Fox News Host Calls 1/6 Commission Hearing 'an Assault on 75 Million' Trump Voters

Fox News Host Calls 1/6 Commission Hearing 'an Assault on 75 Million' Trump Voters
Fox News

On Tuesday, the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Riots held its first hearing, where Capitol and D.C. Metro police officers delivered harrowing testimony on their experiences defending the Capitol from a mob of pro-Trump extremists.

The officers described being overtaken by the mob, with rioters forcibly taking their weapons, beating them, and inundating them with racial slurs and shouts of "Traitors!"

The officers blamed former President Donald Trump for sparking the calamity that day—the culmination of his months-long smear campaign against the validity of the 2020 election.

They also described the continued physical and mental toll the terror of the riots has imposed on Capitol and D.C. police officers at the Capitol that day, who described brain injuries, lacerations, and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

The conservative Fox News network, which currently faces multiple lawsuits for amplifying the same lies that led Trump supporters to storm the Capitol, was predictably indignant at the testimony.

Right-wing Fox host Tammy Bruce had a stunning characterization for the hearing.

Watch below.

Bruce said in an interview with Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana:

"Clearly today was an assault on 75 million Americans, I think it was meant to be."

Bruce went on to absurdly claim that Trump's supporters make up half of the American population, and that an investigation into the Capitol Riots is somehow anti-democratic.

People weren't buying Bruce's partisan delusions.

They were exhausted by the mental gymnastics.

Bruce hasn't addressed the controversy.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
