I find it amazing that a central part of the insane QAnon conspiracy theory is the idea that President Donald Trump will unmask a secret cabal of elites who rape children and drink their blood. Hillary Clinton, who is also a member of the secret cabal along with Oprah and Tom Hanks, is alleged by QAnon lunatics to have cut the face off a child and wore it.

Instead, they assume the women were motivated by money, put up by “the Deep State” or whatever the latest gibberish cooked up by “Q” states. That seems more believable than the fact that their savior has a serious problem with his treatment of women. After all, this is a man that frequently talked about having sex with his daughter!

But the accusation leveled by “Katie Johnson,” the pseudonym for the woman who accused Trump of raping her when she was a child, is pretty credible. Johnson claimed she was invited to a party organized by infamous…
