It’s Time for the Media to Cover Donald Trump as the Messiah of the QAnon Cult

The MAGA movement that Donald Trump started has always had the the most disturbing and dangerous attributes of a religious cult. It’s leader demands unflinching devotion. It’s followers declare unwavering loyalty. And most importantly, the flock is taught that only the leader will tell them the truth, and that everyone else is lying to them.

Donald Trump Messiah

That’s the only explanation for how the MAGA Minions can buy into the preposterous scenarios spun by Trump in his messianic quest for power. Trump requires his disciples to believe that he won the 2020 Presidential election by a landslide – and that evil Democrats and traitorous Republicans stole his victory – despite never having been able to provide a shred of evidence. He insists that he’s innocent of a multitude of crimes – from bank and tax fraud, to extorting the president of Ukraine, to inciting the January 6th insurrection, to hoarding national security documents at Mar-a-Lago and lying to the FBI about it – despite abundant evidence of his guilt.

In recent weeks the shape of Trump’s political activities have advanced beyond the mere appearance of cult behavior. He is now fully embracing the associated ultra-rightist confederacy of crackpots known as QAnon. These are freakazoids who believe that Democrats are Satanic pedophiles bent on destroying America and can only be vanquished by Trump and his anointed-by-God warriors. Sadly, that army is currently populated by much of the Republican Party.

At first Trump tip-toed into the QAnon swamp with subtle allusions to their doctrine and symbolism. But last week he made the connection unmistakably explicit. Amidst a flurry of fanatical postings on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, Trump included some unambiguous invocations to QAnon. For instance, he posted a picture of Christ with the caption “Jesus is the Greatest. President @realDonaldTrump is the second greatest.”

That’s precisely what the QAnon-sense followers profess. And it elevates Trump from a politician to a deity. Another example was Trump’s posting of video that contained multiple references to QAnon through its iconography and slogans…

Given Trump’s deep dive into this mystical madness, it no longer makes sense for the media to cover Trump as a political figure. He is promoting himself as a religious leader and aligning himself with people who regard him as their savior. It is what the pseudo-scriptural phrase “make America great again” really means. Trump and his devotees (aka the Republican Party) define it as the greatness of divinity. And they intend to follow him to heaven, even if it means waging a civil war. Or more accurately from their perspective, the war of Armageddon.
