QAnon supporters have acted with dismay and confusion after Donald Trump announced the December dates of his upcoming speaking tour with Bill O'Reilly, which coincides with when he is meant to have already been reinstated as president.
Trump has confirmed the upcoming dates and locations for the events with the former Fox News host in a statement while sharing links for his supporters to buy tickets, which are being sold for at least $100.
According to the statement, Trump and O'Reilly will appear in Sunrise, Florida on December 11, before moving to Orlando on December 12, as well as Houston, Texas on December 18, and ending with Dallas on December 19.
"My tour with Bill O'Reilly is getting a lot of attention, and I'm looking forward to it. Maybe tickets would make a great Father's Day gift? In any event, I'll see you then, and much sooner," Trump said.
The announcement was shared by a number of popular QAnon telegram accounts, one of which has nearly 75,000 subscribers on the encrypted messaging service app.
Supporters of the radical movement expressed concerns that Trump going on a speaking tour later this year surely means that he will not be returning a president—a false claim they have continued to believe since he lost the 2020 election more than seven months ago.
"OK I GUESS MY QUESTION IS TRUMP COMING BACK? WHY WOULD HE BE DOING A TOUR THRU THE END OF THE YEAR WITH O'REILLY. HMMMMMMMMM SOMETHING DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT?," wrote Telegram user Peace Lilly.
"So nothing will happen until December?" added Tina N.
Fellow Telegram user Jack Miller wrote: "Man I sure hope we don't have to wait that long before you're back in office."
Others described the news as "depressing" while one QAnon supporter hoped that the tour announcement "better be a rouse."
QAnon supporters previously believed that Trump would return as president on March 4 based on a wild theory heavily lifted from the sovereign citizen movement. When that prediction failed to come true, as all of them have, they simply moved onto their next hopeful prophecy.
Many QAnon supporters now believe that Trump will return in August—a false claim widely pushed by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell—if the disputed and disregarded audit in Arizona proves there was election fraud that cost him the election.
QAnon suggests the ballot recount in Arizona—which still has not revealed any widespread evidence of fraud after several weeks—will result in a domino effect which will see other states overturn November's election result, paving a way for Trump's return to the White House despite there being no constitutional basis for this to happen.
"So basically the August thing is a bunch of bull because a reinstated President doesn't go on tour," Telegram user Angela Baldwin commented after seeing the dates.
As always, some QAnon supporters are still holding onto the belief that their prediction will come true despite all the evidence against it and the fact none of the others beforehand have come to fruition.
"It's only a few dates close together...it could be done if it works out like it should...could cancel....but yup..kinda a gut punch statement," one Telegram user wrote. "But we are in an information war, so who the hell knows."
