Shermichael Singleton warns Trump to stop talking on January 6

Conservative contributor to CNN Shermichael Singleton warned Donald Trump that his continued rhetorical support for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot could hurt him in the November general election during a Monday morning online appearance.

During a rally in Nevada over the weekend, Trump called rioters who took part in the attack on the Capitol “J6 warriors” and “victims of what happened,” while suggesting he might pardon people convicted or suspected of committing crimes during the riot.

“When Donald Trump calls the people who attacked the Capitol on January 6 – the Capitol, I mean we’re sitting in front of it – warriors, doesn’t there be a part of you that flinches?” CNN Jim Acosta Singleton asked after playing clips of Trump at the rally.

“So strategically, and Megan made a really good point, this is, I think, part of the problem with the Trump campaign,” Singleton responded.

He continued:

And I know for a fact that some members of the campaign would prefer the former president to stick to his established issues, because IF you look at some of the polls, he’s doing quite well on some issues. These types of images may make some people who are hesitant about President Biden say, “You know what? I’ll just stay at home. I am

is going to withdraw completely,” which actually benefits the former president. Those people who are going to see these things constantly, and if the Biden campaign continues to run ads on social media, radio ads, TV ads, it’s going to kind of remind people, ‘You know what? I just don’t think I want to bother with another four years of chaos” – that’s not good for the former president. So if I was advising him, I would advise sticking to specific issues. People don’t want to be reminded of chaos! It turns them off, Jim.
