Just hours before the January 6th House Select Committee’s third hearing on Thursday, Donald Trump released a statement complaining that the “lack of airtime” for his response was “unfair” to him. He also took his message to his flailing Twitter-impostor app Truth Social, and soon a screenshot of his all-caps post reading I DEMAND EQUAL TIME! soon made the rounds on Twitter, and of course, all the liberal accounts had a blast dragging him with the obvious solution: show up, get sworn in, and spill.
Trump wouldn’t show up to testify before the House Select Committee no matter what, but he certainly wants his base to believe that he would. You know, just like he would’ve run into the scene of a mass shooting to save people, as he once bragged, despite being a lifelong coward from Bone Spurs to Biden. Toxic male false bravado, amirite?
Seriously, this picture of him is the best worst picture. That’s who he is. There are other terrible pictures of him, but this one is my favorite terrible Trump photo. Because he’s terrible. And he’d never tell the truth about himself even if you put screws on those tiny thumbs.
Trump just tweeted “ I DEMAND EQUAL TIME!”

Anyway, his statements whines a whole bunch of word salad: “The Fake News Networks are perpetuating lies, falsehoods, and Russia, Russia, Russia type disinformation (same sick people, here we go again!) by allowing the low rated but nevertheless one-sided and slanderous Unselect Committee hearings to go endlessly and aimlessly on (and on and on!),” Trump wrote. Yeah, Paw-Paw is sundowning, I don’t know why it’s so hard to just arrest him. But it’s still super easy to own him.

Donald Trump just responded to the Jan. 6 hearings, ranting: " I DEMAND EQUAL TIME!"
I have a great idea for you, little Don. Come and testify under oath. You'll get as much time as you want. Deal?

I’m with Trump, I too demand he get equal time. In a cell at Gitmo, right next to his coup-conspirators…

I DEMAND EQUAL TIME!
People in Hell demand ice water!
How about 11 hours of testimony?
Oh, there is that one pesky condition. You can tell your story, but if you lie…a buzzer goes off, and you go directly to jail, do not pass go!

Yeah, Twitter had fun at his expense. Including Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), my Dem Crush who also is bringing a lawsuit against Trump for his role in the January 6th plot. He’s pretty great, see for yourself.
Equal time means sitting your lying ass in a witness chair.

But Rep. Swalwell is even better when he’s dragging Trump live and on camera. Here he is on CNN talking about the potential benefits and drawbacks of having Trump speak under oath at the January 6th hearings after he publicly asked for “equal time” to share his side of the story.
