4 hr 31 min agoCNN's John King on new Trump video condemning Capitol violence: "Where was this one week ago?"Analysis by CNN's John King / Written by Leinz ValesMoments after President Trump released a new video Wednesday, denouncing the violence at the US Capitol building last week, CNN's John King said it was a good message, but asked,"Where was that one week ago today?"

Opinion: The GOP has become the party that stands for nothing Arkansas man accused of beating officer with US flagpole Pentagon increasing efforts to stamp out extremism among active-duty troops and veterans

"Where was that one week ago today when thousands of his supporters acting on his words went to the United States Capitol and the leader of the House Republicans, Kevin McCarthy, others were calling him saying, 'Mr. President, deliver a statement, go public, go on camera, tell your people to back down, tell your people to stand down, tell your people to go home.'"

King added that his message to his supporters was a"strongly worded statement" that left little ambiguity, but fell flat when compared to his past comments about the riot."He says in this statement, 'Like all of you I was shocked and deeply saddened by the calamity at the Capitol last week,'" King said."No. He said nothing about it at the moment when people were begging him to stand down. Then he called them patriots and he said he loved them. He's on the record. That's on camera. In his statements. Those are his own words."

King went on to say it was a responsible statement from the President, but reiterated that the sentiment was too late to have an impact."It would have been nice to get it a week ago," King said."It would have been nice to get it after Charlottesville. It would have been nice to get it at other moments where the President has encouraged his supporters. For this President to say it's time to rise above the rancor and find common ground, he has often caused the rancor and disrupted any efforts at common ground. Again, it is a very welcome statement in a vacuum."

Live updates during the transition from the Trump to Biden administrations.

A national day of Silence. Shut it Zip it Silence!...sweet Boot him out. The sooner the better Would be nice if they would focus on people dying from covid and getting vaccines out quicker.

Why are all presidents look like they had a bad paperround🙃🤣 Today is Delay Day 1 of McConnell's intent to dump Senate Impeachment Trial on Schumer! US Constitution is not clear that POTUS can be convicted out of Office! Evidence is clear today that Trump can be convicted by Senate. 5 days before Jan 20 is enough time to hold trial.

Pädo biden Lhuulkk. I.p.o l pop 0 p.o That's what I said exactly yesterday hope they can still do other things that are more important than the impeachment Wait a that his pouty face? Yes! That will never happen trump will triumph over evil... The puppet, cute, except Biden has hair, not a comb over

Someone asked is this the best America has to offer? No President Obama was one of the best America had. Presidential humility with strength, resolve, and an ear for what ALL American people need combined with the fortitude to carry it out is what the country needs. You watch a CNN report on DJT impeachment and you see the outcome they(CNN) already have in mind and want it to play that way in reality, PoorJournalism . POTUS I can’t be the only one observing this. Impeachment2

Well their not and they didn't for the last four years! ...seems he needs to make another WHOLE statement about his FAVORITE brand of LAPTOP!🤔 I wish they will and also depending on what you have in mind by their regular legislative duties while dealing with impeachment . Senile McClain_on_NFL Can Joe Biden carry out his legislative duty and come clean on his corruption and illegal voting scheme that cost America the president they voted for?

Lkk If there’s any trouble Trump should be held fully responsible, however should he wish to concede, plus make a public statement and attend the inauguration as normality’s requires he would then not be held responsible for any violence. Climb down Trump or else DISGUSTING JUST LIKE CNN Weakest, US President ((🙄))

I read some of the post People are threatening Senators that do not vote for impeachment. That's OK? Tell Joe that his fear of Pelosi is hurting any healing he thought he could do. Physician heal thyself.ask Pelosi to step aside first You want to heal by letting the cut get deeper. This is a weak start. You could have stopped this but you didn't have what it takes to stop pelosi's vendetta. This will the first time that on Jan 20 A House Speakers name will be mentioned more than an incoming Presidents

CNNPolitics CNN the overriding image I have is of our ‘leaders’ cowering behind their desks while the brave few held the line. Somebody in this picture looks like he is mad that Jill gave him the vanilla Ensure when he specifically asked for chocolate Now I believe what people are saying about chris_grey2 is true, Mr Chris you are indeed a man of your words, you have changed life’s including mine. Thanks chris_grey2 for your kindness I now have alot to pay off my debt I'll not stop trading with your company platform

if impeached President Trump back even more stronger Nope not at all. God help our country Ye good one playing the victim what hypocrite those stinking democrats are and the biggest instigator, bloody disgusting Pelosi. Omg, I thought it was the Walter puppet. You know the puppets from Las Vegas. 🤣😂😅😂🤣😂😄😃😃Dont trust your party JoeBiden they will also pull the trigger to impeach you soon after you swear your oath as FAKE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. based on mental incapacity to carryon your duties.

A liar and crook Does thàt mean they will have to work a full 5 days rather than their typical 2 1/2 ? Hidin Biden! Biden will be “latching” on to China’s “utter” If he cared about this country he would denounce this lunacy... but he won’t because he’s part of it. His allegiance lies with his prosperity and power. END. sham Shameful Disgraceful absurd cnnsucks TwitterCensorship

Impeach Biden Who is this elderly senior? Silent Genocide in Uganda by Museveni the internet is shutdown on the day of elections ugandaisbleeding Biden is heading to Gitmo!!! Thanks Mr President - elect Joe Biden Hes going to be worst president ever Yep not doing a fricking thing that matters to normal people in the country. We have all come to expect this out of this useless group of privileged rich people. Thanks for taking care of yourselves.

Proof of aliens ! Looks like JoeBiden close no better president jeffdunham じゃあまずは票の確認からいきましょう。 Wow! he looks like one of Jeff Dunham’s puppets! Well Joe you assured us the Democrats can walk and chew gum?! I agree. Don’t let this trial delay my 2K Stimulus Check! có thể chia sẻ, tâm sự, có thể là nữ hoặc nam.

About to trade one piece of shit for another. America 🙌 Perfect I thought Biden was going to bring people together. I don’t believe him. Most people have other worries 🤡 This guy is next An illegitimate old president, look in his eyes, he barely opens them The police & national guard troops should also be armed with indelible ink guns to spray on all the attackers along with their pepper sprays and tear gas. Then the guilty rioters can be identified even days later as the insurgents. Ink that they can't easily remove.

Of course they can, as long as it’s something that helps them out they will get it done. Unless it’s a stimulus package then fuck it right
