Addressing a crowd at a QAnon conference in Las Vegas over the weekend, Cowboys for Trump founder Couy Griffin turned against former President Donald Trump.

Trump, who failed to deliver on many of his campaign promises, left office, asking others to reelect him for another term so that he could accomplish what he'd promised in 2016. But at the Vegas event, Griffin made it clear that there were some things Trump could have done unilaterally.

"We supported President Trump for his fight for justice as well," said Griffin. "And for four years we cried 'lock her up. Lock her up. Lock her up.' We know she's a criminal. What did the president tell us? 'If I was in charge, you'd be in jail.'

"Ok, Mr. President, you've been in charge of the law for four years," he continued. "At the end of your four year time, the only ones locked up were men like me, and others like me, that have stood by the president the strongest."
