Those Trump flags didn’t bring themselves. Of course there was a monolithic reason that those people came


>“I think Nancy Pelosi will have a lot of questions to answer about what she knew leading up to the riot on Jan. 6,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said on Fox News last month. It’s not the loud-mouthed, fat-faced asshole who *sent* the mob, or even the insurrectionists themselves who injured and killed police officers, but Pelosi who has a lot to answer for. Riiiight.


Unfortunately for them, the entire country saw it go down live as it happened. They might as well be saying that it was a hoax filled in the same studio as the moon landing.


Everything. Republican warlords are gaslighting America about EVERYTHING.


>Some Republicans, such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), have admitted what actually happened. > >*“They stormed the Senate floor. They tried to hunt down the speaker of the House. They built a gallows and chanted about murdering the vice president,” McConnell said in February. “They did this because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on Earth ― because he was angry he’d lost an election.”* . And no one is forgetting that McConnell was the one who let the madman off the leash, and off the hook, when twice presented with opportunities to hold him accountable. McConnell’s first offense makes him complicit in Trump’s subsequent actions, culpable in the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of US citizens, a crippling of the entire nation. To convict Trump in his second opportunity, McConnell would be convicting himself. That is and will be McConnell’s legacy. He is a traitor to his oath to the Consitution, a hack who has disqualified himself to be a leader to even a flock of ducks. Were he not the jury at his own trial, Trump’s crimes would also belong to McConnell. Even those GOP members now admitting guilt are gaslighters, most not as stupidly so as Trump. They are much more covert about it.
