Brian Williams Calls QAnon Followers Waiting For JFK Jr. In Dallas 'Circus of Lost Souls'

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams has called out the QAnon followers in Dallas, Texas, branding them a "circus of lost souls."

'The 11th Hour' host Williams turned his attention to the dozens of QAnon followers who had gathered once again at Dealey Plaza, the site of John F. Kennedy's assassination, during a segment called "Delusion in Dallas."

During the segment, Williams told viewers not to pity "cult members, or conspiracy theorists" and instead told them to focus it on the Kennedy and Bessette families.

JFK Sr. and Bobby Kennedy were both assassinated, while John F. Kennedy Jr. died in a plane crash in 1999.

The younger Kennedy's wife, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and his sister-in-law, Lauren Bessette, also died in the plane crash.

Williams said: "They lost their modern-era patriarch, the President of the United States to assassination, his brother to assassination and the son of the President of the United States to a plane crash.

"Let us also remember the Bessette family, they lost two daughters when that plane crashed [and] you don't get over that.

"You learn to wake up the next day and the day after that and, hopefully, keep on living some semblance of a life. The Kennedy and Bessette families deserve our respect and our sorrow after their staggering loss.

"They do not deserve the circus of lost souls that is now soiling the sacred place in American Presidential history."

Williams' comments come as the QAnon followers in Dallas waited for JFK Jr. to reveal himself and announce Donald Trump as the true President of the United States—something they did earlier this month.

Despite the prediction once again failing to come true, dozens of QAnon followers held a candlelight vigil for JFK Sr. later that evening.

The group then placed the candles into the shape of the letter Q and shared images and videos of themselves on their social media accounts for the 58th anniversary of JFK's assassination.

On Twitter, the hashtag #CIAKilledJFK trended in the U.S., which promoted the conspiracy theory that the agency had a role in the high-profile assassination.

Media Matters for America senior researcher Alex Kaplan said Twitter account @gumby4christ had pushed the hashtag to be shared online.

The tweet, shared yesterday, was liked on more than 3,600 times and retweeted on more than 900 occasions.

JFK Sr. was assassinated by former marine Lee Harvey Oswald in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963.

But, the circumstances surrounding his death have been questioned by conspiracy theorists who have claimed at different times that government officials, the Soviet Union or even his Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson were behind the killing.
