“Remember this day forever!” The President of the United States of Amnesia.
Almost four years earlier, in 2017, Trump was asked to condemn the killing of one person, and injuries sustained to others in Charlottesville. He did not particularly speak words of condemnation, instead choosing to say, “You also had some very fine people on both sides.”
With the numerous times that Trump has supported, encouraged and incited the worst members of his base, what happened on Capitol Hill should not come as a surprise. Sadly, the lasting stain from the Trump presidency may be the ushering in of new era of domestic terrorism in the name of the real President of Amnesia. We have just got to hold our collective breath and hope that the next two weeks pass peacefully. And quickly. This is not the end.
