The Lincoln Project released a video today showing how Donald Trump’s media enablers — and even his family — bailed on him on January 6th just when he needed them most. When the Capitol was under siege, Donald Trump Jr. and multiple Fox News personalities desperately reached out to Mark Meadows to get Trump to call off his supporters. They all knew the attack was an act of sabotage and sedition.

“This is why FOX News is afraid to show the hearings live,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of the Lincoln Project. “Fox has to distract and deflect; if they dared to show the hearings, their viewers would learn the awful truth; the network’s hosts knew Trump was responsible and that the Big Lie was always going to lead to violence. They need their audience numb, dumb, and distracted by phony scare stories while they undermine our democratic institutions and march their ULTRA-MAGA followers down the path to autocracy.”

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.
