You might have seen people wearing "Blacks for Trump" t-shirts at Trump's Arizona rally yesterday. The leader of that organization is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist who was previously a member of a violent cult theintercept.com/2020/10/19/…

Mike Lindell is the most unhinged conspiracy theorist in the country. And he’s an OFFICIAL SPEAKER at Trump’s rally. And pretty much the entire GOP is cool with this?
“When was the last time you saw anyone on Fox talk about the 2020 election?” Mike Lindell says tonight, calling it “disgusting”
