Vivek Ramaswamy says everything that conservatives have been waiting to hear. However, Sara Gonzales isn’t convinced — and she has receipts to back it up.
While Ramaswamy recently came out in defense of Donald Trump over his alleged criminal involvement in January 6, he was singing a much different tune in 2022.
In his 2022 book, he wrote: “It was a dark day for democracy. The loser of the last election refused to concede the race, claimed the election was stolen, raised hundreds of millions of dollars from loyal supporters, and is considering running for executive office again.”
In an op-ed he co-authored in 2021, Ramaswamy again sharply condemned Donald Trump for January 6.
Just six days after January 6, 2021, Ramaswamy tweeted, “What Trump did last week was wrong. Downright abhorrent. Plain and simple. I’ve said it before and did so in my piece.”
“Does that sound like the same guy to you that you keep hearing speak positively about January 6?” Gonzales says, skeptical as ever.
Ramaswamy’s campaign also admitted to paying a Wikipedia editor to scrub his Wikipedia page to remove factual information about him that he worried might sink his candidacy, including his receiving the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for new Americans in 2011 during his time as a Yale law student.
“In case you’re wondering, yes, Paul Soros happens to be related to George Soros. This is George Soros’ brother,” Gonzales says.
But it gets worse for Ramaswamy.
His campaign also removed his participation in Ohio’s COVID-19 response team from the Wikipedia page. While on the response team, the presidential candidate stressed the importance of everyone getting vaccinated.
In August 2020 he tweeted, “Wearing a mask = personal responsibility. It’s puzzling when conservatives oppose it. But before deriding them, remember this: CDC and WHO discouraged wearing masks in March - a ‘noble lie’ to save masks for healthcare workers. Institutional lying erodes public trust in science.”
“So, it was puzzling to him why you didn’t want to cover your face with a germ-ridden piece of fabric that didn’t actually do anything except force you and your children to breathe in your own carbon dioxide,” Gonzales responds.
Two weeks after Ramaswamy paid to hide his information on Wikipedia, he announced his candidacy.
Independent reporter Jordan Schachtel also uncovered Vivek’s quest in 2020 to develop a global database for all COVID-related patient health records, including COVID testing with his company Datavant.
This would serve as a registry of private and public patient records, all without the consent of the actual patients.
“Maybe the flip-flops that you just saw don’t bother you, but I’m not sold that this guy isn’t just an incredibly gifted opportunist who wants to benefit from the political climate,” Sara says.
