Tucker's new spreading lie alert:

Tucker is claiming Gonzalo Lira was murdered because he was a journalist exposing Biden’s corruption in Ukraine.
He was not. Shut down the disinformation when you see it.

Lira was an American citizen living in Ukraine and working as a dating coach who marketed himself as an expert guru training Western men to target and sleep with impoverished Eastern European women. When Russia invaded Ukraine, the sex tourism industry in Ukraine collapsed, so Lira began promoting Russian propaganda online in order to make money. He was jailed in Ukraine and died of pneumonia.

Daily Beast ran a story on Lira’s quick transformation into a Putin shill in 2022. He used to identify himself as Coach Red Pill.

“Under the name Coach Red Pill, Lira made videos and hosted digital seminars in which he offered dating, life, and relationship advice. In the manosphere, a “red-pilled” person is someone who’s realized hidden supposed truths about gender and relationships. These are usually tired stereotypes about how all women supposedly think, and reactionary ideas about the glory of traditional gender roles and relations and how their erosion screws over men.”
