Fox’s Pete Hegseth on Trump Insurrection: “What Happened, Happened.”
The attack on the United States Capitol recently was a very first in several methods. Naturally, the attack was extraordinary. However the attack on Democracy likewise represented the very first time where nearly all Republican politicians wanted to confess that Donald Trump did something bad.
And while some are prepared to penalize Trump for his actions, numerous others are aiming to overlook the scenario and hope it disappears. This was the tact Pete Hegseth had on Wednesday when he stated of the insurrection, “what happened, happened.”
Hegseth stated throughout Fox News’ The 5, “When you talk to Trump supporters, who I talk to on a regular basis, there is a feeling that for the most part this was a protest that got out of hand, as Jesse talked about. They heard the president speak. He talked about being peaceful and patriotic. There was a lot of frustration on the ground that day. I was there covering it for Fox & Friends. But overwhelmingly what you didn’t see from that crowd or the words from the president, was insurrection or incitement to violence.”
The Fox host continued:
“What happened, happened. We can talk about it and deal with it. But if the left — the left never misses an opportunity, never, to try to use a moment to crush their political opponents. They see this as the moment to do that to Trump and of course the RINOs on the right, I mean there’s not a Republican out there that’s looking to go back to the years of Bush/Cheney, at least those 75 million that supported President Trump.”
