After everything went to pieces, he went into hiding, begging his dupes to send him money for security, some of it because he is in danger from 'witches and wiccans'.
He also released a 'cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs' video in which he claims he is a 'king among idiots', and prays to become a tool for divine vengeance. He also has some weird animus against famine-resistant people:
He says he refuses to cooperate with fat people, does that mean that he's dumped Trump and Alex Jones? Once again, I am thankful that this failed coup was planned by idiots, including their king.

He also repeatedly refers to "fat people" among other things. @FBIWFO https://t.co/utTV7TmnTO pic.twitter.com/1uchtjs2OT— Cleavon MD (@Cleavon_MD) January 14, 2021
