Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle got engaged in 2020.

Don Jr. has frequently been putting out Q&A episodes of his online show Triggered, and in a recent upload, he read the question, "Is Michelle Obama a dude?"

He laughed his way through the question and answered, "Listen ... you know ... I'm not allowed to talk about these things because you get called a conspiracy theorist by the mainstream media. But I will say, have you ever seen a picture of her pregnant?"

He attempts to backtrack his answer by saying, "Just kidding," but not after ending with, "That said, I haven't."

A second person commented, "The Trumps are so deep in their conspiracy theory bubble, they're basically swimming in s--- at this point."

Another replied, "I know for sure that Donald Trump Jr. is not a man. That’s no conspiracy theory."

Conspiracy theory debunker Mike Rothschild linked the Michelle Obama QAnon theory to the rise in "Trans panic" far-right conservatives have been pushing for several years now.

"Trans panic is a huge part of the mythology around QAnon," Rothschild tweeted. "GhostEzra piled up 300k followers by openly wondering which women were 'actually' men and which men were 'actually women.' Plus the whole 'Michelle Obama is actually a guy' trope is huge in Q circles. It's all just sick."
