@BillW,
It would be a bad strategical political precedent to jail Trump in spite of all the dumb **** **** he did.

As for the amount of stupid I would be inclined to say that he is barely above his voters level, and that is why they connect so well.

Sociology would explain why ppl will forgive anything when it comes to "one of us" mentality!

@hightor,
They don’t have to try to run out the clock, or anything else. They don’t need a legal strategy; hell, they might not even need lawyers! Minutes after the subpoenas were issued, Trump and co. made the statement that they aren’t going to comply. AND THERE IS NOT ANY ENFORCEMENT EVEN BEING THREATENED.

This should alarm anyone with half a brain. I mean doesn’t‘subpoena’ literally mean UNDER PENALTY?! And the republicans are proving AGAIN that there is no law that they are obliged to obey.

Trump claims Biden 'used my name' to 'divide America' in Capitol riot anniversary speech where Biden didn't mention Trump's name once

Trump raged about Biden and the 2020 election in a lengthy statement on the Capitol riot anniversary.

He claimed that Biden in his earlier speech "used my name" to "try to further divide America."

Quote:
Former President Donald Trump released a rambling statement on Thursday excoriating President Joe Biden's 25-minute speech commemorating the first anniversary of the deadly Capitol riot.

"Biden, who is destroying our Nation with insane policies of open Borders, corrupt Elections, disastrous energy policies, unconstitutional mandates, and devastating school closures, used my name today to try to further divide America," the statement began.

But Biden didn't mention Trump's name once in his speech, instead referring to his predecessor as "the defeated former president" and blaming him for the violence that unfolded at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Biden went on to say that Trump "can't accept he lost" the election "because his bruised ego matters more to him than our democracy or our Constitution."

"Even though that's what 93 United States senators, his own attorney general, his own vice president, governors, and state officials in every battleground state have all said he lost," Biden said. "That's what 81 million of you did when you voted for a new way forward."

Asked afterward why he didn't say Trump's name in his speech, Biden replied, "I did not want it to turn into a contemporary political battle between me and the [former] president."

Trump in his statement went on the attack the Biden administration's immigration policy, foreign policy, and COVID-19 plan, as well as the House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection.

He also continued to spread lies about the results of the 2020 general election, falsely claiming it was "rigged" and that it "is leading to our Country destruction."

"Just look at the numbers, they speak for themselves," Trump said, though it was unclear which numbers he was referring to. He has repeatedly pointed to the fact that he received more votes in the 2020 election than any other incumbent in US history — a little more than 74 million — but Biden beat him by nearly seven million votes, securing both the popular vote and the Electoral College.

Despite Trump and his allies' claims of widespread voter fraud and election malfeasance, bipartisan and nonpartisan election and cybersecurity experts confirmed that the 2020 election was in fact the safest and most secure in US history despite a huge influx of mail-in voting amid the pandemic.

Biden's victory was also certified by all 50 states and the Electoral College, and nearly every lawsuit the Trump campaign and Republicans filed contesting the results in battleground states resulted in a defeat or a dismissal. Still, the former president maintains that the election was unfairly stolen from him and that Biden is an illegitimate president.

Trump has also repeatedly hinted at mounting a 2024 presidential campaign, sparking debate about if he's serious about running again.

But Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, thinks it's all bluster.

"His insatiable need for attention is one reason he continues to flaunt this disingenuous 2024 run," Cohen told Insider in an interview last year. "The other is he's making more money doing that than anything he has ever done before."

But ultimately, "he'll say he's not going to run again because of bipartisan hatred for him or because of the Democrats or because he doesn't want to put his family through any more," Cohen said. "He cannot stomach the notion of being a two-time loser, but he will continue to grift until the very last second."

Trump is a dum dum.

I think it makes sense to blame everything on him an entire year after he's not president anymore. Everything bad happening right now is his fault.


I say ya gotta give Trump his due. He may be stupid as a sack of rocks, but at least he is smarter than most of his supporters.

Trump has ruined war movies starring Hitler for me. It used to be rather comforting watching a movie with Hitler in it and feeling safe and distant from such evil, but now I realize that it is closer than we think.

I just watched the movie, Downfall, about the last days of Hitler in his bunker, and I couldn't help but think how easily Trump could have taken his place in the movie, and, except for the appearances, how similar the two acted and sounded. How all these people and Generals were so obsequious and cowed in his presence reminded me that many Americans would stand in line for hours and hours just to get the chance to heil that little psychotic ****, Trump.

@coluber2001,
Yeah, someone needs to take him out. (lol) Won't be me since I don't own a gun, but if they could assassinate Abe and JFK, RK, MLK, and try others, why not Trump? What's the hold up? What's wrong with you all down there? lol And line up others at the same time - Rand Paul, Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Robt Kennedy Jr... Get the Saudis on it!

You're only allowed to threaten Democrat politicians like Sarah Palin did with rifle sights.

@Mame,
It's handcart, it's a reference to the plague, Bring out yer dead an' all that.
That's where the phrase originates, hand basket is a common eggcorn.

@izzythepush,
Well, that's how we say it here, wrong or not. Is a handcart a wheelbarrow?

@Mame,
The term dates back to the plague so it's quite old. Wheelbarrow is more recent, but would never be used in such a phrase because of alliteration and that.

I wasn't being nasty I was trying to be helpful, sorry if I came across a bit snotty.

The comedian Dave Gorman does a lot on eggcorns, the term comes from a common misspelling of acorn.

One eggcorn used a lot is tenderhooks instead of tenterhooks, but the one that caused most fun was scapegoat. A lot of people put an e in front but other than the spelling use the word correctly, but not all.

Dave Gorman found one post online which read something like this. "I hate my job I feel trapped, I need to escape goat."

@izzythepush,
You didn't come across as nasty or snotty, izzy - at least, I didn't take it that way. So, a handcart IS a wheelbarrow? I'll assume so.

Funny thing - I worked with a woman in the library who pronounced it 'liberry", can you believe that?

Now, that would make for a cute bookstore cafe name, Liberry.
