Trump exhausted every legal avenue available to him to overturn the election. Every one, but the legal path just took Trump back to the truth, that I’d won the election and he was a loser.
Well, so knowing how his mind works now, he had one, he had one act left.
One desperate act available to him, the violence of January the sixth.
Since that day, more than 1,200 people have been charged with assault in the Capitol. Nearly 900 of them have been convicted or pled guilty. Collectively to date, they have been sentenced to more than 840 years in prison.
What’s Trump done?
Instead of calling them criminals, he’s called these insurrectionists patriots. They’re patriots. And he promised to pardon them if he returns to office. Trump said that there was a lot of love on January the sixth.
In trying to rewrite the facts of January sixth, Trump was trying to steal history, the same way he tried to steal the election.
But he, we knew the truth, because we saw it with our own eyes. So it wasn’t like something, a story being told. It was on television repeatedly. We saw it with our own eyes.
Trump is now promising a full-scale campaign of revenge and retribution, his words, for some years to come.
They were his words, not mine. He went on to say he’d be a dictator on day one.
I mean, if I were writing a book of fiction, and I said an American president said that, and not in jest.
He called and I quote, the terminate, quote, this is a quote, the termination of all the rules, regulations and articles, even those found in the U.S. Constitution should be terminated if it fits his will.
It’s really kind of hard to believe.
He calls those who opposed, oppose him vermin.
He talks about the blood of America’s is being poisoned, echoing the same exact language used in Nazi Germany.
There’s no confusion about who Trump is, what he intends do.
