What if?

What if a terrorist attack or mass shooting occurs during Lord Emperor Trump's presidency. Who will conspiracy theorists believe was responsible? Surely not one of their own. The left? The evil Nazi-Commie-Jew-Lizard shadow government?

This is really a similar question to topics covered in 'Trump will do false flag attack'. There will continue to be ISIS attacks under Trump. Who do the Alex Jones crowd currently blame for ISIS attacks?

"Them"?
I've never been entirely sure who "they" are though, as it always seems a slightly amorphous entity, largely consisting of people AJ etc don't like.

Can't be bad dudes. They'll all be in Guantanamo Bay. So that will narrow it down a bit.

Whoever they decide to guess it was, with the sole exception of the group that actually is responsible. Same as always. Some of them will think it's shapeshifting lizards, some that it's the US government but somehow that doesn't include Donald Trump, some that it's liberals trying to take away their guns, some that it's Israel but definitely not the Jews because they're not anti-Semitic, no sir, not them, some that it's extra-terrestrials, and some a whole load of other things that I can't think of yet because they're even more insane.

Don't worry, if there is an attack the undercover Russian security guards will step in to protect their man.

Unless it's a Russian false flag op.

The Jews. It's always the Jews.
