“He tried to murder the whole line of succession.”Arnold Ziffer Jr., an American, tweeted Tuesday morning. Over the weekend, a pundit called no vaccine shots the “Death Lottery.” It seems, that “Death Lottery” would also apply to most Republicans turning their back upon the failed coup on January 6. Other pundits questioned the use of the term “insurrection,” because it was “too intellectual.” For some reason, the Democrats have been using the softer term, when in reality, Donald Trump “tried to murder the whole line of succession.” Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) has the right idea.
As one of only two Republicans to stand up for what their party used to be, Cheney tweeted Tuesday morning. She referred people to the remarkable documentary put together by The New York Times people. This may well become one of the finest pieces in journalistic history. It took the newspaper’s team six months to collate all the thousands of videos, match like videos together, and create an accurate timeline. The videos came from the police, the building, and hundreds of attackers. Hopefully, plenty of Republican voters will watch it.
Cheney pointed out that our very Constitution was attacked. The symbol of our great Democracy, the domed Capitol building, was stormed, too. But also, a weaponized mob of Trump supporters and white nationalist groups were intent upon murdering his Vice President Mike Pence and possible House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). That was the line of ascension to the presidency.
