After arsonist Donald Trump incited a riot that resulted in violence and mayhem, the outgoing president promised there would “will be an orderly transition on January 20th” to the Biden administration. However, his statement also said that he disagreed “with the outcome of the election.” Trump promised an orderly transition, but there was no mention of a peaceful transition, and he just had to mention his grievance over the election results that have fueled his supporters into believing his lies. President-elect Joe Biden handily won the popular and electoral vote. That’s a fact.

After the chaos ensued at the Capitol with Trump supporters seizing the building,  Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf issued a statement criticizing “some supporters of the President” for the violence that ensued and called on Trump to “strongly condemn” it, according to CNN’s Daniel Dale, who adds that Trump then promptly “withdrew Wolf’s nomination to be full Secretary” as a result.

Twitter users weighed in.

No one believes this:

Trump apparently refuses to fully condemn the violence that resulted after he urged his supporters to march to the Capitol. The outgoing president is a malignant narcissist that is incapable of accepting responsibility for his own actions. Trump needs to be immediately removed from office by invoking the 25th Amendment. Vice President Mike Pence can take over for the next two weeks to ensure a safe and peaceful transition of power. And when even a thoroughly shitty person such as Chad Wolf is calling Trump out, then we’re in a lot of trouble.
