Horn-headed Trump supporter the ‘QAnon Shaman’ has been granted his wish of a strictly organic diet after a judge approved the special food on ‘religious grounds.’
Jacob Anthony Chansley, 33, also known as Jake Angeli, shot to worldwide infamy when he stormed the Capitol last week sporting face-paint, a fur hat and holding a Star-Spangled spear.
The Phoenix native turned himself into the FBI on Saturday after returning from D.C. but had refused to eat in custody because the food was not organic.
Judge Deborah Fine said his fasting was ‘deeply concerning’ and ordered the prison to find a way to accommodate Chansley’s demands at his first court appearance via video link on Monday.

Chansley has been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Both charges are federal misdemeanors.
David Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona, later confirmed that the judge’s orders to feed Chansley organically would be met.
‘We will abide by the judge’s order,’ he told ABC 15.
It comes after the defendant’s mother Martha Chansley told local media that her son was unable to stomach regular food.
‘He gets very sick if he doesn’t eat organic food—literally will get physically sick,’ she told ABC 15.
Chansley has previously admitted his belief in QAnon after he started after reading conspiracy theories on the internet
She added that her son was a ‘patriot’ and the ‘gentlest person I know.’
She was unapologetic for her son’s role in the violent and deadly disruption of Congress on Wednesday.
According to court documents, Chansley called the FBI field office in Washington and confirmed to an agent that ‘he was the male in the face paint and headdress in the Vice President’s chair in the Senate.’
He told the agent that he and other ‘patriots’ had come from Arizona at the request of the President that all ‘patriots’ come to D.C. on January 6th, the documents state.
The QAnon conspiracy theorist has been frequently spotted at pro-Trump rallies in Phoenix and would often appear in a similar costume consisting of horns, fur headdress without any shirt.
In November he was spotted protesting the election results outside of the Maricopa County election center in Phoenix.
In that photo, Chansley held a sign that read, ‘HOLD THE LINE PATRIOTS GOD WINS.’
Often known as the QAnon Shaman he has become a fixture at recent right-wing rallies while decked out in his signature attire.
One of his tattoos is said to show the symbol of Wotanism, an acronym for ‘Will of the Aryan Nation.’
The FBI identified Chansley by his distinctive tattoos, which include bricks circling his biceps in an apparent reference to Trump’s border wall.
During Monday’s hearing, Chansley addressed the judge but did not make any statements regarding the charges against him.
‘I’m not really all that worried about it because, in all honesty…I didn’t break any laws. I walked through open doors,’ he said in an interview last week.
‘I obey the orders of the president of the United States,’ he said.
Protests he attended inlcude one in July where he filmed himself ranting that Covid-19 is a hoax. He was also part of a rowdy crowd of Trump supporters chanting ‘Stop the Steal’ who showed up at a tabulation center in Maricopa County on November 5
