Ugh, my family is Republican, and I agree that Trump was acting foolishly. Even if he somehow had no idea things would turn out the way they did, he should have tried to stop it.
Did you see the video he posted on social media? Basically, 15% of it was telling the rioters to stop, 85% of the video was him complaining about how unfair it was that "fraud" was committed. How does he not realize that it's MUCH more honourable to leave office normally, than to cling to some dumb made up claim? We counted the votes, checked to see if voter-fraud was involved, saw that it was fair, and now it is time to MOVE ON. Sorry for ranting.
