  1. His actual quote was “with hundreds of thousands of patriots”, not just “hundreds”. This is important because it is demonstrably untrue, and shows that he really believed the false narratives of the former president. He followed his leader into delusion and away from reality: and that is the struggle which the nation now faces. How to bring people back from former President Trump’s land of imagination and into reality.


  2. Remarkable how all these brave insurrectionists have now gone into whine mode—-the very thing they accuse liberals of. Let em all rot in jail.


  3. I wonder if he’ll keep his promise when they try to take his gun away for being a felon. “I will die before I give up my second amendment”.
