Conspiracy Theories

Michele Bachmann: Capitol riot was carried out by the ‘progressive left’ to frame Trump as a terrorist

Appearing on Jan Markell’s Understanding the Times radio show this Sunday, Michele Bachmann went down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole regarding the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, saying it was actually carried out by progressive seeking to stain the MAGA movement.

“Jan. 6, we’re all told that that’s the worst day that ever happened, these were the worst riots in America,” Bachmann said. “It absolutely wasn’t. It is my opinion that this was a theatrical event that the progressive left put on.”

According to Bachmann, “agitators” were brought in to the Capitol “to create this problem.”

“I believe it was specifically done to rebrand Donald Trump as being an insurrectionist and a leader of a terrorist movement,” she declared. “I also believe that this was done to rebrand the Make America Great agenda—because remember, that was considered extremely popular by about 80 million Americans—so they wanted to rebrand Make America Great as an evil thing and those of us who supported Donald Trump and that agenda as evil and terrorists.”
