Ex-White House press secretary: Trump “Gleefully” watched the uprising on television, pressed “back” to see people fight again

How did you spend January 6, 2021? Did you sit glued to your phone and watch in fearless horror? Press update on news pages every five seconds? Maybe you texted the White House asking the President of the United States to stop the violence? Or maybe you were hiding in a safe place while rioters shouted for your death? For his part, the one person who could have done anything to stop one of the worst days in U.S. history conspicuously chose not to. We are talking about, of course Donald Trump, as we know from various accounts, the uprising he encouraged developed on television, refusing all prayers, including from his children, to take action while waiting for hours after the coup attempt began to tell the troublemakers to “go home “but also” I “is very special” and “we love you” and “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide victory by election is so unpretentious & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have become badly and unfairly treated for so long. “

And just in case anyone from Team Trump is trying to claim at some point in the future that the then president did not like what he saw on television, or that he was deeply concerned about the safety of lawmakers and Capitol personnel inside the building, here is this:

He is a former White House press secretary and former chief of staff Stephanie Grisham makes it clear to CNN that not only was Trump not disturbed by a riot that would result in the deaths of five people and democracy hanging by a thread, but that he absolutely loved what he saw, so much so that he felt the need to to see it again, as the deeply disturbed individual he is. Trumps will no doubt argue that Grisham’s recollections are the “fake news” about a disgruntled employee (whom they have employed for more than four years), but, inconvenient to them, it has to do with the senator’s. Ben Sasse, who said in an interview on January 8, 2021, that senior White House officials had told him that as the uprising unfolded, “Trump walked around the White House confused as to why other people on his team were not so excited. as he was, as you had troublemakers pushing against the Capitol police and trying to get into the building. It was happening. He was happy. “

Everything does Joe Biden‘s comments on the anniversary of the awful day more than reasonable, if not harsh enough. “The former president of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election,” Biden said from the hall near the floor of the house, which the rebels went through on January 6. “He has done it because he values ​​power. Above the principle, because he sees his own interests as more important than the interests of his country and the interests of America, and because his shattered ego means more to him than our democracy or our constitution.” Biden refused to name Trump by name, reminding the country that “Even before the first ballot was cast, the former president sowed preventive doubts about the election result. He built his lie over months. It was not based on any facts. He was just looking for an excuse – a pretext – to cover up the truth. ” Turning the knife, Biden added: “He’s not just a former president. He is a defeated former president – defeated by a margin of over 7 million of your votes in a full and free and fair election. ” Referring to the absurd claim by Trump and his supporters that the mob that attacked the Capitol represents “the nation’s true patriots,” Biden asked, “Is that what you thought when you looked at the mob that searched the Capitol for property? literally did feces in hallways, tearing through desks of senators and delegates, chasing members of Congress? patriots? Not in my opinion … Those who stormed this Capitol and those who incited and incited and those who urged them to to do so, kept a dagger in the throat of America – against American democracy. They did not come here out of patriotism or principles. They came here in rage – not in the service of America, but rather in the service of one man. “

A man who apparently cheered on them from the sidelines.
