On Tuesday, Donald Trump released a statement about his planned Jan. 6 news conference, saying that “in light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday.” More likely, he cancelled because news stations were vowing not to cover the event.
One speech that will not be cancelled, however, is a speech by the actual winner of the last presidential election: President Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that President Biden intends to place responsibility for the attack on January 6, 2021 at the doorstep of the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice, no matter how many times he insists that he didn’t.
‘I expect that President Biden will lay out the significance of what happened at the Capitol and the singular responsibility President Trump has for the chaos and carnage that we saw and he will forcibly push back on the lies spread by the former president in an attempt to mislead the American people and his own supporters as well as distract from his role in what happened.’
Following a press conference on Wednesday during which Attorney General Merrick Garland vowed to hold all of the perpetrators of the Jan. 6 attempted insurrection accountable, Biden’s rightfully placing the blame on the former president should assuage fears that those who were in power during the insurrection will be allowed to skirt responsibility for their actions and try again in future elections.
