Apparently Trump's fan base is "Deserting" him because he announced recently he's had the vaccine and booster jab, Since the vaccine in the US is as political as you can get, Maybe not a smart move if he wants to run in 2024.

Wondering if Sleepy is losing sleep over this little nugget today...

Not that Joe will remember much about it of course, but he's basically complicit in fraud.

Ghislaine Maxwell was complicit in something recently and went down for 60 years. Unlike Elisabeth Holmes, she was too old to give birth in the interim; a move that'll undoubtedly see Holmes get off doing the jail time that is fully deserved.

1 year ago today Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building to try and overturn the result of the 2020 election alleging it was "Stolen" from Trump even though no proof has ever been brought forward to support those claims.

Biden giving a speech today to mark this anniversery, Also giving Trump both barrels. Unfortunatly this will only divide the US even more, Even those in Congress on the Republican side are giving Biden what for, Its like they want to brush it under the carpet as bit of a jolly jape that may have gone a bit far.

Of course Kamala had to go and compare it to Pearl Harbour!

Well, one person who won't be getting the Republican nomination is Red Cruz. He's upset the team by describing you know what as a "violent terrorist attack".

On the table
She wasn't comparing them directly as like for like events.
She was identifying January 6 as a date of real consequence in American history as per the dates of those other events.
i.e. The attack on the Capitol was a milestone event and shouldn't be downplayed or normalised.

A mob attacking the seat of American democracy specifically to overthrow an election result after two months of overt goading by the incumbent President and his main players; at least 4 years of undermining faith in the electoral process to the extent that 40% of Americans believe a 'stolen election' lie that is still being promulgated by politicians who are now planning to regain power next year.

Yes.

I'd say that's a pretty significant date to remember for an American.
