8. This is Republican Jesus we're talking about here.

He says smack the hell out of 'em. Oh wait, that was Trump.

3. Ho hum.

Expected ... whataboutism and decontextualization.
An appeal to anger and victimization.

The elephant in the room that the Trump lawyers cannot confront and have to talk around, of course, is that Trump was the nominee of the Republican Party and the president (who took an oath to defend the Constitution) with wholly different duties and responsibilities than anyone else in the nation.

5. It's peak whataboutism.

"They did it too, so what are they complaining about?"

Strangely, I never saw Biden-flag-waving BLM protesters invading a government building carrying flexcuffs so they could kidnap or kill elected officials.

They are also saying "we don't see anything"

9. Yes--scattered local police brutality protests gone awry versus the POTUS instructing a mob

to enter the Capitol to scare US lawmakers into overturning an election. DON'T U SEE HOW THEY'RE EQUAL??!?!

12. Yea, and if other leaders say to fight for civil rights or justice or equality, that's the same as

assembling a mob, wearing riot gear using bear spray, to physically impede in stopping the peaceful change in a democratically elected government by braking into the National's Capital building, killing one Capital policeman maiming 140 more, causing the death of fellow rioters , threatening to kill the members of the party that certifiable won carrying the LOSER'S flag.

Trump is again, not worthy of any governmental office! Well maybe in an authoritarian government, but not here!
