This week, we are re-posting our Top 5 programs of 2021 — those that garnered the most "listens."
The second-most-listened-to program featured a speech that continues to be a focus of interest months later: President Donald Trump's speech to a massive "Save America" rally near the White House on January 6.
In that address, Mr. Trump vigorously disputed that former Vice President Joe Biden had won the 2020 presidential election.
He urged the crowd to "peacefully and patriotically" support the U.S. senators who had pledged to object to accepting disputed electoral votes. Mr. Trump also presented a rundown of voting irregularities in swing states that Mr. Biden claimed by narrow margins.
The Trump speech occurred not long before several hundred protesters breached the U.S. Capitol building.
Congressional Democrats, joined by a handful of Republicans, later alleged — in an article of impeachment — that Mr. Trump used his address to incite the crowd to "interfere with [Congress’s] solemn constitutional duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election." The U.S. Senate acquitted Mr. Trump.
This podcast features Mr. Trump's entire address at the January 6 rally, save for the first few seconds when his microphone wasn't working. A transcript of his remarks is at https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/donald-trump-speech-save-america-rally-transcript-january-6
