Even after nearly 1,000 Capitol rioters were charged with crimes, Donald Trump this week hailed them as “great patriots” and their prison sentences as “a disgrace.”

But he also insisted that “virtually nothing happened” during the Jan. 6, 2021 riot in the US Capitol, so apparently it wasn’t a big deal.

The former president was asked on Friday’s far-right cable show Real America’s Voice to say a few words to lift the spirits of “political prisoners” behind bars in the “Gulag.”

“I think it’s a shame what happened,” Trump replied. “So many of these people are great patriots and what they’ve been through. Then you look at Antifa and BLM [Black Lives Matter]. Look at what happened there, what they’ve been doing in all sorts of places for the last… two years, where they’ve been burning cities.”

However, no cities were burned by Black Lives Matter or Antifa activists.

Trump also insisted the riot was not “fatal” — “no one died” at the scene, except for the “wonderful” Ashli ​​Babbitt, he added. A police officer fatally shot the Trump supporter as she attempted to climb through a smashed window in the Capitol amid a mob trying to get to the legislature.

So, according to Trump, “virtually nothing happened” that day.

According to Justice Department records, 950 defendants involved in the 2021 storming of the Capitol have been charged with crimes ranging from trespassing and destruction to stealing Capitol property to assault, carrying a deadly or dangerous weapon and a seditious conspiracy rich. In addition, about 140 police officers were injured while defending the building and the lawmakers within.

Trump even greeted the rioters on the day of the violence, telling them in a video address, “We love you, you are very special,” when he finally asked them to leave the Capitol. “I know your pain,” he said.

Trump said last September that he would “seriously consider” a “full pardon — with an apology” for the January 6 indictees when he becomes president again. He also claimed at the time to support some of them “financially” and solicited contributions.
