Couy Griffin, the founder of 'Cowboys for Trump.' gave an interview on OAN and spoke of how he spent a "scary" day in jail after he was arrested for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Griffin has been booted from his position as Otero County Commissioner by a New Mexico judge over his participation in the attack.

One thing we've learned from the Jan. 6 defendants is that they have never heard of the word 'consequences' until after the insurrection. I guess Griffin thought that jail would be a fun place. He should thank his lucky stars that he didn't go to prison. Shit gets real there.

"Oh, Neal, dude, I tell you what, I can't even explain to you how terrible that place was. The bugs in this place," he said. "The walls were just like moving with bugs. Like every different kind of bug that you can imagine. I mean, this place was scary."

The law and order party doesn't seem very law and order-y ever since Jan. 6. If you try to overturn an election while shitty all over democracy, you will be held accountable. No one has ever said that jail is like a vacation. I'm not sure what Griffin thought it would be like in his crazy head.

So far, at least 964 people have been charged in the Capitol insurrection. Amazingly, so many people put their lives on the line for a narcissistic septuagenarian who wears lifts in his shoes to appear taller and has a strong penchant for lying. Donald Trump pardoned the guy who ripped off his supporters in the Build the Wall scheme. He hates his supporters, and they're OK with that.
