On the January 7 edition of Newsmax’s Stinchfield, host Grant Stinchfield brought QAnon conspiracy theorist DeAnna Lorraine on his program. Lorraine, who till December had been hosting a show on Infowars, has a long record of promoting outlandish conspiracy theories, including speculation that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is an alien.
During her appearance on Newsmax prime time, Lorraine called the insurrectionists who stormed the U.S. Capitol “patriots” who were fighting a “foreign, hostile takeover” of the country. She went on to claim that all violence at the Capitol was caused by law enforcement against the rioters.
Stinchfield previously defended the QAnon conspiracy theory by blatantly mischaracterizing it.
