In the immediate wake of the January 6th attack on the Capitol, then-House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stood on the House floor and laid the full blame for the riot on Donald Trump’s padded suit jacket shoulders.
Receipts for the MAGAts in the cheap seats:
Immediately after McCarthy dared to speak out against TFG, he jumped on a plane to make a pilgrimage to Mar-a-Lago to get on his knees and beg forgiveness so that he could keep passing open windows without worry.
But treasonous Trump facts remain facts, and now all of MAGA is freaking out thanks to the impending Trump indictments they’ve been trying to distract us from instead of holding their Dreadful Leader accountable.
Look at this kkkrap that Kremlin KKKevin tweeted on Saturday because Donny’s all a-scared:
Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump.
I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by… https://t.co/elpbh7LeWn

Kremlin KKKevin knows full well that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg can bring any charges he wants against Donald Trump, and there’s nothing any MAGA member of Congress can do about it.
Bragg is part of New York State’s judicial system which the U.S. Congress has no jurisdiction over.
But the Weaker Speaker also knows that MAGAts are dumb obtuse sheeple cultists who’ll willfully twist themselves into a Trumppretzel of propaganda instead of admitting anything truthful about him.
This is only the beginning, of course. We’re expecting more indictments from New York Attorney General Letitia James and Fulton County DA Fani Willis, plus that pesky little DOJ Special Counsel investigation has picked up some excellent intel.
The reactions from both sides are the stuff of legend, with McCarthy and Marjorie Nazi Greene leading the pro-Trump propaganda while liberal Twitter is bringing their own swagger with the legal facts.
My suggestion: save plenty of room for the sumptuous schadenfreude we’ll all be able to feast on in the coming weeks while we keep holding them all accountable.

BE SMART: Something legal experts have repeatedly said to me is that the shortest path between @realDonaldTrump and a jail cell will be a judge seeing statements like this and imposing release conditions up to and including a gag order, and Mr Trump flagrantly violating them. https://t.co/gjGXa70Buc
