1. His staff would have been monitoring his militia fans...Roger Stone could've kept him informed.

He had to have known that the Capitol was the purpose and everyone suspected violence would occur.

2. Yet he didn't even bother to join his favorites, traveling in a golf cart.

Wonder why?

3. Well, that was the whole point of the rally.

They were there to protest the certification. The Capitol would be the obvious focus since that was where it was occurring. Everyone knew that - Trump had been talking about it for weeks.

4. The CAP-itol...Heavy accent on the first syllable

Sounded like a drunk. It was eerie and malignant.

6. We've been doing that line AS Jerry Lewis for weeks.

His schtick is so weird - so Borscht Belt, so Vegas, so Rickles. It's not surprising it works on the elderly who remember it.

11. I get the impression that rump is very heavily influenced by 50s and 60s TV

 

He probably watched a LOT of tv. Iíve wondered whether he married two Eastern European came from an early acttraction to Eva Gabor on Green Acres...seriously.

14. That hadn't occurred to me but it makes a lot of sense.

I'd thought it was because Soviet-bloc Immigrants can't tell how awful he is - they can't see the affectations we can.

8. The permit was for

the rally only. The first law he got them to break was going to the capitol against the permit.

9. When I first saw it

When I first saw it, and each time since, I've thought it was because he lost the word for a moment. He pauses for more than just dramatic effect.

12. He sounded like Jerry Lewis

when he did that.

A slight change from his usual Alan King/Catskills shtick.
