On January 6th, Donald Trump told his supporters that he would be following them down to the Capitol building. Many of them chose to join him. And now legal bills are mounting for those insurrectionists who have been charged.
Some of those rioters have become well known to the public. Jenna Ryan, who flew to the insurrection on a private jet, later said she wouldn’t go to jail because she was blonde and white. The Texas realtor was subsequently sentenced to 60 days in prison.
Ryan is now crowd funding for her legal defense. This tickled late night host Jimmy Kimmel wore tore into her during his Tuesday show.
After noting that the rioter is asking for donations, Kimmel said, “Yes, I believe it was the Apostle Matthew who said, ‘Blessed are those who pay legal fees for idiots for they shall be screwed out of 20 bucks.’Not only did Jenna ask for financial support, she went on the local news to beg her cult leader for help, too. Right, I sent money, I drank bleach, I did everything this man asked of me. And this is the thanks I get?”
The late night host closed, “If you live in North Texas and you’re looking to buy a house from Jenna Ryan, act quick because the open house is about to close.”
