Jacob Wohl, the Trump internet activist cashing in on conspiracy theories, explained - 2019-04-30
First Twitter kicked him off their platform for proudly describing his plan to use fake accounts to influence the 2020 presidential election. Then he was barred from presenting at CPAC, so he was forced to lay out his latest unfounded claim about a Trump nemesis in the lobby of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. And just this week, Wohl attempted to launch a smear campaign against presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg using false allegations of sexual assault, a campaign that collapsed almost immediately.
Wohl, 21, rose to mainstream prominence earlier this year, when he claimed he had proof that Russia investigation special counsel Robert Mueller has been credibly accused of sexual assault. He did not have said proof. Instead, it turned out Wohl had made up the entire allegation in a dumbfounding display of abject nonsense.
Wohl is a die-hard Donald Trump supporter whose off-the-wall claims are all about standing by the president. Before the Mueller debacle, Wohl's eventual ban from Twitter, and now an attempted smear campaign aimed at a Democratic presidential candidate, he was best known for tweets about how Trump should be president for life, or how liberals in "hipster coffee shops" secretly love Trump, and occasionally accusing presidential candidate Kamala Harris of being ineligible to run for the White House (which was false).
