Laura Loomer presented strong evidence Wednesday that Ron DeSantis’s Press Secretary Brian Griffin is running a burner account under the name @MaxNordau. The account @MaxNordau has attacked Trump supporters and media outlets, including National File.
Loomer tweeted a video Wednesday that showed @MaxNordau speaking in a Twitterspace and DeSantis Communications Director Brian Griffin speaking. In the videos, Max and Brian’s voices sound identical.
So it looks like the Max Nordau account attacking me and many other patriots is a burner account run by Ron DeSantis’ Communications Director, Brian Griffin. Is Brian scared to use his real account to attack me? This is very unhealthy behavior, Brian!

Loomer also shared that tweets from @MaxNordau came from the same location as Girffins’ Kombucha Company bar tweeting, “Another dead giveaway that @MaxNordau is the sock puppet account for @BryanDGriffin, @RonDeSantis’s press secretary for his Presidential campaign is the fact that Max, which is an anonymous account that’s used to HARASS DeSantis DeTractors claims to be located ‘in between two rivers.’
Flower Crown Kombucha, the name of @BryanDGriffin’s Kombucha company is geographically located between the Hillsborough and Alafia Rivers in Florida when you look at the publicly available map (not doxxing) online.”

Griffin denied he has a burner account telling Red State, “This is a lie. I rightly defended Trump from the lies and falsehoods of the left when he was president. It’s disappointing to see the left’s playbook adopted to now lie about myself and others. I don’t do things anonymously; I put my name and face to everything I stand for. I am on Team DeSantis because I truly believe he is the best man to serve as our next president, correct course for our country, and stop the left’s agenda. As conservatives, let’s debate the issues and disavow the tactics of the left.”
However, Griffin’s denial did not include any facts that disprove anything Loomer is stating about the account @MaxNordau.
The account @MaxNordau recently attacked National File tweeting, “Between Francis and Charles, does National File exclusively hire people who have something wrong with them?”
Interestingly, while Griffin publicly declares himself to be “An advocate for Christ” in his online profiles, the Max Nordau account describes itself as a “Muscular Jew” and is named for a 19th and 20th-century Jewish Zionist.

Pro-DeSantis journalist Chris Nelson was quick to jump to the defense of @MaxNordau and Brian Griffin. However, Nelson did not offer any proof that Loomer’s accusation was wrong. Instead, Nelson insulted Loomer and anyone agreeing with her.
Interestingly, Chris Nelson obtained private photos of National File Reporter Charles Downs’ family and began to tweet photo-edited versions of them Saturday morning after Downs covered Ron DeSantis raising money off of a child mutilation lobbyist in D.C.
The fact that Nelson is always the first to attack anyone criticizing DeSantis or high-level Team DeSanits staffers is another red flag pointing to the fact that Loomer is correct about Griffin running a burner account.
Previously, Nelson incorrectly challenged the accuracy of a National File report on Ron DeSantis signing legislation that allowed for the forced injection of Floridians with COVID-19 jabs “by any means necessary.”
Nelson publicly challenged National File reporter Frankie Stockes, the author of the article, to debate the topic with him, but later declined an offer to appear on a nationally-syndicated news show to do just that, and shied away from a Twitter debate as well.
