting that the foliage and flowers in Barack Obama’s portrait were a symbol of “the pedophilia that they’re engaging in.”
“That is one of the weirdest presidential portraits I have ever seen,” Corsi said. “It’s a bizarre picture.”
“It’s a reference to the loss of virginity in terms of a physical sense,” he added. “It’s a very physical reference to loss of virginity … This whole elite globalist pedophilia is a major theme that Q continues to remind us underlies a lot of these globalists that we are dealing with. The fact that they are sitting on flowers and the deflowering could be easily an image of the pedophilia that they’re engaging in or the slavery pedophilia, you know, tend your gardens everybody, their slave gardens.”
