I read Trump was going to have a press conference on Jan 6th, and I can’t conceive of him choosing that day except to talk about how great the Capitol Hill siege was, and make sure his followers were ready for the next opportunity.

Finally we’d be done with the cognitive dissonance of Trumpers, replacing “antifa did it… but it was cool” with “Trump admits he did it, and it was cool!”


I mean, that they were literally beating up police officers with flagpoles with “Blue Lives Matter” flags still on them was kind of a hint there.


The ‘Blue Lives’ they refer to are Smurfs. /s
