QAnon Believers See a Promise in Trump’s Game of Thrones Poster (Because of Course)

President Donald Trump assembled his cabinet yesterday around a table that featured a parody poster depicting himself and reading “Sanctions are Coming,” a play on a tagline from the HBO series “Game of Thrones” that declares “Winter is Coming.” Kellyanne Conway took to cable news shows this morning to try her best to provide some needed political spin on the poster stunt after it was widely mocked in the press.

Trump had previously tweeted the parody poster on November 2.

For reasons that remain unclear, the dates on the poster in the White House Cabinet Room and the Twitter post are not the same. That’s where the QAnon believers come in.

QAnon is a conspiracy theory built on the foundational supposition that someone with high-level security clearance is steadily leaking out riddles that, once decoded, provide insights into Trump’s behind-the-scenes work dismantling a satanic pedophile ring that spans the globe and involves top Democratic officials. Upon that foundation, countless new conspiracy theories and crossovers with existing theories have been erected.

Jordan Sather is a YouTube creator heading up a channel called “Destroying the Illusion” that boasts more than 170,000 subscribers, with whom Sather shares his conspiracy theories. For more than a year, the QAnon conspiracy theory has sat at the forefront of Sather’s videos, each one growing more far-fetched than the next. Sather also believes that the government is covering up information about extraterrestrial life because doing so would expose the pedophiles that the deep state is supposedly protecting. He appeared on Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show” last year to vouch for the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Yesterday, Sather uploaded a video and a corresponding tweet claiming that Trump’s “Game of Thrones” poster stunt was a secret message to QAnon believers that can only be decoded by reading prior Q posts.

“In this tweet, it says ‘Sanctions are Coming, November 5th.’ The date on [the poster in the cabinet meeting] says November 4th. Huh. Why the day off?” Sather said.

He then referenced a tweet that surmised that Trump was attempting to direct attention to a November 4, 2018, post from Q featuring parody movie posters that QAnon followers believe contain promises to take down pedophiles hiding in plain sight. On November 4, 2018, there were 17 different Q posts shared on 8Chan.

“With this poster on his desk during the cabinet meeting, [it’s] quite obviously a message to all of us, everybody, anons and public alike, that some shit is about to drop. Most definitely. It’s going to be a good year, right? Good year,” Sather said.

When Right Wing Watch asked Sather if he would elaborate to us on what exactly he thought was going to happen in a direct message on Twitter, Sather simply responded “Nah.”
