Jenna Ellis, if you’re not familiar with her, is one of the defendants in the Georgia election interference case alongside Donald Trump. She recently made headlines by accepting a plea deal. As a former lawyer for the Trump campaign, Ellis pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements. This felony charge is related to the election claims that were spread by Ellis and other Trump lawyers in December 2020. This marks the third plea deal in the case.
During an unplanned hearing in Atlanta, Ellis, visibly moved, distanced herself from Trump’s unprecedented efforts to overturn the 2020 election. She expressed profound regret for her actions and acknowledged her lack of involvement. This plea follows similar admissions from Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro in the ongoing case. All three individuals have agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and provide testimony against Trump and other significant individuals involved.
Ellis tearfully apologized, implicating Rudy Giuliani in a state crime connected to false voter fraud theories. This development marks a significant advancement for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who initially charged 19 people in August. Four individuals have now pleaded guilty. As part of the plea agreement, Ellis is prohibited from posting about the case on social media during the proceedings. Additionally, unrelated disciplinary proceedings in Colorado uncovered admissions of making false statements in post-election public remarks.
After severing ties with Trump, Ellis has thrown her support behind Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the 2024 Republican presidential primary.
But that’s not what’s got people buzzing about her recent social media post. In her latest post, she’s throwing shade at Tucker Carlson, which has sparked quite a commotion in the comment section.
Tucker is just a paid Trump spox now and its incredibly sad to watch. https://t.co/vopU7L26vW

The response from X users varied from amused eye-rolls to questioning her choice of when she consumed beverages. Some people called her a paid tool, while others compared her to Benedict Arnold. It’s interesting to see the wide range of reactions that can be received when engaging in political commentary.
Within the replies to her comment, a small poll was conducted to gauge the sentiment of the majority of the audience. Take a look at the image below to see the results.
The online peanut gallery is having a blast, with comments ranging from accusations of soul-selling to speculating about Tucker’s supposed employment history. Ah, the wonders of social media commentary – where opinions and memes flow freely.
