Trump accidentally refers to Kelly Loeffler as 'Karen' and says he 'LOVES' QAnon Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene at rally

DONALD Trump accidentally referred to Kelly Loeffler as "Karen" and said he "loves" QAnon Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene at his Georgia rally on Monday.

During the event in Dalton, the outgoing president made a blunder when introducing the Republican senator.

Trump was at the event to campaign for the re-election of Loeffler and David Perdue, who are running against Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock on Tuesday.

"Well you know I beat Ossoff once," Trump told supporters, before blundering he is "running against a very fine woman, Karen, who you know."

Once she joined the stage, Loeffler said: "I have an announcement to make Georgia. On January 6th, I will object to the Electoral College vote!"

Trump has pressed Republican lawmakers to formally object at a joint session of Congress on Wednesday that is set to confirm Biden's victory in the Electoral College.

The outgoing president's attempts to overturn the election has split the Republican Party, with some backing him and others turning against him in the face of democracy.

Later in his lengthy speech, Trump welcomed Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene to the stage, who he said he "loves."

Trump-aligned Greene has given a strong nod to bizarre QAnon beliefs.

QAnon is a conspiracy theory shared online that the FBI has listed as a domestic terrorism threat.

The theory claims without evidence that “deep-state” traitors and child sex predators including prominent Democrats are plotting against Trump, who in turn is leading a plot against them.

Greene has spoken strongly in favor of the crackpot belief.

In a video posted online several years ago, Greene claimed, “Q is a patriot,” referring to the supposed operative at QAnon’s center.

She also said: “There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out.”

However, after winning her primary runoff in August last year, Greene backtracked, telling Fox News that QAnon does not “represent” her and “wasn’t part of my campaign.”

The US House of Representatives late last year voted to condemn the pro-Trump online conspiracy theory.

But, a recent poll by Morning Consult said 38 percent of Republicans believe that at least parts of the QAnon conspiracy are true.

Trump has refused to renounce QAnon and even praised it as patriotic. He has frequently retweeted QAnon-linked content.

As the outgoing president concluded his rally, he broke into dance to the Village People's YMCA.

The track became a notorious closer for Trump while on the presidential campaign trail in 2020.

However, Monday marked the first time the president danced since his final campaign rally on November 2.

Last night, Trump was seen shuffling and fist-pumping around the stage in front of supporters before making his exit.
