Musk Embraces Carlson’s Lies About Capitol Rioters

Mediaite reports:

Elon Musk, the billionaire owner of Twitter, embraced Tucker Carlson’s revisionist account of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol in a series of tweets. In addition to being misleading, Carlson’s episode on the Jan. 6 tapes was riddled with glaring factual inaccuracies.

Musk celebrated Carlson airing the footage. In one tweet, he responded to Mike Cernovich, who launched his political career as a Pizzagate conspiracy theorist, by calling the revelations “Shocking.”

Musk also responded “Wow” to footage from Carlson showing that police officer Brian Sicknick was seen walking around the Capitol building. Sicknick died the next day.
