Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
This week’s provocative question is focused on something that might be more specific to Americans, but for those of you who live outside of the United States and who have an opinion or perspective on the topic, please feel free to weigh in.
The topic at hand is the House Select Committee Hearings investigation the January 6, 2021 attack by Trump supporters on the U.S. Capitol Building. I’ve been diligently watching the televised hearings this month and, to me, they have been riveting.
These hearings have exposed Trump’s Big Lie about the 2020 presidential election, which was decisively won by Joe Biden, and which Donald Trump has yet to concede, having been stolen from him. They have also proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Trump knows the election wasn’t “stolen” from him even as he continues to this day to publicly claim it was. The hearings have also demonstrated how Trump and a handful of his advisers have attempted by clearly illegal means, to overturn the election results even though they knew there was no legal basis to do so. And they have also made it completely clear that Donald Trump instigated the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6th, and, while watching the whole assault on the Capitol live on TV, Trump, like Nero in Rome, metaphorically fiddled while America burned.
So my multiple questions this week are:
Have you been watching, or at least following the news about, the Select Committee televised hearings?
Do you agree or disagree with my assessment of what has come out of the hearings thus far?
Do you think that Trump and others who took part in the attempt to overturn the election should be criminally charged and incarcerated.
Do you think that they will be criminally charged and incarcerated?
