Donald Trump launched himself at a Secret Service agent while uttering ‘I’m the f***ing President’ when he was told he wouldn’t be taken to the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Former White House aide, Cassidy Hutchinson, has testified that Trump chucked a proper tantrum when he wasn’t allowed to join supporters during the Capitol insurrection last year.
Hutchinson took to the stand during the sixth January 6 US Capitol riot hearing and described events that occurred in the presidential limousine that day.
Her testimony is based off what she was told by another aide, Tony Ornato.
According to Hutchinson, the President insisted: “I’m the f***ing President, take me up to the Capitol now!”
She alleges Trump also attempted to grab the steering wheel of the vehicle after learning he would not be taken there, before launching at Secret Service agent Bobby Engel
In another damning, yet unsurprising revelation, Hutchinson also revealed that Trump knew very well that his supporters had weapons as they marched to the Capitol building.
Trump became angry when his Secret Service team was screening people for guns and other weaponry.
“I don’t f***ing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the f***ing mags (metal detectors) away. Let my people in," he said, according to Hutchinson.
"They can march to the Capitol from here. Let the people in. Take the f***ing mags away."
Hutchinson’s recount reveals an insight into Trump’s mental state and desperation in attempting to overthrow democracy and keep his Presidency.
Her testimony is important to the case as she is one of the closest links to the Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, who stopped cooperating with the committee after turning over thousands of text messages last year.

Much like the tantrum he chucked in the limo, the former POTUS wasn’t too happy with Hutchinson’s account.
He took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to have a cry and called her a ‘total phony’ and a ‘leaker’.
Trump recalled that he ‘hardly knew’ who Hutchinson was, despite admitting in the same post that he ‘personally turned her request down’ to go with his team to Florida.
He added: “Her Fake story that I tried to grab the steering wheel of the White House Limousine in order to steer it to the Capitol Building is ‘sick’ and fraudulent, very much like the Unselect Committee itself — Wouldn’t even have been possible to do such a ridiculous thing.”
