The reaction to the US Capitol riots demonstrates a clear effort to manipulate the narrative and attack President Trump in his last days in office. Despite being depicted as an insurrection instigated and supported personally by Trump, in an online video Trump ended the riot, asking rioters to go home, saying, "you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order" . Although Trump did ask his supporters to protest at the US Capitol building, Trump specifically did so by asking supporters to go "peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard" , not the language to mount a serious coup. Democrats, on the other hand, have long advocated for their supporters to target congressmen and women, and have tried to abuse the 25th amendment, and again the impeachment process, to again attack Trump during the last days of his presidency.
The invoking of the 25th Amendment would likewise throw fuel onto this fire of American hyper-partisanship, as dysfunctional media and tech companies, and a manipulative democratic party, are twisting democratic norms and American values to attack Trump. Such parties that desire a return to the pre-Trump status quo are now attempting to even block any future Trump presidency, this will only rile up Trump supporters even more and threatens to amplify the situation. Following a year of nationwide riots, many of which were supported by democrats this is 'the pot calling the kettle black' as democrats and the "crooked" media prove Trump right in trying to silence and block him in unprecedented ways.
