Donald Trump has said time and time again that he didn’t his supporters storming the US Capitol on January 6th was all that big a deal. In fact, he’s been quoted as saying, they were there to hug the police officers (140 officers were injured in the melee and 4 have died since that day.
Over the last few weeks, Donald Trump has become increasingly obsessed with Ashli Babbitt. Babbitt, who took part in the Capitol insurrection, was shot as she attempted to breach a barricade.
Republican lawmakers and media are now attempting to make Babbitt out to be a martyr. And according a new report, Trump had plans to do so days after the insurrection.
During the January 6th insurrection, a QAnon supporter named Ashli Babbitt attempted to break through a barricade inside the United States Capitol. The officer who shot her was cleared of any wrong doing.
The events of January 6th were broadcast live on all cable news channels. Supporters of Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol and had no problem attacking any police officer that stood in their way.
One of the most troubling aspects of yesterday’s assault on the Capitol was how under-prepared and undermanned the police force was. There will certainly be investigations into the seemingly preventable situation.
