Protestors and rioters are now claiming that Trump made them do it.

These rugged individuals were led like sheep. It is not their fault. They can not be blamed. They are victims of a President who would pardon a bunch of financial criminals (especially bribery and other fraud scams) but would not pardon them.

Not all Trump supporters were Republicans prior to Trump becoming the president. They're unlikely to remain Republican without Trump present. Their investment in being Republican is about the Trump association and not anything to do with traditional Republicanism.  Not that the clowns in DC have concerned themselves with traditional Republicanism since a brief period in the 90's

We'll see how well that defense works in a courtroom. 

But, they kinda do have a point.   They WERE led around like a bunch of sheep.  They let themselves be led.  Baaaaaaaaaaa.
