Here is what should be the final nail in the coffin of the sick Right-wing conspiracies about the savage Paul Pelosi attack: The break-in with a hammer was caught on video by the Capitol Police.
The officer in D.C. quickly pulled up additional camera angles from around Pelosi’s home and began to backtrack, watching recordings from the minutes before San Francisco police arrived. There, on camera, was a man with a hammer, breaking a glass panel and entering the speaker’s home, according to three people familiar with how Capitol Police learned of the break-in and who have been briefed on or viewed the video themselves.
So much for the “glass was on the outside so it wasn’t a break-in!” conspiracy. These people have never heard of laminated security glass, apparently, but far be it from me to expect hard core conspiracy believers to learn anything that can’t be warped to feed into their needy insular world.
The conspiracies will keep coming, because they are being (by people who know better) baked into the Right-wing gaseous chamber of lies reinforced by Elon Musk, who retweeted the conspiracy from a notoriously fake news website (a clue might have been when they published a story that Hillary Clinton had died and instead a body double had been sent to debate Trump) and Donald Trump, who fueled the conspiracy with his special blend of being the fake news he has always accused those who are telling the truth of being.
