A side issue, but so telling. Of all the images and noise from Wednesday, I can’t get it out of my head that Trump told the crowd he was going to join them on their walk up to the Capitol and then he just left.

Of course he did. He wouldn't shake their hands, let alone walk with them or talk with them. (They're the only ones that don't know that.)
