Donald Trump got an early warning. But he did not treat the US citizens as adults. Thus, no appropriate countermeasures were taken. Trump got thousands of people killed.

One reason for hiding the truth is that one of the main components of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign was to take his followers to the streets – and finally to the lawn and steps of the US Capitol. In order to create a furious mob, Trump had to downplay the CoViD-19 hazard. Trump sacrificed his followers (and also their families, friends and colleagues).

Example from MarchToSaveAmerica.com for a CoViD-19 disclaimer (2021-01-06):

By registering for this event, you understand and expressly acknowledge that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. In attending the event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge the host venue; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory, whether in negligence or otherwise, for any illness or injury.

American Thinker’s Apology

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/01/statement.html:

American Thinker and contributors Andrea Widburg, R.D. Wedge, Brian Tomlinson, and Peggy Ryan have published pieces [Google search] on www.AmericanThinker.com that falsely accuse US Dominion Inc., Dominion Voting Systems, Inc., and Dominion Voting Systems Corporation (collectively “Dominion”) of conspiring to steal the November 2020 election from Donald Trump. These pieces rely on discredited sources who have peddled debunked theories about Dominion’s supposed ties to Venezuela, fraud on Dominion’s machines that resulted in massive vote switching or weighted votes, and other claims falsely stating that there is credible evidence that Dominion acted fraudulently.

These statements are completely false and have no basis in fact. Industry experts and public officials alike have confirmed that Dominion conducted itself appropriately and that there is simply no evidence to support these claims.

It was wrong for us to publish these false statements. We apologize to Dominion for all of the harm this caused them and their employees. We also apologize to our readers for abandoning 9 journalistic principles and misrepresenting Dominion’s track record and its limited role in tabulating votes for the November 2020 election. We regret this grave error.

Who Held the Guard Back?

So, our Guard mobilized and was ready. But we couldn’t actually cross over the border into D.C. without the OK. And that was quite some time. We kept running it up the flagpole, our generals talking to the National Guard generals. And eventually, I got a call from Ryan McCarthy, the secretary of the Army, asking if we could come into the city. But we had already been mobilizing,

Hogan told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Mob Makes the Trumps Happy


Donald Trump Jr. Video Shows Happy Family, Friends Backstage at Rally Prior to Capitol Riot That Killed 5
By Dan Mangan, CNBC • Published January 8, 2021 • Updated on January 8, 2021 at 7:44 pm

Snopes:

What’s True:
A video by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, showed Trump and members of his inner circle dancing, smiling, and watching television screens inside a private tent at Ellipse Park near the White House on Jan. 6, 2021. The footage was recorded roughly one hour before some supporters started breaking security barriers at the Capitol.

What’s False:
The screens inside the tent did not show supporters breaching or vandalizing the Capitol. Rather, they depicted a crowd gathering in front of a stage where Trump would later speak for 70 minutes. The president reportedly watched the peak of the insurrection on television from inside the White House.

Statement on Violence at the Capitol

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Washington, DC) – Today, hundreds of thousands of Americans flocked to Washington, DC to attend the “Save America Rally” hosted by Women for America First and attended by President Donald J. Trump.

Following the event held at the Ellipse, violence broke out at the Capitol. In response, Amy Kremer, Chairwoman of Women for America First, issued the following statement:

“We unequivocally denounce violence of any type and under any circumstances. We are saddened and disappointed at the violence that erupted on Capitol Hill, instigated by a handful of bad actors, that transpired after the rally.

“Unfortunately, for months the left and the mainstream media told the American people that violence was an acceptable political tool. They were wrong. It is not.

“We stand by and strongly support the men and women of the Capitol Hill police and law enforcement in general and our organization played absolutely no role in the unfortunate events that transpired.

“What is truly sad, is that the misdeeds of a handful of people will overshadow the overwhelming success of the peaceful event – attended by hundreds of thousands of Americans – that we sponsored today.

“The movement that was launched by President Donald J. Trump is one that respects the rule of law, supports our law enforcement and believes that violence has no place in politics today.”
