What else can it be to call the most powerful nation on earth  "a joke" ?

The most "powerful" nation joker has also transformed the EU into a circus, easily surpassing the stature of Cirque du Soleil, which encapsulated the entire topic here.

All of Singalion’s responses were nothing more than mere rejection of evidence presented by the father of the underaged kid who was brought to a drag show by his teacher. In that show, there was a convicted paedophile. 
 

 

...While we are still waiting for some real evidence...

Don't act like Trump, 7heaven,... 

 

Wait, I will record a video and claim Ted Cruz raped his High School friend... and then - following 7heaven's flawed logic - it's evidence...

 

Now, I know why the Republican "evidence" never matches the truth...

The police chief who responded to the Uvalde has been suspended in any case. 

 

Exactly Governor Abbott should resign for the Uvalde disaster. 

 

His police force blatantly failed and allowed innocent people to be killed in the disaster...

Can you imagine this happens in a Republican run US state with Republican police heads and Republican District Attorneys? 

 

Is that what the Republican call hardline response by the police force?

 

The Uvalde Police Response Was An "Abject Failure," Top Law Enforcement Officials Said

Officers could have stopped the shooter within three minutes, but the incident commander "decided to place the lives of officers before the lives of children," said Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw.

Posted on June 22, 2022

 

Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw slammed Uvalde police’s response to the shooting at Robb Elementary, calling it an “abject failure and antithetical to everything we’ve learned over the last two decades since the Columbine massacre.”

The May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary was one of the deadliest school shootings in history, leaving two teachers and 19 students — most of whom were fourth-graders — dead, just days before summer vacation would have started.

 

During the Tuesday hearing in the state Senate, McCraw gave the most detailed timeline of the shooting yet, walking through it minute by gut-wrenching minute.

Police waited over an hour before confronting the shooter, and have previously evaded questions about why they hesitated. In the days after the attack, police officials claimed they did not take immediate action because they believed everyone in the classroom was already dead — despite the fact that some children were still calling 911 begging for help.

But according to McCraw, police could have stopped the shooter within three minutes of him entering the school — they simply chose to prioritize their own safety instead. McCraw particularly criticized the incident commander, Pete Arredondo, police chief for the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District.

“Three minutes after the subject entered the west building, there were sufficient numbers of armed officers wearing body armor to isolate, distract, and neutralize the subject,” McCraw said. “The only thing stopping the hallway of dedicated officers from entering Room 111 and 112 was the on-scene commander, who decided to place the lives of officers before the lives of children.

 

 

 

=> Gov Abbotts big fail!!!

More of the Texan Uvalde disaster!

 

Republican Abbott's police waiting for a key to the class rooms, while the doors were unlocked!

 

 

 

The Uvalde Police Response Was An "Abject Failure," Top Law Enforcement Officials Said

 

“The officers had weapons; the children had none. The officers had body armor; the children had none. The officers had training; the subject had none,” McCraw continued. “One hour, 14 minutes, and eight seconds — that’s how long the children waited and the teachers waited in Room 111 to be rescued.”

In trying to explain their slowness to act, police have previously claimed the classroom doors were locked and they had to wait for a key.

But the doors were never actually locked, McCraw said — in fact, the classroom doors could not lock from the inside at all.

“We’ve gone back and checked in our interviews [to ask], ‘Did anybody touch the door and try it? How about, Do you need a key?’” he said. “‘How about trying the door and seeing if it’s unlocked?’

“And of course," McCraw said, “no one had.”

Shocking details of the deadly mistakes made by Uvalde police have been coming out since the shooting...

 

 

Abbott, is this the Texan Republican style of defunding the police?

Now, why didn't I see you calling for the resignations of the governors of California and New York to take accountability for the mass shooting in their respective Sacramento and Buffalo? Is it because they are Democrats? Oh  ... of course, the are. And you really don't have to keep proving to us all the time as to how big a hypocrite you are, you know?

Did the police in Buffalo and Sacramento hesitate to take action? Did the police wait for a key behind unlocked doors for hours???

What?

 

First and foremost, New York’s so-called red flag law failed to prevent the racist massacre in Buffalo, even though the mass shooter, Payton Gendron, made the threat during an online class discussion at Susquehanna Valley High School as early as June 2021. The threat consisted of him saying his post-graduation goal was to commit a murder/suicide. The state law allows judges to issue an extreme risk protection order that temporarily prevents people who pose a danger to themselves or others from buying or possessing firearms. But yet, he still managed to get his hands on firearms. 

 

New York’s “red flag law” should have prevented the Buffalo shooting - Vox

 

As for the Sacramento case, police got a call a little after 8 p.m. Saturday about a disturbance at that address involving a group of people who were potentially poised to start fighting. In a video, two brothers appear standing in a parking lot brandishing guns while a Sacramento police cruiser can be seen driving by in the video. But yet, eight officers were subsequently redirected so that they can address a call about two at-risk children in the area. Sure, concerns about the children may take precedence. But to redirect EIGHT officers to address a call about two children in the area, even while a Sacramento police cruiser drove by the two brothers brandishing guns in a parking lot, and then letting them get away with it?? And just a few more hours later, a burst of gunfire rocketed through the K Street mall downtown.

 

New videos upend narrative of Sacramento mass shooting - Los Angeles Times (latimes.com)

 

So no, the police in Buffalo and Sacramento did not wait for a key behind unlocked doors for hours. They did worse! They waited hours for the mass shooting to happen first before they took action! 

 

But of course ... how can I forget that sing-a-liar is a proponent of mass shooters and a Democrat supporter as well!

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Booed Outside Uvalde School Where Gunman Killed 21: 'Shame on You'

May 30, 2022 

 

 

 

Republicans turn their head on Governor Abbott!

 

 

Videos show an angry crowd booing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott at the Uvalde elementary school memorial

Abbott came under fire this week after commenting that the mass shooting "could've been worse." He also blamed mass shootings on mental health concerns, despite there being no concrete evidence that the Texas gunman had a mental illness. 

Abbott has consistently pushed for relaxed gun restrictions in Texas. In 2021, he supported a series of laws to expand gun rights and access, including one that makes it legal to carry a handgun without a license

He also tweeted in 2015 that he was "embarrassed" about Texas being the second-ranked state in the number of gun purchases, telling Texans to "pick up the pace."

Has Texas Turned on Greg Abbott?

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was met with boos and jeers when he arrived in Uvalde on Sunday, days after the deadliest school shooting in the state's history.

 

"We need change, governor," a man can be heard shouting in a video of the moment that has since gone viral.

Abbott, a Republican, has faced heavy criticism since an 18-year-old gunman with an AR-15-style rifle opened fire inside Robb Elementary School on May 24, killing 19 children and two teachers.

Today I watched the shortly scheduled  6th day of the Jan 6 Committee Hearings.  This was good, to the point, as always.

 

I am so happy witnessing American History in the making.  These Hearings are an important part of it.   They reveal how corrupt a government can get when the electorate doesn't pay attention and get duped by a miserable demagogue, who is willing to resort to any criminality to remain in power.  

 

Watch these Hearings and you will understand why I call Donald Trump all the names I use on him.

Just wonder how the deaths of the immigrants in the truck can be the problem of the US president?

 

Did Biden smuggle the people into the US?

 

And why don't you blame the Texan Governor Abbott, who failed his police force to be alert and check on the truck earlier?

 

The major problems arose when Trump cut all the Central American aid programs. After this period the people in the central American. Same goes for Trump and the border wall rhetoric. This caused immigrants fearing they would not make it to the US and caused a huge run onto the border.

 

Also this distortion of speeches, the Mexican president was talking about poverty and desperation in the Central American countries and not in the US.

 

Quote:

"Speaking at his daily briefing, Mr Lopez Obrador, popularly known as Amlo, called the discovery a "tremendous tragedy", and said Mexico would work to repatriate the remains of its citizens.

This and other migrant deaths were due to the "poverty and desperation of our Central American brothers, and of Mexicans," he said."

 

 

The US needs to spend more in those countries and diversify potential investments to keep the people in their countries. Did any harsh Anti immigration rhetoric achieve anything in the past?

Jan 6 hearings: Ex-aide paints devastating picture of Trump

By Anthony Zurcher
North America reporter

BBC June 29, 2022

 

Up until now, the congressional committee investigating the 6 January attack on the Capitol was missing a key piece of the puzzle - the testimony of someone who could offer a first-hand account of the situation in the White House in the hours before and during the attack.

Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, filled in the blanks. And she has painted a devastating picture, including an allegation, which Trump denies, that he tried to grab the steering wheel of the car he was travelling in and wrestled with a Secret Service officer in an attempt to divert his motorcade to the Capitol, where his supporters were gathering.

A threat of violence ignored

Very early in the proceedings, the committee went to lengths to establish how the White House, and the president himself, knew that there was a very real threat of violence on 6 January - and did nothing to stop it.

Ms Hutchinson testified that Mr Meadows told her he thought, days before the attack, that things "might get real, real bad".

She spoke of how White House officials were warned of the potential for violence. And, in perhaps the most damning testimony so far, she said Donald Trump personally knew that members of the crowd at his morning rally near the White House were armed because they were being turned away by Secret Service officers - and directed them to the Capitol anyway.

"I don't [expletive] care that they have weapons. They're not here to hurt me," Ms Hutchinson said she heard the president say. "Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here."

A president enraged

Some of Ms Hutchinson's most damning testimony came second hand, however. She recounted how a White House official told her that the president had insisted on traveling to the Capitol after his White House rally - something he said he would do during his speech. When he learned the motorcade was going back to the White House, he attempted to grab the steering wheel and wrestled with a Secret Service officer.

"I'm the [expletive] president," Trump said, according to Hutchinson. "Take me up to the Capitol now."

Since Ms Hutchinson's testimony, a source close to the Secret Service has told CBS News that both the agent and driver travelling in the car with Mr Trump were willing to testify under oath that the former president did not physically attack either of them and never attempted to grab the steering wheel.

 

Later in the day, Ms Hutchinson recounted hearing Mr Meadows say that, upon learning that rioters were calling for Vice-President Mike Pence to be hanged, Mr Trump expressed approval.

"He thinks Mike deserves it," Ms Hutchinson said she overheard her boss say. "He doesn't think they're doing anything wrong."

In a trial court, such evidence would be considered hearsay and treated with scepticism. In the hearing room, however, it was explosive - and will be used by the committee to pressure senior Trump officials who have so far refused to testify, like White House top lawyer Pat Cipollone, to come forward and either corroborate or refute her accounts.

 

"If you heard this testimony today and suddenly you remember things you couldn't previously recall, or you discover some courage you had hidden away somewhere, our doors remain open," committee chair Bennie Thompson said at the conclusion of the day's hearing.

A composed witness

The January 6th committee, with its surprise announcement of a mystery witness and new evidence unearthed, set a glaring spotlight on Ms Hutchinson during her in-person testimony on Tuesday.

Trump and Meadows on big screen at Jan 6 hearingImage source, Getty Images

For a 25-year-old woman who four years ago was a White House college intern, she held up to the pressure remarkably well.

She answered the committee's questions in a calm, methodical voice, noting how and under what circumstances she gained the information she was recounting. The committee made a point of showing how Ms Hutchinson's office was just a few doors down from the president's Oval Office and how she controlled access to Mr Meadow's office, giving her a prime position with which to witness - and, at times, overhear - conversations between key figures in the run-up to the Capitol attacks.

 

Her meticulous recollection of events and account suggest she may have kept a record of the events during her time at the White House or, at the very least, has an electronic record of texts and emails that supports her claims.

Donald Trump's rebuttal

As Ms Hutchinson was giving her at times damning account of the president's actions before and during the 6 January attack, Mr Trump took to his social media platform and began trying to undercut her claims.

 

Much of it was typical of the way he has responded to past critics, saying that he hardly knows Ms Hutchinson but hears "very negative" things about her. He called her a phony and a "leaker" and suggested she was bitter because he didn't give her a job after leaving the White House.

He went on to deny many of the episodes Ms Hutchinson described and, once again, noted that he said in his rally speech that the crowd should march on the Capitol "peacefully".

It's always an open question whether any negative stories of Mr Trump's behaviour will dent his popularity among his supporters. Tuesday's testimony, and the five hearings before it, however, may remind some Republicans of the kind of chaos that frequently swirled around the Trump presidency and that, while he had some conservative accomplishments while in office, he also presided over his party losing both chambers of Congress and the White House.

Given that a potential 2024 opponent, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, is rising in head-to-head-polls against Mr Trump, these hearings may have caused real damage to the former president's political power.

No, he didn't smuggle neither did he try to stop them, as much as Donald Trump did.  Most criminals are not present at the crime seen to make it easier for you to point finger at.

January 6 hearings: Trump urged armed supporters to storm Capitol - aide

By Sam Cabral
BBC News, Washington

29 June 2022

 

Donald Trump knew supporters had weapons when he urged them to storm the Capitol to overturn the 2020 election, a former White House aide has said.

 

Ex-aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified to the committee probing the 6 January 2021 riots that Mr Trump and his top staff knew the potential for violence.

 

But a planned rally went ahead, with Mr Trump saying the armed attendees were "not here to hurt me".

 

The president also demanded to join the march on the Capitol himself, she said.

 

Up until now, the congressional panel was missing testimony from inside the room - someone who could offer a first-hand account of the situation in the White House in the critical hours before and during the attack.

 

But at its sixth hearing on Tuesday - hastily announced with what the committee said was the revelation of new evidence - Ms Hutchinson, 25, filled in the blanks.

 

As principal advisor to Mr Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows, she sat just feet from the Oval Office and spoke daily with Mr Meadows.

 

She recounted that several top officials warned repeatedly that Mr Trump's rally on 6 January could spiral out of control.

 

During her testimony, Ms Cassidy said:

  • Days before the attack Mr Meadows predicted that things "could get real, real bad" on 6 January
  • When told on 6 January that Mr Trump's supporters had brought guns, knives and other weapons with them, Mr Meadows barely looked up from his phone and asked "anything else?"
  • Mr Trump was angered when told that Secret Service agents were turning away his supporters because they were armed and setting off security devices
  • "They're not here to hurt me" and "let them in", Mr Trump said
  • Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told the White House the event could be "dangerous for the president's legacy"
  • White House counsel Pat Cipollone expressed concerns it would look like the White House was inciting a riot
  •  

As she was speaking, Mr Trump denied her account on his Truth Social online platform, saying: "I didn't want or request that we make room for people with guns to watch my speech. Who would ever want that?"

 

Other parts of Ms Hutchinson's testimony portrayed the former president as reacting angrily when he was upset by certain events.

 

When attorney general William Barr dismissed the president's election fraud claims in a December 2020 interview, Mr Trump smashed crockery in a rage - which Ms Hutchinson said he had done in the past - and sent ketchup splattering onto the walls of a White House dining room.

 

And after his supporters marched to the Capitol, Mr Trump insisted he wanted to join them, she said.

 

Mr Trump lunged for the steering wheel of his presidential limo after he was told he could not be taken to the Capitol, she said she was told by another aide. He was eventually returned to the White House.

 

Mr Trump denied the claim that he attempted to commandeer his limousine, writing online: "Wouldn't even have been possible to do such a ridiculous thing".

 

A source close to the Secret Service told CBS News that the driver and another officer are willing to testify that the former president did not try to grab the steering wheel.

 

Ms Hutchinson also said that her boss, Mr Meadows, had sought a pardon from the president after the riot.

 

During her testimony, she recalled seeing Mr Trump's tweet, condemning his vice-president, Mike Pence, for lacking the "courage" to overturn the election results.

 

 

Mr Pence rejected claims he had the power to halt the congressional certification of the election.

"As an American I was disgusted... It was unpatriotic, it was un-American, and you were watching the Capitol building get defaced over a lie," she said.

 

In a statement following her testimony, her lawyers said "her duty" compelled Ms Hutchinson to testify to the committee.

 

Ms Hutchinson is one in a series of Republicans and former White House staffers to co-operate with the congressional probe.

 

Vice chairwoman Liz Cheney, one of only two Republicans on the committee, praised her co-operation with the inquiry, saying that Trump allies have pressured fellow Republicans to "continue to be a team player".

 

The select committee has conducted a nearly year-long investigation into how Trump supporters invaded Congress to disrupt lawmakers as they certified Democrat Joe Biden's election victory.

It plans to continue its work with at least two more public hearings next month.

Oh please! As if pumping more money into Central America is going to help stamp out any more illegal immigration. Hahahahaha! 

 

Yeah, Biden did not smuggle the people into the US ... but he is sure welcoming them into the country in his deadly open-door policies! 

 

Well, with thi strailer of hot dead bodies happening, let's see how SCOTUS will rule this week on the the issues of Biden versus Texas. And we will see if whether it is required for Department of Homeland Security to continue implementing the Migrant Protection Protocols, a former policy under Donald Trump which certain noncitizens arriving at the southwest border were returned to Mexico during their immigration proceedings. And we will see whether the U.S. Court of Appeals erred by concluding that the secretary of homeland security’s new decision terminating MPP had no legal effect?

Even the President of Mexico blames USA (meaning  🅱ℹ↩📧) for those deaths. I guess that is also misinformation: Texas migrant deaths: Mexico blames poverty and US border crisis - BBC News 

 

"Poverty and desperation" led to the deaths of at least 50 migrants abandoned in a Texas lorry, Mexico's president has said.

 

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador blamed trafficking and "a lack of control" at the border - the worst case of migrant deaths due to smuggling in the US.


This is alarming. Even the Mexico President is blaming the lack of control at Mexico-US border and US interior. 
 

Biden immigration policies had induced so many illegal immigrants to take the dangerous path to enter US and it doesn’t help that his Homeland security department is also not controlling and securing the border properly. Biden’s federal government is making border states like Texas work extremely tough by having to pick up the pieces caused by Biden’s lax immigration policies. 
 

A record 1.73million illegal crossings happened in 2021 under Biden, and apparently this record will be broken again this year by Biden administration. Unnecessary deaths happened too, and what must it take for Biden administration to secure the borders? 
 


—————

 

Speaking at his daily briefing, Mr Lopez Obrador, popularly known as Amlo, called the discovery a "tremendous tragedy", and said Mexico would work to repatriate the remains of its citizens.

 

This and other migrant deaths were due to the "poverty and desperation of our Central American brothers, and of Mexicans," he said, adding: "It happens because there is trafficking of people and a lack of control, in this case at the Mexican-US border, but also in the US interior".

 

 

Immigration is a contentious political issue in the US, where in May a record 239,000 undocumented migrants were detained crossing into the country from Mexico - many travelling along extremely risky and unsafe routes.

 

At least 650 migrants crossing the border died last year, according to the United Nations' International Organisation for Migration.

 

US law enforcement officials are on track to exceed the record 1.73 million border arrests made in 2021, with large numbers of people continuing to cross from Central American countries such as Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

And under Trump the border was closed?

 

You forgot to mention the 2 million immigrants that entered the US under Trump.

 

Statistics made clear already that Trump failed in containing illegal immigration.

 

Your attempt to build a new myth has already been debunked before it even head off...

Trump also failed in containing illegal immigration:

 

Here the facts:

 

The number of migrants intercepted at the border had been steadily rising since April 2020.

 

During the Trump administration, migrant encounters hit a monthly high of more than 144,000 in May 2019.

 

In 2019 (calendar year) 1,25 million immigrants entered illegally the US.

 

During the Trump administration, the 2019 financial year (running from October 2018 to September 2019) saw more than 800,000 migrants apprehended at the border - the most since 2007.

 

There were years in the early 2000s when more than one million migrants were intercepted crossing the US-Mexico border, with a peak of more than 1.6 million in 2000. (Also before Trump the US encountered an immigration issue...)

 

 

=> The immigration drive into the US started already under Trump!

Your Trump Derangement Syndrome is getting pretty severe. Still blaming Donald Trump even 1.5 years after Biden became President? You might as well go ahead and blame Washington and Lincoln for all of Biden's failures! Hahahaha!

Distraction as usual. 
 

Even Mexico President is aware the illegal immigration crisis today is due to lack of control at Mexican-US border and US interior, which is in the control of Biden administration. 

 

Under Biden in 2021, there was already a record 1.73million, far more than any other Presidents’ administrations before Biden’s. And this year, this record is expected to once again be broken by Biden himself. 
 

In this case alone, 50 people died trying to illegally cross into US. This shows that Biden’s homeland security/border patrol is not effectively preventing and deterring such dangerous and fatal crossings.

There is no distraction at all. Because facts don't lie.

 

But the lack of control at the US Mexican border happened under Trump, Bush Sr, Bush Jr and Reagan also.

 

It is nothing new.

 

As such there is no logic point in your post.

 

 

Trump did not implement any effective border control during his term also, why did 1.25 million illegal immigrants slip through to the US under Trump just in 2019???

Worse to worse Trump even failed in deportations and had the worst deportation numbers than any president in the past 20 years. These are all facts.

And even much worse, Trump was caught employing illegal immigrants at his construction sites and golf clubs.

OH COME ON! What is 1.25 million in 2019 compared to the 1.66 million in 2021? That's 50% more than the 1.25 million number, you know? Why are you ignoring that? Is Biden trying to encourage the employment of illegal immigrants at the various construction sites and golf clubs as well?? Why are you turning a blind eye to those numbers which is 50% greater than that 1.25 million number which you are so worried about? We know you are a L-I-A-R, but are you BLIND as well?  LOL! 

 

And look at the number of migrant encounters in those years that Trump was the President. Why on earth shouldn't the number of deportations be the lowest in the past 20 years when the number of encounters also happens to be pretty low?

The distinction between Democrats and Republicans is not apparent to me. They are all representatives of white supremacy. What do you think about Nancy Pelosi elbowing a kid with color?  Texas looks to have evolved into a beacon where the lives of innocent people can be taken. If that is what humanity looks like in America, it says a lot.

 

LOL!   It is so clear that you are not an American living in the US.    Because to us,  the distinction between Democrats and Republicans is as obvious as between light and dark.   Democrats are progressive, with a pursuit of equality.  Republicans only care for capitalistic exploitation.

The blaming of Donald Trump does not come only from @singalion.   It comes from THE FACTS, and from me, he he.  He was the worst offender of "not taking control"  when there was no clear benefit to him or it was against his interests.  Examples are his failure to take control of the Covid pandemic when it started, afraid that the pandemic would damage his reelection, and taking control of the armed crowd after it broke into the Capitol.

 

And indeed he does not remain the President of the United States,  and very probably will never be it again.  This does not completely eliminate the evil,  because competing with him with his eyes on the presidency is the governor of Florida,  Ron DeSantis,  who is nearly as abominable as Trump and seems to have even less of a brain.

Correct. Facts don’t lie. As pointed out by Guest Guest, under Biden in 2021, the number of migrants encountered were 1.66million which was the highest since 1960! Such 50-year record is a fact and it shows Biden administration has lost control of securing the southern border. 
 

And in the recent San Antonio tragedy, Biden’s immigration policies coupled with his Homeland Security dept had arguably resulted in 51 lives lost. Is Biden going to visit the border and offer comfort to families of these victims and instruct his fellow House and Senate Democrats to pass stricter laws to crack down on illegal immigration? 
 

Let’s see what will Biden do to curb the unrelentless surge of illegal immigrants.

I have been fighting here the badmouthing about America being the "greatest evil".  THIS is misinformation. 

 

Oh no, you couldn't have been more wrong. For a country who enjoys waging wars on countries, testing their latest warweapons by killing the masses in the countries they are invading, the Americans are  no different from the Japs who enjoyed beheading innocent civilians to test the sharpness of their samurai swords during WWII. America is not the "greatest evil"  but an epitome of PURE EVIL.

Wow, for this you are so right ! The second America civil war is oh so long overdue ! Damn ! The Democrats and Republicans should  work much harder to foster the deep hate and divide to reach the boiling point!  I'm still waiting for the finale civil war to happen.  Hopefully it will happen soon, if not at least a consolation event where the states of America split and disunite themselves.  That will be interesting to watch.. *munching popcorn*

YES!   It is time you start munching popcorn,  because it seems that so far you have been munching US POLITICAL POISON!

 

Also recommended for you is to start reading about the moral principles of most religions,  because it is not of a healthy mind to start "waiting for finale civil wars to happen",   no matter where.    Are you also waiting for global nuclear war?  In this case eat plenty of popcorn, because after this war there might not be any left.

We surely live much longer if we don't take things too seriously.

 

So I was laughing while watching Steve Colbert's show with his comments about the Jan 3 Committee's 6th Hearing.  He took it with a lot of humor,  surely much more than Donald Trump did.
