Shortly before impeached President Donald Trump would take the stage at a March to Save America rally and light the fuse belonging to a throng of volatile supporters last Wednesday, his son, Donald Trump Jr. was happily taking taking video of the family dancing and celebrating backstage.
To say the video is disturbing is an understatement. Taking place in a nearby tent, Trump can be seen gloating, while surveying his massive crowd (he finally got it) on large monitors.
Caught on camera are President Trump, Eric Trump, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and Don Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, dancing to Gloria, as well as Trump Jr.
Guilfoyle tells the Trump MAGA crowd watching to “fight,” while Don Jr. praises Meadows as “an actual fighter, a real fighter.”

During the speech, which he swore he “would never concede,” Trump told supporters to “walk down to the Capitol,” promising them he would be by their sides. (He was not.)
“We are going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women,” Trump told them. Telegraphing who they should target, he added, “and we are probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them — because you will never take back our country with weakness.”
“We will never give up. We will never concede. It will never happen. You don’t concede when there’s death involved. Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore.
After going back on his promise to march with them (anyone really surprised?), Trump and family returned to their limos and left for the safe confines of the White House.
During the insurrection, in which five people died and countless injured, Trump Jr. would post a tweet, claiming that it’s Democrats, not Republicans, who were causing the violence.
There are now calls for either the immediate resignation of Donald Trump or he could face articles of impeachment which is being presented in the House of Representatives tomorrow. CNN reports that Vice President Mike Pence, who has not spoken to the President since the horrific event, has not ruled out invoking the 25th amendment.
If impeached for a second time, it would mark the first time in American history that a president was impeached twice.
