Photo Record Of Nixon’s Last Lunch Before Leaving White House Against His Will Shows There Was No Ketchup In Sight

The bar is so low you could trip over it.

There were certainly a lot of bombshells to come out of former Meadows White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s surprise, under oath testimony before the House Select Committee yesterday afternoon.

Throughout the  hearing, we heard damning recollections of Donald Trump’s absolutely horrifying behavior on January 6th, 2021 — ranging from the fact that he and his Chief of Staff Mark Meadows knew full and well that many of his supporters at his infamous Stop The Steal rally were armed to the gills with deadly weapons and body armor, to the unhinged and downright violent reaction Trump had upon learning that he would not be allowed to go to the Capitol with his raging, unhinged mob, where they would go on to violently siege the government building with Congress inside.

And that’s honestly just the highlights.

In fact, Committee Vice-Chair Liz Cheney went so far as to close yesterday’s surprise hearing with brutal evidence that Donald Trump’s own allies have literally been tampering with witnesses, as the unhinged, one-term, twice-impeached former president’s fear and desperation grow out of control.

But one of the most eye-opening revelations to come out of Ms. Hutchinson’s testimony was the extent of Donald Trump’s uncontrollable rage. For instance, when the former Trump WH aide said, “There was ketchup dripping down the wall, and there was a shattered porcelain plate on the floor,” after the then-president allegedly threw his lunch at the wall following an Associated Press interview with his Attorney General, Bill Barr.

The testimony has brought a lot of people out of the woodwork with their own thoughts and analyses on the matter, including one presidential historian who took to Twitter with a rather telling photo that seemingly goes to show that even the nation’s formerly worst president, Richard Nixon, had more poise and maturity than Donald Trump:

I don’t know about you, but I don’t see a drop of ketchup in sight.

The bar is officially below Nixon, folks.
