Gilmore Girls alum David Sutcliffe says he was joking when he called a U.S. Capitol rioter a "great Patriot"

  • The Canadian actor was debunking a rumor that he had "stormed the capital," retweeting footage a rioter smoking weed during the U.S. Capitol takeover. "Not true - though I would have been proud to share a smoke with this great Patriot!," he tweeted. After his tweet generated controversy among Gilmore Girls, Sutcliffe made it clear he was just kidding. As EW notes, however, Sutcliffe appears to be a Trump fan. "While he has not been as publicly vocal about politics as other celebrities, Sutcliffe has recently liked tweets proclaiming 'Men's politics is best for the world" and slamming 'the authoritarian left,'" reports EW's Rachel Yang. "He also tweeted on Jan. 10 that when Donald Trump dies, he will become 'a symbol of rebellion, and replaces Che Guevara on t-shirts.'"
