Pro-Trump Rep. Tweets Bonkers Anime Style Video in Which He Battles Against Giant Biden and AOC
Far-right Congressman Paul Gosar of Arizona isn't deterred by violence. He's frequently defended the pro-Trump insurrectionists who stormed the United States Capitol in order to overthrow the peaceful transfer of power. "Stop the Steal" organizer Ali Alexander even credited Gosar with helping plan the rally that devolved into the Capitol siege.
On Monday, Gosar tweeted a bizarre anime video of him and other members of his caucus battling President Joe Biden and firebrand progressive Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, colloquially known as "AOC." The video also favorably painted border patrol officials rounding up refugees at the border.

Captioning the video with "Any anime fans out there?", Gosar tweeted an edited version opening sequence of the Japanese anime Attack on Titan, featuring him and other far-right representatives like Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Lauren Boebert of Colorado.
Just before the one minute mark, a giant with Ocasio-Cortez's faced superimposed on it is struck a death blow by Gosar. It later shows another character launching toward a giant photo of President Biden, swords drawn. It concludes with pictures of former President Trump and Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida, both of whom are under criminal investigation.
People were astonished by the unhinged video.
Happy Monday in America, where @GOPLeader McCarthy\u2019s colleague just posted a video of himself swinging two swords at President Biden. These blood thirsty losers are more comfortable with violence than voting. Keep exposing them. https://twitter.com/repgosar/status/1457493879003963398\u00a0\u2026pic.twitter.com/5BI895zvLG— Rep.

Fans of Attack on Titan were particularly miffed.
Not excited for the new season anymore, thank you.https://twitter.com/RepGosar/status/1457493879003963398\u00a0\u2026— Zefroz (@Zefroz) 1636335619
If you\u2019ve actually watched/read AoT, you find out that [SPOILERS] the titans are unwilling experiments made of the victims of xenophobia and ethnic supremacy abroad. The whole story is explicitly about the dangers of ethno-nationalism and using state power to exclude groupshttps://twitter.com/repgosar/status/1457493879003963398\u00a0\u2026— Vaush (@Vaush) 1636402939
Leave AoT alone, it already has enough slander https://twitter.com/RepGosar/status/1457493879003963398\u00a0\u2026pic.twitter.com/tWFwkgjfAy— Helix Senior (@Helix Senior) 1636337778
