Despite what Elon Musk may think, comedy is still under attack on Twitter. Just ask Blaze podcaster Jason Whitlock, who on Friday poked fun at Nancy and Paul Pelosi to make a point that was, unsurprisingly, lost on liberals.
In the wake of bizarre, conflicting reports and an absence of police bodycam and home security video footage, Whitlock went on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and declared that, while he doesn’t trust NBC — which scrubbed one of its reports on the assault of Paul Pelosi for not meeting its “reporting standards” — he is “outraged for Nancy Pelosi.”

“Tucker, listen, I’m not upset with NBC,” the conservative commentator said. “I have no expectations for them as a journalist.”
“What I have to stand up and defend, I’m outraged for Nancy Pelosi,” he continued. “This woman has taken the hard-earned money she’s made from insider trading and invested in a pair of cans at 82 years old, and comes home to find out that her husband is playing hide the hammer with a Black Lives Matter guy.”
“You talk about disrupting a nuclear family,” Whitlock joked. “The Black Lives Matter crew must be ecstatic, because this guy is doing it, and so is Paul Pelosi. I’m upset for Nancy. She spent her hard-earned money on a pair of cans, and he’s not interested.”
As BizPac Review reported, NBC aired a report that included new details of the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, by 42-year-old David DePape, who broke into the couple’s San Francisco home and reportedly whacked Paul over the head with a hammer, sending the 82-year-old man to the hospital with a fractured skull.

In the report, which aired Friday morning on NBC’s “TODAY Show,” Miguel Almaguer cited sources who said that it was Paul Pelosi who opened the door for police when they arrived.
What’s more, claimed Almaguer, Pelosi “did not immediately declare an emergency or try to leave his home but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police.”

The report was undeniably explosive.
The assault was politicized by Democrats from the moment it happened, with even President Joe Biden attempting to link DePape, reportedly a nudist drug addict who lives in a bus bearing a Black Lives Matter banner, to “extreme MAGA Republicans” and the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
With such divisive, inflammatory accusations being hurled by the nation’s leader at his political opponents just days before the midterm elections, conservatives are understandably anxious to hear the full details of the event.
But according to NBC, who yanked the report from its website and off of Twitter, Almaguer failed to live up to the network’s “reporting standards.”
The move did nothing but fuel still more conspiracy theories about the incident and more backlash against anyone who suggests there may be more to the story — a fact Tucker Carlson noted on Friday.
“I must say, I did notice that the second people started speculating about what might have really happened, which we are not doing and haven’t done, but some have, because in the absence of the body cam video, why wouldn’t they? I saw these liberals on Twitter saying it’s disgusting that you would suggest something alternative was going on,” Carlson stated. “I thought they were the defenders of the alternative. What did that become immoral?”
Yes, even the left’s outrage over speculation that Paul Pelosi may have been the victim of a tryst gone wrong is based on hypocrisy, as though there’s something wrong in their world of “anything goes” with getting caught cheating on your wife with a gay lover.
Again, Carlson and Whitlock were clearly enjoying a laugh at the Pelosis’ expense, but the points they made are relevant to the larger, more important “disinformation” discussion that is threatening to strangle the First Amendment into woke submission.
“Tucker, I don’t want to put you in a tough spot,” Whitlock responded. “I got to correct you again. Are you suggesting that my information, that she spent her money, are you saying that’s bad information?”
“I’ve seen a lot of evidence. I feel real comfortable,” Whitlock declared. “She’s trying to entice her husband, but she’s interested in playing hide the hammer on a Friday night with some weirdo. I think there’s an issue. This is what needs to be investigated. This is the endgame for Black Lives Matter, disrupting the nuclear family. Start with the Speaker of the House.”
Though humor has long been used to expose the government’s penchant for muddying the facts and pushing agendas, and despite Musk’s proclamation that “comedy is now legal” on Twitter, Whitlock’s over-the-top comments were predictably condemned on the social media platform.
“Just pure unvarnished misogyny and homophobia on Tucker Carlson’s show,” cried liberal journalist Aaron Rupar.
But Whitlock isn’t backing down from this woke mob.
“You left out the word ‘comedy,'” he smoothly replied.
