QAnon—the conspiracy web hinging on the belief that U.S. government is secretly run by an elite group of satanic cannibal pedophiles whom President Donald Trump was sent to expose—has enjoyed increased legitimacy within the Republican party.

Trump has refused to condemn the collective delusion and even endorsed Marjorie Taylor Greene, the soon-to-be Congresswoman who's voiced support for QAnon in the past.

This is despite some of the bonkers beliefs spouted by supporters of the group, such as claims that John F. Kennedy Jr. is still alive and that Hillary Clinton operated a child sex trafficking ring out of the basement of a D.C. pizza parlor.

With news that President-elect Joe Biden fractured his foot while playing with his dog Major, the former Vice President will likely have to wear a corrective boot for the next few weeks.

But certain QAnon believers don't buy that Biden is injured at all—they think he's using it to hide a secret ankle monitor because he's been arrested.

The accusation of secret ankle monitors isn't new for QAnon, who made similar assertions about 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the late Arizona Republican Senator John McCain when they experienced foot injuries.

People were once again astounded by the bizarre accusations from the conspiracy theorists.

Biden has not been arrested.
