Security personnel at Donald Trump’s rally on Friday night in Wilmington, North Carolina tried to get MAGA-loving supporters to lower their raised arms and some finger, signifying their allegiance to the far-right conspiracy theory QAnon. “Confirmed with people at Trump rally holding up 1 finger that they meant it as a symbol of QAnon’s ‘Where We Go One We Go All’,” PBS News correspondent Lisa Desjardins tweeted from the event. “Security personnel here fanned out and told people to take their fingers down.” The reporter noted that she had spoken to a rally-goer who raised a finger that suggested “WWG1WGA” and who was “furious” at being told to lower his arm. “That’s my Constitutional Right!” the rally-goer told Desjardins. A Trump spokesperson did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment Friday night. The rally controversy follows Trump sharing a video post on Truth Social late Thursday night “full of references” to QAnon. A longtime Trump adviser told The Daily Beast on Friday: “Q things are so bizarre,” adding that Trump sees it as a “controversial” media topic and an opportunity to “provoke outrage.”
