York Times Magazine’s Nikole Hannah-Jones had some shocking things to say about what she says needs to happen to Trump supporters after the election.

“There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed. It’s as if they are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult, and have to be deprogrammed,” Robinson said on MSNBC Tuesday. “Do you have any idea how we start that process?” he asked Hannah-Jones

“There has to be consequences. And then once you get those consequences … people have to take a second look at their actions, and they have to be afraid to do the types of violence that we saw last week,” Hannah-Jones suggested.

“What has long been the case in this country, is that we have wanted to quickly move on to reconciliation. We’ve always been afraid that if you actually punish those kind of white nationalist elements in our society, it will only make things worse. But, in fact, what history shows is not reacting, not forcing accountability, only emboldens those people and those movements.”

Popular Podcast host Dave Rubin spoke about a Forbs magazine op-ed that said no one should hire staff who had worked on the Trump Whitehouse team.

“Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie,” wrote Lane. “We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet. Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away.”

Chuck Schumer made a ridiculous claim after January the 6th that the storming of Congress was actually just like the Japanise attack on pearl harbor during the second world war.

He said:

“President Franklin Roosevelt set a day aside that will live in infamy,” Schumer said. “Unfortunately, we can now add January 6, 2021, to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy.”

Chuck Schumer added to his speech:

“These images were projected for the world. Foreign embassies cabled their home capitals to report the harrowing scenes at the very heart of our democracy. This will be a stain on our country not so easily washed away – the final, terrible, indelible legacy of the 45th president of the United States, undoubtedly our worst.”
