Three weeks after Donald Trump sent his seditionist hordes to assault the United States Congress, he and his confederates in the Republican Party and right-wing press are continuing their cowardly and dishonest evasion of responsibility. They assert that the American people should just “move on” and forget about the treasonous storming of the Capitol that killed five people, injured scores of others, and defiled democracy.

Chief among the Trump apologists is Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s addled attorney who can’t even represent him because he’s also likely to be indicted. Giuliani was interviewed on Steve Bannon’s radio show where he demonstrated why no one in their right mind would hire him as their lawyer. He sought to dismiss the charges against Trump by pointing his bony finger of blame toward others and constructing a thoroughly fictional scenario for which he provided zero evidence. His babbling led to this exchange with a rather baffled Bannon:
Giuliani: The biggest problems were caused by Antifa. That’s where the shooting took place. That was surrounded by all Antifa people. So how can he be held responsible for a whole thing that was planned days before he was gonna speak, that has a mixture of people that hate him and people that support him.
Bannon: But who’s the guy working with the Lincoln Project?
Giuliani: I don’t know if I can reveal his name because we have that from anonymous sources. But he worked in the past for Romney.
Bannon: Okay, hang on for a second. This is why we’re getting blown up all the time. You can’t throw a charge out there like that and then say I got a double-secret probation guy that I can’t mention, but he worked for Romney and worked for the Lincoln Project.

In Trumplandia, if you’ve lost Bannon you’ve sailed off the edge of the flat Earth and fallen into a black hole of conspiracy crackpottery. Giuliani’s accusations against Antifa fall flat, mainly because it’s an organization that is as real as the Legion of Doom. And his libel of the Lincoln Project doesn’t go anywhere either because there isn’t a scintilla of proof to back it up. To the contrary, most of the seditionists who have been arrested have already affirmed their devotion to Trump as the motivation for their crimes.
Furthermore, Giuliani wonders how Trump could be held responsible for a violent uprising that was planned prior to his speech at the rally. That’s an easy one. Trump was a participant in those planning sessions and his campaign even paid the organizers. The rally address wasn’t a coincidental public appearance. It was the climax of a collaborative plot.
It’s also notable that Giuliani refused to name his alleged source because he was “anonymous.” He might want to confer with his client who has distinct opinions about anonymous sources. In August of 2018 Trump tweeted, “When you see ‘anonymous source,’ stop reading the story, it is fiction!”
So this is what it’s come to. Rudy Giuliani is disgorging preposterous conspiracy theories to absolve Trump of his obvious criminal culpability. He can’t prove a word of it, much like his sixty plus lawsuits trying to to overturn the election, for which he claimed that losing was actually part of his master plan. And for his trouble he’s getting slapped down by veteran Trump-fluffer Steve Bannon. What a world.

Gawdstrewth. Does one laugh hysterically until one cries, or what? TrumpetArse made the WORD ‘Antifa’ a threat, something for his little zombies to cling to as the arbiter of all that was wrong in the Donniverse. A WORD. All he had to do was say it. Or tweet it, in CAPS LOCK of course. ANTIFA. Just that. And the cult zombies went into instant screaming melt down. This word, to me at least, means anti-fascist, which I feel is rather a good thing. And just to bung some more whipped cream on top of this particular pav, TrumpetArse, from late December, kept tweeting to his undead army, SEE YOU IN WASHINGTON JAN 6!! BIG THINGS COMING ON JANUARY 6!!! and various other variations that subtly hinted there would be bigly doings in Washington on January 6. I myself was wondering what was special about this date and even tried looking it up to see if it was some landmark day in the US Presidential/Electoral festivities. Nope. But the whole world kept hearing about January 6. TrumpetArse definitely knew, he was in on the planning but I don’t believe he planned this himself because he isn’t that smart.
And here it is, just for Rudy, who’s obviously forgotten – poor old dear…https://www.politifact.com/article/2021/jan/11/timeline-what-trump-said-jan-6-capitol-riot/
No doubt most faithful NewsCorpsers have seen it, but Mark may want to make this, from the Trump Twitter Archive, an article.
Giuliani: The biggest problems were caused by Antifa. That’s where the shooting took place.
‘Problems’? Five people dead is ‘problems’? He’s supposed to be a frigging lawyer. A first year law student would make a dog’s breakfast out of old Rudy in 7.2 seconds. And Antifa is WHERE the shooting took place? Antifa isn’t a where, it’s not even a who. It’s an idea, a belief, of no fixed abode. On Twitter, when I’ve pointed this out to a few Trumpettes, they claim to have the email address, the phone number, the street address and the names of members on the Lamington Drive committee. So… could I have these details, please? Certainly I can. They’ll put them up immediately. Zero. Zilch. A bit like the hectic Christian lady who claimed Biden was Satan and she had video footage of Democrats murdering live babies and eating them, FFS. Please, feel free to post THAT vid, dearie. As soon as you like. Oh. Insert sounds of crickets chirping…. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Rudy makes the same claims since he’s obviously lost the plot. And the Trumpettes reckon that Biden’s got dementia? Do me a favour.
Rudy better recheck his facts. It was Darth Vader who did all the damage. He also used the same laser to wreak havoc as the one that started the California wildfires, according to Marjorie Taylor Greene. Geesh, these guys need to do a better job.
