Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s authoritarian reaction to the airing of previously unseen footage from the January 6, 2021 chaos at the U.S. Capitol when he called for Fox News to stomp on host Tucker Carlson has drawn much criticism as well as an epic bit of trolling from billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk.
The New York Democrat denounced the conservative network for allowing Carlson to air the bombshell footage that undercut the official establishment narrative of the so-called “insurrection” with the public getting its first chance to see how the day’s events were misleadingly portrayed to justify a federal government crackdown on supporters of former President Donald J. Trump and to disqualify him from a potential future return to the White House.
For good measure, Schumer took aim at Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy who allowed Carlson and the network to have exclusive access to the 44,000 hours of security video from the Capitol that had been hidden from the American people by Democrats and their virulent GOP collaborators Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, both of whom are no longer in Congress.
“Speaker McCarthy has held the gavel for less than three months,” raged Schumer on Twitter. “But by sharing the January 6th security footage with Fox News, he has already done more than any party leader in Congress to enable the spread of Donald Trump’s Big Lie.”

After Schumer’s rant, the SpaceX/Tesla CEO and “Chief Twit” jabbed the top congressional Democrat with more video debunking the “Big Lie” of the “insurrection” which he posted to the social media platform as a taunting reply.
“Do you want us to remove this video?” Musk wrote as a rebuttal to Schumer’s whining.

The immense public service provided to Americans by Carlson was a major blow to the entrenched “uniparty” faction of the swamp which burned down “democracy” in order to save it from Trump, an outsider who so threatened business as usual in a city that oozes with corruption that extreme measures were brought to bear to expel him from Mordor on the Potomac.
The unhinged reactions from Schumer, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and the full might of the media propaganda machine that was unleashed on the popular Fox News political commentator showed that there is nothing that they fear more than transparency.

Musk’s tweaking of Schumer with his tweet of more narrative-busting footage drew a boisterous reaction from Twitter users, many of whom took great delight in the world’s richest man trolling one of Washington’s most corrupt lawmakers.
Lol I like that you’re taunting him

NO! Transparency is the only way we heal the Nation. @SenSchumer has knowingly lied to the American people for years. He, Adam, Mitch, Mitt no matter the party need to go. The destruction due to thirst for power is evil.

In another tweet, minutes before he poked Schumer, Musk also mocked the easily manipulated drones who serve as the Democratic Party’s shock troops with a meme of an NPC (nonplayable character) that has been popularized by those seeking to comment on those who swarm critics like hordes of unthinking automatons to enforce compliance with the left-wing political entity’s narratives, particularly on COVID, Ukraine, J6 and muh… Trump.
Schumer’s demagoguery along with protests from McConnell and other Republicans including failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney appear to have had some influence as more J6 video footage aired by Carlson seems to at least temporarily have been put on hold. But there is already enough out there to expose the liars and their grotesque manipulation of the fateful day’s events, further discrediting them in the eyes of the American people.
