This dude is so insecure about his Mario Cart driver (H/T Stormy Daniels):
Well, he does finally have something for the history books to remember: he lead the largest coup attempt in US History.
While the Capitol was under attack on Jan. 6, former President Donald Trump remained out of sight from the public and watched TV in the White House private dining room, ABC News’ chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl revealed on ABC’s “This Week.”
…The former president liked what he saw, boasted about the size of the crowd and argued with aides who wanted him to tell his supporters to stop rioting, according to Karl’s sources.
So now we know that Hair Füror was watching it all unfold on teevee in his hidey-hole. Some choice tidbits from the books:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., called Trump to ask him to tell the rioters to leave the Capitol, Karl reports in his new book, “Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.”
McCarthy allegedly told Trump, “I just got evacuated from the Capitol! There were shots fired right off the House floor. You need to make this stop.”
A source familiar with the call between McCarthy and Trump said the former president pushed back, saying, “They are just more upset than you because they believe it more than you, Kevin,” referring to the lie that the election had been stolen.
That’s more complete dialog than what we’ve heard before. It still sounds kind of stilted, but we know if Trump was the source, he would have made K-Mac say “sir” in there somewhere.
Anyway, all of this story scans as true, even if some of the details might be slightly off. But I definitely can picture Hair Füror bragging about the size. That totally fits.
