But even despite all these controversial topics, he still managed to out-do himself by trying to blame the Capitol Riots on Nancy Pelosi.

Now, the events from January 6th still haunt us to this day.

As a joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden's election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.

And photos showing them looting objects, such as the lectern of U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, quickly started circulating online.

From this, more violence ensued...

And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.

From the get-go, there were calls for Trump to intervene.

The former president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.

He instead issued a series of half-hearted tweets...

Where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was "on our side," and to "remain peaceful."

And, as control was regained in the Capitol and the cleanup began, an impeachment investigation was launched into the former president for the role he played in the riots. He was acquitted yet again for his actions.

It's been an unbelievable past couple of months...

And, as the weeks have trickled by, more and more rioters have been named, shamed, and reprimanded for their actions.

And it was nothing short of harrowing.

A senior aide said of the never-before-seen security footage:

"We will be using footage never seen before that shows a view of the Capitol that is quite extraordinary and a view of the attack that has never been public before. You will see for the first time."

Senators also reacted to the surfaced footage.

Senators on both sides of the aisle were visibly affected by what they saw:

"It was really horrifying what happened. You know, I think the House team really put forth a very strong connecting of the dots. I don't see how you can watch any of this and listen to their presentation and not conclude that Trump bears tremendous responsibility for what happened," Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, told reporters.

Police officers and first responders even lined up to give their testimony's against the frightful events that unfolded.

Captain Carneysha Mendoza told senators what she had endured that day, saying this: "I received chemical burns to my face that still have not healed to this day."

She continued:

"We could have had 10-times the number of people working with us, and I still believe the battle would have been just as devastating," she said, referring to the fact that the National Guard took hours to arrive on the scene to help exhausted officers.

But even despite substantial evidence pointing to Donald Trump inciting this level of violence, in the eyes of the law, he was cleared of all charges.

And now he's got other ideas on who to blame for the dreaded events that day.

He just keeps on digging himself into a hole...

During the Conservative Political Action Conference Trump addressed the topic of the riots by discussing the rally that took place beforehand.

On Sunday, he claimed that he had requested 10,000 National Guard troops to be deployed to Washington after realizing that his pre-rally was going to be bigger than he initially thought, but this so-called "request" was denied by congress leaders, including Nancy Pelosi.

He said that it was rejected because they thought 10,000 troops would be perceived negatively.

And described it as a "big mistake."

He also described that particular rally as a "lovefest."

"The press doesn't like to talk about it, but the real number was much, much bigger. It was tremendous numbers of people, not the Capitol, I'm talking about the rally itself, and it was a lovefest, it was a beautiful thing."

"They took that number, they gave it to people at the Capitol, which is controlled by Pelosi," he continued.

"...And I heard they rejected it because they didn't think it looked good, so you know that was a big mistake."

​He later also said that he hated the fact that there were violence and deaths due to the riots.
