Trump and the Right Respond to President Biden

Digby wrote a post about the Right’s response to President Biden’s speech this week. This says everything I want to say. Just go read it. Then come back.

(Among other things, righties are outraged there were Marines standing behind the Preisdent. Yes, of course no American president has ever before used military personnel as a prop for a political speech. How outrageous.)

Trump responded to the speech by claiming he is financially supporting some of the J6 defendants, and I hope there are reporters following up on that to see if it’s true. Trump has a history of claiming to have donated to or promising to donate to some cause or another, and then not doing it. I’m guessing that he hasn’t given a dime to a J6 defendant. He just said something that popped into his head that sounded good at the moment.
