Trump’s decision to ditch his planned press conference in Florida means Americans will be spared a shrieking analysis from Joe Biden and his mainstream media propagandists.
If it had gone ahead, Biden would have marked what he calls “one of the darkest days” in U.S. history, while Trump, just a few hours later, was expected to comment on the day as surely one of the darkest, but for completely different reasons.
In a statement announcing the demise of his press conference, Trump again referenced the “Crime of the Century.”
“In light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday…” the Former President began.

Political wounds obviously remained unhealed one year later as Democrats and liberal media insist on promoting out-and-proud propaganda campaigns instead of telling the truth about what happened on that day.
Conversely, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will speak on Thursday from inside the Capitol’s Statuary Hall, the setting during the unrest of Jan. 6 last year.
Biden has often warned during his first year in the White House of an “existential” threat to political freedoms that until now most Americans took for granted.
His speech is set to take that warning to a new level.
“He’ll speak to the historical significance of Jan. 6, what it means for the country one year later,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
Congress will later hold a prayer vigil.
Meanwhile, a House Select committee continues their hunt to find any semblance of evidence that may possibly connect Donald Trump – or any of his associates – with the events leading up to the Jan. 6 protest.
Trump critics continue to parrot mistruths about the Former President’s role in the rioting with unproven claims. Trump and supporters counter that the fraud was widespread, and that participants in the siege were defending the democratic process against an existential threat.
Jan. 6 marks the day that Americans find themselves in the middle of a political tug of war, a war against good versus evil.
