RNC Speaker Scott Baio Suggests Sandy Hook and Charlottesville Were False Flags

In a tweet, actor and Republican activist Scott Baio suggested that the Sandy Hook school shooting and the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Virginia may both be hoaxes.

Baio quote-retweeted a photo that suggested Heyer’s mother and the mother of a Sandy Hook victim are the same person — asserting that she is a crisis actor in two false flag attacks.

The account Baio retweeted promotes a website called “ShadyHoaxComix” — the site is used to push the claim that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax. The website’s introductory statement reads, “Sandy Hook was fake. Any questions?”

When confronted about the insensitivity of this claim, Baio tweeted, “Where or when did I ever say that? Stop reaching for anything other than me asking 4 others thoughts.”

Baio has a lengthy history in Republican politics, as he once told Glenn Beck he worked on both Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush‘s campaigns.

Baio was one of the few Hollywood actors to endorse President Donald Trump during the campaign. He spoke at the Republican National Convention and heaped praise upon the now president. The actor is best known for playing Chachi on Happy Days and the family lawyer in the TV show Arrested Development.
