I could just feel the love in the air when cops were dragged down staircases and beaten to a pulp with metal flagpoles. And the bear spray/ flying fire extinguishers/ battering rams, stolen shields and bricks busting out windows/ gallos and nooses/ stun gun walking sticks/ baseball bats/ crowbars/ poop in the hallway? Donnie is right - SOOO much love!
Former President Donald Trump on Sunday widely praised those who attended the Jan. 6 rally that preceded the insurrection at the Capitol, repeatedly using the word “love” to describe the tone of the event.
Echoing his rhetoric about the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Trump said, “These were peaceful people, these were great people.”
In his interview with Bartiromo, Trump said those at the events of Jan. 6 were loving people who wanted to save the nation.
“The crowd was unbelievable and I mentioned the word ‘love,’ the love in the air, I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said of his rally on the Ellipse. “That’s why they went to Washington.”
He added: “Too much spirit and faith and love, there was such love at that rally, you had over a million people,” inflating the size of his rally crowd.
