Trump-JFK Jr. 2024 believers turned out for Trump's Arizona rally

One of the more unbelievable subplots in these divided times is the stated belief among some supporters of former President Donald Trump that John F. Kennedy Jr. did not, in fact, die in a plane crash in 1999, but instead is on the verge of revealing himself as a Trump supporter. This group turned out for Trump's weekend rally in Florence, Arizona, Politico's Meridith McGraw reported in a dispatch Monday evening.

QAnon influencer Michael Protzman, who organized a Great Pumpkin–like JFK Jr. reappearance party in Dallas last November, was spotted in the stands, and "one attendee was spotted wearing a red shirt with the faces of Trump, [John F.] Kennedy, and Kennedy Jr.," McGraw reports. Jim and Ron Watkins, believed by some to have started the QAnon conspiracy theory, recorded their attendance at Trump's rally for their fans online.
