Donald Trump’s town hall event on CNN sent leftists and Never-Trumpers over the edge.
No one suffers from a bigger case of Trump Derangement Syndrome than former RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney.
And Donald Trump made Liz Cheney melt down with what he told CNN about January 6.
One of the problems with allowing left-wing networks to have their moderators host GOP debates and town halls is that these left-wing activists only ask questions that the press cares about instead of questions about the issues that most concern Republican voters.
That’s exactly what happened at multiple points during the CNN town hall where Collins focused on the 2020 election or January 6 and tried to debate Donald Trump on behalf of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.
Trump debunked Collins’ talking points about how Trump simply allowed mayhem to take place on that day, stating that he offered to deploy 10,000 National Guard troops to the Capitol but was rebuffed by Nancy Pelosi and Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.
“I offered them National Guard. I said, ‘We’ll give you soldiers. We’ll give you a National Guard. We’ll give you whatever you want.’ And they turned me down. Yeah. And in fact . . . she turned me down in writing. They turned me down,” Trump stated.
Trump also noted that he made several posts on social media on the day before January 6 and on January 6 asking his supporters to be peaceful and to respect law enforcement.
“On January 5, the day before, I said please support our Capitol police and law enforcement. They are truly on the side of our country. Stay peaceful. Stay peaceful. This was the day before and this was in the form of Twitter — now use Truth. Truth Social– I think it’s far superior,” Trump added.
When Collins said the day was deadly, Trump fired back that the one person killed that day was an unarmed 34-year-old female Trump supporter and Air Force veteran, Ashli Babbit.
“A person named Ashli Babbitt was killed. She shouldn’t have been killed, and that thug who killed her – there was no reason to shoot her,” Trump continued. “She was a good person. She was a patriot.”
Trump’s answers triggered Liz Cheney who took to social media to repeat the talking points from the January 6 Committee that failed to persuade Republican voters Donald Trump incited an insurrection.
“Donald Trump gave no order to deploy the National Guard to protect the Capitol prior to or on Jan 6. Listen to the testimony of his own secretary of defense. No matter how many times Trump lies about this the facts won’t change. He is unfit for any office,” Cheney posted on social media.
