Love him or hate him, Vivek Ramswamny isn't afraid to tackle taboo narratives, and he brought his A-game to CNN after Wednesday's Republican debate.
After a fiery night full of hot takes and insults —And yes, some a lot noun Also political talk: The young presidential hopeful continued to wow his supporters when he ventured into no man's land while discussing the so-called Jan. 6 “insurgency” with veteran reporter Dana Bash.
“There was no evidence that it was an inside job,” Bash began in the clip Ramaswamy shared on X.
Trying to drive his point home, Bash emphatically continued: “It was a fringe conspiracy theory that Trump-appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray has explicitly said, time and time again, is not true.” .
Despite Bash's best efforts, Ramaswamy didn't seem convinced.
If you had told me almost 3 years ago, when I was just a CEO, that January 6th was an internal job, I would have said that's crazy talk. it is not There is now clear evidence that there was at least entrapment of peaceful protesters, similar to the fake Gretchen Whitmer… pic.twitter.com/6FgSggMlM1

The presidential hopeful admitted that if he was asked three years ago if he was thinking about January 6th it was an “inside job” he would have called it “crazy talk”.
Ramaswamy spoke about the narrative discrepancies seen in the January 6 postth footage and called the lack of transparency about how many federal agents were in the field that day “shocking.”
But it was when the self-proclaimed “created anti-awakening” brought up a supposed “catch” that Bash looked distressed.
“What do you mean entrapment?” Bash hissed.
“Attraction means that the police incited people to do something they would not have done otherwise,” he explained. “And then they get arrested for doing it.”
After Bash called on January 6thth the most aggressive attack on democracy in “many, many lives”, accused Ramaswamy of having “no evidence” for his entrapment claims.
Ramaswamny challenged the fake journalist to take a look at the footage herself as she tried unsuccessfully to tie former President Trump to the events of that day.
The fiery clip got a lot of attention on X where Bash in particular took a beating:
Journalism is dead. Listening to this woman speak, she just wants to push a narrative. No curiosity or interest in exploring anything else. Thanks for dealing with this every day! So tired…

It's crazy to see the media cling to narratives even after everything falls apart
you can feel the desperation

Imagine that journalists no longer do research and only offer opinionated commentary. What a time to be alive.

Dana is no match. And Vivek is right.

this #CNN The journalist has her talking points and sticks to them. There is no journalistic integrity or even curiosity to know the truth.
Vivek accurately states that the government and the two political parties (aka the #UniParty) has lied to us.

If this causes even just 1 of your viewers to pause for a moment, it's a win. The majority needs to be made aware of the atrocities our government has committed against these citizens.

I don't know what happened, but it's not the story they made out. I appreciate you having the courage to admit that something isn't working.
