Episode 84 - A Failed Coup
We very quickly established a recurring theme involving the number “84” this week. Semicolon returns to help us discuss the events of the last few days. It starts with both Democrats winning the Georgia Senate runoff late Tuesday night. Midday Wednesday Trump gives a speech to his cult saying they are going to walk down to the capitol and show their strength. Shortly after that the horde storms the capitol building and forces their way in. How was something that has been talked about for so long been allowed to happen? Trump, many hours later, condemns the riot but still says “I love you”. Trump makes one final speech where he finally commits to a peaceful transfer of power. Then gets banned for just about every major social media platform including Twitter. What a wild ride. All within the first week of 2021.
