Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., blasted the QAnon conspiracy theory as “nuts.”
According to The Washington Post, Sasse’s comments came a day after President Donald Trump gave a major boost to the theory.
The theory is centered on the baseless belief that Trump is waging a secret campaign against enemies in the "deep state" and a child sex trafficking ring run by satanic pedophiles and cannibals.
Trump on Wednesday said he appreciated QAnon followers’ support and called them “people that love our country.”
But Sasse noted: “Real leaders call conspiracy theories conspiracy theories.”
“If Democrats take the Senate, blow up the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court — garbage like this will be a big part of why they won.”
