Insurrectionist who waved Confederate flag in Capitol allowed to take family road trip before trial

1 min read

Now that we’ve entered the “none of that really happened” phase of Donald Trump’s Bumblefuck Putsch, I guess indelible images like—oh, I don’t know—a fucking insurrectionist waving his Traitor Pride flag in the halls of the U.S. Capitol can scurry on down the memory hole, with all the other outrages from Trump’s truncated tenure.

And we’re seeing once again how being a white insurrectionist means never having to say you’re sorry—unless you spill your blended margarita on another seditious white person while on vacay.

The dude who hosted what may be the most infuriating photo op during the events of Jan. 6—the brandishing of a flagpole with an ugly racist hate symbol, a flag that never made it to the Capitol during the war of its origin—is facing both justice and a little R&R, courtesy of our very understanding criminal justice system.
