Capitol Insurrection Donald Trump WTF?!

Daft Marjorie Taylor Greene Claims Incriminating Jan. 6 Texts Prove ‘Trump Is Innocent’

Ever since she opened her mouth for the first time on the floor of the House of Representatives, it’s been painfully clear that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. As a matter of fact, she’s just a couple of IQ points brighter than a bag of hammers.

But something Greene said Wednesday during an appearance on extreme right-wing television network One America News (OAN) may well qualify the Georgia Republican for a spot in the Dumbass Hall of Fame.

According to Greene, the text messages from people such as Donald Trump Jr., Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and others are proof that the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president is innocent and so is everyone that allegedly conspired with him to orchestrate a coup on January 6, 2021:

“I think the text messages just completely show that President Trump is innocent. All of us are innocent. The riot shouldn’t have happened and we were all against it just like we’ve said all along.”

A couple of things about Congresswoman Greene’s deeply-flawed logic.

First of all, Trump waited hours after those texts were sent to him before he finally posted a video message on social media telling the insurrectionists to disperse. That doesn’t show any form of innocence whatsoever.

Secondly, be sure and notice that Greene said, “All of us are innocent.” Why does she feel a need to add that unless she’s worried more information is about to be released that will implicate her and others in the GOP who may have been willing co-conspirators and had a hand in the murder of a Capitol police officer, which just so happens to be a capital crime that gets most defendants the death penalty?

Yes, Greene is an imbecile, but her remarks on OAN are the sort of thing that leads attorneys to tear their hair out in frustration.

Nice try, Marj, but it appears you just screwed yourself in royal fashion. Good work, moron.
