[In] the White House, as staffers watched in shock at what was unfolding down Pennsylvania Avenue on television screens positioned throughout the West Wing, Trump’s attention was so rapt that he hit rewind and watched certain moments again, according to Stephanie Grisham, a former White House press secretary.

“Look at all of the people fighting for me,” Trump said, according to Grisham, who also served as chief of staff to first lady Melania Trump. At one point, the president was confused why staffers weren’t as excited as he was watching the unrest unfold.

    Seems as if he was surprised. Baffled.

    This is not the reaction of a man seeing his carefully plotted plan coming to fruition.

    Nobody thinks Trump choreographed the rioters' every move. The report didn't say Trump was surprised by the rioters' actions. Trump was reportedly "gleeful".

    Hitler was so happy he did a jig when the Nazis took Paris. Hitler may have been pleasantly surprised at how quickly Paris fell but he knew of the plan.
