I don't really think the debate is around Trump organising the riots, it's more encouraging them and even as they happened just stoking them further. Rudy told the protestors on the day to go into combat if necessary.

Still fresh in my memory is how he said nothing as the attack was underway then released a statement via his iPhone about how the election was stolen and the fight continues. That was when a lot of people realised he was happy to sink to any level to retain power.

There's an element of hypocrisy here though from the Democrats. A few months back, they were encouraging BLM to burn down cities

Not sure I've heard of politicians being self-serving and hypocritical before? :lol:

The Democrats tried to remove him from office using fair means or foul from the minute he was elected (which is probably why so many believed in the possibility of election fraud this time).

Remember it was the Russians that rigged the 2016 election (and Brexit!).

'I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard'

Yes he shouldn't have held a rally, yes he should've conceded and the GOP would've most likely held onto the senate, yes Guiliani was way out of line, but does that make Trump's actions criminal?

The media now have the confidence that they can bash someone for 4 years and get the result they want and they're still screaming for impeachment with less than 2 weeks left.

You'd have thought with Biden due to be President and his rhetoric being 'let's unite as one country' that he'd want to move on and quickly forget Trump but I think we've learnt that the left are so obsessed.

This was Biden speaking the other day:

"Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild." — President-elect Biden

frank - you forgot to actually watch the video on that tweet. it explains in detail what the headline means. we're all guilty of this at times i guess, grabbing the byline and presenting it as the entirety...

The hypocrisy is so scary, just now Pelosi said 'no one is above the law' - yeah what about when you helped impose California's strict covid policy but then was seen without a mask in a salon!

People are just sick of these politicians/celebrities which is what draws people to Trump.
