Despite shit off last week’s Capitol-building insurrection/riot hitting the fan and spewing in all directions, the T-Rump this morning stayed true to form and blamed everyone/evrything for the war-like disaster but himself. He’s being an asshole all the way to the end.
The T-Rump in his first public appearance since the incident (on his way to Texas to scream wondrously about his ‘Wall’), dumped ‘whataboutism’ on BLM protests, high tech and those inbetween to contrast the violent takeover of the national Capitol — and like breating, lied his ass off:

Idiot details via CNN:
Earlier, as he departed the White House, the President denounced Democrats pursuing his historic second impeachment, seeming to imply they could provoke a violent response.
“This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it and it’s really a terrible thing that they’re doing,” he told reporters on the White House South Lawn.
“For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country, and it’s causing tremendous anger. I want no violence.”
He similarly said the decisions by Twitter, Facebook and other platforms to suspend his accounts were causing fury among his supporters — suggesting that could itself cause violence, and not his own language fanning violence among his base.
“It causes a lot of problems and a lot of anger,” he said.
“There’s always a counter-move when they do that.”
Of ‘counter-moves,’ T-Rump’s entire shit has cratered since the riot, from Twitter, to bank loans, to PGA officials saying ‘Fuck-off, to a majority of Americans wanting his orange-coated ass out of the White House immediately if not sooner.
And the quip ‘people thought.” What people? Smart lawyers? No! Smart aides? No!
Inside the White House is the shits — per Politico this morning:
A senior official described for MM the very strange scene inside the final days of the Trump White House.
The president himself is rarely seen around the West Wing, only occasionally popping into the Oval Office and mostly ignoring any official duties.
He is mostly just stewing in the residence, making phone calls, cut off from his Twitter addiction, facing another impeachment and finally resigned to leaving next week.
Official work still goes on, this person said, even as some high-level staff and Cabinet officials very publicly resign.
Some who remain view the quitters as just show-boaters looking to score PR points after the Capitol attack disaster.
If they were so righteous, this thinking goes, why didn’t they quit sooner?
And why not stay around now and help those trying to wind things down with no more meltdowns?
Despite irritation with the quitters, pretty much everyone left now mostly loathes the president, especially for his treatment of Vice President Mike Pence, who spent four years as an unwaveringly loyal supporter before Trump jammed him under the bus and turned the VP into the ultimate villain to MAGA world.
And also this morning, and also from Politico, a hardcore resignation letter from Jason Schmid, a longtime senior House Armed Services Committee staffer, which explains in no uncertain terms the horror of not only the T-Rump, but including GOP enablers:
The sad, incontrovertible truth is that the people who laid siege to the Capitol were and continue to
be domestic enemies of the Constitution of the United States.
A poisonous lie that the election was illegitimate and should be overturned inspired so called “patriots” to share common cause with white supremacists, neo-Nazis and conspiracy theorists to attack the seat of American government.
Anyone who watched those horrible hours unfold should have been galvanized to rebuke these
insurrectionists in the strongest terms.
Instead, some members whom I believed to be leaders in the defense of the nation chose to put political theater ahead of the defense of the Constitution and the Republic.
Read the full letter here.
Makes me wanna just scream, ‘What-the-fuck!’
Instead, a great cover of a great original:
Haven direction comes in 7 days, 189 hours, 11,373 minutes, and a shitload of seconds — can’t freakin’ wait…
