On Sept. 30, 2022, 53-year-old retired Master Sergeant Micki Larson-Olson was found guilty of “a misdemeanor charge for resisting efforts by law enforcement officers to clear the U.S. Capitol grounds after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol breach.” Larson-Olson, who was dressed in a Captain America costume, refused to get off of the scaffolding U.S. Capitol Police were trying to clear in the wake of the insurrection. This costumed QAnon MAGA person received a 180-day jail sentence from the Superior Court judge.
On Thursday, a now free Larson-Olson was embraced by disgraced former president Donald Trump. According to The Washington Post, the cosplaying MAGA Larson-Olson said, after yelling to him about being a Jan. 6 defendant, Trump came over, gave her a hug, and told her to “hang in there,” adding “You just take care of yourself. You’ve been through too much. You’re going to wind up being happy.”
Larson-Olson is a long time QAnon embracer and Donald Trump rally-follower, recognized for her big red, white, and blue outfits. By the way, she’s also called for Congress to be tried and executed for treason … for stealing the election from Donald Trump. Her understanding of reality matches this profile. After serving 161 days of her sentence, she told the Post she’s still heavily into QAnon, though now she’s a part of an offshoot group called the Negative 48.

That’s a lot of delusion and anger wrapped up in one person. But Larson-Olson is clearly not alone, and having a former president, albeit a very corrupt joke of a president, literally embrace you and basically tell you that you are a political prisoner in a fictitious deep state war is not an act of kindness.
It’s important to remember that Trump is a narcissist. Any piece of news that makes him the center of attention eases his anxiety that people might realize what a fraud he really is. The events of Jan. 6 were not only his chance at becoming emperor or king of America, they were a moment of joy for him on a day where his official powers were being taken away. The fact that it was one of the nadirs of American history is a perfect example of how antithetical Trump and his Nazi-inspired politics are to our country’s health.
There were many reactions to this strange coupling. But to summarize it:
And here is an illustration to hammer the point home.
The spoiled toddler mentality that continues to fuel the Jan. 6 defendants
