It’s not going to make any difference because almost all people have already made up their minds. Those are the sad facts.
Truthfully, the hearings were not riveting television, although some of the video snippets were certainly interesting. And the video of the riot was entertaining in its own strange way.
If, like me, you know that Trump himself knew that he lost the election, and that this whole thing was only the consequence of Trump not being willing to give up the one thing he craves more than anything else — power (and the incessant attention that comes with power) — and not because there is anything wrong with our election system.
Well, there are things wrong with our election system, but they mostly have to do with gerrymandering and the electoral college and overrepresentation of rural states in the Senate, and those things are not going to be fixed anytime soon.
And, of course, those things have nothing to do with Trump losing the 2020 election.
Trump — as is already well known — did nothing at all to protect the Capitol from the evolving riot. No, instead he watched it all on television, and clearly enjoyed himself the whole time.
Even Ivanka believed that Trump had lost the election. Bill Barr knew. Sean Hannity knew. Kayleigh McEnany knew. Mark Meadows knew. They all knew. And they were considering using the 25th Amendment to get Trump out of office ahead of time. That’s the truth, as opposed to the Big Lie.
