Glad to hear that someone got to Trump to shut him up!

the only crimes are Republican ones. Why these error-ists are allowed to stay in government when all they want to do is destroy it keeps the USA in the basketcase level democracy

Trump and his ilk should be tossed in jail for trying to overthrow the government.

Trump has post-election PTSD

Hardly, to have PTSD he had to go through some trauma first, and in his case, he has been mentally ill for decades with delusions of grandeur.

Congress will later hold a prayer vigil.

That should fix everything.

"It was average, everyday Americans who had bought into this whole notion."

If those I saw on TV attacking Congress were "average, everyday Americans" then I think I'll stay away from the place.

And fighting what Trump, the master brander, popularizes as "the Steal," has become a political ideology in its own right, with nearly all Republican lawmakers either squirming to avoid criticizing what happened on Jan 6 -- or actively defending the attack.

Trump does have a reverse Midas touch for branding, degrading everything he touches. From casinos to steak to universities to airlines to websites to the election process. It has really been something to see.

Nation is not divided,lots of American are gonna reap what they sowed, and all legal mean should be used to bring those back into reality ,if it mean round those up who tried to subvert the will of the government on Jan 6

Would this malignant narcissist please go crawl under a rock.

Trump is just waiting to counterpunch.

Donald ****who?

Donald Trump on Tuesday abruptly gave up his plan to steal the limelight on the anniversary of the Jan 6 assault against Congress, leaving President Joe Biden to address a divided nation.

Too scared to incriminate himself even further!

But I would have loved him to speak, the Democrat conspiracy to make the GOP looks stupid by letting them be themselves has succeeded beyond dreams.

To support Trump and his deranged conspiracy theories and lies you need to be prepared to humiliate yourself. Watching his aides, allies and supporters make excuses for the trash he spouts is cringeworthy.

I remember one commentator answering that part of the reason Trump was unable to recruit the best people while in office was that they knew Trump would inevitably put them in a position that could trash their reputations and credibility.

It’s worth remembering that Trump claimed serious election fraud on at least three occasions - when Ted Cruz beat him in Iowa, the 2016 presidential election and the 2020 presidential election.

Do Trump supporters have to accept all three baseless claims or is it more of an a la carte approach?

How? Lol!

Again, I’m glad he realized not to take his eye off the prize of November and re-taking the House. Let the Dems run wild with this last stand, it’s the only thing going for them for the next foreseeable future.

trump has bigger worries now, failing businesses , fraud investigations, lenders calling in their loans, putin ignoring him and the the biggest of them all, Ivanka not wanting to have anything to do with him.

Not a surprise the GOP is paying to keep him out of bankruptcy, but that will not last long!

11 ( +15 / -4 )

How? Lol!

By speaking, ROFL!

Again, I’m glad he realized not to take his eye off the prize of November and re-taking the House. 

The bigger worry is having his house taken by lenders, bankruptcy is coming soon!!!

Smart decision to cancel the Trump press conference.

wait until after Biden and Harris try to speak, then Trump has much more material to work with.

Dont give the media any reason to distract from what they say, just sit back and watch the circus.

I think you are watching waaaaay to much CNN. Lol

With the amount of money the people are throwing at the RNC and the amount of land and property Trump owns, he’ll be just fine, keep it up.

Smart decision to cancel the Trump press conference.

Yes almost as smart as his decision to lose the elections, ROFL!

Dont give the media any reason to distract from what they say, just sit back and watch the circus.

The show is on, plenty of trump's boys shouting their mouths off.

Navarro was on MSNBC yesterday describing the coup attempt in details, ROFL!!

yeah somebody needs to turn off CNN.

-9 ( +5 / -14 )

I think you are watching waaaaay to much CNN. Lol

So reality is CNN, ROFL!

With the amount of money the people are throwing at the RNC and the amount of land and property Trump owns, he’ll be just fine, keep it up.

When the convictions come the RNC money will stop, no one wants to fund a felon!

whatever trump owns is heavily leveraged, all going soon, keep up.

trump is so rich he cannot afford to pay his legal bills, ROFL!!

Lies? Hmmm…a bit disagreement on that one.

Watching his aides, allies and supporters make excuses for the trash he spouts is cringeworthy. 

Others feel the opposite of this administration.

I remember one commentator answering that part of the reason Trump was unable to recruit the best people while in office was that they knew Trump would inevitably put them in a position that could trash their reputations and credibility. 

Speaking of people bailing, what’s going on with our VP?

Do Trump supporters have to accept all three baseless claims or is it more of an a la carte approach?

No, I think the Dems and you may not know this about the US, but these people are focused on that day and the GOP are focusing on Retaking the House, so I see a short term strategy for the Dems as opposed to a very long strategy for the GOP coming this November, so carry on liberals.

When the convictions come the RNC money will stop, no one wants to fund a felon!

Well, that’s not going to happen. He’s not going to be convicted.

whatever trump owns is heavily leveraged, all going soon, keep up.

Sure….lol

Brown said, however, that Biden has little room for maneuver, because a direct attack on Trump risks looking like a "political witch hunt" -- exactly what the former president claims in his conspiracy theories.

This part is very true and Biden won’t be able to avoid this unless he robotically reads from the teleprompter.

No way he and especially Harris will be able to pull this off successfully. Probably better if they don’t speak at all either.

The Theranos ruling is a warning to trump.

If you start a company, fool gullible investors then you will face consequences!!

You really don’t know who publicly supported this company to legitimize it in the beginning, do you?

Biden visited Elizabeth Holmes' Theranos HQ in 2015 while he was VP and gushed that fraudster's 'achievements' were 'amazing and inspiring

-9 ( +5 / -14 )

That's correct the United states is not united its divided.

Biden speaks the truth

Well, that’s not going to happen. He’s not going to be convicted.

It is going to happen, better switch off fox, ROFL!

Sure….lol

Yes LOL!!!

After 2020, RNC has only $80 million in its election coffers, can't mount an election campaign from that

Hardly..

Trump campaign, RNC breaks fundraising record with massive $125M third quarter haul

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-campaign-rnc-breaks-record-with-massive-125m-fundraising-quarter-haul

Trump and The GOP are just fine. 2022 started and there’s more money coming their way.

-11 ( +6 / -17 )

RNC has only $80 million in its election coffers can't mount an election campaign from that.

The DNC has less than that. So neither side can have a campaign this year? I’m fine with that, if so.

I know trump media is backed by trump, has no product and is under investigation, ROFL!!!

Yeah, we’ve been hearing that since 2016. A faux FBI 3 year investigation and two laughable impeachment attempt. 20 FBI agents 500 witnesses, 500 subpoenas 19 of the best Democratic lawyers in the nation and a partridge in a pear tree and they still couldn’t get this guy, but ok this time it’s going to happen? ROFL…sure…

The DNC is not funding the defense for a criminal fraud investigation of a private's citizen !!!

I suggest making some contribution , no one wants to see trump homeless before he goes to prison!!!

Yes and he lost the 2020 elections.

 A faux FBI 3 year investigation and two laughable impeachment attempt. 

You forgot to add 'Succesfull'

Funny part is they hundreds of lawsuits trump and his boys filed against the elections, all thrown out of court.

Then he tried to organize a coup, which also failed and now is running scared of the investigation !!!

Do Trump supporters have to accept all three baseless claims or is it more of an a la carte approach?

No

It isn’t a yes or no question. Do you believe all three? How many if any do you accept?

Fair questions. Trump seems to think the US is basically a banana republic when it comes to election integrity and you regard Trump as a man of integrity. Do you agree with him? This is bigger than Trump or any political affiliation. This is one of the basic foundations of a functioning democracy.

You keep talking about November. Do you think this year’s elections will be legitimate?

The reason trump canceled the conference is because reporters would have asked him questions and challenged his lies.

There are a lot of scared people around him, A Lot. The more there are the likelier it is that people start turning!!!

9 ( +13 / -4 )

It was guaranteed trump would incriminate himself if he spoke. He and the people around him are in deep trouble . Their situation is detonating as their legal exposure increases!!!

Joe had to interrupt him twice at the debates with 'Will you shut up, man?!!'.

Trump has post-election PTSD.

No, he's just a crybaby and a sore loser. He is totally detached from reality and not an ounce of maturity in him.

The reason trump canceled the conference is because reporters would have asked him questions and challenged his lies.

He's always lipped off to the media. He doesn't know to address them when they question him. He doesn't know how to talk to people or with them. He just brag brag brag. And he ain't man enough to face the fact that nobody really likes him.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

One of the reasons trump canceled the conference was because none of the news networks was ready to cover him. He needs to get used to it, the people who fund him will dump him soon and getting ignored is something he needs tp get used to!!!
