MAGA Capitol rioter says he ‘can’t believe’ he’s going to jail for Trump

A Capitol rioter and far-right social media troll who is facing prison over the January 6 insurrection is having regrets about supporting Donald Trump.

Tim Gionet, better known as his online persona Baked Alaska, wrote on Twitter yesterday: “I can’t believe I’m going to jail for an NFT salesman”

Trump teased a “major announcement” on his social media platform Truth Social this week.

“AMERICA NEEDS A SUPERHERO! I will be making a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow. THANK YOU!” he posted on Wednesday.

Mr Trump then revealed he was selling digital NFT cards.

Earlier this year, Gionet pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of parading, demonstrating or picketing inside a Capitol building and will be sentenced in January.
