I have heard that ChatGPT leans a little left and I still tend to use it even though I tend to lean a little right. I decided today to put ChatGPT to the test. I asked several questions about recent presidents from Bill Clinton to Joe Biden. Of course, ChatGPT is only trained through 2021 so it could not give a whole lot of information about Biden.
However, I got hung up on one president in particular – President Donald J Trump.
I asked Chat GPT a series of questions about Trump just to see what I’d get and if I’d agree. I mean, after all, since it is owned now by Microsoft and Microsoft is the baby of Bill Gates – who is one of the biggest left-leaning characters in the world … could I prove that ChatGPT leans a little left. I first got the idea that it did in an interview I’d heard with Tucker Carlson and Elon Musk (who was one of the founders of ChatGPT and Open AI).
Here’s the sequence of questions I asked the program …
What is the one thing Donald Trump will most likely be remembered for in history?
Answer: Donald Trump’s presidency was marked by a number of significant events and controversies, but the one thing he is most likely to be remembered for in history is his role in inciting the January 6th, 2021 insurrection at the United States Capitol. Trump repeatedly and falsely claimed that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him, and encouraged his supporters to fight back against the results. On January 6th, a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in an attempt to overturn the election results, resulting in the deaths of several people and widespread damage to the building. Trump’s involvement in the events of January 6th led to his second impeachment by the House of Representatives, though he was ultimately acquitted by the Senate. The insurrection and Trump’s role in it are likely to be viewed as a significant and controversial moment in American political history.
How can we be sure it was trump supporters that stormed the capital on January 6?
Answer: The overwhelming evidence and testimony from law enforcement officials and witnesses at the scene confirm that the individuals who stormed the Capitol on January 6th were largely supporters of Donald Trump. Many of the individuals were seen wearing Trump paraphernalia and carrying flags and banners in support of Trump. Additionally, Trump himself had encouraged his supporters to come to Washington, D.C. on January 6th to protest the election results, and had made comments urging them to “fight” and “never give up” in the face of what he falsely claimed was a stolen election.
Multiple investigations and criminal charges have been brought against individuals who participated in the events of January 6th, including several individuals who have publicly identified themselves as Trump supporters and who have been documented on social media expressing support for Trump and his false claims about the election.
While there have been some claims that left-wing or Antifa activists were involved in the attack on the Capitol, these claims have been widely debunked by law enforcement officials and independent fact-checking organizations. The vast majority of evidence and eyewitness accounts support the conclusion that the individuals who stormed the Capitol on January 6th were Trump supporters.
Didn’t Donald Trump’s farewell speech say something about going to the capital and protesting peacefully?
Answer: Donald Trump did give a farewell speech on January 19th, 2021, the day before President Biden’s inauguration. In that speech, Trump did call for peaceful protests and for Americans to come together. However, it is important to note that this speech occurred after the events of January 6th, 2021, when Trump supporters had already stormed the Capitol building and caused widespread damage and violence. In the weeks leading up to the events of January 6th, Trump had repeatedly encouraged his supporters to come to Washington, D.C. to protest the election results and had made comments urging them to “fight” and “never give up.” These comments were widely seen as inflammatory and contributed to the violent events of January 6th.
While Trump’s farewell speech did call for peace and unity, many critics have argued that it was too little, too late, and that Trump’s earlier comments and actions had already contributed to a dangerous and violent atmosphere in the country. It is also worth noting that some individuals who participated in the events of January 6th have cited Trump’s earlier comments as a motivation for their actions.
Did Donald Trump actually tell his followers to go to the capital and fight and never give up on January 6?
Answer: Yes, Donald Trump did tell his supporters to go to the Capitol and “fight” on January 6th, and his statements are widely seen as having contributed to the violent events that unfolded that day. During a rally earlier in the day, Trump repeated baseless claims that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him, and encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol to protest the election results. In a speech to the crowd, he said:
“We’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women. We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them, because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.”
He also urged his supporters to “fight like hell” and “never give up” in their efforts to challenge the election results. Trump’s comments were seen as inflammatory by many lawmakers and officials, and have been cited as a contributing factor in the violence that erupted at the Capitol later that day.
Can you provide me a copy of Donald Trump’s speech that he gave on January 6?
Answer: Yes, here is a transcript of Donald Trump’s speech at the “Save America” rally on January 6th, 2021, in which he encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol:
“Well, thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you very much. Please, sir. Thank you. This is wild. (Applause.) And this will be my final word, my final speech as President, and what we’ve done has been amazing by any standard. We rebuilt the United States military. We created a new force called Space Force. That in itself would be a major achievement for a regular administration. We were not a regular administration.
I’m especially proud to be the first President in decades who has started no new wars. (Applause.) Above all, we have reasserted the sacred idea that in America, the government answers to the people. (Applause.) I did not seek the easiest course; by far, it was actually the most difficult. I did not seek the path that would get the least criticism. I took on the tough battles, the hardest fights, the most difficult choices because that’s what you elected me to do. (Applause.) Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation. And that means the whole nation.
With the support and prayers of the American people, we achieved more than anyone thought possible. Nobody thought we could even come close. We passed the largest package of tax cuts and reforms in American history. We slashed more job-killing regulations than any administration had ever done before. We fixed our broken trade deals, withdrew from the horrible Trans-Pacific Partnership and the impossible Paris Climate Accord, renegotiated the one-sided South Korea deal, and we replaced NAFTA with the groundbreaking USMCA — (applause) — that’s Mexico and Canada, a very, very big deal, very popular deal. (Applause.) And we imposed historic and monumental tariffs on China. (Applause.)
And all of this was done not by luck, but by skill, and talent, and grit, and determination of the American worker. (Applause.) Our incredible journey is only just beginning.
As I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning. (Applause.) There’s never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle but instead only grow stronger by the day.
As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country, then there is nothing that this nation cannot achieve. Our communities will flourish, our people will be prosperous, our traditions will be cherished, our faith will be strong, and our future will be brighter than ever before.
I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart, an optimistic spirit, and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come. (Applause.) Thank you, and farewell. Thank you very much. Thank you. (Applause.)
Crowd: USA! USA! USA!
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you.
AUDIENCE: (Chanting.) We love you! We love you! We love you! (Applause.)
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. And I can say, this is love. This is — incredible spontaneous love. Really, we had — it’s just a term that we came up with, but it’s much more than that. It’s really a great, great feeling. And I’ll never forget it. (Applause.)
I want to thank
So, where in the above speech does he actually encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol?
Answer: While President Trump did not explicitly instruct his supporters to march to the Capitol and engage in violent behavior, there are some parts of his speech that some people have interpreted as encouraging such actions.
For example, in his speech, he said, “We’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women.” He also said, “We’re going to have to fight much harder” and “You’ll never take back our country with weakness.”
It’s important to note that context and interpretation play a significant role in understanding the meaning of any given statement or speech. While some may interpret certain phrases or statements as an incitement to violence, others may not see it the same way. Ultimately, it’s up to individuals to form their own opinions based on the available evidence and their own interpretations.
But those words you just gave me are not in the speech that you provided … why not?
Answer: I apologize for the confusion. The speech I provided earlier was not the full transcript of President Trump’s remarks on January 6th. Here is a more complete transcript of his speech:
In the speech, President Trump did say, “We’re going to walk down to the Capitol and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women,” which some have interpreted as an encouragement to march on the Capitol. However, he did not explicitly instruct his supporters to engage in violent behavior or to storm the Capitol. It’s also worth noting that earlier in the speech, he said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
I have read the script (see link) a couple of times and noted that when it came to words there were 23 times the word “fight” was mentioned and much of that was by the audience. The word “Violent or Violence” was not mentioned 1 time. The word “Marching or March” was only in the speech 1 time. The word “Protest” was never mentioned and the word “Peacefully” was mentioned 1 time.
Here’s what Congress and ChatGPT wants to hang their hats on as it relates to the investigation into January 6, 2021 and Donald Trump …
Now it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy. After this, we’re going to walk down and I’ll be there with you. We’re going to walk down. We’re going to walk down anyone you want, but I think right here. We’re going walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women. We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.
We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.
How can they (congress and the left) say Donald Trump caused an insurrection and why is ChatGPT not being totally honest with those that use it?
Very Simple – the left must control the narrative in order to win!
As for ChatGPT and other such AI Programs … use it … but don’t let it control your thought patterns. If something does not seem right to you … keep asking questions, just as you would a friend you are having a conversation with.

Jerry, this has to be one of the most revealing things I’ve read in awhile. It’s such a shame that this kind of bunk is allowed to be shoved down the throats of the American people by the left wing nuts. I’ve just about quit reading National news because most is so annoyingly slanted to their agenda and way of thinking it’s sickening.
Thank you for an honest report on this.
Paula, thanks for reading my article on ChatGPT. I’m glad you were able to get something out of it. You keep reading and I promise to keep writing.
Very good big Bubba. You could have been a great writer as you were a great advisor and one of the smartest men I have ever known. My biggest regret is when Crain and AFA called us liars we didn’t go after them and own the company
Hey Lil Man … thanks so much for reading my article on ChatGPT. I use it a lot, but like Elon Said, it does tend to lean left if you let it and don’t keep after it. Overall I am very excited about the Artificial Intelligence that is in the works and am learning to use it for many things. However, there is the lingering fear that the “weak ones” will continue to let it do their thinking for them, like the do the media and politicians today, and that will never be real good for society as we used to know and love it. Things are going downhill in this country fast and I am becoming more and more ashamed of the American People that are simply setting back on their laurels and letting it happen. Oh well, better stop before this turns into one more article.
