Most of us got out of our “not fair!” stage by the second grade, but the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and tried to overthrow the government clings to an endless victim narrative in which life is cruel to him and too kind to everyone else. When staffers from “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” weren’t immediately thrown in jail after having been arrested for overstaying their welcome at the U.S. Capitol Building, Trump compared them to the January 6, 2021 attackers on his social media website.
Federal prosecutors said they would not proceed with unlawful entry charges against staff members of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” who were arrested last month at the U.S. Capitol complex. They had been there filming a segment for the show. https://t.co/JTmWHHmHVs

Trump was unhappy with the decision to throw out the case, saying that it was unfair to free the comedians and the dog puppet when his supporters, the armed insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol armed with flagpoles, bear spray, zip ties, and an actual gallows pole, were not collectively set free in the same manner. The comparison is absurd, but Trump used the news to discredit the committee investigating his coup and yelled “not fair!”
‘Wow! Prosecutors have just dropped all charges against ratings challenged Colbert Show staffers, who entered the Capitol illegally, disregarded police warnings, wouldn’t leave the premises, and were very loud and disruptive late into the evening, with no security present as is mandated by law. These Radical Left lunatics, from a failing show, were treated so differently than the Unselects are treating so man of our great American Patriots. NOT FAIR!’
According to The New York Times, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia issued a statement on Monday saying that “the case wasn’t strong enough” to proceed.
‘The crew members had been invited to enter the building on two separate occasions by congressional staff who never asked them to leave, although the Capitol Police did tell some members of the group that they were supposed to have an escort, the statement said.’
Twitter had absolutely no sympathy for the embattled and offended Trump. Read some of their comments below:
