I’m always saying there are two narratives in this country running side by side, the mainstream press and the right-wing alternative reality. This is literally the truth. Anybody who thinks it’s metaphor, you’re wrong. We have two different information eco systems, each offering a different version of truth.
In right-wing world, it is a possibility that Michael Flynn could become the next director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. And in the real world, if this society decides to self-immolate — again — and elect Donald Trump, then yes, a pardoned felon could probably head the FBI.
To that end, listen to this tale of how Flynn is playing mind games both with QAnon and obviously with the rest of the American people. The intriguing thing here is that the right-wingers have no problem at all with the fact that Flynn is lying in order to get what he wants, which is the directorship of the FBI. That’s totally fine in their book.
QAnon conspiracy theorist Dave Hayes says that Michael Flynn is only pretending to denounce QAnon because he wants to be FBI director if Trump is reelected: "Whatever Flynn is saying publicly, you should just ignore it because it's part of a psychological operation." pic.twitter.com/WdN4Gp0NC8

He does say to “ignore Mike Flynn” and I concur with that. You can’t go wrong doing that.
This is coming from the group that depends upon Donald Trump getting back in the White House so he can call a wrap on Joe Biden’s pretend presidency, done on a movie set replica of the premises at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The problem with that, of course, is if QAnon legend is true and Trump still really is the president, then how can he be running in 2024, because that would be for a third term, right?
They don’t have very good answers to this particular conundrum, when posed, so don’t expect too much in the way of an answer.
But all of them would be just fine if Trump was president for life — and perhaps beyond. Perhaps reign from a spaceship in the sky.
MAGA and QAnon is for people who have given up on life.
