When they say, "Trump did so many good things ..." they are telling you who they really are.

When they testify against the insurrection but need to say that Trump did anything good for the country they are saying that had he won, they would still be serving him and if he runs again, I will support him and vote for him.
while embracing his agenda to vote for someone like DeSantis.
Remaking the Republican Party image as good guys who reject a lawless, violent man like Trump. They could have rejected him in 2015, but embraced him in order to hold power.
and, in my opinion, many of the Biden votes were *only* because Trump was so loathsome, egotistical, and blatant.
We live in a country where Adolf Hitler would get 45% of the vote.
He left a White House he had no business ever being at in the first place.
And probably pissed in all the corners to mark his territory. Some stains won't come out.
were the good things he had done, all she could come up with was "Well, I liked how he stood up to that Korea guy."
I decided to let it ride. She had the scissors.
It unnerves me every time one of the witnesses says something like that. I can't recall Trump ever doing anything one could call "presidenting". It was one big photo op for him - a four year, 24/7 reality TV show with lots of temper tantrums. Of course, occasionally he took credit for something that had nothing to do with anything he did. He relished the power, but didn't embrace any of the responsibility.
These "many good things" seem to be as invisible as all that compelling evidence of election fraud.
I keep hearing over and over from his supporters that he was destroying his legacy by not stopping the Capitol riot.
He never had a legacy to destroy. All he ever did was lie and tweet and make derogatory comments about others. He and his stupid family made our country look like fools across the world stage (pushing other world leaders aside physically so he could steal the limelight, Ivanka insinuating herself into discussions she couldn't understand even if she tried, Jared being assigned a gazillion roles/titles, none of which he was qualified for or accomplished anything).
Well, after this, he will certainly have a legacy, but it won't be one he'll want to brag about. And hopefully his grifting family will disappear from our lives. I'm sick to death of hearing about the whole lot of them.
I've seen that cited as one great thing he did. I never understood why that was so important to some people or how it benefits Americans.
Three who don't deserve the seat at all.
Legacy as they use the term is meant to be a positive quality. For him, it will always be a negative legacy. The history books will not be kind. His so-called legacy will be even worse than Nixon's, and Nixon's is bad enough.
because they will vote--and are already voting-- to turn back the clock to the era of straight white patriarchy.
The country is never going back to that imaginary time when people like his supporters would be at the top of the heap. There may be the occasional set back, but it'll never take hold just because they're the loudest voices we hear.
It let's me know they aren't worth much of my time if I have to interact with them for some reason.

is anything other than a GOP stooge..four years of Trumps vengeful depravity, his malignant disregard for 300,000 covid deaths, his stupidly, narcissism, overt racism/ethnic hate, mugging with despots and monsters, his craven greed, plotting a coup, fomenting an insurrection
all just swell, but the mob determined to Hang Mike Pence
They all supported him and were happy to work for a psycho fascist who murdered over 1 million people and more.
is them saying that if the coup had been successful, theyd still be working right alongside him.
It makes it more difficult to portray them as "Trump Haters" with an agenda to bring him down.
regarding the validity of their testimony.
The other value is only for Republicans. It lets them reject Trump, keep his agenda, and rebrand themselves as rational instead of as lunatics.
with the phrase, "for example?" And when the respondent stutters for explanation, the Jan 6 Committee member(s) simply ask them to list all those "good things" tRump supposedly did.
