It’s all over but the crying: James O’Keefe claps back at Maddow’s ‘extortion’ claim with hilarious TikTok

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has had many slings and arrows thrown at him for his journalistic work, but he’s never said he’s going to take it lying down.

So when MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow effectively accused the organization of extorting President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, O’Keefe decided to respond as only he can.

Armed with only TikTok and a pack of dry ramen, O’Keefe gave Maddow a gentle yet firm thrashing that will last for quite a while.


Crunching on some uncooked ramen noodles (which is a debate by itself) O’Keefe sits as the segment plays behind him in the video. He’s quick to point out that what Maddow conveniently sees as “extortion” is actually a standard journalistic practice of asking for a comment from the subject of a story before it’s published.

He then notes that someone reached out to him for the same reason before their story ran.

Twitter users were howling at the video, and some questioned his choice of cuisine:

Even if you’re not particularly into TikTok videos, this is definitely one of the ones that is a must-see.
