After the eighth House select committee hearing on the Jan. 6 riots wrapped on Thursday night, we have one simple question for Donald Trump supporters. For those who still view him as a patriot, a leader, a front-runner — or even a viable candidate at all — for the 2024 Republican nomination: Have you seen enough to change your mind?
Did you think Trump was just playing to the crowd when he promised in his speech to the rioters that day to lead them down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol building? Did you understand he was fully serious when it was revealed he had an angry confrontation with his Secret Service detail after they refused to chauffeur him there? Did you raise your eyebrows when an unnamed witness told the committee that Trump had direct knowledge that members of the crowd that day were armed?
