Days after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton claimed, with zero evidence, that the convoy of right-wing militants headed to the border will be “set-up” by the Biden Administration just like the insurrections on January 6th, former president Donald Trump came to his defense on social media.
Trump was likely responding to what Paxton said, in part: “…As I think we talked about earlier, creates, the risk of a January Sixth, where they use that as an excuse to then put a bunch of people in jail and now it’s another insurrection or whatever they want to call it. They probably have a new word for it. But it’s all a set-up.”
In response, American Bridge 21st Century spokesperson Philip Shulman amended his previous statement:
“I hope Ken Paxton and Donald Trump get a BOGO deal on adult diapers because I’m not sure there are bigger babies when it comes to respecting the rule of law and prosecuting those who break it.”
Paxton, who has been engulfed in scandal for years, is a renowned replacement theorist and antisemite, and who most recently made waves by trying to force a pregnant women with a non-viable fetus to carry to term, has been citing the same debunked legal theory South Carolina used to secede from the United States in 1860.
