Donald John Trump’s delusion continues even as he tees it up at his posh South Florida resort.
The ex-president told Fox News that the Jan. 6 insurrection from the riotous mob of terrorists posed “zero threat.”
That brought a sharp rebuke from one of Trump’s chief defenders/enablers, former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who told CNN that Trump’s remarks are “manifestly false.”
“I was surprised to hear the president say that … Clearly, there were people who were behaving themselves and then there were people who absolutely were not,” Mulvaney told CNN.
No. They were not behaving themselves.
And yet Donald Trump continues to lie incessantly.
The riot’s aim was to stop Congress from doing its constitutional duty on Jan. 6, which was to certify the results of the presidential election. It was a violent attempted insurrection. It was an act of sedition. It was profoundly violent and dangerous!
I am no fan of Mick Mulvaney. However, I am glad to hear him speak the truth about the delusion that rumbles around in the head of his former boss.
