Jamie Raskin Brutally Mocks ‘Mr. Snowflake’ Trump – And It’s Perfect

A day after the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection subpoenaed failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, the disgraced ex-president responded with a rambling, conspiracy-theory letter which reiterated his many lies about the 2020 election.

Trump’s letter reads in part:

“This memo is being written to express our anger, disappointment, and complaint that with all of the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on what many consider to be a Charade and Witch Hunt, and despite strong and powerful requests, you have not spent even a short moment on examining the massive Election Fraud that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, and have targeted only those who were, as concerned American Citizens, protesting the Fraud itself.”

The missive ends with this angry flourish:

“The people of this Country will not stand for unequal justice under the law, or Liberty and Justice for some. Election Day is coming. We demand answers on the Crime of the Century.”

Same bullshit, different day.

For a rebuttal, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a member of the Jan.6 committee, appeared on MSNBC and expertly mocked Trump, HuffPost reports:

“I mean, that letter, including the use of the royal ‘we,’ which was pretty jarring, is just an outrageous distraction from the reality to the extent that there’s anything substance or substantive there.”

However, Raskin was just getting warmed up, adding:

“They can’t say. They just have a feeling. And in fact, Trump uses that too in this enormously revealing letter, where he says lots of people ‘feel’ that there was fraud.

“I’m sorry. Your feelings, Mr. Snowflake, cannot dictate the course of the future of the republic. No, your feelings cannot dictate our elections.”

Game, set, and match Jamie Raskin.
