Michele Bachmann Says Liberals Framed Donald Trump for Capitol Insurrection

Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) ignited her gaslight on Sunday’s edition of Jan Markell’s Understanding the Times radio program when she insisted that the January 6th insurrection at the United States Capitol was organized and executed by liberals who wanted to frame ex-President Donald Trump for the attack.

This is in spite of the overwhelming amount of video evidence, eyewitness testimony, hundreds of criminal charges, and Trump himself instructing his followers to march toward the Capitol to disrupt the certification of the 2020 election, which he and loyalists such as Bachmann continue to baselessly assert was stolen.

Bachmann said:

January 6th. We’re all told that that’s the worst day that ever happened, these were the worst riots in America. It absolutely wasn’t. It is my opinion that this was a theatrical event that the progressive left put on. The individuals who were the instigators, who brought this about, these were agitators brought in to create this problem. I believe it was specifically done to rebrand Donald Trump as being an insurrectionist and a leader of a terrorist movement. I also believe that this was done to rebrand the Make America Great agenda – because remember, that was considered extremely popular by about 80 million Americans – so they wanted to rebrand Make America Great as an evil thing and those of us who supported Donald Trump and that agenda as evil and terrorists.

Bachmann added that Trump’s presidency and the Make America Great Again movement have been tossed down a “memory hole” like in George Orwell’s novel, 1984, by people desperate to forget the last five years:

That’s all a lie. As your listeners have seen, in the last five months, you wouldn’t even know that Donald J. Trump was ever the president. You wouldn’t even know that those four years of his presidency existed. George Orwell wrote a book, ‘1984.’ He talked about a concept called the ‘memory hole.’ If the government in charge didn’t want you to remember someone, they put them in the memory hole. Donald J. Trump has been put in a memory hole, Make America Great Again has been put in a memory hole. In other words, ‘oh, it never happened.’

Recall that it was Donald Trump who told his flock that what they were seeing and hearing was not reality.
