GOP Actively Constructing Alternate Reality To Support Trump's Fantasy - Rachel Maddow - MSNBC



Rachel Maddow reports on Republican members of Congress offering bizarre revisionist descriptions of the January 6th insurrection and Rep. Liz Cheney is purged from GOP leadership for pointing out that Donald Trump lost the 2020 election and state level Republicans continue to attack voting rights, all to try to create a world that better fits Trump's fantasy that the election was stolen from him. Aired on 05/12/21.

The more they try the worse it will get for them. It's not the same as convincing people that the Democrats are just out to get Trump on impeachment - they have the video.

That's what these hypocrites conveniently forget - the insurrection and the perpetrators are right there on video! And more of them have been rounded up and charged each and every day. And it's the same with McConnell and McCarthy and the deranged former guy, denial of what they previously said is impossible when it's all there on video!

3. Sorry

Aware of too many cases of people being incarcerated even when the evidence did not corroborate with the charges. Hell, there are people in prison right now who have had been exonerated by whatever means and they are still there because of 'procedures'. I wish I could say with some certainty that there is 'no way'. But, then I remember 'War of the Worlds' and what my grandmother told me about that incident. Bear in mind that there were plenty of people in the towns that were mentioned in the broadcast who could see with their own eyes that there were no Martian Tripods walking around their small, open-air towns, and yet...
