Jimmy Kimmel gave a befitting reply to Tesla founder Elon Musk after the billionaire shared an article promoting an unsupported conspiracy theory regarding the recent attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, calling him a “fully-formed piece of s**t”. Elon’s bizarre theory comes after Hillary Clinton shared an article, depicting details about the far-right conspiracy theorist, DavidDePape, who allegedly attacked Paul.
Elon Musk’s Bizarre Conspiracy Theory…
The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.https://t.co/MQor4NDFeE

It all started with former first lady, Hillary Clinton’s tweet wherein she shared an LATimes article, that narrated the violent attack on Paul Pelosi. The article mentioned the alleged attacker, David DePape’s defense of his antisemitism, far-right affiliation and “bigoted conspiracies”. The former senator describes DePape’s violent actions as “shocking, but not surprising,” accusing the Republican Party of “regularly spreading hate and deranged conspiracy theories.”

On this, Elon Musk tried playing the devil’s advocate, replying to Clinton’s tweet while sharing a bizarre theory that depicted this attacker as a Castron Nudist (a group of radical gay male prostitures). He referred to Paul Pelosi as a closeted gay man who once hired DePape as an escort. The theory also defends David by stating that it was Paul Pelosi who had the hammer and was struggling with David, who was in his underwear.
In Elon’s since-deleted tweet, Jimmy Kimmel slammed the billionaire for sharing this crazy theory, and wrote, “It has been interesting over the years to watch you blossom from the electric car guy into a fully-formed piece of s**t. Elon replied to Jimmy with a crying emoji. Well, it’s not surprising to see Elon’s far-right sympathies.
What Happened With Paul Pelosi?
On Friday (Oct. 28), a Berkeley resident, David DePape allegedly invaded into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Pacific Heights home in San Francisco. He ended up attacking her husband, Paul Pelosi. Police authorities revealed that David was armed with a hammer and “violently assaulted” the 82-year-old Paul just before 2:30 a.m at his San Fransisco home.
During his confrontation with Paul, David shouted, “Where is Nancy?” However, the democrat house speaker was present in Washingtom and was scheduled to deliver a speech with Vice President Kamala Harris. As a result of the attack, Paul suffered blunt-force injuries and underwent a surgery for skull fracture.
It has come out that his actual target was Nancy Pelosi. San Francisco Police Chief William Scott released a statement: “Our officers tackled the suspect, disarmed him, and took him into custody.” He also revealed the name of the alleged attacker and it was then that social media started buzzing with his name, trying to figure out who David is, and whether he is “on the left or right of America’s political spectrum.”
David DePape, the alleged attacker of Paul Pelosi, is known for embracing multiple conspiracy theories on a variety of subjects like climate change, the Covid-19 pandemic and voter fraud via several online platforms. Per David’s relatives, he has been ‘out of touch with reality,” and estranged from his family.
DePape is a part of a nudist advocacy group in San Francisco’s Castro district. “I’ve been aware of him for a long time because he was associated with the public nudity folks in the Castro. It’s a long history with him,” State Senator Scott Wiener revealed about this attacker. As for Elon’s theory, I think Jimmy Kimmel has responded in the best possible manner to a dangerous man, who now holds the reins of Twitter. What do you think?
