“Garrett Ziegler, a former aide for Peter Navarro during the Trump administration, recently spoke to the January 6th Committee. But it wasn’t until a few days after his testimony that he decided to viciously attack the Committee members with homophobic and sexist attacks that seemingly came out of nowhere. These attacks were leveled against the Committee in a rambling, nonsensical 27-minute video posted to the conservative platform Telegram. Farron Cousins explains what happened.

Recently a former aid in the Trump administration, actually a former aid to Trump’s trade advisor, Peter Navarro by the name of Garrett, Ziegler testified in front of the January 6th select committee. And we can only assume that things didn’t go well with Mr. Ziegler, because a couple of days after he had testified in front of the committee, I guess he’d just been stewing on it for a while. He put out a 27 minute video on the conservative platform, telegram, where he attacked the committee. He attacked the other witnesses. He launched into homophobic attacks, sexist attacks, all kinds of just absolutely in my opinion, insane attacks against these individuals again for 27 minutes. So I’m gonna read a quick excerpt of some of the crap that he, he had to say here, cuz truly, uh it’s it’s just crazy. So listen up from rolling stone claiming he has quote no sort of army to hit back at claims revealed during the committee hearings, Zigler launches into a misogynistic sidebar against his former colleagues quote, the other young people in the white house are total ho and thoughts like Cassidy Hutchinson and this Alyssa Farra ho bag who are just terrible.
I mean, they have no clue what they’re saying. He also, uh, made another claim that I’m not gonna read because it has a, uh, homophobic slur in it. Uh, and he also says, this is a istic anti-white campaign. If you can’t see that your eyes are freaking closed, I am the least racist person that many of you have ever met. By the way, I have no bigotry. I just try to see the world for where it is.
I, I don’t even know what most of that means like a istic. Like how, how, how, how is that even related to what the committee is doing? Like you literally learned a word and decided to go out there and, and use it. Like you don’t even know the context of it. You don’t know the history of it. You just think like, ah, it’s probably something tied to communism. So I’ll go ahead and use that because sure. Why not? Cuz yeah, the committee’s totally istic, communist socialist, whatever word the Republicans want to use for that given day. But this is an individual. I feel like my personal opinion. That’s deeply disturbed when you go out there and you’re attacking these witnesses, Alyssa Farra, Griffin, Cassidy, Hutchinson, calling them hoes and thoughts calling one of them a ho bag that that’s not normal behavior. This is juvenile it’s infantile behavior from this person that used to work in the fricking white house and to go out there and say
That committee being chaired by an African American is somehow anti-white when most of the other people on the committee are in fact white. This is ridiculous. It is my not professional opinion that Mr. Ziegler needs help. Mr. Ziegler probably needs to go talk to some professionals, but more importantly, I wanna know what the committee did to him that him off so bad. I know they have, you know, filed a a, uh, or actually his former boss. Peter Navar was actually arrested recently for contempt of Congress. So maybe he still has loyalty to Navarro that he’s, you know, now mad about for them issuing that criminal contempt referral to the DOJ that the DOJ actually acted on. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what kind of skeletons are kicking around in Mr. Ziegler’s brain. But I do know he needs help again. That’s just my opinion. Maybe a mental health professional would tell us otherwise, but I seriously doubt if you watched the entire 27 minute video that you would walk away thinking, yes, this, this is a normal functioning human being with absolutely no problems at all. No, this is a deeply disturbed individual. That, again, my opinion, I think he needs to seek help as soon as possible.”
