Fox News reporter Kevin Corke tweeted, then deleted, a bizarre tweet giving a shoutout to the QAnon conspiracy on Monday.

The White House correspondent tweeted a photo of a coffee cup with “Q” written on it, captioned with “My kind of coffee…”

An apparent QAnon follower tweeted to Corke: “Are you going to be the one to ask ‘the question’, sir?” Corke responded with an arm flex emoji.

Corke later deleted the first tweet, but not before Jared Holt from the media watchdog Right Wing Watch took screenshots.

QAnon is a right-wing conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump secretly appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama, along with Trump’s other enemies.

This isn’t the first time Fox News has engaged with QAnon. Fox’s Carly Shimkus read a QAnon supporter’s tweet out loud as a show of support for Trump during a “Fox and Friends First” segment on Friday.
