Daniel Dale, a fact check reporter for CNN, debunked one of Donald Trump’s most recent absurd claims in detail on Thursday, labeling it “utterly absurd nonsense” and “irrational.”
Earlier in the day, Trump made a fraudulent assertion to reporters that the insurrection and subsequent assault of the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 were instigated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
“That is an insane, beyond-a-reasonable doubt, false statement.” “That is wholly irrational,” Dale remarked.

“This was a mob of pro-Trump supporters that Trump himself invited to town and encouraged to be wild.” Nancy Pelosi attempted to assemble National Guard forces in an effort to defend the Capitol. “Absolutely insane nonsense,” he further claimed of Trump’s remark.
Trump’s claim that “no guns” were present was also refuted by Dale.
Dale observed, “In fact, firearms were present.” The precise quantity of firearms present at the location may remain undisclosed, as the majority of the protestors were released without apprehension that day, while certain individuals were apprehended armed.
Among those convicted of carrying firearms that day were several individuals identified by Dale. “This notion that it was empty that day has taken root in certain right-wing circles, fueled by Trump,” he continued. “This is an entirely false belief.”
