I await your erudite rumination on this "Q" fantasy... You're like a dog with a bone! (Can't wait —that's an idiom, ersi— to see your reaction when you finally realize it's your tail you've got hold of. :)

BTW: What's your take on the "Mostly Peaceful"™ attempted assassination of Donald Trump? :)

You are always wrong about everything. You should have said, While I likely know less about this episode than most here... or even more adequately While I know the least...

On January 6, 2021, you did not see a coup attempt. This time, did you see an assassination attempt? Who was the assassin? I know who he was. Do you?

Of course, don't mistake this for an interest in your opinions. I am only interested in what spin Q is putting on it. The "little lady Secret Service Agent" is already a gem.

While I likely know more about this episode than most here, I'll only add -at this point- one observation:

What explains the presence of the "little lady" Secret Service Agent on Trump's detail? Sure, she was probably willing to "take a bullet" for her protectee — but she just wasn't big enough! Who the heck is running the Secret Service? An idiot or an ideologue?[1]
(DEI protocols taking precedence over Mission!)
One can, if they care to, easily extract a definition of "ideologue" from this — unless one is an ideologue! :)

A regional peculiarity that I hear more and more: Using "whenever" in places where "when" is appropriate... I used to think it was an Okie-ism, something only folks from Oklahoma said. But I eventually noticed the usage spanned Pennsylvania through the south west U.S. — I guess my New England roots cause me to cringe at such.

Not quite so annoying is this sort of thing:
This is a dead serious thread.
The term is "deadly-serious" or "deathly serious" — but youngsters don't do adjectives, only memes! :)

While being dead is serious (it's a condition few recover from), this usage is yet another misapplication of a presumed intensifier.

Are there no examples from languages other than English that can be supplied?[1]
I'm an English monoglot — for which I'm sometimes derided. But many of our posters are not. Are they afraid of revealing their own languages' warts?! :)

"literally crucified" — Yes, the misuse of the word literally has become ubiquitous. It's figuratively a pain in my ass! :(
I suppose it's taken to be an intensifier of sorts You'd think — oh, I was about to say that simply using a dictionary would preclude such mistakes. But few people would; SpellCheck suffices, even when it's egregiously wrong!

When Trump said about the NY case (the one where he became a convicted felon) that his witnesses were "literally crucified", he was channeling his inner Goebbels as usual. There needs to be a counter-force to his fascism and nazism. And somebody should defuse his narcissism too.

For example in typesetting and layout design, precision is very important.

What makes you think that this "Q" and cohorts aren't Dem social media operatives? :)
Wrong question. The question you need to ask yourself: Even while you deny that you have fallen for Q, why are you exclusively spewing Q talking points in each and every post?

You are beyond help.

Trump left office on January 6, 2021.
Here's Trump making his last speech in White House backyard on January 20, 2021.

You are always wrong about everything. And you're on your own.
