Children of Maga rioter

During a segment on CNN’s “New Day,” the son of January 6 Capitol rioter Guy Reffitt, of Texas, said that his father deserved the harsh jail sentence he received on Monday for participating in the deadly attack at the behest of then-president Donald Trump, and that Trump himself should join him in prison.

Jackson Reffitt, of Texas, was asked by host Brianna Keilar how he felt after his father was sentenced to 87 months prison for carrying a weapon to the Capitol after attending the “Stop the Steal” rally at the behest of former president Donald Trump.

“How are you feeling? How are you reacting to this sentence?” host Keilar asked.

“I mean, I’m not happy at all, I haven’t been happy to this whole situation. No one in my family has either, but to say I’m surprised would be a lie,” he replied. “I mean, everything my dad did, he’s his own person. and his action has consequences, but I’m not happy at all.”

“Do you think he deserves this length of the sentence?” the CNN host pressed.

“I mean, absolutely, he deserves some time,” he replied. “Whether to — for anything, to rehabilitate, for his mental health, he deserves a lot of safety nets. But, yes, he does.”

Keilar also asked him about his sister’s comments after their father was sentenced, saying that “Trump deserves life in prison if my father is in prison for this.”

“It seems like, you know, your sister Peyton, listening to her, she feels kind of caught in the middle of this,” Keilar prompted. “She’s there at the courthouse, she loves you, she made that clear yesterday. She thinks that your dad, if he’s getting this time, that Trump should be getting some time. What do you say to that?”

“Absolutely,” Reffitt said. “When she said that, I was flabbergasted. Not only was I impressed with her, she’s so right.”

“My dad was used as a puppet, and thousands of families have been,” he said. “Whether you agree with that, it’s a fact at this point. It is disgusting to see that someone with practically money and social power can just get away with manipulating thousands of people just for whatever reason and have no outcome.”
