NOT A SINGLE PERSON (or at least very close to that) in Washington cares at all to bring down the temperature. All they do is raise the temperature CONSTANTLY while calling on the other side alone to lower it.
Even Trump himself did a lot to lower the temperatures and end the Jan 6 siege, if only because he was forced to.

The tweet I posted points out how Trump calling in a statement for all Americans to help ease tension and calm tempers is beyond ridiculous when he is the one who can do more than anybody else to calm them.
If only he would just roll over and die like all the Republicans before him things would get back to normal already...

Gee, I wonder how we got here...

Oh come on. Conceding an election and saying Biden will take office on Jan 20 isn't 'rolling over and dying'. Plenty of democrats have done the same.

And I know you're trying not to notice, but he did serious damage to the Republican Party. Like at their donors and infighting.

Yeah, when it serves their interests they will lower the temperature even though they don't care about that.

Oh, I forgot that US politics first started when Trump lost the election. Never mind then.

Milley has freedom of speech to say he thinks the Constitution is outdated or fake, but it would still be treason, since he has a duty of allegiance.

No it would not be treason unless he did  (or explicitly told someone else to do) something illegal based on that belief. (With regards to the freedom of speech question, I think members of the military lose some of that).

(I know the conversation has moved on, but I missed this post of the conversation when it happened)

Big Lie

I hope you are familiar with the history of this term (especially capitalized) and will be appropriately careful about using it.

Not a single time. The most he said was the 'next administration' will take office in Jan 20.

Treason doesn't require proactive action. Ignoring duty to prevent something is just as treasonous.

Which concession speach uses the word concede? He said that Joe Biden is the next president taking over on the 20th. I don't care if he doesn't use the exact lingo you want him to, it's not going to make a difference anyway. That ship has long sailed.

Trump never said Joe Biden will be the next president, you are simply fabricating that. He many times said Biden won't take office. He made an ambiguous statement saying there will be a 'new administration'. AFAIK every president in history attended his successors inauguration. Just today Trump released a video informing his supporters of future rallies, which the FBI is saying are going to be armed and dangerous. I don't know if his oath absolutely requires him to do it or not, but if he would say unequivically that there is no chance, nothing to rally for, and people can voice their opinion when it safer after Jan 20, it would make an absolutely huge difference.

Good point. They should impeach him a 3rd time. That'll surely help lower the temperature.

In fact it'll finally convince his supporters that he hasn't actually been the victim of a four-year attempt to overturn the 2020 election and remove him from office rather he really is an imminent threat and must be removed from office immediately.

Question for @PlatinumGuy . Feel free not to answer (duh) but I'm just curious.

Where you a Dem supporter before Trump? Or were you a R but decided not to support Trump because of his character and rhetoric?
