Donald Trump’s Washington is already a town ablaze with conspiracy theories: QAnon, 4Chan–and of course, the one straight from Trump’s fever dreams which will never die–the “Deep State.”
It’s enough of a noxious stew to keep Matt Damon in low-budget features well into the next decade.
So of course you can imagine the hyperventilation this week when journalist McKay Coppins unmasked the famous face behind a little-known Twitter account.

Mitt Romney meet Pierre Delecto.
Although “Pierre Delecto,” in reality, was simply a harmless little social media account, reactions trended toward “secret lurker account,” with some users going so far as to ask if this “scandal” would bring down Romney’s career as a US senator from Utah.
There is absolutely no–zero–evidence that Senator Romney trafficked in anything more salacious than a little political fun with his little alter ego.
When the president of the United States can boast about grabbing women by their genitals and also pay hush money to his porn-star mistress with virtual impunity, the thought that Romney’s “big reveal” should be greeted by anything but a little chuckle strikes one as ridiculous.
Let me be clear: I am not, and would never be, a political supporter of Romney’s.
But that being the case, I can still acknowledge the honor in his public service.
If the voters of Utah were to punish Romney in any way for this Pierre Delecto business, they are fools.
