Expressing his displeasure at his successor's decision-making, former President Donald Trump quoted from a glam metal anthem. Standing before a friendly crowd in Florence, Arizona, the former president struck a defiant tone, revving up the crowd, voicing his refusal to capitulate to the Biden administration "wreaking havoc on our economy, going mandate-crazy, and running neighborhoods ... running roughshod all over this country." "What they're doing is incredible: They've taken away their dignity, they've taken away their liberties, and I say enough is enough, and we are not going to take it anymore," he declared, quoting a Twisted Sister song to roaring approval from the audience Saturday evening.

"We're done with the mandates. ... The mandates are a disaster for a country," he proclaimed, arguing vaccine requirements are "just absolutely decimating our economy." Trump went on to decry the jail cell conditions of Jan. 6 prisoners as "an unprecedented assault on American civil rights and liberties," arguing the accused rioters are being overzealously persecuted as "political prisoners."

The showers are disgusting. the bathrooms are horrible, and people are being forced to live like that," he stated. "Let them use their lawyers. Let them go out and defend themselves, and if we think they're innocent, we should help them defend themselves." The former president made several references to the Capitol Hill riot, taking particular aim at the "un-select committee of political hacks" investigating the incident as part of the Jan. 6 commission. "They are Democratic hacks, and they're vicious, and every one of them voted to impeach me, every one of them. ... It's a disgrace! It's a disgrace to our country, what's happening, and it takes the meaning out of the word," he insisted, noting that Republican Rep. Liz Cheney "now polling at 16%," and Rep. Adam Kinzinger "a crier," both of whom voted in favor of Trump's second impeachment, are also on the select committee.

The former president has taken delight ever since one of the Republicans who supported the impeachment effort announces his or her retirement from politics.
