There are poor souls who watch too much TV who claimed that participants in the Capitol riots were "patriots" or people who were motivated by something more than soul crushing boredom.
Just for the record . . .
SO-CALLED PATRIOTS QUICKLY TURN 'COMPLIANT' WHEN CONFRONTED WITH FED CHARGES!!! ONE LOCAL CAPITOL RIOT SUSPECT ATTEMPTS TO PIN THE BLAME TO PREZ TRUMP!!!
Lawyer-ing up is smart and the defense should play will in the national media at least.
Real talk, we kinda miss Prez Trump because the social media bully made a convenient villain easy to blame for every problem from global warming to stale cheese.
Deets . . .
The public defenders representing one of three local men arrested last week for participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol blamed former President Trump in a brief filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for Kansas. Essentially, the defense argues that Trump “actively misled” his supporters “told the assembled rabble what they must do” and then “ratified their actions” with praise on social media.
To be fair, a lot of folks arrested are taking a similar tactic so the dude isn't alone in his claims and offers an important perspective on the MAGA movement that will confront more serious challenges moving forward.
