Since Nigel Farage's opinion is sought on everything, perhaps now is the time to ask him to make a comment on the behaviour of his best mate.

Quite rightly *that* Fraser Nelson "we are about to see a new reasonable Trump" tweet is getting some airtime yet again.

Trump is out on his ear in two weeks. It's not too late preventing him from doing harm before that time.

There's talk of impeaching him again - whch does potentially have value, because the Senate, as well as removing him from office, can ban him from holding office again. It would potentially be an easy way out of a 2024 nightmare for senate republicans. We shall see.

It almost sounds like Fox News is in mourning. Like this massive act of shitting the bed by people they've defended and incited is going to have repercussions not just for the perpetrators but also their enablers. Like the party is over and they're not going to be able to carry on as they have been for the last 20 years.

Let's see how long it lasts, I'd give it a couple of hours.

Switched to Fox News to see what the conversation for that half of America and the first thing I heard was “Unlike the BLM protests there’s no vandalism other than the breaking into the Capitol” and I confess to screaming out loud.

Washington DC is now under curfew yet the police are letting this mob of insurrectionists and domestic terrorists mill about entirely unmolested.

Why? What exactly do Trump's supporters have to do before they get the shit kicked out of them and arrested?

They had an ex FBI bloke on MSNBC earlier saying he'd arrested people in the past for doing less than what Trump did today in inciting terrorism. He was also discussing how the FBI had been treating right wing domestic terror groups with kids gloves for years and when asked if he thought that was about to change he shook his head, laughed ruefully, and said at best there'd be a few token arrests to make it look like something was being done.

I know I am semantically challenged, but by extrapolation is he not implying, inadvertently or otherwise, that the Leave vote was a coup and an attack on democracy?

Sarah Palin on Fox blaming the media and Antifa.

She genuinely suggested Antifa agitators were responsible based on pictures from Twitter.

Kelly Loeffler's last act as a senator was to drop her objection to the election result.

If even she will no longer touch Trump with a shitty stick there's a chance he won't last for the next couple of weeks.

Here's the guy Trumpists are claiming is an Antifa plant. He's quite distinctive.
