(AlterNet)   "TFG's not a little guy. And the space to actually be able to lunge towards the wheel is not that big. I don't mean to sound disparaging, but just his girth would prevent him from actually getting to the steering wheel"   (alternet.org) divider line

It is known that TFG's hands are too small to take the wheel much less choke out a SS guy. Whee! It takes two hands to handle a whopper.

The frightening part is that such bulls hit hearsay is seriously endorsed by the MSM. It has been days since any rational exam of what was said was questioned. Further fright that even questioning the bulls hit is condemned as partisan stain.

Maybe, just maybe, this cult politics thing is gonna get out of hand.

I'll take her word for it until the other side is willing to testify without pleading 5ths.

Dunno. He looks in pretty good shape to me.

When was the last time TFG could "lunge"?
1980?

Well, if he's going down a ramp and stumbles, it kinda looks like a lunge...

There has gotta be a tweet where he tells us he has the greatest wingspan.

I'm shocked he hasn't already truthed that if he had actually tried to grab the wheel there is no way the detail could have prevented it, and there would never have been any attempted grab at a throat.  He would have chocked a biatch out.

Imagine my shock and awe to learn that "TFG" is not for The Fat guy.

A Ben Garrison cartoon would show him single-handedly disabling the SS agents with his hands while he drives with his feet.

A Jon McNaughton painting would show Jesus driving the limo to the Capitol while Trump used his powers to eliminate inflation and lower gas prices to $0.10/gal.

If you can walk on two feet you can lunge at anything, he wasn't accused of attempting the triple jump.

My then 87 year old dad went into a rage shortly after his surgery for his broken femur, walkered himself across the room and lunged at his racist wife.  They both had elder rage, it was an ugly time.

What I'm saying is that it might have been a sad, pathetic, feeble lunge on Trumpypants's part, but all the rage, ill will and intention would still have been there.

/Dad and and his wife have been separated, and everyone is safe now.
 
2022-06-30 9:43:51 AM  
The fact that he couldn't succeed doesn't mean he didn't try.

Well, now that his own security detail has called him fat, I expect him to declare he never knew them and that he drove himself back to the White House after the rally.

THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HIS MOMENT!
His people were waiting for him!

Of course he lunged.

Set up a prime time hearing for the Jan 6th committee and let him tell his side under oath.  He'll control the narrative post-incriminations and his MAGA crowd will find an extra $20 from the SS checks to help his defend freedoms.
 
2022-06-30 10:05:34 AM  
None of that would stop him from trying.  Just think of Trump as a bratty child.  In that context, everything he does makes sense.
 
2022-06-30 10:05:59 AM  
Did he try to overthrow the duly elected president?  Did he jam the Supreme Court full of partisan hacks?  Did he throw out treaties and destabilize the world order?  Did he suck up to dictators?  Did he hire his unqualified family members who traded government secrets for secret deals?  Did he disband pandemic readiness teams so a million people died?
I truly don't give the tiniest fark whether he tried to grab the farking wheel.
 
2022-06-30 10:06:19 AM  
It's a Suburban, one of the most absurdly spacious SUVs you can buy. It's made for great big fat people, and a cornered animal can perform some impressive physical feats.
 
2022-06-30 10:06:25 AM  
I call bullshiat.

TFG is a rager with no self control. Assholes like that, even fat, old and "girthy" can explode and move very fast in a sudden fit of anger.

We're getting bogged down in a stupid anecdote. The main issue to me is that he wanted that crowd to be armed. He knew they weren't there to hurt them, and he was fine with them hurting the the people they were there to hurt, including the vice president, the speaker of the house, and dozens of police officers.

Just because he was too fat to pull it off doesn't mean that there wasn't an attempt.

*blink*
*blink*

I'm 6'4, and trying to drop from 300lbs (down to 290 so far. Hold your applause 'til the end, please), so not as "mobile" as our svelte former President.

I can reach the steering wheel from the backseat of a car or SUV, easily, and this is the farking Beast - you can comfortably have a damn dinner party in there.

Also, former WH Photographer Pete Souza says this guy's full of crap (Insta link so I couldn't copy the pic) - that's a pic taken from the President's seat in the (backup) Beast, showing exactly how accessible the steering wheel is from there.

// I do have longer-than-expected arms - if your wingspan is "supposed to be" roughly equivalent to height, I've got an extra 4" or so

Lunging for something does not mean reaching it and grasping it or controlling it.
 
2022-06-30 10:11:27 AM  
I dgaf if it actually happened or not.

She relayed a story told to her.  If the story is false, that is not on her.

LIZ CHENEY: And was Mr. Engel in the room as Mr. Ornato told you this story?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: He was.

LIZ CHENEY: Did Mr. Engel correct or disagree with any part of this story from Mr. Ornato?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: Mr. Engel did not correct or disagree with any part of the story.

LIZ CHENEY: Did Mr. Engel or Mr. Ornato ever after that tell you that what Mr. Ornato had just said was untrue?

CASSIDY HUTCHINSON: Neither Mr. Ornato nor Mr. Engel told me ever that it was untrue.

LIZ CHENEY: And despite this altercation, this physical altercation during the ride back to the White House, President Trump still demanded to go to the Capitol. Here's what Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary at the time, wrote in her personal notes and told the committee about President Trump's desire to go to the Capitol after returning to the White House. [Begin videotape]


TFG wanted to go back to lead the mob into the Capitol to stop the counting of electoral votes.  It was premeditated, it was a conspiracy and that's the whole farking point.

And lastly, if you go back and read her testimony, her and Ornato seem to be pretty chummy, at least in a professional way, as they were in contact with each other often in the days leading up to and especially on Jan 6.  No reason for her to lie about what she heard said that day after arriving back to the WH.
 
2022-06-30 10:11:31 AM  
A fat guy who feels like he's fighting for his life can lunge pretty effectively.
 
2022-06-30 10:11:51 AM  
I understand why this sensational story is dominating the headlines, stupid as it is.

But still, Jesus Christ. Can the press maybe mention under the fold that his intention was to lead an armed mob to storm the freaking Capitol? That seems slightly more important.
 
2022-06-30 10:11:57 AM  
I mean, maybe he forced himself into that space and got stuck and that's why it took 4 minutes before they went anywhere

As someone who went from 280 to 198, I will not hold my applause. Good job!
 
2022-06-30 10:12:26 AM  
So even if the story itself is not true, somebody told someone that story. They might have been hyperbolic. But she definitely heard that story story. I love that they now have to refute it with all this evidence and it will force twe'll force them to come in and tell the truth. This stupid little story
 
2022-06-30 10:12:46 AM  
And all the right-wing attempts to scream over the discussion was foiled when the Secret Service guys said 'yeah, Trump couldn't do that, he's way too fat.'

LOL.

Now that the USSS guys are going all B'rer Rabbit on TFG, we need Cheney saying they don't expect him to publicly testify because he's too weak and enfeebled to speak effectively. Just keep tightening the screws from there.
 
2022-06-30 10:14:32 AM  
I have no problem believing he throws epic tantrums, but he is so low-energy, so pathetic (golf carts, cannot walk down an incline) I don't know that he has the energy to do much more than waddle around, point, scream, and cause a little commotion. "Lunging" isn't in his repertoire, he may have leaned towards, fallen over towards, or something similar...but remember this is a pussy who cannot even fire people to their face and has other people do it.

I am not doubting Cassidy, or what Cassidy heard, and the SS guy's loyalty to TFG makes him less than credible...I am interested in seeing the receipts.
 
2022-06-30 10:15:08 AM  
The people who could most believe he was fit and capable enough to lunge through a small space with hands big enough to choke someone will never believe it. The right wing Trump Rule 34 types who have fetishized this fat piece of human wreckage as some kind of fit and towering conqueror who stands on tanks with ARs and shiat like that. They'll never accept it

Anyone with any clue knows this fat bastard may have tried to attempt these things but couldn't have.
