Trump declares Jan 6 protestors were ‘smart’ to be angry over ‘rigged election’ in new doc

The Discovery+ streaming platform is running a riveting documentary by Alex Holder called “Unprecedented” where former President Trump commented that although it was a “sad day,” protesters were “smart” to be angry over the “rigged election.”

Trump has spoken little about that day and the events surrounding Jan. 6th but he seems to be candid in the documentary that premiered Sunday night. It’s hard to tell just how many Americans tuned in for the premier but it is likely that Discovery+ saw an increase in subscribers over it.

“Well, it was a sad day, but it was a day where there was great anger in our country,” Trump remarked in one featured clip from the third episode, “The Kindling.” “People went to Washington primarily because they were angry with an election that they think was rigged.”

“Unprecedented” is a three-part docuseries by British filmmaker Alex Holder. It features new interviews with Trump and his children concerning Jan. 6th. It also showcases video from the president’s rally on the Ellipse just before the protest at the Capitol. The documentary gives a sharper focus to events already surrounding events of that day.

The former president still contends that there was fraud in the 2020 presidential election and millions of Americans agree with him. The left has done yeoman’s work in trying to convince voters that it was an attempt to overturn the election when there is still no credible evidence that Trump intended that at all. The anger of protesters was one born of highly suspicious results that occurred after numerous events that appeared to show fraud took place.

“A very small portion, as you know, went down to the Capitol, and then a very small portion of them went in. But I will tell you, they were angry from the standpoint of what happened in the election. And because they’re smart and they see and they saw what happened. And I believe that that was a big part of what happened on January 6th,” Trump asserted.

In what looks to be a later interview at Trump’s residence, the filmmaker asked the former president what he had learned from the 2020 election.

“I think I learned you have to be very untrusting,” he admitted. “I thought it would be a straight-up election and it wasn’t.”

The documentary reveals the seemingly unbreakable bond the former president and his children have with supporters.

According to the leftist LA Times, “In one scene, an older man chokes up as he tells the former president’s daughter, Tiffany Trump, he loves her father because of his family values. In another scene, a woman who shows up hours early for one of Trump’s final 2020 rallies says she ‘can’t get a boyfriend because I love him so much,’ and referred to Biden as ‘Joe Bin Laden… because he’s a terrorist.’ And an owner of a Georgia pizzeria said he was star-struck in meeting Ivanka Trump, who popped by during the 2020 campaign: ‘I felt like I was meeting a princess.'”

“It’s a shame what Twitter did, and what Facebook did,” Trump commented to Holder concerning the social media platforms and how he was abused by them according to Variety. “That’s what they do. These people are thugs. They allow other people to be on who are horrific people. I’m not a horrific person. I have a big voice. I have a voice that had hundreds of millions of people listening.”

As for whether Trump will run for the presidency in 2024, that door is wide open.

“We have a tremendous base,” Trump enthusiastically remarked. “Every poll says I gotta run, I gotta run. But I’ll be making a decision in the not-too-distant future, and stay tuned.”

The former president’s son, Eric Trump, made it crystal clear that Americans haven’t seen the last of the former president or his family.

“Do I think politics is over for this family?” he muses. “No, I can assure you politics is not over for this family in some way shape, or form. I think my father will continue to be probably the most pivotal force in Republican party history.”
