    New rule: If you brought us to this point by peddling The Big Lie, you don’t get to preach about “healing” and “unity.”

    Healing and unity always require truth and accountability.

    Too bad you can’t bottle this stuff for those with constipation.

    As far back as 2015, Trump has been connected to documented acts of violence, with perpetrators claiming that he was even their inspiration. In fact, dozens of people enacted violence in Trump’s name in the years before the Capitol attack.

    October 23, 2015: 
    After being interrupted by protesters at a campaign rally in Miami, Trump warned he’ll “be a little more violent” next time when addressing protesters. “See, the first group, I was nice. ‘Oh, take your time.’ The second group, I was pretty nice. The third group, I’ll be a little more violent."

    January 23, 2016: 
    At a campaign rally in Iowa, Trump, in describing the loyalty of his supporters, notoriously said, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and sh○○t somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”

    March 9, 2016:
    A male Trump supporter punched a male protester being escorted out of a Trump campaign rally in Fayetteville, NC. The Trump supporter was recorded on video saying he enjoyed “knocking the he// out of that big mouth” and “Yes, he deserved it. The next time we see him, we might have to ki// him.” He was arrested and charged with assault a day later.

    FEBRUARY 2016:
    "Knock the krap out of him. would you? I promise you,  I will pay your legal fees." Trump said this at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

    MARCH 2016:
    "Part of the problem is no one wants to hurt anyone anymore."  Trump said this during a rally in St. Louis as protesters were being escorted out by security.  Trump became frustrated that it was taking so long to escort the protesters out. He then said " You know, part of the reason it takes so long is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore."

    October 18, 2018: At a rally in Montana, Trump celebrated Republican Rep. Greg Gianforte, who body-slammed a reporter in May 2017, telling the crowd, “Any guy who can do a body-slam … he’s my guy.”

    Gianforte assaulted journalist Ben Jacobs after Jacobs asked him a question about the GOP health care bill, on the day before Gianforte won election. Gianforte ultimately apologized (after his spokesperson first denied the assault) and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault.

    On January 6, Rudy Giuliani addressed the crowd at Trump's "Stop the Steal" rally hours before the attack on Capitol Hill.

    During his rant, Giuliani repeated baseless claims that widespread election fraud affected the outcome of the presidential election.
    "Let's have trial by combat!!" Rudy shouted to the crowd.

    On the very day that Congress counted the electoral votes that certified President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, Trump opened up the US Capitol to an insurrection.

    He told a crowd rallying south of the White House to “walk down to the Capitol,” adding, “You will never take back our country with weakness.”

    INSTEAD OF calling them the Republican Party or the Trump Party… they should go under the banner of THE TOTAL HYPOCRITE PARTY.

    They are disgusting. And this is an American embarrassment. How could they have allowed co conspirators ( suspects ) vote to absolve themselves and enter the capitol today bypassing metal detectors? I had no idea this country was this stupid.

    The GOP must be so proud having the most impeachments in history, and the only president to be twice impeached. Couldn't have happened to a better party 👍👍
