The week has been a year long. It was only 6 days ago that we heard Trump on the phone with Georgia election officials and the GA Secretary of State, trying to force him to rig the election results of that state. And we don’t even cover that on this episode.
That’s how crazy the week has been.
Then we watched in real time, live on TV, the President of the United States call the in-coming President illegitimate, shame his own VP Mike Pence, and then encourage a mob to go to the capitol to “help the weaker Republicans in congress.” Then America’s mayor, (and equally idiotic lawyer), Rudy Giuliani said we need “Trial by Combat”.
The crowd gave Trump and Rudy what they wanted.
Then we watched in horror as an Air Force veteran along with hundreds of others, seduced by ridiculous lies about stolen elections and stupid conspiracy theories about deep state actors, break into our center of government to attack a system that has stood the test of time for over 200 years. She paid for that terrible decision with her life.
That horror was followed by seditionists and traitors wearing MAGA gear, attack and eventually kill Capitol Police Officer and National Guard Staff Sargent Brian Sicknick, reportedly beating him with a fire extinguisher.
All live in real time.
It’s been a week of weeks. And I’m afraid we may not be done.
Coup d’état by any other name…
