Trump also predictably blew Jan. 6 as a “one-sided witch hunt” and said the House of Representatives committee investigating the attack was running a “ridiculous story” about his involvement.
“There is no clearer example of the threatening spirit that has engulfed the American left than the infamous show organized by the Commission for the Abolition of Choice.” Trump blamed. “They are with the people. They are frauds. “Each of them is a radical hater of the left, he hates you all, he hates me even more than you, but I’m just trying to help you.
It doesn’t matter that the vast majority of witnesses were staunch Republicans, especially loyalists from Trump’s inner circle, who held senior positions in both his administration and his 2020 re-election campaign.
But amid his indiscriminate one-hour chatter on Friday, Trump devoted a lot of energy to destroying his former vice president, calling him a “robot” and a “human conveyor belt” for accepting legal advice that he doesn’t have sole power. to cancel the elections.
One of the biggest bombs since January. Six hearings are Donald Trump’s contemptuous disregard for the physical safety of his own vice president.
Jan. 6 Vice President Liz Cheney of Wyoming transmitted in one hearing that Trump suggested that his supporters might “have the right idea” after the terrorists erupted in the chanting “Hang Mike Pence!” Trump added that Pence “deserved it.”
But this crowd did not come to this conclusion in a vacuum. Trump sparked them in rage, first raising the hopes of his supporters that the two men “completely agree” that the Vice-President has the power to act. “
Trump betrayed this complete fabrication the day before January. 6 attack. In the afternoon of Jan. 5, Trump too tweets“The Vice-President shall have the power to reject fraudulently elected voters. “
On the day of the rally, Trump began beating the coup drum again around 6:00 a.m. “If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes in our place, we will win the presidency. Many countries want to de-certify the mistake they made in verifying false and even fraudulent numbers in a process that is NOT approved by their national legislatures (which it should be). Mike can send him back! ” he tweeted.
During his speech to the crowd gathered at Ellipse around noon, Trump again painted Pence as a fulcrum for the cancellation of the election.
“Mike Pence, I hope you will uphold the good of our Constitution and the good of our country, and if you do not, I will be very disappointed in you.” Trump saidpreparing the participants in the rally for the grave betrayal he already knew was likely to come.
In fact, January. The 6th Commission revealed this week that none of the early drafts of Trump’s speech even mentioned Pence. Trump had simply set out to direct the crowd against Pence.
After the mob broke the Capitol and Pence failed to take action, Trump sent another tweet
Mike Pence did not have the courage to do what needed to be done to protect our country and our constitution, giving states a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, rather than the fraudulent or inaccurate ones previously asked to certify. The United States wants the truth!
Within minutes, pro-Trump terrorists were incensed when they repeated Trump’s tweet through megaphones and concluded that Pence’s betrayal was already punishable by death.
So when the death chants finally erupted and Trump assumed they “had the right idea,” he was just congratulating himself on a job well done.
Based on his remarks to evangelicals on Friday, Trump’s only regret seems to be that his supporters have not done their job.
