The soon to be impeached for the second time President Trump insists he has no responsibility for the January 6, 2021 "Save America" insurrection. Keep in mind, President Trump in his own demented mind has never been wrong in his entire life.
President's sociopathic, psychotic behavior was on full display this morning as he left the White House to head to Texas. He insists "people," "they" and "articles" being published are saying he didn't do anything wrong and did not set off the insurrection on January 6, 2021, one of the darkest days in U.S. history.
Keep in mind, President Trump in his own mind has never been wrong about anything in his entire life. So why should he think differently that no one else thinks of him doing anything wrong or without impropriety. At least in his own mind. He also wasn’t wrong about the thousands of lies over the last four years or how he represents 43 percent of American far differently than Americans that don’t agree with his policies. And he never incited his mob of supporters to take action at the Capitol to show there support of his presidency.
Maggie Haberman, White House correspondent for The New York Times and a political analyst for CNN, said on Tuesday during an interview with CNN host Alisyn Camerota confirmed that President Donald Trump was "pleased" watching his supporters riot at the United States Capitol building. While Camerota seemed shocked by Haberman's confirmation of POTUS45's glee at seeing thousands of his MAGA supporters forcibly invading the capital, assaulting capital police, looting, committing murder, and calling for Vice President Pence to be hung. Many of Trump's political and personal enemies have been predicting he would resort to violence even after 62 unsuccessful local, federal, and Supreme Court challenges to the election outcome.
We are now learning that soon to be impeached for the second time President not only loved what he saw. He ignored pleas for help from Congress members to send law enforcement or National Guard back up and lied to the American people during his early evening January 6th video, when he claimed he sent help as soon as it was requested. He would have been very happy to see Vice President Mike Pence hung from the neck in the gallows with a noose set up by some of his "Save America" rioters.
During the CNN interview, Maggie Haberman disputed reports that President Trump was transfixed like a toddler by TV images of his supporters violently attacking the Capitol. She said the truth was much uglier: Namely, the President was enjoying what he was seeing.
"He was pleased because it was people fighting on his behalf."
"He was pleased because he liked the scene. He was pleased because it was delaying the certification of the Electoral College vote."
Haberman added that the president "knew what was happening" but "just didn't want to do anything" to stop it.
An incredulous CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked Haberman…
"Did he understand that they could have been killed [in addition to the five people who died because of the riot]?"
"Did he understand that they brought in those, you know, wrist ties and that, yeah, and that people could have been killed?"
Haberman responded by pointing out that POTUS45…
"Was receiving real-time updates about what was happening but was largely unmoved until he learned that the riot could negatively impact him personally."
Haberman explained that…
"According to my sources... is that he was told that he would have legal exposure based on what was going on because of what he said at the rally that preceded it. It was the only thing that really seemed to snap him out of it."
Today we know President Trump accepts no responsibility for the January 6, 2021 insurrection and regrets releasing the video that day in which he called for "peace."
