Federal authorities this week revealed an angry message sent to Donald Trump by a member of the Proud Boys who was arrested for taking part in the January 6th attack on the US Capitol. The MAGA fan lashed out at the former president after he realized he wouldn’t be getting a pardon for his crimes.
The anguished messages were sent by Proud Boy Ethan Nordean on January 20th after he watched Trump leave office without delivering a blanket pardon to all those who rioted on his behalf weeks earlier, Politico’s Kyle Cheney reports.
“F*CK TRUMP!” he wrote in a social media message. “F*ck him more than Biden. I’ve followed this guy for 4 years and given everything and lost it all.”
Nordean expressed deep disappointment because he believed that the United States was really on the precipice of “some great justice,” only to see it dashed after watching Trump leave office in disgrace.
“So glad he was able to pardon a bunch of degenerates as his last move and sh*t on us on his way out,” he wrote. “F*ck you Trump you left us on the battle field bloody and alone.”
