The January 6th Hearings are Driving Public Opinion – And Trump’s Latest Delusional Meltdown

The January 6th insurrection incited by Donald Trump was an unprecedented assault on American democracy. And now that the House Select Committee investigating the deadly Capitol Hill riots has held the first two sessions of its hearings, there is concrete evidence that the public is paying attention and is appropriately disgusted by Trump’s criminal and treasonous malfeasance.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll has found that the American people’s opinion of the attack on Congress by the StormTrumpers is already taking a decidedly anti-Trump turn. The Committee is doing an effective job of presenting the abundant evidence of Trump’s purposeful lying about election fraud, and his fleecing of his gullible cult followers with solicitations for his so-called “Election Defense Fund” that doesn’t actually exist.

As a result of the revelations produced in just the first two sessions, Trump and the Republican Party are taking a severe hit to the gut. Mediaite reports that…

“In a poll taken after last week’s Jan. 6 hearing, a whopping 69 percent of Americans [say] it is a ‘crime’ to try and overturn election results, and similar numbers say the Justice Department should prosecute.”

When asked if “misleading Americans about the outcome of an election” is a crime, a massive majority of 69% said definitely/probably “Yes,” including 59% of Republicans. The same question on “officials attempting to overturn the results of an American election,” returned the same 69% affirmative, including 54% of Republicans.

The numbers were almost identical when respondents were asked whether “the Department of Justice should bring legal action against” the elected officials engaging in the crimes identified above.

For his part, Trump is clearly having a bad day. He has posted on his failing TRUTH Social Twitter clone website some truly bizarre rants. Such as

“Word out that the reason the Unselects have canceled Wednesday’s Kangaroo Court is a total lack of interest leading to very poor television ratings. Could this be so? Maybe they should try getting a more talented Hollywood producer than the former President of ABC Fake News. He didn’t do so well!”

What Trump is referring to is that the Committee’s session for Wednesday has been postponed – not canceled. And the reason has nothing to do with a “lack of interest.” In fact, the first hearing that was held in primetime on Thursday drew more than 20 million viewers, which is twice what game three of the NBA Finals did. And MSNBC even beat Fox News, who refused to cover that hearing live.

MSNBC also shined during Monday’s hearings, beating Fox News and CNN combined. And while the Monday session was not in primetime, it still garnered about 10 million total viewers across several networks. Nevertheless, Trump threw an infantile tantrum whining that…

“The T.V. Ratings for the January 6th Unselect Committee were absolutely awful. Perhaps the reason is that it is being ‘sponsored’ by Adam ‘Shifty’ Schitt and the same people that brought you the Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, and that the Unselects are not interested in hearing from anyone saying the Election was Rigged and Stolen, despite the EVIDENCE being irrefutable!”

Really? Adam “Schitt”? Has Trump ever advanced past the emotional maturity of a six year old, or is he regressing? And are his Deplorables really dense enough to believe his easily debunked lie about the “absolutely awful” ratings? Apparently so, After all, they believe his pitiful wailing about the “Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX,” that is well documented. And that’s even after Tucker Carlson inadvertently conceded that it was never a hoax to begin with.

Sadly, for some time to come, the nation is going to have to deal with the deeply psychotic distortions of reality that Trump and his disciples are infected with. Hopefully they will either find a a way back to some sense of sanity, or crawl back under their rocks and stop spreading their diseased, dystopian fantasies.

    ~ & ~ “…officials attempting to overturn the results of an American election,” returned the same 69% affirmative…”

    Well, guess that’s good… 69% agree it’s a crime . Right?
    “WRONG!” Correct me if my math is wrong but, doesn’t that mean that approx 31% of those polled DO NOT think it’s a crime??! Just shy of 1/3 think it’s alright to try to overturn election results? Where’d they find this 31% & who are they??! I’d love to have them explain yo me why they think it is NOT a crime!
    Only 2/3 of Americans think trying to overturn election results is a crime. I’m appalled! Really would’ve expected at least 8 in 10 [80%] to know that’d be a crime! A coup d’etat in other countries will likely get those who tried it, locked up forever, or killed. No messing around with that shit!
    You don’t let them walk free, stay in cushy gov’t jobs, getting full pay & benefits…as if they did nothing wrong! That’s batshit crazy! It sends message to “go ahead; it’s ok”. At VERY least, should be immediately fired… “GET OUT!”
    Unprecedented actions require unprecedented responses.
    They’ve made known their hatred for this gov’t ~ why let them stay in it? They haven’t changed their mind.
    Any real sign of remorse? (No.)
    Think they will do better? (No.)
    Can you trust them at all anymore? (Hell no!)
    While you’re doing whatever you’re doing, those same ppl are running around free & easy, to regroup & try another way to get what they want ~ The Power! And of course, that’s what they will do! Why not? Fear of being caught & harshly punished? Not in USA it seems!
    Need to punish those who tried & make it clear to anyone else who considers doing it, that there’s a heavy price to be paid for attempting that crap!
    To do anything less is to allow it to happen again, a different way; more firepower next time.

    Only 69% of us think it’s a crime to try & overturn election results?!! The fumbing down of America is working well. Thanks FauxNotNews & friends!

    • yeah Who are the 31% who do believe the election was stolen by Polititico’s poll? I firmly believe it’s not the Republican Senators. They operate by the votes they feel they will receive. I had to laugh at Trump’s two statements on Truth Social. He becomes more and more infantile at the level of “a 6yr old”. Down right stupid for an elderly man. So, who believes Trump? Yes, his Deplorables. In my mind, that means all the violent insurrectionists. Can they disturb the next election? Most of them are either in jail or going to jail.

      • I still can’t get over the fact that only 69% of Anericans polled, said that trying to overturn election results was wrong!
        …So, almost 1/3 of Americans think it is NOT wrong to try & overturn a U.S. election?!
        I guess it depends on if it’s their losing candidate trying to overturn the results!
        Wonder what it would be like IF a loser Dem candidate did all that crap Trump did & topped it off with a violent atrack & attempted coup/overturning of election by an angry mob, invited, transported & inspired to violent attack by a Dem who lost election??!!? Would never happen, but curious how it would’ve been handled — by press, others in Party & how Rethugs woukd have dealt with that??

        • Yes, the insurrectionists woud not fill the 1/3 of Americans who think it’s not wrong to overturn a U.S. election. So where are those brainwashed people?

  2. And Steve Bannon is issuing threats to everybody and anybody who is holding them accountable. According to this anti-democratic, anti-American pos anyone trying to hold them accountable for their treachery will pay with jail if and or when they take control! These are totally unhinged people that society needs to be protected from!

  3. “Has Trump ever advanced past the emotional maturity of a six year old, or is he regressing?”

    I can’t agree with this notion. He has never advanced past the emotional maturity of a three year old.

    • Do I hear 2? “2!”
      Going once…going twice…. “Sold!”
      Maturity of a 22-26 mo. old child, it is.
      With all the whining, screaming, tantrums & stomping feet that 1 expects from a very young child who has no words for what they feel when don’t get.what they want!
      A person does not expect that behavior from one’s president!!

      • Yes, Sunny B., but I have one thing to add. My 2year 6month old grandchild has better behavior than Trump. She talks better also.
