Capitol Insurrection Donald Trump WTF?!

Trump Urges ‘MAGA Nation’ To ‘Rise Up’ On Eve Of Capitol Insurrection Anniversary

With the anniversary of the January 6 Capitol insurrection now less than 24 hours away, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump issued a statement urging his supporters to “rise up” against the government yet again.

In a statement issued via his spokesperson, Liz Harrington, on Twitter, where Trump remains permanently banned, the disgraced ex-president railed against any efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 in the United States, suggesting such measures are a burden on the people:

Be sure and note the line, “This is an outrage, and MAGA nation should rise up and oppose this egregious federal government overreach.” Rise up? Sounds more than a little like the language Trump used at his speech prior to the Capitol riots that left five people dead.

The worst president in American history had planned to hold a news conference tomorrow, but was talked out of that by people close to him. Also, since no major networks were planning to carry the presser, Donnie wouldn’t have had a captive audience to share his lies and conspiracy theories with.

Reaction to the Trump statement was swift and featured reminders that he’s facing jail time for his role in the crimes committed on Jan. 6.
