On Friday, a Police Officer was killed after a man drove his car into the barricades at the US Capitol. This is the 4th Capitol officer to die since Donald Trump’s mob stormed the building back on January 6th.
Trump was up to talk about a number of things last night. He released a statement slamming Major League Baseball for their decision to move the game out of Atlanta. He also released another statement wishing people a Happy Easter and whining about the results of the election. The former President, however, said nothing about the death of the officer.
Baseball made it’s decision to move the marquee event in response to Georgia restrictive voting laws. Trump said in a statement released by Save America PAC, “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections. Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
In a second statement, Trump again whined about the results of the 2020 election. He asked, “Why is it that every time the 2020 ELECTION FRAUD is discussed, the Fake News Media consistently states that such charges are baseless, unfounded, unwarranted, etc.? Sadly, there was massive fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election, and many very angry people understand that.”
News accounts all day focused on the attack at the Capitol that left a police officer dead. Many of those news accounts mentioned the Jan 6 riot of Trump supporters after he spent months claiming the election was stolen. Here is his takeaway 👇🏻 https://t.co/2bSJInOyVx

Thump closed his unhinged rant, “Other than that, Happy Easter!”
