For four straight years, it’s felt like a day can’t go by without a new breathtaking outrage from President Trump and his rabid supporters. The avatar of humanity’s disgrace, Trump is a man entirely without redeeming quality whose only competence lies in bringing out the worst impulses in other people and getting them to abase themselves to his level.
That much is obvious in the behavior of his QAnon cult following, who took to social media en masse to harass celebrity Chrissy Teigen after she bravely shared the story of her tragic miscarriage on Twitter.

It took a great deal of courage for Teigen to share her moment of intimate grief and incalculable sorrow with a world that still stigmatizes miscarriage; and that courage is compounded by the response that she knew she would receive.
The “QAnon” cultists believe that Chrissy Teigen and her husband, singer-songwriter John Legend, are part of the secret, Satanic pedophile cabal of Hollywood celebrities and Democratic politicians that has sex with children and ritually sacrifices them to harvest a psychedelic drug called “adrenochrome.” Teigen has been falsely accused of being linked to billionaire pedophile Jeffery Epstein (who Trump is extremely closely connected to) and is the subject of photoshopped images depicting her on Epstein’s notorious private plane (which Trump actually flew on).
QAnon followers came out in force to gloat over her loss in one of the vilest displays of dehumanizing partisan hatred of the Trump era. They were joined by your garden-variety conservative Christian men, who somehow thought this was an appropriate moment to make a point about abortion.
THIS HAS TO BE STAGED! NO WAY SOMEONE WILL TWEET ABOUT THIS HOURS AFTER IT HAPPENED. I THINK THIS IS A DISTRACTION FROM ALL THAT EPSTEIN THING. #SaveOurChildren

I feel sorry for the baby. PEDO Chrissy Teigen gets absolutely NO SYMPATHY from me. She refers to babies as clumps of cells and she is on someone’s flight logs. She can rot.

Its either a “baby” – a unique, living, human being
Its just a clump of cells
Its reality doesnt change based on the mothers plans for it
The absolutely heart wrenching post by Chrissy Teigen – about her “baby” – is EXACTLY why we’ve been shouting that abortion is wrong pic.twitter.com/JXSSTB9GWh

Chrissy Teigen's Baby Was Pronounced Dead 3 Minutes After Midnight On The Night Of A Full Moon On October 1st.
If That Doesn't Scream Satanic Ritual Sacrifice I Don't Know What Does.

Chrissy Teigen left the hospital without a baby because she sacrificed it on an altar. Now they broke twitter to suppress it! pic.twitter.com/FgEDqLuSID

Chrissy Teigen loses her baby. In response, Whitlock beginsJust Asking Questions about whether her posts is just more social media posturing. QAnon followers have been bombarding Teigen all day, and so naturally, Whitlock himself shared QAnon-adjacent bullshit. pic.twitter.com/S97GFTLTHV

The SAME media & celebrities on the left who are virtue signally about how sorry they are that Chrissy Teigen lost a child during pregnancy complications, are the same Media & celebrities who tell us that Abortion is perfectly fine.

It does not bode well for the future that such a significant portion of our population believes this entirely baseless conspiracy theory that somehow centers Donald Trump as some kind of political genius and sanctified defender of children — or that Donald Trump himself refuses to condemn them.
