A lot of bullshit in this Fox propaganda piece:
Former President Trump told Fox News late Sunday that he expressed concern over the crowd size near the Capitol days before last month's deadly riots and personally requested 10,000 National Guard troops be deployed in response.
Trump told "The Next Revolution With Steve Hilton" that his team alerted the Department of Defense days before the rally that crowds might be larger than anticipated and 10,000 national guardsmen should be ready to deploy. He said that -- from what he understands -- the warning was passed along to leaders at the Capitol, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- and he heard that the request was rejected because these leaders did not like the optics of 10,000 troops at the Capitol.
"So, you know, that was a big mistake," he said.
Pelosi’s office and the Defense Department did not immediately respond to an email inquiry from Fox News. Trump told Steve Hilton, the show’s host, that he "hated" to see what unfolded on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol.
Much of what led to the riot at the Capitol remains a mystery.
Wanted 10,000 guardsmen but Pelosi stopped it. Prove it!
The the big one.... "Much of what led to the riot at the Capitol remains a mystery."
There is no fucking mystery.
- Trump, conservative media, and the Rs pushed the lie that the election was stolen.
- Trump asked supporters to come to the rally on that day.
- Trump and other speakers wound up the crowd with more talk about the stolen election.
- Trump told them to go to the capital.
Still, the Fox Cult will be swearing it's true by the end of the week.
America will not survive Fox News.
UPDATE: Google News chose to put this BS in the second section from the top of the page.
