One RINO picked a fight with Donald Trump that immediately blew up in his face
Establishment Republicans are still trying to seize control of the GOP away from Donald Trump and his supporters.
But these swamp Republicans continue to fail.
And one RINO picked a fight with Donald Trump that immediately blew up in his face.
Establishment Republicans pitched a fit after Trump spoke at a rally in Texas, where he floated the idea of pardoning some of the January 6 defendants who committed nonviolent crimes but are being held in inhumane conditions in the Washington, D.C. jail.
“If I run and if I win, we will treat those people from January 6 fairly,” Trump declared. “We will treat them fairly. And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons because they are being treated so unfairly.”
On the following day, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham called Trump’s suggestion “inappropriate.”
“I don’t want to reinforce that defiling the Capitol was okay,” Graham told CBS, adding that he hopes the January 6 defendants “go to jail and get the book thrown at them, because they deserve it.”
Trump responded on Newsmax by saying not only was Graham wrong, but that Graham – who supports amnesty and gun control – is a RINO.
“Well, Lindsey Graham’s wrong. I mean, Lindsey’s a nice guy, but he’s a RINO,” Trump declared, before adding that “Lindsey’s wrong.”
Trump claimed that the protestors on January 6 – some of whom were cops, firefighters, and veterans – were treated unfairly, as judges and prosecutors threw the book at them while letting Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters off with a get out of jail free card.
“Many of these people are not guilty,” Trump added. “What they’ve done to these – and in many cases, patriots, they’re soldiers, they’re policemen – what they’ve done to them compared to what they’ve done to the other side? You know, you have to have equal justice. And this isn’t equal. So I would absolutely be prepared, and Lindsey Graham doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about if he says that, because you have to have equal justice. It’s very, very unfair what’s happened to this group of people.”
Many Trump supporters are upset about the unequal application of justice in America.
There was no publicized FBI manhunt for the Black Lives Matter terrorists who inflicted $2 billion worth of property damage and killed dozens in the summer of 2020.
There is no Select Committee investigating how the media and the Democrat Party cheered on that insurrection.
Anyone guilty of political violence for any reason should be punished.
But Trump supporters see the Justice Department and FBI coming down like a ton of bricks on only one side.
