Today, the disgraced, twice impeached, former president who never won the popular vote, Donald Trump, is living a different life than he surely thought he would right now. He expected to be elected for a second term. He expected to end up on Mt. Rushmore. He expected to still have the power to avoid criminal cases and lawsuits. None of that came to pass.

Instead, Trump is holed up at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach County licking his wounds and meeting with attorneys to drum up some kind of defense for inciting an insurrection on the Capitol Building that ended with five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer who was beaten to death with flag poles. While there, no one has failed to remind him of exactly where he stands with the majority of the American people. On Saturday, a plane flew over the golf resort taunting Trump because he doesn’t have the courage to testify in that Senate trial on his own behalf.
Although his incendiary tweets during the attack, including an attack on Vice President Mike Pence, who was taken to a safe location while rioters erected a gallows pole and chanted “hang Mike Pence,” Trump will not answer for his crimes. Those tweets indicated that Trump knew exactly what would happen if he continued to push his election lies since he tweeted that “these are the things and events that happen” when an election is stolen.
Instead of defending himself as a witness, he’s relying on lawyers to make his case. Unlike Secretary Hillary Clinton, he is not brave enough to answer questions under oath.
Twitter felt that the banner spoke for them, too. Read some of their comments below:
