Ted Lieu: Why is it that in America, the President-elect can't even take the train safely?

Because Donald Trump still spreads the Big Lie. He refuses to say he lost and Joe Biden won. This is what is fueling the rage and violence among Trumpís base. POTUS remains a clear & present danger.

WASHINGTON (AP) ó President-elect Joe Biden will no longer be taking an Amtrak train to Washington for his inauguration because of security concerns https://apnews.com/article/biden-inauguration-capitol-siege-joe-biden-donald-trump-ba7bcefad3a65bf9432e9178633baadd

9. It's amazing! Nobody's ever seen anything like it

America wasn't great until Donald Trump came along and now we have more military personnel posted in the capital than we have in Afghanistan and Iraq combined. Citizens can't take those socialist trains because we're now so fucking great. This guy came up to me, and with tears in his eyes, said . . .

5. "This is what is fueling the rage and violence among Trump's base."

It is one of the things fueling the rage on the right but not the only thing. Fox, Rush, News Max,
OAN, Hannity, Info Wars, God only knows how many web sites, and so on have bathed America
in misinformation for 2.5 generations ever since Reagan got rid of the Fairness Doctrine.

What we saw yesterday with the House Republicans was an example of people who have non news
propaganda outlets as their source of information for years. All they can do now is puke back up
sound bites of half truths and hate.

Example Gym Jordan in Trump's defense he talked about the Wright Brothers, Kitty Hawk, N.C.,
1903, and the first manned flight.

6. Answer: Republicans.

They were fine with radicalizing zealots when it gave them the numbers to win elections, so they don't get to disown them now.

8. Due to

tRumps utter incompetence and knowledge COVID came along, which he knew about and did not do anything about it? The big lies in that fascist handbook work for those who are very uneducated and believe what they see and hear.

He should be arrested immediately.
