Tiny Group of QAnon Supporters Spotted in D.C. Awaiting Trump Inauguration

A handful of QAnon followers turned up at the Capitol on March 4 believing that Donald Trump would be inaugurated.

At least four supporters of the radical movement gathered in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, hoping to see evidence of a swearing-in ceremony of their savior-like figure.

The small group were identified by Reuters as Karyn Carson, John Carson, Lois Houser and Matthew Giannini.

John and Karyn Carson said they even took time off work and traveled all the way from California to witness what they thought would be a historic day for QAnon.

"Every day that we're here, we'll probably come out around noon and see if anything transpires," Karyn Carson 52, told Reuters.

"If it doesn't happen, we'll obviously be sad because it didn't happen while we were here, but we believe that it will happen. It just hasn't happened yet."

The March 4 date was being widely promoted by the radical movement as the day Trump would make his triumphant return after losing to Joe Biden in November's election.

The theory was discussed for weeks prior to March 4 and began circulating among the QAnon community after Biden's inauguration on January 20—where the conspiracy theorists believed that Trump would order the mass arrests and executions of satanic pedophiles.

Following fears there would be a repeat of the violence seen at the January 6 insurrection, which QAnon supporters were a part of, thousands of National Guards troops remained in D.C. for March 4, with Capitol Police also confirming they would be increasing security that day.

Prior to the date, a number of influential QAnon figures distanced themselves for March 4 and urged people to attend D.C. that day, claiming the theory is not a true belief from the movement and instead a "false flag" operation by the media and left-wing protesters.

After March 4 failed to materialize, other prominent QAnon advocates condemned the "shills" who promoted the day which they say was never truly part of their lore.

Others have already suggested March 20 is the next significant date for QAnon, undeterred, as always, by yet another failed prediction.

Speaking to Reuters, the Carsons said they believe the military will restore Trump to power by the end of March. John Carson, 58, admitted that is theory from "our own assumption as to what really should happen and probably will happen," rather than any pointing to evidence which has suggested this.

"It may seem foolish to some people that we came all this way to see something that may or may not happen, but we don't care," Karyn Carson added.
