'Coward': MAGA internet turns on Trump

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Politico

After years of fidelity, Donald Trump's most ardent online fans have finally turned on him.

All it took was for the president to acknowledge the reality of his loss a little over a day after they, the MAGA faithful, stormed the Capitol in a violent attempt to stop the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

“People were willing to die for this man and he just threw them all under the bus. That’s the only thing that’s shameful about the events of the past 36 hours,” Nick Fuentes, the host of the America First podcast and the unofficial leader of the white nationalist Groyper Army, angrily tweeted, shortly after Trump released a video Thursday night in which he conceded that Biden would be the next president and called for political reconciliation.

Cassandra Fairbanks, a prominent MAGA activist, tweeted: “[He] tells angry people to march to the capitol [and then] proceeds to throw his supporters under the bus.”

And there was anger. It was directed at Trump for letting things get this far. Over on Parler, the social media platform beloved by the MAGA community for its lax moderation policies, users erupted in a fury, calling him a number of expletives, a “dildo,” and “100% THE SWAMP.”

Have a laugh on these stupid people who are now waking up to the truth about Trump!

I believe the slap of reality came when he and his spokesperson called for the rioters to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Can you imagine having traveled that far, participated in that violent insurrection to hear those words. Think about that. He will want them back. Watch for an eleventh hour pardon for every single louse.

I remember reading Breitbart comments right after his election. They were threatening that if he was not 100% with them, they would turn on him. They both overplayed their power. Trump did not moderate so he never rose above 42% approval. His supporters did not let him moderate, and now they will never have the Presidency or Congress ever again.

Both Trump and his most fervent base destroyed themselves instead of moderating and getting at least some of what they wanted.

I don't even know what to think here. It's good that they are seeing him for what he is? It's WAY too late? Where were these great thinkers when he told them, and they believed it, that he won by a landslide and then went begging to GA for some votes to put him over the top? Where was this thinking when their billionaire chosen one was begging them for money?

He says "Let's march down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. I'll be right there with you" and he then is led off stage and gets in his car and goes back to his bedroom to safely watch them on TV. I wonder if the ones already arrested and facing jail time for being his stooge have even an inkling to how massively they have been duped for 5 years?

Yes, some of them are puzzled and angry, but it seems that most of them still believe he is going to be president again on the 20th. Another paragraph:

“In no way did Trump say he conceded. He said: transitioning to a new Admin. As in, he gonna clear this one out and bring a new one,” tweeted We The Inevitable, a conspiracy account, getting more than 3,000 retweets within the hour. The account’s followers agreed that this was surely a sign that he was getting rid of Vice President Mike Pence — now cast as a MAGA traitor after participating in the certification of Biden’s win — and that on Jan. 20, retired Gen. Michael Flynn, now a full-fledged QAnon patriot, would replace him in Trump’s second term.
