Former President Donald J. Trump kicked off a campaign rally in Houston on Thursday with an emotional tribute to the men and women unfairly locked up for participating in the events of January 6th at the US Capitol.
Trump made his grand entrance to the song “Justice For All,” a special project released in March that featured the voices of inmates, dubbed the “J6 Prison Choir.” The prisoners sang the national anthem from jail as Trump saluted on stage.
“Well, thank you very much, and you know what that was,” Trump addressed the crowd after the music ended. “I call them the ‘J-6 hostages,’ not prisoners. I call them the hostages, what’s happened. And you know, it’s a shame.”
That’s going to make some liberals apoplectic!
Trump went on to explain the history of the song to his supporters.
“When that came out, it went to the number one song. It was beating everybody. It beat Taylor Swift. It beat Miley Cyrus, who is number one and two. They were number one. And two, we knocked them off for a long time,” he said.
“That song was out there for a long time. Then, of course, they had a problem with the Internet, Right? You know, And so all of a sudden they said, oh, there’s a problem, we’ll have to take it off. And we raised hell. And it went back on,” he concluded.
