Jordan Klepper Grills Jan 6 Trump Supporter Confesses ‘I Just Got Out Of A Cult’
Last week, The Daily Show aired footage of its intrepid reporter, Jordan Klepper, back at the crime scene: the United States Capitol on the one-year anniversary of the January 6 uprising (as you may recall, Klepper was was in the crowd on that fateful day and confront some pro-Trump rioters moments before they stormed the Capitol in an unsuccessful attempt to prevent the 2020 presidential election from being certified). The reunion witnessed Klepper Faces Republican Representative Matt Gaetz, calling Trump’s promoter and evangelist a “Big Lie”—who was also involved in an underage sexual conspiracy-“bull-headed kid.”
Well, on Wednesday, Klepper was back — only this time, he focused on Trump supporters, who had gathered for vigil outside the prison that housed the insurgents on January 6.
One man told Klepper: “I never went to a protest event before the 2020 presidential election. “I was completely consumed. It took over my life. For three months, I slept in my car. I went from rally to rally, from #StopTheSteal to #StopTheSteal, for three months, sleeping in my car, to see the evidence. And then I had to recover. I had PTSD. So it took me a long time to find myself again. I feel like I just came out of a cult.”
But then things took… a rather unexpected turn when Klepper asked the man if he believed the election was stolen from Trump.
