    It shouldn't affect them, no. The investigations going on by NY State AG and the Manhattan DA's office are all regarding past actions.

    Exactly. This is a man-child trying to placate their parent after they have been caught stealing from the cookie jar (and then burning it to the ground). Contrition like this, after the punishment, is yet another sign of Trump's complete inability to acknowledge his wrongful (deplorable) acts.

    Keep him banned on Twitter after this apology and watch him walk it back. ‘I was never really sorry anyway!’

    Sounds more like Trump trying to save his ass from impeachment...

    You need to call a psychic and a numerologist... QAnon knows what he really said... how are we supposed to unite as a nation, when we don’t follow the logic of the other side?

    The man has moments, the tell that it's him is the "I call on ALL Americans..." bit. We all know who's responsible, but it's up to everyone to settle down. No, I don't think so. Easing up on the people who just attempted a fucking coup is the last thing I'm going to do.

    Because that's what this message really says to those people. "If you're listening, I'm telling everyone else to chill the fuck out on your asses, because I don't think so badly of you in specific, it's everyone else's job to ease up."

    Now he condemns the violence. Too little, too late. Wonder if his minions feels betrayed.

    “Donald Trump belongs in jail.”

    Ex-FBI Director @Comey says while he “obviously believes” the president should be in jail, he doesn’t think “pursuing that is in the best interests of the American people”, adding Joe Biden should "consider" pardoning Donald Trump

    Only to save his ass legally. Trust me his lawyers are scaring the shit out him with criminal prosecution.

    Upon winning the election 4 years ago, he couldn't stop talking about setting records. He's uncharacteristically quiet now.

    Capitol police need to start treating them as law enforcement would treat anyone normally trying to circumvent a metal detector at a secure location.

    Seriously, until we see someone like Mo Brooks get bodied and detained by a Capitol police officer, I don't think this is gonna change.

    He’s got a new record. Elected once, impeached twice. Can’t stop winning.

    Parler is down, but ParlerTakes on Twitter has been scraping some choice messages from other services. This one in particular tells me at least some aren't taking it well.

    He did 95% of his ranting on Twitter. I doubt he's being quiet. He just lost access to his favorite platform for wild, lunatic ravings.

    Trump kicked off Snapchat.

    Man, social media really wants to 100% this. They already completed the Twitter main quest, now they're going back for sidequests Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, YouTube, Snapchat etc. Any second now we'll see a trophy pop up.

    So, according to one news report I read, there are some on the far-right claiming Trump's video is actually a deepfake.
