On it were scrawled slogans supporting President Donald Trump, including “MAGA Forever.” That refers to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. In the center of his palm was what appeared to be a “Q.”
The letter is associated with QAnon. That’s a conspiracy theory that suggests a “deep state” plot against Trump and contends special counsel Robert Mueller is actually investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.
Asked what was on Comello’s hand, his lawyer Brian Neary replied: “Handcuffs.”
