Laura Loomer, a far-right internet troll who won the Republican Party’s nomination for Florida’s 21st congressional district, wilted under questioning from a local news reporter during an interview this week.
In an interview with journalist Jay O’Brien, Loomer claimed that she has been banned from multiple tech platforms — including Twitter, Facebook and even Uber Eats — because of a vast far-left conspiracy against her, and not because she has regularly spread misinformation about mass shootings being staged “false flag” operations.
Loomer then claimed that she believes so strongly that tech companies are conspiring against her that she filed a lawsuit over it.
“Many lawsuits have been filed!” she claimed.
“But didn’t you bring a lawsuit and the judge threw it out?” O’Brien asked her.
“Yeah but just because the judge threw it out doesn’t mean that there isn’t truth behind it!” she replied.
“I think that’s exactly what it means,” O’Brien shot back.
“No, no!” Loomer insists.

Utah Republican accuses Dems of ‘cheating’ in Georgia Senate runoffs — but his hometown paper doesn’t buy it
A Utah Republican is facing backlash after accusing Democrats of “cheating” in the two January runoff elections in Georgia that will determine control of the United States Senate.
The Peach State will be holding two runoff elections on January 5th. There is a special election, with interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) being challenged by the Rev. Raphael Warnock. In the other race, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) is being challenged by Democrat Jon Ossoff.
In a fundraising appeal posted to social media, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) accused Democrats of cheating in the race. But his hometown newspaper, The Salt Lake Tribune, noted there was no evidence to support his accusations.
Trump legal team mocked after attacking Trump-appointed judge for being part of the ‘activist judicial machinery’ in Pennsylvania
Jenna Ellis, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and the Senior Legal Adviser to the Trump campaign is once again being mocked, this time for her near-immediate response to a unanimous 3-0 ruling against the campaign in a Pennsylvania election case.
Ellis says she and Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, have decided that the three judges, who were all appointed by Republican presidents – including the one who wrote the opinion who was appointed by Trump himself – are all part of the “activist judicial machinery” in Pennsylvania.
