The FBI says it thwarted what it described as a plot to violently overthrow the government and kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
Donald Trump has verbally attacked Michigan's governor Gretchen Whitmer, despite warnings about the effect his words can have.
During a rally in the state, Mr Trump called on Ms Whitmer, a Democrat, to axe the remaining restrictions aimed at limiting the spread of the coronavirus.
He called her "dishonest" and joked about an extremist plot recently uncovered by the FBI to kidnap her, saying: "Hopefully you'll be sending her packing pretty soon".
His words prompted the crowd to chant: "Lock her up!"
I watched "The Trump Show" on BBC2 last night (I think part 3 is showing tonight), laughable stuff about the inauguration crowds.
Well worth checking it out. You forget what a clusterf*ck those opening months were with everything that has happened since.
I'm three chapters in.Just finished reading Rage by Bob Woodward
An amazing portrait of Trump, neurotic, self-obsessed and out of his depth. His own security advisors over and over again came to the conclusion that he was a security risk to the US.
Woodward describes Trump talking tough in public, but backing down in a rather pathetic manner to Putin, Xi and Kim.
I was left with the impression that Trump will talk tough and tweet tough about not accepting the result of the election, but deep down he doesn't have the balls, and couldn't count on the support of the Republicans in Senate
Mad as a box of frogs!Anyone who can promote Trump as the definition of truth needs help. He also is making out the USA is in a mess now - how is that Biden’s fault who has been presiding over the last 4 years?
