Slap my forehead. Well...The highest Executive authority in the land created a lie and instructed an irate mob to fight like hell to change US election result (not ever in a kind “pretty-Please mannerjand now did his damnest to ensure this fired up crew had as many weapons as possible as they arrived at the Capitol. (His disdain for weapon checks that day. )Trump then Knowing full well some of them may kill Mike Pence or Nancy Pelosi if they made their way in. Very likely this would not happened had he conceded the clearly evident loss. He may not be legally culpable, but he's morally culpable . It’s this unethical, Lawful Evil, no man’s land where he seems to have made his career. I’ll place some responsibility on the Libs that didn’t see this ahead of time and put some countermeasures in place.

To me , it’s a more direct line of cause-effect deceit than COVID.,in which he denied it’ s existence, mode of transmission, and severity all while 1,000,000 Americans died on his watch

Oh, it 100% wouldn't have happened without Trump's direction. It was so obviously a top-down, all-hands-on-deck effort extending into every possible avenue of action to keep Trump in power.

And I think he is legally culpable. I predict DoJ indicts him after the midterms, but I'm sure he'll never see the inside of a jail cell. He'll stall the court system until 2025, and campaign on the accusations that it's yet another witch hunt, and unless dems somehow keep the white house, then he either pardons himself or gets a pardon.

At this point, I'm not sure if Trump or DeSantis emerges as the eventual nominee. To anyone hoping for DeSantis, I guess I trust him slightly more with the nuclear codes, but he would be an even more effective fascist than Trump. kleinbl00 thinks that DeSantis is simply too uncharismatic to hold the attention span of the GOP voting base, but that issue might be taken care of with a DeSantis-Palin/Boebert/Greene ticket. Or DeSantis-Trump. Just kidding, Trump would never settle for being VP. No idea who the democrats will try to run, but if it's Biden or Harris, that'll be a GOP victory. Not that winning at the polls will necessarily matter after SCOTUS rules how we're all worried they will on Moore vs. Harper next year. I think it's not a question of if we lose our democracy, moreso how fast.

Fascist fucks and their "libertarian" enablers. Can't think of a more pathetic alliance.

lol anyway, I probably wouldn't say that so bluntly if I thought there was any chance that 1 mg was planning on returning. He must've really hated the information we peddled.
