Donald Trump Railroads Kaitlan Collins With Lies in CNN’s Shitshow Town Hall
CNN’s decision to hold a prime-time town hall with Donald Trump already seemed like a terrible idea going into Wednesday night, and now it looks like, well, whatever the German is for “letting a sociopath who inspires our – out to take shit together on live TV – and get praised for it.”
Not surprisingly, things started with Trump lying about the 2020 election, which he said – and would continue to claim throughout the evening – was “spoiled.”
Asked by the moderator Caitlin Collins if he had any regrets about the events of January 6, 2021 – that is when he instigated an uprising that left several people dead – Trump declared that it was “a beautiful day, ” referred to the Black police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt as a “thug,” he falsely claimed Mike Pence that it would have overturned the election results (and that the VP’s life was never in danger), and tried to put everything on Nancy Pelosi.
Then, he said he would forgive “many” of the people involved in the violent riot.
