Triggered Trump Blows Up Over Jan. 6 Committee’s Bannon Contempt Vote


Whining is such an unattractive trait in a 75-year-old man. Donald Trump complains so loudly and so often, one would think that he is besieged by weeping sores, grinding poverty, and tragic relationships. But no, he just lost his election and has been throwing a rolling tantrum ever since. Instead of accepting his loss gracefully as every other president was man enough to do, the ex-president just seeks out more kindling to stoke that frenzy fire into an uncontrolled fury.

The former president decided to crank up the decibel level of his flareup just shortly before the House January 6 Select Committee planned to take an important vote. So what was his problem this time? He did not want the Committee to bring contempt charges against one of his former advisers, Steve Bannon. The Committee has been investigating the January 6 attempted coup and went after those closest to Trump first.

At 7:30 p.m., the Committee will seek a vote recommending charges against Bannon. Why? The former adviser is currently ignoring the subpoena it sent to him, perhaps, thinking that these were still the bad old Trump years, according to CNBC. Although he is very bright, a man who wears two and three shirts at once and befriends Trump, Bannon might be questionable at best.

The retired president released another one of his enraged statements via his spokesperson Liz Harrington. Since Twitter cut him off, Trump has had to rely on others to send out his written word, according to The Guardian. This time, he decided to write in scream print (capital letters):

‘The fake, highly partisan Unselect Committee continues to rock and roll. They were unable to make a deal with Kevin McCarthy to put real Republicans on the Committee, so they got stuck with low-polling warmonger Liz Cheney and Cryin’ Adam Kinzinger who have no idea what our Party stands for.’

He went on to attack the Committee’s Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY):

‘Cheney is polling in the low 20’s in Wyoming, the State she doesn’t represent. This is just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which started with the now fully debunked and discredited Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, quickly reverting to a perfect phone call with Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and now this. The Unselect Committee is composed of absolute political hacks who want to destroy the Republican Party and are decimating America itself.’

Trump’s demands were ignored. The Committee continued to be determined to follow the law and precedent. The vote moves forward. Harrington tweeted:

Trump’s message ended with:

‘I am the only thing in their way. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’

Time is of the essence, because the House could lose its majority in the 2022 midterm elections, and that would disassemble this powerful, vitally important investigation.
