Angry Country. Ted Cruz lies as he gets caught taking a Cancun vacation while Texas freezes. And from Fox News hosts Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer…. crickets, as Trump uses the death of a supporter to continue to spread the big lie about the election he lost.

Trump on what he wishes GOP had done after Nov. 3: "You would've had riots going all over the place if that happened to a Democrat. We don't have the same support, at certain levels of the Republican system," he said. He spoke to Fox by phone from his West Palm Beach golf club.

This is what the Big Lie is all about. Three months after the election, and 61 court decisions later, Trump and his attorneys still refuse to acknowledge that he lost the election. Pathetic.

Worst part of Trump acquittal is how Big Lie lives on. GOP now weaponizing it to introduce wave of new voter suppression laws
If Dems don't pass John Lewis Voting Rights Act & For the People Act next election could be stolen & next coup could succeed https://t.co/kdQY9IT73u

What Texans are suffering through is a failure of deregulation and markets — a neoliberal ideology promoted not just by the fossil-fuel-loving right, but even many environmentally conscious liberals. https://t.co/WV1EOCpTYn
