Poor Donald Trump. It must be terribly difficult for him to watch the House Select Committee conduct a thorough investigation of his treasonous crimes without anyone there to stand up for him or tell his side of story. And it can’t help knowing that millions of Americans are tuning in and being swayed. Unless, of course, they’re watching Fox News where it is either being ignored or followed up with sycophantic slobbering.
So what is a seditious, coup-plotting, aspiring authoritarian, and pathological liar to do when forced to sit through hour after hour of incriminating evidence? Well, naturally he rants incoherently on his own miserably failing social media website about how he is such a victim of Democratic meanies.
The whiny complaints that Trump is posting on his hysterically misnamed “TRUTH” Social are typical of a severely damaged malignant narcissist whose tender ego has been wounded. They are drenched in self pity and festering falsehoods. Beginning with…
“The Unselect Committee has been unable the answer, or in any way refute, the detailed statement, put out yesterday, of voter fraud and irregularities in numerous states that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election. They don’t answer because they have no answer. […] The Committee is a SCAM!”
Actually, the Committee has effectively refuted Trump’s tedious tantrums about the allegedly “rigged” 2020 presidential election. And unlike Trump, they have done so with documentary evidence and corroborating testimony. What’s more, many Trump administration officials have debunked his utterly unsupported allegations of election fraud.
What Trump is referring to in the comment above is his deranged twelve page hissy fit that produced nothing that he hasn’t already been manically excreting for the past year and a half. Much of that trumped up treatise rested on the crocumentary “2,000 Mules” by Dinesh D’Souza, the convicted election fraudster who Trump pardoned. But Trump was just getting started. He continued raging that…
“The Fake News Media won’t challenge the so-called “Big Lie” because they have NO AMMUNITION to do so. They and their Radical Left Democrat Partner, the same people that perpetuated the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, are using their standard DISINFORMATION Con to bring our Country down!”
Actually, the media has repeatedly and exhaustively challenged Trump’s “Big Lie.” And it hasn’t been especially difficult considering that he doesn’t have a shred of evidence, which explains why he has lost more than sixty court cases wherein he attempted to challenge the election results. Trump’s argument has devolved into the same repetitive babbling about a “HOAX” that he makes against his well documented collusion with Russia:
But Trump still had more to disgorge, whereupon he unleashed this seething squeal…
“Why don’t the Unselects put up the many witnesses who are for our Country and fully agree that the Election was Rigged and Stolen, instead of the weak and frightened Losers that very FEW people have been watching so far??? WITCH HUNT!!!”
This is perhaps the most ludicrous of Trump’s outbursts. First of all, Trump knows very well that millions of people have been watching these hearings. More than 20 million tuned in to Thursday’s primetime session, and more than 10 million during Monday’s morning session. These are numbers that exceed all regular programming and most major sporting events, awards shows, and other popular specials.
Secondly, the “weak and frightened Losers” who testified, and to whom Trump is referring, are all veterans of his administration. Every witness so far has been a Trump associate or staffer. And Trump’s complaint that the Committee hasn’t put up witnesses who “agree that the Election was Rigged and Stolen,” isn’t the Committee’s fault. Nevertheless, Trump lashed out in his twelve page harangue several times saying…
- “If they had any real evidence, they’d hold real hearings with equal representation.”
- “They have refused to allow their political opponents to participate in this process, and have excluded all exculpatory witnesses.”
- “The American public has a right to know the truth and see every witness.”
- “What are the members of this treasonous ‘Committee’ afraid of? Why can’t they let the countervailing opinion be heard?”
In fact, the witnesses that Trump is begging to hear, and who would be expected to support him, have stubbornly and illegally refused to testify. Some of them refused at Trump’s direction. Among those who defied the Committee’s subpoenas to appear were his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, his social media director, Dan Scavino, his former campaign chairman, Steve Bannon, and his former trade representative, Peter Navarro. The latter two have been indicted for contempt of Congress.
If Trump really wants the Committee to hear his side of the story, he could simply tell his associates to accept the Committee’s invitation to testify. Or better yet, he could volunteer to testify himself. Then his story could be told in his own words. There are just two little problems. First, he is too big a coward, and he would rather whine than face the Committee and defend himself. And second, he knows he’s guilty.
UPDATE: Trump added another bombastic outburst…
“The Fake News Networks are perpetuating lies, falsehoods, and Russia, Russia, Russia type disinformation (same sick people, here we go again!) by allowing the low rated but nevertheless one sided and slanderous Unselect Committee hearings to go endlessly and aimlessly on (and on and on!). It is a one sided, highly partisan Witch Hunt, the likes of which has never been seen in Congress before. Therefore, I am hereby demanding EQUAL TIME to spell out the massive Voter Fraud & Dem Security Breach!”
“Demanding”? He’s so funny. And once again, all it would take – as Committee member Eric Swalwell says – is “sitting your lying ass in a witness chair.” The Committee will gladly make time for him. He won’t do it. He’s too busy whining, and too scared to show up.
Equal time means sitting your lying ass in a witness chair.
