    Seems Dear Leader's condemnation of the insurrectionists that were following his lead are feeling like they've been had. apparently they actualy believed Trump cared about them more than his own skin.

    Its a tsunami of irony.

    LOL!

    When the rats leave the sinking ship, it's everyone for themselves.

    trump is likely too worried about the hundreds of millions that is coming due. How will he grift now?

    His name is toxic on products
    His base is too poor to rent his hotels
    His base doesn’t read and he is too stupid to write a book

    Hoe long before bankruptcy # — what is he up to now? Four? — is filed. Hopefully they seize his and his children’s assets. While I would prefer they rot in prison, poverty (well, to them) would be acceptable.

    "Brenda" said this, "Magafree" said that. Yawn.

    This is the state of news reporting today. Social media comments that in many cases are generated by the "50 cent Army" and the like pass for news. Pathetic really. But hey, maybe the fake news will report what "jet3534" had to say about "Old Yeller" Pence.

    The ship has already sunk - has been since about a week after the election - Trumps ship that is. That he does not go gently into that good night .. is fodder for late night comedy.

    So it was a foregone conclusion already.. this is just icing on the cake -- a grand finale - the soap Opera must have a big finish - Donald would have it no other way - as director and front man for this clown show.

    Unfortunately - his idea to incite a mob - went awry - and so the dram a continues .. but it is of no moment - as Trump is no longer President - and has no influence other than for a few more days -- and even this is not really influence due to defections - including VP-Pence .. he is alone - hiding in a room - with a few cling -ons.

    What is of consequence - is Clown Biden claiming that this riotous mob was "Terrorism"

    Is Biden trying to follow the path that Trump Laid out .. same methods - get the masses in a fervor - to distract and divide ?

    Either that or Biden is truly an idiot of epic proportions.

    Option 3 anyone ? - is there a life-line for Biden here anywhere ? ..

    Then his Energy pick is against Pipelines - another dumb and dumber path.

    Not off to a good start .. Mr. B .. "Is there anybody out there" .. You know the song :)

    I must admit your method of outright ad hom dismissal of everything you don't want to hear is an effective method of intellectual and emotional barricading. I see the attraction in building ones own reality.,

    And to top it off, Dominion just announced it is suing Trump's lawyer, Powell, for $1.3 BILLION for defamation. And you know that Trump will be served
    with the same papers the day he leaves office. Hilarious.

    There's a whole bunch of trumpian enablers running away as fast as possible. The silver lining in all this is that the really scummy racist fascist extreme nationalist lowlifes that trump empowered to crawl out from under their rocks have publicly declared themselves and shall soon be stuffed back under the rocks of their native habitat.

    I predict that a few of those good ol' boys are going to be participating in the remake of bambi meets godzilla when the Biden administration finally takes these white trash lowlifes seriously.

    Be honest. I don't think you really believe anonymous comments by people on social media constitute a reliable barometer of what Trump supporters think. I am not building my own reality. I have accepted arguments here on PF from people who disagreed with me and admitted they were right. I do try to practice critical thinking. Real news is factual in tone. Not emotionally charged. A valid news story answers the "5Ws" one of which being "who." A story stating that Brenda said this on social media or magaman said that is not news.

    I think the rats were thrown off after the chief rat took the only life raft and jumped while no one was looking.

    Well said.

    I would add a quote from Howard Stern who said that the people who admire Trump the most are also the people he despises the most.

    This is one of the most contradictory facts of the MAGA movement.

    Stern once said that Trump was probably the best-interviewed subject that he had ever had or that even could exist. "...he says exactly whatever comes into his mind at the moment" and another commentator said. "If Trump was water, he wouldn't even get your shoes wet". One has to wonder if Trump isn't so beloved by his less intellectually gifted admirers because he is so much like them.

    The supreme irony of this is that Trump himself has been prominent in the movement to sue for political comments

    The words "insurrection" "coup" is being bandied about in hyperbole. It's a ridiculous and dangerous practice. Ironically, it's the exact same language that Trumpeters used during the impeachment, and it no more applied then than it does now.

    Meanwhile, I'm just leaning back and watching as every election year the statist duopoly cultists raise the stakes until everything burns.

    Good on you.

    Geez Jonsa, you've been here longer than I have - you know that's like maybe 20% of the posts on this site. There's one poster here; it's like 50% of his posts.

    Hmm - I talked to my sister today about something completely unrelated and we eventually got around to what was happening in DC with her being a Trump supporter - and I say this in the past tense now because after what just happened she gave up on him - something I never thought she'd do because she was in the tank for him.

    Everything trump touches turns to ****.
    This is the perfect way for his presidency to end. Failure, humiliation, embarrassment.
    There is some justice in the world.
    Now if we can get rid of his lapdogs in Congress, we can remove more of trump’s stain on our country.

    I keep hearing about “if they were BLM protestors this would have been different.”
    Really?
    Have you seen Portland? What about CHAZ? What about an entire police precinct being overrun in Seattle? What about burning buildings and killing of innocent and uninvolved persons as casualties of rioting all in the BLM/Antifa contexts.
    Stop making it about race! A white female was killed by capitol police and a white capitol officer was killed and what does that prove about race and rioting!?
    The cognitive dissonance is there for all to see and that goes for BOTH “SIDES!” Enough with the confirmation bias: there are facts and there are conjecture. Patiently and courageously seek the former.
    As for the media, the pretending that both various anchors and politicians didn’t literally call for “unrest in the street” over the last year while trying to cram a year of blame on one incident is intellectually infantile.
    That said, the fact that our capitol building was nearly overrun during an election certification is dishearteningly unreal and embarrassingly unprecedented. Also, such lawlessness and violence on a fool’s errand is something I squarely stand against.
    I hope the burn resulting from fanning the flames of identity politics teaches us to extinguish this before it spreads.
    God help us.

    should I consider your facile ad hom dismissals a reliable barometer of your own thoughts?

    As for your attempt an explaining journalism, perhaps you should reconsider the fact that a story about the motivations and rationale of the person in question PRECISELY addresses more than 1 of the 5 W's.
