    Exactly, the Trump lawyers videos were edited. But the dislikes are too blinded by Trump's delusions and overt, political far-right bias to understand that. The comment section is just swarming with trolls and critics who listen to the ravings of a lying, insulting orange wretch who sits in the comfort of a Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach, FL.

    REP. Schumer says it best. this is a gross distortion. WHY? you may ask. because the speech Trump gave was miles away from the Capital crowd. you're putting together two different locations and calling it one that's deceitful, nefarious, and despicable attempt by the MEDIA, to divide US all. So... Washington Post, just put your head down and eat some Crow and let's get on with Joe Biden's plan for unity. if Media is not willing to move forward to heal out great nation? Then they are part of the problem!!! and they're continued efforts to gaslight and smear is proof endpoint of a swamp.! and are part of the problem.

    Wow. This WaPo video is just a lie. The unrest started before DT even finished speaking. The presumption is that DT has total control of the crowd. Why didn't anyone else actively call for the crowd to disperse? Not their job? Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Harris and Omar have explicitly called for violence and were not held accountable. DT calls for peace before, during and after, but somehow that doesn't count. Total fantasy and wishful thinking.

    What else do you expect from the Trump Administration who made Misinformation, Disinformation and Outright Lies their Stock in Trade. Trump's Entire Life has been one giant lie. Only gulable Sycophantic Republican Cohorts believe anything Trump says. The Sad part is they know he is lying, but they choose Wilfull Ignorance over Truth. Cheers from Michael. Australia.

    .....the case could not have been more clear and the vote should have been unanimous to convict. The acquittal sends a message to the lunatics who would do violence for T * * * * at his behest. Unfortunately, the Retrumplicans would most likely have voted to acquit Mad King Donald, even if the mob had murdered Mike Pence. It was a sad day. The Retrumplicans who voted to acquit have no sense of decency. They are ALL obviously without conscience, without a moral compass, principles, character or integrity. They are nothing more than a collection of fraudulent, stuffed suits, only interested in their own political future and nothing else.....and that includes YOU. They don’t care about you even if you voted for them. I look forward to the day when T * * * * has to appear before a real court, a real judge and real jury in a real trial. My hope is he is convicted and spends the rest of his unnatural life in an orange jumpsuit behind bars for everything that happened on January 6th at the Capitol building. The Retrumplicans who voted to acquit him ARE ALL COMPLICIT!!!!! I hope they are ultimately convicted as well.

An american politician told criminals to remain criminals and continue to VIOLATE FEDERAL LAWS. Why is she still being paid by the same taxpayers whoms safety and welfare were her last concern???? IMPEACH palosi.

    Mitch McConnell repulsively uses words of righteousness while safely hiding behind excuses for inaction. When did he realize that 45's actions were foresee-able? Was this while he was the blocker-in-chief? Who is really responsible for the insurrection - the quarterback, the full-back or the blockers?

  • Donald Smith
    Donald Smith

    This WaPo ‘fact-checking’ presentation is lame. To incite insurrection, statements must be made before the insurrection starts, not after the start of the insurrection. So, while some of the democrats featured in this WaPo video may have instigated insurrection, Donald Trump did not, because the assault on the Capitol had already started before Donald Trump started speaking on January 6th. This is the January 6, 2021 timeline: Trump started speaking at precisely 12 o’clock noon and stopped speaking at precisely 1:11 pm, 1 hour and 11 minutes later, with Trump leaving the stage at 1:13 pm, EST. The violence at the Capitol was pre-planned starting at least a day, and probably several days before Trump started speaking on Jan. 6, so his words on Jan. 6th could not have incited the ‘insurrection’ that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. The initial breech of the bicycle rack barricades placed around the Capitol and manned by Capitol Police, occurred a 45 to 46 minute walk away from Trump’s speech, with the initial breech of the Capitol police line occurring at 12:55 pm according to Steven Sund, the head of the US Capitol Police that day. Sund also states that the crowd that conducted that breech started to show up at the bicycle rack barricades at 12:40 pm, 20 minutes before Trump started speaking, and 65 to 66 minutes before anyone attending Trump’s speech could have walked the 45 to 46 minutes from Trump’s speech to the Capitol even if they had left Trump’s speech as he spoke the first word of that speech that democrats say incited the Capitol breech. Trump left the stage at 1:13 pm, so, anyone in the crowd listening to Trump’s speech, who wanted to participate in the Capitol invasion, who left the speech for Tge Capitol at 1:13 pm, would not have begun to arrive at the Capitol until 45 to 46 minutes later, at almost 2 o’clock pm, more than an hour after the invasion of the Capitol began. Cell phone service that day was poor, but, even if cell phone service had been excellent, it would be absurd to think that rioters were, while battling with Capitol Police, simultaneously listening to an internet broadcast of Trump’s remarks. Therefore, all significant violence at the Capitol had ended before the first members of the crowd who came to Washington D.C. that day to hear President Trump speak could have reached the Capitol unless they left the Trump rally before Trump stopped speaking, or had even started speaking. and that has never happened at any Trump rally, ever. It didn’t happen on January 6th either.

    I think the fact-checkers missed the point that the word fight is used by many politicians, it could be stated as "let us continue to persevere" but fight is a stronger way of stating this. Trumps use of the word was in line with the way it is generally used in politics and not a call to violence. if your hate for Trump causes you to color or spin anything in a certain direction, then you have lost your objectivity and your credibility.
